Wednesday, Feb. 6: "Shift Change"

Did you know the United Nations declared 2012 to be the International Year of the Cooperative? The UN based its statement on the co-op business model's stunning growth. The UN found that, in 2012, one billion people worldwide were co-op member-owners, or one in five adults over the age of

Tuesday: $3 pints

The best bars are named after ex-wives. Or defunct rock bands. Or candy. Yep, candy. That's why we knew The Red Hot in Tacoma was destined to be a classic. How could a place known for its beer and hot dog selection not bring the noise? Especially

Tuesday: Better living through Alchemy

Not much can be said about 1022 South that hasn't already been said. Everyone has sung the bar's praises. I mean, even a writer from New York called 1022, "home to some of the most fascinating apothecary cocktail work on the West Coast." And I agree. As a drinker's destination, 1022

THE ROCKFORD FILES: Oaklawn

All too often do I encounter snobby, adolescent bands that spend more time gelling hair than playing instruments. It's a common plague: buy a mediocre instrument, take music lessons at Ted Brown, then write some generic self-loathing sounding music and you're golden. Fans and females will come in droves. You'll

Wednesday: Rock and Roll Bingo

Play bingo with those not just killing time before the Grim Reaper calls their number. Every Wednesday at The New Frontier, bingo players are treated to a rather boisterous evening of number-calling. The music rocks, the prizes are craptastic and there's something very satisfying about yelling "It's

The Engine House No. 9 is housed in a firehouse built in 1907 and still retains some of original firefighting artifacts. Purchased by the X Group, the force behind Asado and Masa, there's new excitement with better food, a whiskey bar, more craft beer from

Murray Morgan Bridge reopening is a symbol of Tacoma history

After six long years of closure due to safety issues, the Murray Morgan Bridge will see the dawn of a new era beginning at noon Friday, Feb. 1. The bridge will reopen not only to car traffic, but new pedestrian walkways will allow walkabouts over the Thea Foss Waterway. But to

Super Bowl XLVII: Where to go

Are you ready for some football?! Super Bowl is Sunday, and the Weekly Volcano has to confess to feeling a tad bipolar about the whole thing: glad to see the 49ers in it again, but also bored to distraction at the thought of subjecting ourselves to a four-hour advertising blitz interrupted

Friday, Feb. 1: Simon The Leper, Listener, Poor Folks Living Well

"All three of us are peeing our panties about our show with Listener and Poor Folks Live Well at the Urban Onion," says Jared Bugg, drummer for Simon the Leper. "We've known Poor Folks since the first incarnation of Simon the Leper, but this is the first time we've had

Friday, Feb. 1: Sam Russell

It might be hard for me to judge Sam Russell objectively (like I do with all other music, clearly) because he just hits such a sweet spot for me. His laconic baritone immediately brings to mind the National's Matt Berninger, but the swooning country that surrounds his voice suddenly calls

Saturday, Feb. 2: Wes Sp8

Wes Sp8 (aka Wes Speight, natch) strikes me as a ravenous consumer of pop music. Though he nonchalantly identifies himself as a singer-songwriter, he seems eager to experiment with just what the term means. From song to song, he tests out different personas of the classic singer-songwriter - whether showing

Saturday, Feb. 2: Champagne Sunday

With a rotating cast of contributors and performers over the past seven years, the core of Champagne Sunday is the creative brain of Jessi and Jared Fredeen. Jessi's huge, soulful vocals could star on Broadway, on tour with Garbage or in your church choir. Her voice - which draws comparison
