Saturday, April 6: Whim W'Him

If you are a modern dance fan, you certainly don't need the Weekly Volcano telling you to check out the Whim W'Him dancers. Whim W'Him (pronounced whim whim), a unique Seattle dance company founded by Olivier Wevers three years ago, takes the Pantages' stage Saturday to shake up your definition

Suzanne’Silver, Wisdom Teeth

Rock is a universal language. Nearly anywhere you travel on this big globe there’ll be rebellious kids (and the young at heart) toiling away at rock and roll. Like Levis, McDonald’s, and Coca-Cola, rock and roll is an American invention that’s taken control of the world. Italy is a long

Friday, April 5: Steve Stefanowicz

In the days before adulthood consumed Steve Stefanowicz, the "Human Jukebox" would perform seven days a week. Blind at birth, proficient on the guitar at 15, performing solo and in his band Blind Ambition, Stefanowicz could be seen nightly through the '80s and '90s, performing any of the 1,000 songs

Saturday, April 6: Dockyard Derby Dames, Season 7, Bout 2

Bodies colliding at high speeds. Bruises, bumps, and (occasionally) broken bones. While the above description may evoke thoughts of the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament, Bobble Tiki is actually waxing roller derby - and specifically Dockyard Derby Dames' season 7, bout 2 Saturday at the Pierce College Health Ed

What you say is what you are

My low-brow sense of humor is no secret. Time and time again I’ve put it on display here in the Weekly Volcano. For as long as I can remember, I’ve been a fan of fart jokes and disgusting sexual banter. It’s been that way since junior high at least, and like

Alan Bryce’s Nightmare

The charging knight behind Federal Way’s Centerstage Theater is an all-around theater guy to his core. As an actor turned director turned playwright and theater operator, the very English Alan Bryce has likely done every job remotely connected to stage performances.

Saturday, April 6: "Beyond Books: the Independent Art of Eric Carle"

Eric Carle's picture books are engaging to the point of being problematic for many parents and child-minders. Kids read them, and become addicted, so by the 17th reading, Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? loses some of its magic to the adult reader, and the pictures go by largely

Treetopia

This week I dropped by Childhood’s End in Olympia where the featured artist is Jiji Saunders. She does colorful landscapes in encaustic on wood. She makes good use of the encaustic media with rough textures and murky depths. Her landscapes are kind of Wolf Kahn-esque. Each painting features a single

The Grand Suggests: "Ginger & Rosa"

In film, I often take the stance that coming-of-age stories about young women are often overdone, over rated and void of any reflection of my own experiences. I have sat tirelessly through stories about teen-age girls that I have no connection with, and can't think of anyone I know who
