Art is ... redefined on Tacoma's 6th Avenue

Is there any more vexing wee-hours quandary than "What is art?" According to Teller of Penn & Teller, "Art is anything we do after the chores are done." By that reasoning, most things we do can be art, as long as we enjoy them. (Ideally, someone else enjoys them, too.)

1 Love Lounge to open in Olympia

Jake and Doina Morales are hard at work when I arrive in the heat of the afternoon. Sweat on his brow and a smile on his face, Jake greets me while his wife finalizes paperwork. 1 (One) Love Lounge is in the final stages of opening in downtown Olympia. Located at 422 Legion Way, between Northern

Fox and the Law capture the magic of live performance

I had seen live music before, of course: "Weird Al" Yankovic from the nosebleeds at the Puyallup Fair; suffering through a migraine at a Jethro Tull concert; Paul Revere and the Raiders (I think), once more at the fair. But I had never been blown away by a live performance

Through Aug. 10: "Bathers of the Sun, Bathers of the Moon"

Leonardo Lanzolla's swimmers (La Bagnanti) are making a big splash at B2 Fine Art Gallery in Tacoma's Triangle District. If you saw Lanzolla's paintings in his last show at B2, that was just a warm-up. The paintings in this show are far superior. The lyrical forms, the ways in which he

Thursday, July 18: Mugen Hoso

Mugen Hoso are a two-piece rock band from Japan. They sound like the perfect mix of the Clash and the Ramones. They do not sing in English, and their harmonies are outlandishly good. Needless to say, they are fucking awesome. Good? Fine, I'll say some more. Seen in concert, Mugen

Sunday, July 14: Xtramedium

Pop punk made it to all the way to France, as it turns out. Xtramedium, hailing from the French Riviera, have mastered all of the little emo flourishes and all the punky switches from contemplative riffing to spiteful rave-ups. Thrown into the mix is a healthy dose of lively folk

As we've mentioned many times before, Perry Acker is named like a single dude, but it's actually a band ... a band that's on the rise. Not only did Perry Acker win Ford Motor Company's Gimme The Gig national battle of the bands contest in 2011, then open for Paul

Friday, July 12: Fox and the Law

Describing them musically, Fox and the Law are easy to undersell. Basically, they're just a really good rock band. Genre-wise, they lean in a garage rock direction, but there's little in the way of the typical Nuggets or punk influences that usually characterize modern garage rock acts. As a four-piece,

Outdoor Addict: How to do Vashon Island

One of the very best things about our great corner of the country is the summers. Generally not too hot. Daylight until 9:30 at night. Not too many bugs. My childhood is filled with memories of running around the yard until it was time to crawl in bed. Now, as

Roller derby is alive at Joint Base Lewis-McChord

My roller skating experience was limited to Tacoma's long-defunct Skate King, with its disco balls and strobe lights and my ill-fitting jeans and feathered hair. Yet I longed to be a "real" roller derby girl - one of the cool and feisty chicks that rocked, rolled and ruled the rink. My

Furloughs squeeze JBLM
