Saturday, March 22: Keola Beamer and Moanalani

Tropical breezes, the scent of coconut oil mixed with blooming plumeria wafting under your nostrils, the salty ocean waves gently rolling on shore, inches from your bare feet - ah, Hawaii, how we wish we were there. Since we're not, and the pleasantness of spring in the Pacific Northwest is

Saturday, March 22: Ann Hampton Callaway presents 'The Streisand Songbook"

You may be thinking, "What Did I Have That I Don't Have?" Well, I am here to tell you "I've Been Here," in this situation, and you are missing Barbara Streisand. That's right, "I Can See It" you miss her singing, her voice and her wonderfully, acclaimed lyrics. Well, March

Jack and Diane sucked on chili dogs outside the Tastee-Freeze. Danny and Sandy, they went strollin' and drank lemonade. And you? Was it over something in a cone or on a stick, deep-fried or double-dipped? Were you roadside or seaside, at a stand or a shack, a hut, a cart,

Thursday, March 20: 4th Anniversary Tacoma Art Bus Tour

You've had that Moment. The Moment you know you will look back on six months (or a year, or 10 years) from now and laugh. Laugh and laugh and laugh, just laugh hysterically that you couldn't find PJ Hummel's Warehouse or the Turtledust Media Spaceworks installation, or you got lost

Thursday, March 20: Artist Kathy Thurston and "Somtum"

Normally, you might not consider spending the Third Thursday Art Walk in South Tacoma, but the Asia Pacific Cultural Center has cooked up a special "somtum somtum" for you: A Meet the Artist reception for Kathy Thurston followed by a screening of Somtum (a.k.a. Muay Thai Giant). The former promises

Terror at 20,000 feet

Show And Tell

Terror at 20,000 feet

I review a lot of biopics and documentaries screened at The Grand Cinema. Because these types of films recount stories about real people and events, it's no surprise that - just like in real life - they don't consist entirely of feel-good escapism. Kon-Tiki told the story of Thor Heyerdahl's

Olympia Acoustic Festival has big plans

With Coachella on the horizon and SWSX respectfully behind us, it can only mean one thing - 54 music fest season is officially in swing. The Olympia Acoustic Festival is just one of many in the South Sound, and it's a good one. In its second year, the all-ages, two-stage festival

Babes: Crossing the wires of love and desire

The complicated interplay and opposition of sex and love is a subject that's been explored extensively in pop music - sometimes explicitly, sometimes subconsciously. Jarvis Cocker made a career out of exploring the destructive and redemptive qualities that sex can inject into a relationship. In "She Fucks Me," Ween take

Through March 31: "Current Works"

The current show at Brick House Gallery is an eclectic selection of current work (all done since 2013) by more than 20 artists including many old friends who have shown often at this and other Tacoma galleries. My overall impression was that there are three or four

Thursday, March 27: Babes

Babes is a band that frequently crosses the wires of love and desire. Online, they don't have much of a presence, beyond vague websites and unoccupied Twitter pages. They have a hotline: (470) BABES-77. One gets the impression that you could call any time for intimate connections.

Wednesday, March 26: The Funs

Chicago fuzz merchants the Funs bringing a chugging, lo-fi bravado to your more standard garage rock. Fittingly, given the recent passing of Gary Burger, the Fuzz at times recall the motorik drive of proto-punk weirdos the Monks (whom Burger fronted). Even with the buzzy noise that surrounds the Funs' music,

Saturday, March 22: The Heels

"Whether they admit it or not, everyone's got a bit of a heel fetish." So proposes the bio of Seattle glam-power-poppers the Heels. For a band as preoccupied with aesthetics (sound-wise and clothing-wise), it's easy to see why they'd think that. Further, on their Joan Jett-esque anthem, "Fetish," they name-check
