Thursday, Dec. 5: "Spark: A Burning Man Story"

Spark: a Burning Man Story is the latest from directors Steve Brown and Jessie Deeter. This engaging documentary gives audiences a rare behind-the-scenes look at Burning Man. "But what is Burning Man, exactly?" you ask. "Is it that movie where Nicolas Cage screams about bees?" No, that's The Wicker Man, but that's a

Theater Review: "Annie" at Tacoma Musical Playhouse

Try as we might, we critics look forward to some productions more than others. From our perspective, the newer, more cutting-edge shows cluster in late spring and summer, as do the Shakespeares and edgier musicals. Autumn ushers in every new theater season with tried-and-true popular favorites, and as for the

Erev Rav, Weekly Volcano's reader-voted Best Band of 2012, are playing in Olympia for the first time since summer. A few cool changes have taken place: New members include Aaron Wolf on tenor sax from The Brown Edition (another Volcano winner), James Schneider of Hot Club Sandwich on bass and

Sunday, Dec. 8: "Music From Planet Cool" CD Release Party

Generally, music intended for children is perky, chipmunk-y, condescending, cloying and unlistenable for anyone old enough to cut his or her own meat. Most kids' music seems designed to tell ham-handed moral lessons about sharing, being polite, and buying as much Disney-produced plastic material as possible. Enter Kim Archer (cue:

Saturday, Dec. 7: Girl Trouble Christmas Show

So much has been said about the classic Tacoma punk band Girl Trouble that very little more needs to be said. For anyone not in the know, this is the most badass band still working in Tacoma. KP Kendall still performs shirtless. The band still fights the good fight against

Saturday, Dec. 7: Bacon Moon

When I wrote about Bacon Moon, back in 2010, I compared them to Guided By Voices. Much like Robert Pollard's drunken pop music wonder-band, Bacon Moon have a knack for finding indelible pop melodies in the middle of lo-fi rattling. Since that write-up, Bacon Moon have edged further into experimental

Monday, Dec. 9: Historian

The first words I saw describing Historian painted them as a mixture between Arcade Fire's Win Butler and (everyone's dreams') Nick Cave. Those are deeply enticing words, and so I was bound to listen. The truth is, those fantastic descriptors don't quite describe what Historian is all about. That dangerous

A grand road trip through real America

Tinseltown suffered a heavy blow last week with the tragic death of Paul Walker. I'll resist the temptation to call him a "great thespian," a "master of his craft" or any of the other tried and true cants that frequently appear in celebrity eulogies. I'll just point out that in

Fingerless gloves were an invention intended to improve the ability to wrap your digits around hot mugs. Well, that's only a fraction of the truth. They are meant to improve dexterity of your fingers, which applies the same concepts; take from that what you will. So, naturally, with rumors of

Gifts: Shopping in Puyallup

When you think of shopping in Puyallup, your first thought is likely of South Hill Mall and big box stores - endless big box stores. But don't sell Puyallup short. Downtown Puyallup near the fairgrounds is the farthest thing from a master-planned and commercially developed boomtown. Downtown Puyallup is absolutely
