Danii Blackwell looks good

Danii Blackwell shows off her style at the Nordstrom fashion show at the Museum of Glass, though she is, in point of fact, not wearing anything from Nordstrom. Her wool knickers, old-school type that I can remember wearing in the mid-eighties, though never with that much confident élan, came from Chinatown. The

Rock me, ‘Amadeus’

A lesser person would think that a play named “Amadeus” would be about that composer dude who wrote “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star” before he had his first blemish and hammered out the score of some of the world’s best musical works before he had the obligation to shave his face.

Rachel Corrie and Robin Hood

Rachel Corrie “My Name is Rachel Corrie” is a telling play about a Olympia native who traveled to the Gaza Strip to aid Palestinians in 2003 only to die at a protest when a bulldozer crushed her. Her story became headline news around the world and shed light on the struggles

Sister Spit, surfing and more

THE STAGE Last chance This is the last weekend to see Capital Playhouse’s thumping musical “Ain’t Misbehavin.’“ The Tony Award-winning musical chronicles the music, the time and the life of one Mr. Thomas Waller, who would go down in history as Fats. The show has his hit works “Honeysuckle Rose,” “Ain’t Misbehavin,’”

Give the Broadway Center your mind

The high-pitched squeal of feedback is not a sound you want to hear on stage, but behind the scenes the people at Broadway Center for the Performing Arts are collecting feedback of a different kind. The Broadway Center board has some younger hipper members now who would like to bring

Afternoon delight

This week I was able to sneak something in that I really, really enjoy — I like to call it Afternoon Delight. I’m sorry to let you down by saying that it doesn’t include early evening sex, but sometimes it’s just as much fun. I love to take a sleepy Saturday and

Home of the brave

Now that the nightlife circuit in Tacoma is really starting to fill in as more and more bars and lounges take their seat here, a new lease on life is coming to establishments that have deserved our attention all along. Meconi’s Pub and Eatery, and Vin Grotto Café and Wine Bar

Magick, eggs and Ostara

Crescent Moon Gifts thrums with the energy of shoppers milling about, asking questions of “Shoppe Keeper” Angela Wehnert during a time that’s traditionally not busy.  Later, Wehnert explains that the energy in the space had been oppressive to her that morning, “heavy.” So she smudged the store to clear the

Expect the expected

“So the cashier at Burger King is about to hand you your food, and you’re expecting her to tell you, ‘Have a nice day,’ and so you’re already thinking, ‘You, too,’ but instead she says, ‘Enjoy Your Meal.’ And you say, ‘You, too.’” Brian Regan has built himself into one

Focus on Jim

Jim Campbell’s show at the Museum of Glass has me stumped. I don’t possess the kind of scientific brain it must take to fully understand or appreciate his message or methods. But I do find the work fascinating. Campbell is an engineer, inventor and video artist. He worked on Francis Ford

Bryant Speer, Brian Woobank, and lots of hair

When Salon Benjamin gets involved in doing the hair for the fashion show thrown by Red Line Style at Syren Lounge Saturday, March 31, there may be some tufts of brightness to see — courtesy of some extension magic.  Bryan Woobank, whose goal is to see Federal Way turn to

Style, South Hill style Talent scout eyes scoured the hopefuls at the South Hill Mall last week to determine who would be the best and the brightest stars of the Spring Fashion Show at Macy’s Court Saturday, March 31, at 1 p.m. Unlike the past event at the Tacoma Mall, hopeful models

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

Sunday, Aug. 25: Ten Tiny Dances

Imagine sitting close enough to a stage to feel the breeze off a dancer's pirouette, or to hear the shuffle of feet and the sound of bodies as they rise and fall. Now imagine watching these dancers on a 4-by-4 foot stage. This is the appeal of Ten Tiny

Saturday, Aug. 24: The Cutwinkles

Without slipping into needless hyperbole, I'm just going to go ahead and say that the Cutwinkles are a Tacoma institution. Formed at the Tacoma School of the Arts about a decade ago, they established themselves as a genuinely unique entity in these parts. Armed with an unhealthy preoccupation with video

Friday, Aug. 23: The Bottlecap Boys

As much as I've always enjoyed the tone of bluegrass, I've tended to think that a lot of the bands in that genre more often than not sound very similar. There's not much distinction, I've found. While The Bottlecap Boys are planted firmly in the bluegrass niche - with some

Unicorns and Kissy Giraffes

The older I get, the less interest I have in music taking itself so seriously, or having other people chastise me for not always taking music seriously. On occasions when I've DJ'd, I always put on a mash-up of "Rockin' Robin" and "Smells Like Teen Spirit" to gauge the room.

Last Call Party

In 2009, Olympia native Molly Sjoboen got together with a few friends to start the Olympia Pub Crawl, a benefit for childhood cancer research. They had a good run, got some attention and made a modest $200. The group grew, the awareness spread and the tally rose from $250 in 2010
