Through Aug. 8: Benjamin Cobb

Most glass artists the Weekly Volcano runs with make pipes. So is not the case with Benjamin Cobb, who opens what should be a captivating show Saturday at the Traver Gallery in Tacoma. Letting the study of the human body inspire his work and creating sleek and sexy gaze-stealers, Cobb

The future of grocery stores

I stumbled across an article on the web recently that got me thinking. It was about grocery trends in 2010 and what to expect. The article was pretty accurate as to what was happening currently in the business, but that's not to tough to predict when you write the

Punk rock by proxy

Punk rock moments in my life: Seeing a guitarist stumble and bust a hole in the wall at the now-defunct Stereolounge. Refereeing wrestling matches in the dark on a Hilltop lawn, resulting in People Under the Sun's James Jenkins consecutively pinning three competitors. Every visit I ever made to the Alano Club. Unfortunately, of

Saturday, July 10: Peabody Preservation Party

An art house for the young, the lowbrow, even the highbrow, and the in between - artists and patrons. Hasn't Tacoma tried this before? Indeed, it has, and although most previous efforts are now gone, they still hold an important place in Tacoma's collective artistic history. That's exactly why the

Through Oct. 12: "Busytown"

The musical opens with the "Busytown Theme," which introduces the characters in a cute and energetic way. Very quickly, Huckle Cat (one of the roles played by the fabulous Kate Ayers) wonders "What Do People Do All Day" and several numbers answer that question and lead us

Till death do us rock

Portland indie band The Harvey Girls aren't girls at all - they're actually married couple Hiram Lucke and Melissa Rodenbeek. While it might not be the most accurate moniker in the world, their name does serve a distinct purpose (beyond the general band-name imperative of "sounding cool"): in its syntactic

Through July 15: "Hausu"

Yeah, we're going to be all snobby and use the film's original name, Hausu, instead of the probably better known but still underground as fuck House, a 1977 Japanese should-be cult class premiering Friday at The Grand. We're those kind of people. Described as a psychedelic ghost tale, a stream-of-consciousness

Sunday, July 11: Art on the Ave

The Sixth Avenue bonanza known as the Art on the Ave festival returns to Tacoma Sunday, bringing all the corn on a stick, face painting and Solar Richard sightings that come with it. Yes, Sixth Avenue traffic will have to find an alternate route Sunday afternoon as the good times

Thursday, July 15: The Meat Sluts

While I'm not against the idea, let it be known that I'm not specifically writing about San Francisco's The Meat Sluts because of the name - which is totally awesome, by the way. No, I'm writing about The Meat Sluts because - not surprisingly - the band fucking rocks. Don't

Thursday, July 15: Head and Heart

The head and the heart - within the human body, they often compete. For example, your heart may pine for the curly haired, nerdy guy at Stadium Video, but your head tells you the truth: he'll never go for you - you like Vin Diesel movies. And so it goes.

Tuesday, July 13: Dreadful Children

Have you ever heard a punk rock version of "Pink Elephants on Parade"? No, you have not. It sounds a lot better coming from those skuzzy amps than you'd think it would. Hearing Dreadful Children play those circus-like chords will be the first time your brain locates and combines the
