The Grand Suggests: "Before Midnight"

Film trilogies tend to follow this pattern: the first film draws its audience in and leaves them wanting more when the credits roll. The second film corrects the flaws while retaining and building upon the strengths of the first film, resulting in a sequel that outdoes the original and once

The Rockford Files: Tale of Two Tacoma Festivals

Festivals have always been a staple of the live music industry. It seems every major city and musical epicenter of the country has a crown jewel festival on which they pride themselves. Washington state, of course, has Sasquatch!, the annual outdoor show at the Gorge in George - but admission

Joint Base Lewis-McChord faces hard furlough cuts

Civilian workers at Joint Base Lewis-McChord are about to face the consequences of sequestration. About 10,000 of them will stay home or work elsewhere for 11 Fridays this summer. "It's easy to talk about budget cuts," Col. Chuck Hodges, base commander, said during a news conference early Monday afternoon. "It's another thing to

Thursday, June 20: Art+Sci Salon

Hot air rises. Therefore, if global warming is simply hot air it should rise ... to the top ... of ... public discussion. Which is good. Except the words "hot air" connote something untrue, which means we shouldn't have to discuss it at all. Especially publicly. Except that I'm trying

Taste of Tacoma freshens up

Has the Taste of Tacoma felt a little stale in the last few years? The combination of unhealthy, overpriced options, lack of variety and a noticeable disconnect to the Tacoma food scene has left many locals wanting more. Festivals Inc., organizers of the yearly event which drew a quarter of

Visual Edge: Good humor in the Woolworth Windows

Spring has sprung and it is now possible to enjoy the installations in the Woolworth Windows without standing in the cold and rain. And the current installation is filled with good humor and well-executed artwork. Jennifer Zwick, an artist with attitude, says, "As though life weren't anxious enough, we're expected to

Urban Spelunker: Lincoln District

Lincoln International District in Tacoma is culturally rich. Driving through, it's definitely a little rough around the edges, but it also serves as a hub for those interested in the Vietnamese culture, as most businesses in the area are owned and operated by Vietnamese members of the community. The district

Cyndi Lauper's global domination

In the year 2018, Cyndi Lauper astonished the world by staging a coup and becoming Earth's first Overlord. It started nonchalantly enough, with clandestine visits to Camp David and crossing the International Date Line multiple times in an evening. Nothing a globetrotting rock star wouldn't do, right? But Lauper had

Baltic Cousins hit my musical sweet spot

Over the four years that I've written about music as a sort-of professional, something that's dawned on me and that I've had to come to terms with is that I have a real sweet spot for music that sounds a certain way. This isn't the most desirable attribute, I'd imagine,

Hey, are you in an unsigned band, looking for an awesome way to promote your music by designing your own energy drink can and plastering your band's name on the label? Or maybe you own a pub, bar, club, café or convenience store and want to support local business and music

Through June 23: "The Laramie Project"

On Oct. 6, 1998, two Laramie men, Russell Henderson and Aaron McKinney, offered 21-year-old Matthew Shepard, openly gay, a ride home from a bar called the Fireside Lounge. They drove him outside of town, beat him with fists, pistol-whipped him, tied him to a shake fence and left

Wednesday, June 19: PECK the Town Crier

PECK the Town Crier is a honest-to-goodness mystery, to me. A genre-hopping artist from San Rafael, Calif., PECK tends toward faux-smooth hip hop, when he's not incorporating bits of boogie-woogie Americana or Beach Boys-esque sunny surf rock or '70s AM gold. I think it would be easy to write off

Monday, June 17: Harry and the Potters

Harry and the Potters may well be the nerdiest band in existence: They Might Be Giants-esque power pop that only concerns itself with Harry Potter ephemera. That they've been around for over a decade and released roughly one album a year in that time is a testament not only to
