Though the Weekly Volcano is certainly a city kid at heart, we like to let the wild things in every once in awhile. And what better way than listening to animals speak?

Ice Box Contemporary Art is doing just that. “Speak,” an installation by Joseph Miller, is a conversation between a few forest animals and you, the viewer. Miller uses forged steel to examine how we filter and mediate our environment.

Steel is worth a thousand words, or something.

[Ice Box Contemporary Art, Thursday, Feb. 15, 7-9 p.m., March 3 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., or by appointment, 301A Puyallup Ave., Tacoma, 206.856.7114]

‘A River & Sound Review’

The Weekly Volcano’s work is never done (or appreciated). Not only do we painstakingly plan out your evening itinerary, lazybones, but we're also required to unearth activities that appeal to all personality types. Today, our little spotlight focuses on two categories of people: bookworms and music, er, worms.

Bookworms, because you're quiet and generally have manners, you get to go first. Your activity is to enter the “Name That Book” and “Head to Head Shakespeare Trivia Challenge” at “A River & Sound Review” show tonight. Also on the show will be presentations by authors Rick Barot, Julie H. Case, and Jill Escalera.

Don't worry, musicworms, the Weekly Volcano hasn't forgotten about you. Your event happens also to be part of “A River & Sound Review.” Singer/songwriter Jerin Flakner will push the authors off the stage and prove her knack for intelligent storytelling.
