Sunday, Sept. 8: Benefit for Jho Blenis

The best and worst thing about the Tacoma music scene is how tight-knit it can be. This quality can manifest itself as stubborn resistance to expanding the sonic palette of our town, but it can also result in inspiring gestures of care and support for one another. Tacoma takes care
