>>> Friday, March 15 DWELL HOLE I cannot wait for this show. While full disclosure requires me to tell you my husband is the bass player for Olympia's Mosquito Hawk, my personal disclosure is to tell you I'm more excited to go to a house show in Tacoma, especially one with such

Are our gay bars dumps?

If you’re not supposed to judge a book by its cover, then is it fair to judge a gay community by its bars? What could a person assume about the South Sound’s gay community when walking into Tacoma’s Club Silverstone or Jakes on 4th in Olympia for the first time?

For many women fashion is the obvious choice over function. Crunching our toes into narrow boots or developing hypothermia to show off a cute top is completely worth it to look glamorous. Most men have the opposite approach to style. Wearing sweats and old moldy T-shirts that women have begged

Escape to the islands

Lakewood Playhouse is currently staging the Caribbean-themed musical Once On This Island. The acting was solid but not overall stellar. The singing was good, with a few mulligans here and there. The set design was simple but effective. All that totaled up, and I loved it more than the sum

Where credit is due

I feel it is my duty, friends, to reveal a scourge, a plague if you will, that has been far-reaching throughout the land and is getting much worse: credit card processing services. You know the companies that give you the convenience of using your credit or debit card at your

Feast or fiction

Stadium Bistro Chef Peter Weikel laughed. He laughed for a long time. Then his business partner and father, Peter (same name) laughed too. They shared a nice family moment as I sat there dumbly waiting for an answer. “No, seriously,” I prodded after a few more seconds. “Describe for me what

Evening of Keys IX

Something about the way a keyboard sounds - its fluid quickness, lofty crescendos and slow tickles, and its pounding, amplified rhythms - makes it the perfect accompaniment to any band in any genre. It's like adding lace to leather. But sometimes the keyboard needs to stand alone, black and white keys

What's The Word?: El Potrero is back on the hip-hop scene

Hip-hop is in full swing in Tacoma. There are often shows at The New Frontier Lounge, The Loch's, Jazzbones, El Potrero, Latitude 84, Backstage Bar & Grill, Vinum and O'Malley's. I'm sure I'm missing a couple other spots. I feel as if hip-hop has finally broken through in Tacoma. There

Tacoma Little Theatre to stage The Joy Luck Club

You might remember the title from movie previews in 1993. You might have read the book ... or rather your mom read it. Even if you've done neither, you've likely heard of The Joy Luck Club, the modern classic by Amy Tan about four young Chinese-American women, their traditional Chinese

Remembering Rachel Corrie

At least twice a week I walk by The Mural Speaks! - a 4,000 square foot painting that depicts a giant olive tree with its branches extending across the brick wall on the corner of State Avenue and Capitol Way in Olympia, around the globe to sister-city Rafah, Palestine, where

Then and Now: Alumni Art Exhibit at South Puget Sound Community College

I was not impressed with the images on the invitation to the alumni art show at South Puget Sound Community College, but when I walked into the gallery I was pleasantly surprised. Not that it is all great - there are some pretty bland and traditional pastel and watercolor landscapes

Vet ink: Military-inspired Tattoos

VANCOUVER, Wash. - Jeremy Hubbard's best friend and two cousins literally have his back. Their names and faces are tattooed there, along with the dates they were killed in action. Friends call Hubbard modest and unpretentious. As a veteran, he understands the sacrifices that accompany a military

St. Patrick's Day Command Center

Pat was born in 387 A.D. in Britain as Maewyn Succat.  At 16 he was kidnapped and sold into slavery in Ireland.  He escaped six years later and studied in Tours, France, to become a priest.  In 431 A.D. Pope Celestine I named him Patricius and sent him back to

Art everywhere

Watch out when you’re walking, you might step on the art. It’s all over the place, more often than not hidden in plain sight. Sometimes hidden by virtue of being overly familiar; your eyes just take it in and spit it out without ever processing it through the brain. Like
