Some Like It Hot: Where to warm up in the South Sound

There's a new vocabulary word in town, South Sounders, and it is surely to be on everyone's frozen and chapped lips this winter season: brumous: (broo'mes) adjective, of gray skies and winter days; filled with heavy clouds or fog; relating to winter or cold sunless weather. Sigh. The only thing that's fun about

Tuesday, Jan. 21: The Abigails

The Abigails are fixtures in the Southern California psych-rock garage scene. Thomas has been a member of bands like the Growlers and the Grand Elegance, and fellow Abigail Kyle Mullarky has been in the Starlite Desperation - all bands that occupy a sort of LSD haze. Additionally,

Saturday, Jan. 18: Whelp

Is Whelp really a band? Yes and no. It's not exactly what is the extent of Whelp's existence outside of the Internet and the imagination, but Saturday's show at the Northern would be a good time to find out. What is known about Whelp is that they have created an

Saturday, Jan. 18: The Outlaws: A Waylon Jennings Tribute

Bobble Tiki's hula girl alarm clock woke him up last Thursday with the sound of Waylon Jennings singing "I'm a Ramblin' Man."  No matter how foul Bobble Tiki's mood, that song has always made Bobble Tiki feel good - cocky, strong, self-assured.  When it comes ripping out of a jukebox,

Through Feb. 1: Paitings by Carla Paine

Carla Paine's paintings at Olyphant Art Supply in Olympia are as rich and luscious as the settings for her portraits and still-lifes. They harken back to a time when artists were considered to have been chosen and blessed by God, when they painted their pictures for kings and popes and

It's hard to think of Tacoma as a frontier town. We think of it as Grit City, the City of Destiny, T-town. It's a working-class hub of industry and art, not an outpost. But in the early-to-mid part of the 20th century, Tacoma, multi-cultural and economically booming, was a frontier for

Tournament of Burgers is coming to the South Sound

Transition Assistance Program

The Department of Defense has redesigned the Transition Assistance Program (TAP) in order to ensure that servicemembers are prepared and career-ready when they leave the military. "It's no longer a passive sit and receive, death by PowerPoint sort of training. It's more active and there is accountability," explained Robin Baker, Army

Urban Spelunker: East 72nd and Portland, Tacoma

In the heart of Tacoma's eastside, you'll find the intersection of East 72nd and Portland. With a concentration of apartments and housing developments paired with lots of big box retails (think Kmart) and fast food dining (think Wendy's), this area yields an immense level of car and pedestrian traffic. You'll

Theater Review: "Shout!" is a thing I can do without

I'm this close to giving up on jukebox musicals altogether. For one thing, the people who enjoy them - and those people are legion - do so for reasons that have nothing to do with theater criticism. I like nostalgia, too, which is why I have '80s songs on my

Wednesday, Jan. 29: Science Fair Success

When the science fair notice arrives at the Swarner household, I wish to be deported to a camp 60 miles south of Vegas. These are dangerous times, my friends, especially for those living in Tacoma's Northend neighborhood. My tweener and I don the white lab coats and flirt with the

When you think "book club," is the first image that comes to mind a bunch of middle-aged women with their chairs pulled in a circle sipping white wine and discussing the latest hoity-toity-pabulum-for-the-masses endorsed by Oprah? If you're like me, that holds absolutely zero appeal. Give me something that's fun

Monday, Jan. 27: Slavery in the Northwest

In 1619, there were only a handful of slaves in the United States — 20 Africans landing on the shores as indentured servants, with tenures up to seven years, then freedom. Four decades later, because of Eli Whitney's cotton gin, the U.S. slave population soared. By the mid-1700s, there were
