Tacoma's B&I Public Market Place frozen in time

There's something otherworldly about Gary Lappier's photography show, "Sent From Somewhere Else," at Fulcrum Gallery. That does not mean the pictures are of fantasy scenes or that they're surrealistic or dreamily atmospheric. They are simple, straightforward, black and white shots of the B&I Market on South Tacoma Way. What is

Wednesday, April 9: Joanne Rand

If you could ever wrap the matronly goodness of a mother's kiss, her love a tune of strength, her stories a place for the imagination to leap through the portal of everyday living and into the soundscape of music, riding the waves of Appalachian acoustics and vibrating on the end

Tuesday, April 8: Battlefield Band

Monday, April 7: Poem Making Workshop

Writing good poetry isn't something that comes naturally to everyone. It's hard to find that "inner voice" without sounding cliché.

Sunday, April 6: The Flett Family in the Pacific Northwest

The Weekly Volcano staff crosses Flett Creek during daily trips for Mocha Cookie Crumble Frappuccinos.

Saturday, April 5: Gray Sky Blues Music Festival

Ahhh, the Daffodil Parade! As surely as pint-sized marching bands will file down the street in lockstep while serenading onlookers with "Tequila," the sky will fill with dark clouds before an inevitable downpour drenches everyone within a two-mile radius of downtown Tacoma - (Don't tell me it won't happen.
