Friday, May 10: Midnight Salvage Co. CD Release Party

Looks like it's the end of the road for Tacoma Rock Band Midnight Salvage Co. Well, sort of. This Friday, May 10, at Jazzbones, the band will be playing their last official show - and releasing their sophomore album, Neon Lights. A year ago, the band holed up at Seattle's

How I became a Mangudai warrior

Editor's Note:  For the second time, J.M. Simpson embedded with Soldiers, Airmen and Coasties for the Mangudai Leadership Challenge. Zero three hundred hours came early May 1. A little more than an hour later, I walked a dusty road to a clearing and joined a group of Soldiers, a couple of

Saluting moms of local rock stars

Sun-kissed hair piled lightly on top of her head, wearing a flowing white blouse and matching white skirt with eyelet detail, Carole Black looks angelic, not the type of woman you might expect to have given birth to a rock 'n' roll party machine. But it's true. Black, called "Rocker Mom"

Laugh it up Mom

Being a mother is rough. From wiping bottoms and runny noses to shelling out the credit card for another school expense, the demands of a mom never stop. We at the Weekly Volcano understand. That's why I suggest a night of comedic relief and live music. Saturday, May 11 the Temple

Sweet prints

My admiration for Lisa Sweet is growing. I was impressed with the pieces she had in the recent "Finish" show at The Evergreen State College and even more impressed with her work in the current show at Childhood's End Gallery - "Printmakers: The Art of the Hand Pulled Print." It

Freaky Sunday

As I groggily blink away the sleep from my eyes this morning, yawning and stretching, I'm hit by the feeling that something is not quite right. My room smells like my mom, Jackie, has been in here again:  faint lavender and chamomile aromas linger. And as I stretch my gangly adolescent limbs, I

Through May 26: "Little Shop of Horrors"

Whether you've seen Little Shop of Horrors or not, it is so much a part of our pop culture that it is difficult not to have some preconceived ideas when you hear the title. Thankfully, Tacoma Little Theatre's production of the musical by Howard Ashman and Alan Menken

Thursday, May 16: Rose Windows

As I've said before, the hunt for nostalgia in contemporary music has been both a blessing and a curse, as bands have found and emulated long-forgotten artists and influences to varying degrees of success. At its worst, this kind of emulation comes across as the pandering output of those who

Saturday, May 11: Mammoth Salmon

Portland's Mammoth Salmon is playing this Saturday in Olympia. Of course, McCoy's will be hosting, as the band's chunky, heavy riffs need the proper ship to anchor down in. There is no doubt in my mind that this show will be as good as the name Mammoth Salmon implies. Imagine

Former Army Spc. Christina Jones swallowed 30 morphine pills and slumped against her bedpost. "Maybe this time, I'll get it right," she whispered, referring to her second suicide attempt in a week.
