Thursday, Jan. 2: Fireside Book Group discusses "The Brilliant Disaster"

The year 2013 marked the 50th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy's assassination. Arguably one of this country's greatest presidents, there are many questions left to be answered about what happened that day in Dallas, Nov. 22, 1963. Although his assassination casts a long shadow over his time on this

Friday, Jan. 3: A Lunch Break Story Time For Adults

When I was a kid, I used to love having a story read to me. Lolita Curious George was one of my favorites. But then, when I grew up, nobody wanted to read to me! Not my parents, not my grandparents and certainly not Santa, who found it odd I

Friday, Jan. 3-Saturday, Jan. 4: The Blackberry Bushes and The Pine Hearts

I did my usual rounds of checking Facebook and fliers, I asked a few friends what was going on, and yet, I still couldn't find any awesome music happening the first weekend of the year. The after-holiday slump strikes again. Then, just as I should have anticipated, The Pig Bar

Visual Edge: 2014 art kick-off

Excuse this old reviewer, but there's not much of anything showing this week that I want to review and haven't already, but there are a lot of interesting shows scheduled for early in the year 2014. The new exhibition that just opened in The Gallery at Tacoma Community College is called

Saturday, Jan. 4: Lures

Listening to Lures' latest single, "Vacant," and noting that it was released in October, it's hard not to think that they missed the prime release date by a couple months. Lures' brand of energetic surf pop is ideal to be danced to all summer long. Relaxed vocals croon over churning

Friday, Jan. 3: The Mama Rags

From the '60s to their last waltz in '76, the Band was irreplaceable in formalizing a Northerners' take on Southern rock that was less about passing trends and swilling beer than it was about a reverence for the form and the tradition. These elements were already on their way to

Indigo Girls march on

If you ever find yourself doubting the vitality and reach of the Indigo Girls, there's a video I'd like to share with you. It's a clip from a music show from the late '80s called Night Music, hosted by David Sanborn and Jools Holland and predating Holland's own long-running musical

Weekly Volcano 2013 Theater Awards: Carvies and Varnies

We're not awful people, we swear! It bums us out to deflate the work of theatrical colleagues and friends. That's why I was delighted to add the "Carvies," a roster of exceptional work in Olympia, to my review schedule in 2010 and in every December since. Now I've encouraged Joann

Wednesday, Jan. 15: Violinist Benjamin Beilman

Here's one successful male musician not drowning in bottles of Alize, Escalades or girls, girls, girls. Benjamin Beilman takes his craft very seriously.

Tuesday, Jan. 14: Classical Tuesdays with Michael Partington

You're exchanging trail mix recipes with the Mountaineers Club folks when this mellow, Spanish transcendental lullaby creeps through the club's doorway and swirls around your soul. Instantly, thoughts of Madrid at midnight lighten your spirits. You drop your pen and waterproof notepad, and like a zombie saunter out the door

Sadly, it appears that e-mail has killed the art of the postcard (Good Lord! I sound more like my grandfathers with each passing day). When my friends go on vacation, I no longer receive postcards. Instead, I receive e-mails from Hotmail and Yahoo accounts sent from far-flung Internet cafes (my
