Uniting all three components of the Army

This week, the U.S. Army I Corps hosted a senior leadership summit at Joint Base Lewis-McChord. The main focus was total force integration - increasing cooperation between active duty military, the National Guard and the Army Reserve. The event pulled in generals from up and down the West Coast, Hawaii

Scary walk in the dark at Joint Base Lewis-McChord

The annual Walk in the Dark Halloween event turned parts of Shoreline Park on Joint Base Lewis-McChord into a truly frightening experience starting Oct. 16. The event, which is used to generate funds for the JBLM Better Opportunities for Single Service Members program, is put together and staffed almost exclusively by

Friday, Oct. 24: Shayla Renee

Friday night should be a wild one at Cultura Event Center in Tacoma, as the scantily clad Shayla Renee hosts her record release party for her debut, Nothin' Nice. The Seattle-area native and modelesque rapper/singer is representing the epitome of sex, "ratchetness" and materialism - and of course that's what people are

Friday, Oct. 24: The Little O and his Lonely One Man Folk-Punk Band

The Little O and his Lonely One Man Folk-Punk Band is a wonderfully self-referential project. As the one-man band in question, the Little O is a self-styled caricature of a rambling troubadour. Most of his songs are titled with variations on "The Little O Sings About (Blank)," essentially rendering him

Friday, Oct. 24: Hermit Thrushes

Something tells me Hermit Thrushes aren't particularly concerned about whether or not you "like" them. Sounding like a cross between Captain Beefheart's elegant experimentalism and the Shaggs' aggressive non-conformity, Philadelphia's Hermit Thrushes possess the sort of innate musicality that might make you believe that they're just making shit up as

Saturday, Oct. 25: Phobos & Deimos

The genius thing about the subgenre of post-punk is that we now have bands like Phobos & Deimos who can mine inspiration from a vibrant variety of bands that existed during this period. "The guitarist Zac Webb and I had been friends for years," says Phobos & Deimos singer Hans Burger.

The Magic Flute is set in an unnamed fantasyland, but this production benefits from local stylistic influences. Tacoma Opera drew inspiration from the art and culture of Pacific Northwest Salish tribes, with valuable assistance from the Puyallup tribe in particular. The event's web page notes the

Halloween drinks and eats

Like most Pacific Northwest women in my general age bracket, I adore the autumn season. Scarves, hats, boots, pumpkin-flavored everything, falling leaves and Halloween! I always buy the kids' costumes a size too big so I can bundle them up underneath, and they look like wee puffy marshmallow monsters terrorizing

Dressing to scare this All Hallows Eve? Of course you are. You're cool like that. So why not take your sexy, imaginative duds to a joint where they'll be appreciated? Damn right we're referring to ... the opera. We'll give you a minute to let that sink in. Surely we meant

The muscular post-punk of Phobos & Deimos

There was a period of a couple years, when I was most entrenched in my exploration of music criticism and the brave new world of music classification, when I would introduce a band to my dad and attempt to describe them through a list of newspeak subgenres. My dad, being
