Saturday, Jan. 25: DJ Donald Glaude

In the early ‘80s, Donald Glaude filled our high-school house parties with Funkadelic, Commodores and underground hip-hop. We (meaning dorky dudes) would mount the REAL quarters table while the women flocked around Glaude. His musical knowledge, good looks and outgoing personality made him king of Lakes High School. From there,

Through Feb. 9: "To Kill A Mockingbird"

Those of you who actually read your high school literature assignments should remember that Atticus Finch is the dignified Southern lawyer who defends a black man wrongly accused of rape in Harper Lee's Pulitzer prize-winning 1969 novel, To Kill a Mockingbird. Set in 1935 Alabama, three children face the life

Pierce College student gives socks to homeless veterans

The man pushing the shopping cart through the Lakewood Town Center late one evening last week appeared to be homeless. When asked, he acknowledged that he had nowhere to go and that he was "a vet."

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

Music Critics' Picks: Hungry Ghost, Hip-Hop 4 The Homeless, Michelle From the Club, Tin Man

[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,

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

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
