Thursday, Oct. 2: Tacoma Arts Month Opening Party

Have you heard? Tacoma's gargantuan feast of literary, visual and performing arts has moved from November to October. That's right; October is Tacoma Arts Month (formerly Art at Work Month), but the festivities actually starts Oct. 2 with an opening party and the AMOCAT Arts Awards presentation at the Tacoma

Thursday, Oct. 2 and Sunday, Oct. 5: "From Here To Eternity The Musical"

One of our most notable musical offerings this time around is a movie ... sort of. Y'know how a company called Fathom Events beams one-night-only screenings to movie theaters? In addition to RiffTrax commentaries and Metropolitan Opera productions, that service also transmits the occasional show from London's West End. This

Friday, Oct. 3: "I'm Now: The Story of Mudhoney"

Mudhoney, while beating its fellow flannel-powered pedigree to the punch - Sub Pop released vinyl anthem "Touch Me, I'm Sick" and Superfuzz Bigmuff 12 months before Nirvana's Bleach and three years before Nevermind and Pearl Jam's Ten - has never had a chart topper, but the group has a following

On the first day of autumn I sat with a dozen eggs to, once and for all, confirm or dispel the nagging question of whether or not eggs will stand unaided on the autumnal equinox. What I had was scrambled eggs for breakfast. What is guaranteed is that fall is
