Survival Knife: "Traces of Me" / "Name That Tune"

Releasing a single is tricky business. The very idea that one song as a statement should be placed in a hierarchy above another is a dicey gamble. Rock history is filled with stories of DJs flipping the single to discover an even better cut. From "Chantilly Lace" to "Groove is

Thursday, March 21: Tacoma Art Mingle

So there you are in your studio, stuck in a hopeless mire of artistic schizophrenia. Traditional painting is more respectable. Computer-generated art is edgier. Ceramics break, but have a certain charm. Woodcarving? Watercolor? Your studio is empty; your head is scattered. You need ideas. You need to hit Thursday's Tacoma Art Mingle.

Friday, March 22: Tommy Castro & The Painkillers

Tommy Castro is Delbert McClinton's more talented kid brother. I had been waiting for this San Francisco rockin' blues guitarist to put another one in the ditches. Finally, this past November the blistering "Greedy" / "That's All I Got" (Alligator Records) arrived. Nobody plays roadhouse like this anymore: the rock

Tacoma Little Theatre adapts "Joy Luck Club" for the stage

Families are complicated. Many times we are closest to those we choose to share our burdens rather than the people biology have given us for family. The bonds between parent and child are influenced by so much more than the desire to be close. The Joy Luck Club at Tacoma

"Philadelphia Story," well told at Harlequin Productions

To avoid burying the lead, let me say right up front that Harlequin Productions does an unimpeachable job of producing Phillip Barry's 1939 The Philadelphia Story. Billed as a romantic comedy, it's programmed as an obvious enticement to older patrons. That makes my review an unusually difficult one to write. Imagine

Join the Navy League

The Navy League of the United States of America is a civilian non-profit organization chartered by the U.S. Congress.

"Oliver!" sets the standard at Capital Playhouse

It seems to me that 1960's Oliver!, adapted and composed by Lionel Bart, set the very model for a modern Broadway musical. It has all the elements we associate with the form. Its protagonist is a scrappy orphan (cf. Annie, Gavroche in Les Misérables) who uses his first solo number
