Music Critics' Picks: Survival Knife, Big Wheel Stunt Show, Seagull Invasion, Joshua Powell and the Great Train Robbery

[HARD ROCK] + FRI, FEB. 28 This week the entire bill rules. I wish I had room to dive into the history these bands have, how deep their ties to the music scene run, how stellar their dynamic is, like the patterns of a mandala, reaching into the organisms of time

Here comes Tacoma Beer Week 2014

Tacoma's first annual Tacoma Beer Week is mere moments away. Earlier this year, some of Tacoma's finest brewmasters joined forces to create a collaborative brew, which, at the time, was simply reported as a black IPA. We now know that this brewski has been given the moniker Tacoma's Neo Noir

Through March 16: "Atmosphere, Land and Water"

Becky Knold's paintings are hard to describe. They're nothing and they're everything. They're abstract, minimalist, colorful but in a subdued way. They're atmospheric color-field paintings with barely discernable forms if any, and no subject matter whatsoever; yet they are clearly landscapes and paintings of buildings. They

Monday, March 3-Thursday, March 6: Joshua Powell and the Great Train Robbery

Look, at this point the Pacific Northwest - not to mention the current pop landscape in general - is choked with folk-rock revivalists. Bands like Mumford & Sons, the Lumineers and even American Idol winners (good lord, Phillip Phillips) have taken to appropriating folk and bluegrass and imbuing with a

Monday, March 3: Seagull Invasion

Seagull Invasion list their music as "funk slip slop slurp," and that's as good a place to start as anywhere. From the rubbery first beats of their song, "Oop," it's clear that Seagull Invasion are approaching everything from a skewed angle. Drum machine clatter is engulfed in elastic guitars and

Saturday, March 1: TBASA

May as well get this out of the way right now: TBASA is not an acronym. Rather, it's a sort of convenient mashup of one guy's name. Tim Basaraba is a restlessly inventive singer-songwriter, beginning his musical life in Idaho as a punk singer, and subtly merging into a genre-hopping

Saturday, March 1: Big Wheel Stunt Show farewell show

"Come out and get some Hugs" stated Big Wheel Stunt Show's Facebook, just above the link to the band's event page, "Last Ride of the Big Wheel. ..." Yup, the beloved trio announced it would disband earlier this month, and they're making good on their promise Saturday. But this is

Know a veteran whose house could use a bit of repair?

"People helping people, that is the whole point," stated Raechel Kilcup, executive director for Rebuilding Together Thurston County (RTTC). RTTC is an affiliate of Rebuilding Together U.S.A., an organization dedicated to helping rehabilitating less-advantaged homeowners' houses.

Step-by-step guide to Tricare Prime for retirees

I met Col. Michelle Nassar soon after her retirement from the Army. When our discussion turned to health insurance, she expressed concern. After 20 years of receiving health care at military treatment facilities with no out-of-pocket expenses, figuring out how to use TRICARE Prime in the civilian marketplace and the idea of paying for it can be

Friday and Saturday: DJ Iceman

There's a new club/party in the T-town. Tacoma's own - by way of Brooklyn, NY - DJ Iceman spins every Friday and Saturday night at the Black Star Pub & Grill. Maybe the busiest and most hungry DJ in the area, Iceman is known and respected for his personality and programming,
