Meeting Peter Buck

It’s a new week, which means it’s time for a new edition of Bobble Tiki’s South Sound music notes column. Let’s get rolling … First, before we gaze forward, Bobble Tiki would like to take a moment to look back — way back, in fact, to last Friday’s Minus

Spreading it around

A Leaf is a band that produces the kind of hushed folk rock that’s made for lazy summer days sleeping in the park. Dreamy vocal harmonies slip in and out and about the dulcet guitar strums, shuffling drums and piano flutters. Most of their songs meander along pleasantly, and as

Band Together Tacoma

Sadly, in this world full of emails and instant messages, text messages and status updates, MySpace bulletins and Twitter tweets, it’s something I rarely do anymore. Stop dead in my tracks to take note of a show flyer, whether it’s pasted to the inside of a club, stuck to

Odd Oz

Ok, a bit of my history with Wizard of Oz is likely in order. I was a winged monkey in the Department of Defense’s Camp Walker Community Theater-Taegu, South Korea production of the show some 30 years ago. I had a bit part where my wings were painted with florescent

Clear dilemma

Phillip Panagos would really like to recycle the 30- or 40-gallon containers full of glass that Matador produces every day. As general manager of the tequila bar chain’s Tacoma operations, Panagos is in charge of a lot of things. One of those things is making sure the restaurant stays profitable,

Saturday, Feb. 4: Death By Stars

The string of words that make up the name Death by Stars sounds at once full of portent and utterly frivolous. This dichotomy seems to seep into and help define the band's music as well. Combining the biggest, most direct qualities of punk, electronica and psych-rock, Death

Second Childhood

Betty Jo Fitzgerald has been making art a long time. I’ve been familiar with her work since about 1990, but there’s something quite different about her latest work at the appropriately named Childhood’s End Gallery in Olympia. It looks like she’s entered her second childhood. This art is playful, joyful

Pros and cons

It’s time for The Grand Cinema to expand. That’s good news for local movie buffs, who will have an extra screen and some other amenities to enjoy if all goes as planned. But it also means that The Grand Impromptu Gallery, which occupies adjacent space at the Grand’s home, the

Ethnic Fest

Spanish is one of the most widely spoken languages in the world.  This makes it cool, because you can see all of the different ways it adapted as it spread around the world. Spaniards pronounce c’s as a “th.” Argentineans say a “y” sound using a “juh.” In Costa Rica,

Tacoma welcomes the GLBT Book Club

Around these parts, Valentine's Day typically equals heart-shaped boxes of chocolates, red roses and inedible candies imprinted with sentiments of love that read more like text messages: HI LOVE, UR 2 NICE, etc.  In amorous Spain, Catalonia to be precise, Valentine's Day is superseded by the late-April holiday La Diada de

Hipster's guide to love on Valentine's Day

Oh, hello. Sorry, I didn't see you over there, surreptitiously gazing at me with your weird little bedroom eyes. Something you are no doubt asking yourself is, "Who is that oddly alluring man? What is his secret? Why am I so inconceivably drawn to him?" Firstly, I commend you on your

Review: "Hair" at Capital Playhouse

The musical Hair is much like a jam band concert: it's multi-sensual, it elicits an emotional ride, and it's probably about 15 minutes too long. That said, director Heidi Fredericks shakes every last nugget from Hair's theatrical dime bag at Capital Playhouse. If directors are reading, please take note of a

"Dawn of 2012" impresses at Fulcrum Gallery

  There's quite a range of imagery and styles in the new show at Fulcrum Gallery, Dawn of 2012. The show features emerging artists - a loosely defined and often over-used term that generally means artists who have not yet received the recognition they deserve. Some of us are emerging all
