Many have met at The Spar

Beer joints aren’t like regular businesses. People don’t laugh and share good times in hardware stores. But they do in beer joints. People don’t meet new friends or lovers among the racks of sweaters at the Gap. But they do at beer joints. People don’t feel at home in a

Musicals and Halloween

THE ART Thursday Art Walk If it seems like it has been far too long since you sported your beret, parked the SUV and pulled the stret-cred ‘66 Bonneville out of the garage and did a downtown art crawl, you would be right: The gap between Third Thursdays has been a lengthy

Brothers Davy and Peter Rothbart, are driving in their car. They are bringing the FOUND “There Goes the Neighborhood Tour” to Olympia’s Capitol Theatre on Wednesday, Oct. 24, but in the meantime they have plenty of road to cover. They carry a guitar and a bunch of slips of paper,

Classical, Antique Sundays

These are the standard sounds of the restaurant on this Sunday afternoon: the hiss and rumble of the espresso machine, the metal-on-stoneware “tink” as food is eaten, the indistinct snippets of conversation melding with the rumble of the Harley Davidson motorcycles outside. And then, from one motorcycle’s sound system Black Sabbath

You too can be an activist

B.J. Honeycutt is coming to town. He’s ready to make changes in this world, and he wants you to join in the fight. If the name doesn’t ring a bell, B.J. Honeycutt was Hawkeye Pierce’s buddy on “M*A*S*H” (played by actor Mike Farrell, more recently known as the kindly veterinarian

Behind Moctezuma's

The tale Maribel Garcia tells is the sort of story that becomes a legend as years pass. It’s the story of a boy in Mexico with 17 siblings. He begins working at five years of age to help his family meet expenses. The boy’s parents can’t fund his education, so he

'Macbeth' is mac-daddy of darkness

I still shudder when I think about the completely dark and wonderfully gripping version of "Dracula" Olympia\'s Harlequin Productions did a few years back. It was early 2004 if you don’t remember. The theater staged a version of the blood-sucking tale of Victorian oppression and sexual frustration about a decade

Two treats in Olympia

“Sweeney Todd” “Sweeney Todd: the Demon Barber of Fleet Street” is a great show with a compelling cast that draws audiences in as the efficient barber cuts a bit too close from time to time and turns his former customers into, well, just try to watch the show and then eat

What a Ketcham

I ran into a friend from an art class at the University of Washington, Tacoma. I took the class because I needed an art credit for my minor in education. Burk Ketcham took the class to workshop some socially conscious art that he was creating for United for Peace, Pierce

No shotgun for me

I rarely toss the word discrimination around, but this week I have to. Here in the United States of America we the people are often discriminated against due to race, class, gender, religion, sexual orientation and so on. But I have one more category to add to that list that’s been getting

Regents Boulevard

Weekly Volcano is perplexed. The News Tribune’s series on South Tacoma Way was fine and dandy. However, they missed the boat completely. Regents Boulevard is the greatest street in the universe. It deserves a million words a week in print. Probably a trillion. Ah Regents, where the curbs are exquisitely painted the

Top of Tacoma Bar

I’m winning. I invested in Tacoma five years ago amid such scrutiny for locating in Tacoma, let alone choosing to buy a home on the Eastside. Now, the home I purchased has more than doubled in value and I’m just 1.5 miles away from a downtown that’s bustling with life and options. Along

Repeat worthy

I visited the Tacoma Art Museum again last week. Having already seen most of what’s on display, I went back to see what I’d missed and re-view shows I’ve already written about. Guess what. Mary Randlett’s Puget Sound landscape photographs are still as hauntingly beautiful as ever, and the quilts

Haunted House round up

A big bowl of spook can be found in Auburn. "The House of Terror Haunted House at the SuperMall" runs now through Halloween. This is a house where no expense was spared to clear the bladders and the bowels of those who attend. The price for The House of Terror

The fright stuff & son

Editor\'s note: New permit laws have forced the closure of the Sanford & Son Haunted house for 2007. Anyone who drives around in Tacoma’s Theater District has probably noticed some mysterious A-board signs that have popped up along Ninth Avenue and Broadway. They read "Haunted House Here: 745 St. Helens — Oct.

Radiohead

With each Radiohead album, the listener is introduced to a completely unique musical experience. From The Bends to Hail to the Thief, Radiohead shifts in an entirely different musical direction. These are not only shifts in musical style but also shifts in the emotions the music invokes in the listener.

No End In Sight

A documentary featuring devastating testimony from men and women who had top government or military jobs, had responsibility in Iraq or Washington, implemented policy, filed reports, labored faithfully in the service of U.S. foreign policy, and then left the government. Some jumped, some were pushed. They all feel disillusioned about

Local music on the airwaves

There is a steady throb emanating from deep within the belly of the student union building at University of Puget Sound. The sound comes from a dark cave-like corner of the basement that is hidden behind a door that is cloaked in band stickers and show posters. The sign on
