Saturday, March 16: Drum 'n' Bass Night

Drum 'n' bass currently enjoys not nearly as much of the fawning media attention lavished on it in the mid-'90s, when magazines anointed Roni Size and Goldie the kings of rapid-fire jungle. It's been a while since Bobble Tiki heard the treadmill churn of jackknifing beats and bass riffs. Good news.

The Olympia All-Ages Project's mission statement says it all: "The purpose of the Olympia All Ages Project is to develop, foster and promote music and art as experiences central to the lives of the young citizens of Olympia." The non-profit organization carries out its mission at its permanent home, Northern.

Jack Kerouac is turning in his grave. The days of taking a drug-choked jalopy down the low road to old Mexico are long over. If Kerouac were alive today, he's want comfort and economy. With enough ill-gotten bread, he could buy himself a fancy pop-up travel trailer

Thursday, March 21: ART BUS with Vern Fonk dude

Walking from gallery to gallery, up to Hilltop, down to Pacific Avenue, across town to Sixth Avenue, over to the Dome District is damn tough. Thankfully, for the last three years Tacoma has had the ART BUS to rely on - the creation of T-town's own Angela Jossy, and pretty

A Soldier and a baker

"Can we hire him?" That question was asked about 10 months ago after Matthew Kiepert entered Sweet Melissa's bakery to buy a cupcake.  "One of our employees talked with him and was impressed with his knowledge of baking," explained Amber Arrant, the store's manager. "When she asked if we could hire him,

Interview: Brendan Canty of Deathfix

Deathfix is a supergroup. Although people haven't been batting around that term with Deathfix, it is wildly appropriate. The group consists of Brendan Canty (Fugazi), Rich Morel (producer of everything from Depeche Mode to the Killers), Devin Ocampos (Faraquet, Medications) and Mark Cisneros (Medications, Chain & The Gang). Despite the

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

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

If you've seen AKA and The Heart Hurt Goods perform, you've seen how much the band loves its art. You can see it in the band member's fist pumps and facial expressions; in their hip shakes and smiles and in the way they administer their music, be it through a

Saturday, March 16: The Saturday Giant

There's a spot in my musical life that has been left dormant since the days of Bright Eyes and Death Cab For Cutie - these sensitive indie bands that constructed perfectly poppy songs that somehow managed to sum up how I felt as a lost, confused young man. I didn't
