Through July 31: Books Arts

When you read The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, does the book provide a secret passageway to Narnia? Flipping through Chitty Chitty Bang Bang does it frustrate you the car can't fly? Pop-up books are endlessly fascinating. Being able to conjure up a three-dimensional world just by pulling a

Saturday, June 8: Steilacoom Historical Home Tour

Older homes are typically loaded with character, and some people love nothing better than to stroll through a neighborhood and check out the architecture. For them, there is the Steilacoom Historical Home Tour. The outing, which is hosted by the Steilacoom Historical Museum Association and hasn't happened in almost 40

Through June 8: Tony n' Tina's Wedding

Maybe you've never been to an Italian wedding, but just say the words: Italian wedding. Getting some good mental imagery yet? At Tony n' Tina's wedding, everything that could go wrong, does, in over-the-top Italian style, that is. Father Mark gets plastered, Uncle Luigi has bladder-control issues and Tony's father

Saturday, June 8: Sweet Water

Every so often, a band comes along that blows you through the flaming hoop of innocence and hangs you out to dry on the tattered trapeze of days gone by. Sweet Water is one such band. In June 2007, the band - under the disguise The Cupcakes - prepared for

2013 Women Veterans Conference

The theme of this year's conference, which will occur Saturday, June 29

Saturday, June 8: Future Bass Dance Party

Yes, we're in love with Future Bass. What's not to love? It's woozily smooth with a little dub, some Dirty South bounce, some mini-backpack drum 'n' bass, sassy house, badass soul, squiggly squeaks, breaky beats, distorted hip-hop samples, wobbling bass lines - like pathological gamblers through paychecks.

Monday, June 10: "Bill W."

It's appropriate Bill W. - a documentary that recalls the life of Alcoholics Anonymous co-founder William G. Wilson - skips the eight gazillion dollars special effects and 3-D action of modern-day films. Wilson's story - one of heartbreak, recovery and heroism - is a serious one, and the never-before-seen photographs,

Saturday, June 8: Aaron Daniel's One Man Banned

The Weekly Volcano has raved about Aaron Daniel before. Daniel and his "One Man Banned" takes a few cues from minimalist composer Steve Reich to create intricate pieces based on cyclical guitar loops. While his loop pedal is a main part of his guitar rig, he also builds intricate jams

Bobble Tiki thinks he's heading through the twisted k-hole of a mid-life crisis. OK, maybe he's exaggerating. Plus, Bobble Tiki doesn't have a driver's license, so he probably won't buy a banana yellow Miata like his friend's dad did back in the '90s. But Bobble Tiki does feel panicked. Maybe it's

"Same Time, Next Year" reconvenes at OLT

Two-handers are tough. A two-hander, in theater parlance, is a full-length show with only two characters. I performed one a while back, Oleanna by David Mamet, and I can tell you it nearly broke my brain. There's nowhere to hide. You're on stage the whole time, and you have to
