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

Famous father-son pairs in military history

The current blockbuster movie After Earth pivots around the relationship between a famous general (Will Smith) and his cadet son (Jaden Smith), who winds up deployed under his father's command. Screenwriter Gary Whitta talked to many father and son military pairs and came away humbled by the culture of high

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,

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

Friday, June 14: Baltic Cousins

The music of Baltic Cousins is defined by balls-out folk instrumentation, with Lockhart's voice shouting above the crazed din. It calls to mind easy comparisons like the Pogues, with its melding of traditional instrumentation and sloppy, emotionally resonant melodies and lyrics. There's nothing involving half-measures even close to the work

Urban Spelunker: Town of Steilacoom

Sandwiched between the hustle and bustle of Lakewood and University Place, the town of Steilacoom serves as a little waterfront retreat of sorts. The transition from stop and go traffic on either side, down the winding, wooded road is like a trip through the wardrobe to Narnia. As the greenery
