From Candlelight to Dance and Drinks: What the Warehouse has planned for Tacoma

It's no secret, I suppose, that Tacoma is a city that frequently needs as much help as it can get when it comes to creating and perpetuating the arts. This is not a town lacking in talent, to be sure, but that doesn't always translate to productivity and support. In

This meets that meets the Mantles

There's a bad habit in music journalism that - lazy and ineffective though it may be - sometimes remains unavoidable. In fact, there are several other examples of it, from me, in this very issue of the Weekly Volcano. I'm talking about relying too heavily on calling out perceived influences

[ROCK] + SAT, JAN. 25 With its heavy blues riff and falsetto refrain, the opening moments of "Shame" instantly call to mind Led Zeppelin. Hints of Zeppelin are peppered throughout Hungry Ghost's eponymous LP, but the influences are more varied and far-flung than your typical Zeppelin-indebted bands. A supergroup of sorts,

BATTLE OF THE BRIDGE There will be a Battle at the Bridge at 7 p.m. Friday, Jan. 24. It's not a bottle rocket war waged between the two Narrows Bridge spans, but rather a blind tasting sipping showdown between Narrows Brewing vs. Scuttlebutt Brewing at Narrows brewing (9007 S. 19th St.,

Drink beer at Hands On Children's Museum

The Hands On Children's Museum has something new on tap Friday: beer. No, really. The museum is launching Adult Swim, a quarterly adults-only night, with a beer-tasting event. "The first thing people say to us is ‘Beer at a children's museum?' " said museum spokeswoman Genevieve Chan. "That kind of a contrast is

Where to find a Hot Toddy in Tacoma and Olympia

Ah, winter in the South Sound, when the wet and cold finally get to us, cutting through layers of rain gear and wool socks to spore viruses and respiratory infections into the lungs and sinuses of even the hardiest of souls. So on an especially congested night, when your chest is

Fine Art Postcard show returns to South Puget Sound Community College

Once again the gallery at South Puget Sound Community College is filled with well over 200 artists' postcards. This year the theme is "It's the Water," the old Olympia Beer slogan. About a third of the show is made up of trite photos, watercolors, and other images of water, with quite

Lakewood and 4-2 Stryker Brigade Combat Team part ways

Joint Base Lewis-McChord's Community Connections program is more than words on a piece of paper or a perfunctory handshake between community and military leaders. The program's intent, which stems from the efforts of Gen. James Hill when he commanded Fort Lewis in 2000, goes beyond the obvious and delves into the

Saturday, Feb. 1: A Candle Lit Show

What began as a collective of people working to make a sustainable venue out of the old brick-and-mortar warehouse down on Court C has transformed into a production company that specializes in bringing unique shows to unusual places. In this regard, the Warehouse has been an unequivocal success. Helmed by

Thursday, Jan. 30: The Mantles

The Mantles hail from San Francisco, where legions of bands are embracing the '60s sound, though largely in the context of fuzzy garage rock, this sort of Nuggets influence that seems to color all Bay Area bands. Meanwhile, the Mantles tend to incorporate brightly ringing guitars with delicately hazy melodies.

Saturday, Jan. 25: Michelle from the Club

Michelle from the Club recently found themselves opening up for Surfer Blood at a show at Pacific Lutheran University. That's a pretty potent feather in the cap for a band that values the power of steadfast guitar riffs as much as Michelle from the Club clearly does. While the anthemic

Saturday, Jan. 25: Tin Man CD Release Party

Most of the time, my music picks are of my own accord, bands I've loved for years, or maybe a hot new number a friend has turned me onto, or I found while bar hopping. This time, my pick comes from the boss, Pappi Swarner, who has a great ear

Saturday, Jan. 25: Hip-Hop 4 The Homeless

Growing up on North Fort Lewis

It was the stuff of a childhood adventure and coming of age in a bygone era - well before the Internet, cell phones and video games. Nature was a young boy's wonderland: sticks became swashbuckling swords, climbing trees were sport and campouts under the stars were routine. It was a

Urban Spelunker: Roy Y

Bordering the east side of Joint Base Lewis-McChord is the "Roy Y." This area refers to where State Routes 7 and 507 intersect, making a Y shape. This intersection, deep in Spanaway, takes you down a scenic drive to the town of Roy and continues through Spanaway toward Mount Rainier.

Theater Review: "Search's" Weagant makes a spectacle of herself

Trudy hears voices. She's what folks used to call a "bag lady," back before the descriptor "homeless" gained traction, and we meet her at the corner of Walk and Don't Walk in New York City. She ascribes these voices to signals from "space chums," amorphous aliens who collect human experiences

Theater Review: Tacoma Little Theatre revisits an American treasure

Few lines of dialogue are surer to bring me to tears than "Miss Jean Louise, stand up. Your father's passing." I'm moved by tales of goodness; if ever there was a novel that pondered the differences between legal, right and good, it's Harper Lee's immortal To Kill a Mockingbird. You've
