Adrian's legacy

Club Adrian is what you might call the underdog of the Tacoma underage music scene — not quite as hip as Viaduct nor as publicized as Club Impact, but none the less frequented in droves by scenesters of the local all-ages music scene. I’ve often heard rumors of its existence,

Ruston combustion

Un-ring the bell A $1.1 million grant that would have been used to house prisoners in Pierce County has been pulled by the state department of Community, Trade and Economic Development. Grant recipients Citizens for Responsible Justice would have used the money to establish high-risk offender reentry housing in Tacoma’s Hilltop

Temple of the Tempest

With our current nightlife scene continuing to bust at the seams with more and more places to nosh and sip, it’s easy to become attention deficit and get lured away from the places that really matter. Well, Tacoma, leave it to me to stand on top of the bar and crack

House full of dudes

This week everyone’s favorite Carmen went through a roller coaster of ups and downs, but wouldn’t you know, I survived as always. Here’s what happened: Wednesday was Roommate Ian’s birthday, and we ascended upon the Top of Tacoma like a swarm of bees. Joining in on the fun were Ryan, Rosie, Aimee,

Vince Vaughn's working hard

Vince Vaughn’s Wild West Comedy Show Vince Vaughn’s Wild West Comedy Show: 30 Days & 30 Nights — Hollywood to the Heartland is a documentary that follows actor Vince Vaughn as he hosted four comedians on an old west variety show style comedy tour that traveled more than 6,000 miles while

Don't be Fool-ed with this flick

The ads would have you believe Fool’s Gold is pure rom-com, with two sunkissed alpha babes trading patter and pratfalls on their way to renewed love, but there is more to it than that. Oh, nothing intrusive like depth or character development — those would be about as welcome here

Ask Amy Alkon

A wrinkle in timing I'm 25, and work in film and TV. Last year was my first year of consistent employment. I'm producing my first documentary, but I still have a long, brutal climb ahead. My girlfriend of a year is extremely pretty, kind, and smart, and has supported me in

Glass Candy

According to Glass Candy’s MySpace page, the band resides in Hustle Town, USA. By the sound of their beat, Hustle Town must be a pretty sexy place. In truth, Glass Candy calls Portland home, a city far hipper than it is sexy. But that’s not important. Glass Candy will be heading our

Horrorpops

Danish band the Horrorpops released their third album Kiss Kiss Kill Kill, earlier this month, bringing to the punk rock world a true genre mixed sound. Subtitled 12 Tales About Love and Horror, the album starts out strong with stand up bass and twangy guitar typical of their psychobilly and

Go green

Your whole life you’ve been forced to make tough decisions: Dasani or Arrowhead? Paper or plastic? Duh, neither. Consider yourself liberated. Bottled water is the single largest growth area among all beverages, including alcohol, juices and soft drinks. According to the Beverage Marketing Corporation, per capita consumption has more than

Team Unicorn at the Pot

Last week the Weekly Volcano took a huge step. You probably noticed. We’re bigger now, and we cover news. We’re a big, sexy, alternative press paper Tacoma can call its very own. Let’s be honest. One of the reasons the Weekly Volcano could take such a huge step is the overall

Know new punk

As I’ve proven time and time again here at the Weekly Volcano, I’m not above a cheap but entertaining angle. I have no qualms about reporting on something of debatable merit if I think it’ll make for humorous copy. It’s one of my patented moves, and probably one of the

Glimpsing Tacoma

Tacoma businessman Steven Naccarato recently decided to reinvent himself. The local entrepreneur’s recent projects, with his brother, have been in the restaurant business. The two opened downtown’s Pacific Grill, and until last April, also operated the Beach House restaurant (the former Pearl’s by the Sea) in Purdy. But Steven Naccarato’s

Half the life, triple the fun

It seems only fitting that Lakewood Playhouse is staging How the Other Half Lives around Valentine’s Day — and I’m sure the theater planned it at a time that I’m marking my 10th year with my wife. All things revolve around me don’t they? Anyway, the theater is putting on the

Strange combinations

Interesting show: Jason Greene, Molly Wolfe and Jeremy Bert at Black Front Gallery in Olympia. Wolfe and Bert complement one another nicely. Wolfe works with glass and found objects, Bert with recycled neon signs. Both are showing objects that are iconic and that seem to combine an early industrial look

I will miss Nevele

In this business you can’t help but make friends with some of your customers. Many customers see you more during the week than the closest of your immediate family. You tell them your secrets; they tell you theirs. On occasion you slide them a drink on the house and ask

Sundays with UNO

I don’t normally find myself out in the sticks, since I’m more of a city boy when it comes to beer drinking. Yeah, I find myself at the local watering hole while I walk my dog through the neighborhood, and that isn’t all that urban. But that’s an exception. When it

Pinwheel Catering's Herban Cafe

You can tell the moment you walk into the new Pinwheel Catering’s Herban Cafe this is a place where people linger, where they come with newspapers and laptops in the morning, and drink coffee and eat sandwiches or scones until well into the afternoon. Today, the second day of business
