Quality shows this week

Thursday COUNTRY kari ehli “American Idol” runners-up piss me off.  They are so pompous and self-absorbed. I can’t stand the fact that the majority of them haven’t paid any dues and suddenly they are stars.  However, if I had to pick the next “American Idol” it would probably be Lakewood’s own Kari

"America's Sweetheart" silent film star was not actually an American, and was not really named Mary Pickford. Born Gladys Smith in Toronto, she started working on stage at age 5 and made her first movie at 16. Although she continued playing children's roles into her 30s, Pickford was a tough

It's winter (duh!) and flower lovers have a bad case of Seasonal Affective Disorder. For these folks, artificial won't do; it's just a countdown to spring. Ah, but there are a few plants that flourish indoors during the cold months to keep you smiling - and they're not plastic.  Green

Through March 21: "Global Perspective"

And then you just stop. You stop whatever it is you're doing and you sit back and you inhale slowly and you just sort of decide, right then and there, to shift everything around, just a little, to look beyond your world and connect with more energized fervor and realize

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

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

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
