Monday, March 7: Masters and Johnson

Masters and Johnson are a young band with an adult name (William Masters and Virginia Johnson who were pioneers in the field of sexual research, duh). The handle fits, though, as the duo's songs have the erratic, spastic energy of a desperate spermatozoon navigating the treacherous obstacles of the fertilization

Friday, March 4: Boy and Bean

As much as a non-mainstream, somewhat fledgling all-ages venue in Tacoma can, the Peabody Waldorf is killing it right now - booking show after show of pure awesomeness. And - perhaps more importantly - the venue is providing yet another place for fostering Tacoma's burgeoning arts and indie music scenes;

American Legion walks for veterans

The two-mile walk through DuPont on a drizzly Sunday morning wasn't about exercise. Not for Dale Barnett and the 60 people who walked with him. It was about getting the word out about American Legion and about bringing attention to the needs of our military veterans. "We're walking for our vets," said

Friday, March 4: The Big John Bates Grindshow

There are some bands that have clearly spent a lot of time fantasizing about the live show they would one day unleash on the public. If the members of the Big John Bates Grindshow were younger, it might be permissible to imagine them in school, tracing the word "Grindshow" over

Friday, March 4: DNTSTP!

Friday night at the Midnight Sun in Olympia, the DNTSTP! crew will bring Olympia the best local hip-hop show of the year. You can count on this one to be packed from front to back the entire night thanks to DNTSTP! and some of Olympia's most exciting and popular

Healing with horsemanship

Although many of the terrors of war happen for soldiers overseas, some struggles occur once they return home. Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a harsh and unfortunate reality for many veterans, as it affects up to 20 out of every 100 individuals who are serving or have served overseas, according

Nightlife It List

Friday-Saturday: Skateland dateland

Dingy old rental skates, concession stand hot dogs and the overpowering odor of feet does not a good pickup spot make. Usually. But at Olympia's Skateland, everything's up in the air. With Friday and Saturday evening skate sessions costing $6, you can't afford not to give it a whirl. And

Mondays: Pasta and pints

If you've noticed we're pushing local breweries lately, you've caught us. We can't stay away from local beer. Plus, there's something about a local brewery that screams perfect date night. A couple pints of lager, a couple side salads, a doggy bag for the happy couple. ... Powerhouse Restaurant and

Daily: To-kill-ya

We've all heard the naysayers. Oh, no, I can't drink tequila. Not tequila. I go crazy when I drink tequila. Psshh. Lightweights. What's wrong with a little crazy? The Matador offers over 90 different varieties of tequila. Every day. Muy loco. [The Matador, Open until 2 a.m. daily, 721 Pacific Ave.,

Operation Ham Grenade

Operation Ham Grenade

It rained hundreds of hams. Early last Thursday morning in front of the Western Air Defense Sector at McChord Field, about 25 community volunteers unloaded a large truck chock full of hams. Operation Ham Grenade 2015 had begun. Its mission was to distribute more than 950 hams to various squadron, battalion and brigade

Managed frisk

QUESTION: A recent column of yours really ticked me off. You stated, "While men can have sex without an emotional connection, women generally need to feel emotionally close to their partner first." You could not be more WRONG. I'm a very good-looking and fit man, and I would never have

The 12 deeds of Christmas

I was shocked last year while sipping coffee at Starbucks on a crisp October morning when I realized that Christmas music was playing. Already? Then this year, in August, my daughter and I were school shopping when we found Christmas items already on display. It made Christmas in July seem almost

Small but mighty

Socks, bubble gum and a deck of cards. Cool gifts inside your Christmas stocking or just fillers? That depends on your perspective. But one thing's for sure - a well-stuffed Christmas stocking is a great thing to give, as well as receive. Stuffing stockings is often a balance of budget, practicality

Gifts with meaning

It's never too early to start your holiday shopping. If you love waiting until the last minute because, well, you hate dealing with the crowd, then how about trying a gift that's a little outside the box? We can sometimes end up spending hours debating whether or not we've gotten

We Recommend

Saturday, March 5: The Nightgowns

If we really wanted to, as a town, we could band together and make sure that the Nightgowns would remain Tacoma's "best kept secret." We could shield them from the outside world, ensuring that only we would know the strange power that their synth-pop possesses. We could dote on them
