Colin A Go Go Birthday Bash

When someone yells, “Birthday!” the League of Liberal Libations members answer that primal call to go out and get over served — no matter who it is, what else may be going on, and if it’s a Sunday. Tacoma karaoke legend Colin celebrated his birthday Sunday at Jazzbones. The League

January jollies

“urinetown” Time to go with the flow. Tacoma Musical Playhouse’s production of “Urinetown” is a cross between “How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying,” “Logan’s Run” and a yeast infection. The play follows the tale of a town that quite literally can’t pee without padding a corporate pocket. [Narrows Theater,

Beyond the headlines

I had a bit of time on my hands over the holidays, so I found myself cruising through television station after station in search of something remotely interesting to watch. I often failed. But one time when I didn’t fail I had clicked over to expanded cable to see the

THE MAN Tacoma companion The fans of Garrison Keillor are a fierce bunch whose radios have for years been tuned religiously on Saturday nights to public radio’s resurrected “A Prairie Home Companion.” And it’s no wonder: A deadpan exemplar of the word “wry,” Keillor has a singular way with the tall tale

Very personal orchestra

Andrew Buelow was happy living in Michigan, where he was the head honcho at the Traverse Symphony Orchestra. His family had a summer home in Traverse when he was growing up in Wisconsin, so he jumped at the chance to move there when the director position opened up at the

Poppy Seed Café

Poppy Seed Café, has been a tasty start to Fircrest’s day for almost two years. Owners and chef Darin Adams and wife, Shelly, load their menu with breakfast staples and a little something extra.

Dynamite Jacks' The I Hate Jill

After a year-and-a-half of commanding a corner of downtown DuPont as the Harbor Rock Bar & Grill, the owners decided to scrap the semi-successful venture, remodel it with mining items bought off eBay, and reopened two weeks ago as Dynamite Jacks. I dashed in from the rain last Friday night and

The Mighty Mighty Bosstones

It’s been five long years since the world has heard anything new from Boston ska-core band The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, but it seems the band’s four-year hiatus might be up with a release of their new album, Medium Rare, last month. A collection of previously unreleased songs and tracks from

ALIEN VS. PREDATOR: REQUIEM: One of the many reasons “Alien” was so effective was the perfect monster it created.  A killing machine that couldn’t be killed.  In fact, when Sigourney Weaver forced the beast out to space at the conclusion of the film, I remember saying to myself, “It’s not

Mastering the masterpieces

“Atonement” begins on joyous gossamer wings and descends into an abyss of tragedy and loss. Its opening scenes in an English country house between the wars are like a dream of elegance, and then a 13-year-old girl sees something she misunderstands, tells a lie, and destroys all possibility of happiness

I predict ...

I’m psychic. Cool, huh? Channeling my psychic powers, I predict that the South Sound will be sick with new music in 2008. I predict new albums on vinyl will make a comeback. I predict that mp3 players will sing Tacoma’s songs. And I predict nightclubs will burst at the seams

My Revolver

Now that I’m back from my year in America’s hippest city, Portland, living in Tacoma, there are many things I’m happy about. I’m happy my rent is cheaper. I’m happy to once again have a 253 prefix. I’m happy to be able to actually feel good about myself again. (In

Thirty fingers of doom

Pianist. There, Bobble Tiki said it. While Bobble Tiki would like to consider himself above snickering like a junior high boy every time he hears the title “pianist,” that’s just not Bobble Tiki. Bobble Tiki’s the kind of tiki who will forever think passing gas is funny, and find equal humor in

Jason Harris

These days it’s here a fireman, there a fireman, everywhere a fireman — but who’s complaining? Not me. Puyallup Fire Station #3 physician assistant Jason Harris, 39, burns down the house with his charisma, personality and community involvement, but his smoldering eyes and washboard abs save me. His fireman coat is back
