Friday, March 28: Hell's Belles

Five fetching females will pay homage to that sweatiest, ugliest, manliest rock 'n' roll band of all time Friday night at the Capitol Theater. It's classic cock-rock without the, uh, receding hairline. If you haven't seen the balls-out (in every sense) rock explosion of Seattle's Hell's Belles, do whatever or

Thursday, March 27: Tacoma Historical Society Grand Opening

A woman is locked in her North Tacoma home's attic. At first, she is perturbed, and a bit claustrophobic. Before long, however, she discovers there are many aspects to her attic that she had previously overlooked. She explores old trunks, spilling over with such items as an invitation from the

The most Wes Anderson Wes Anderson movie, which is a good thing

I'm in a conundrum this week. I can't stress how much you need to see Grand Budapest Hotel, but I want you to see it the same way I did; that is, knowing nothing about it except it's directed by Wes Anderson and the story involves a hotel, possibly in

The 7 Best Pacific Northwest Concerts of Spring 2014

With South By Southwest safely in the rearview, the country is officially in full-on concert mode. Bands are continuing their tours out of Austin, making their way up the west coast, and eventually landing in our neck of the woods. Adding to the music overload is the recent announcement that

Psychedelic Purrs

There was a moment in my conversation with Jima, frontman of Seattle band the Purrs, when I expressed how inadequate it is to simply call the Purrs a psychedelic indie rock band. While that might be ultimately accurate, it just doesn't quite do justice to what the band does. Let's

[NOISE METAL] + SAT, MARCH 29 Recently, a band called Skinny Puppy sued the U.S. government for playing their music at Guantanamo Bay. The price? $666,000. The crime was to use Skinny Puppy's music as a form of torture. We've heard many stories of these practices, over the years, of various

Essential Guide to drinking like a Pierce County resident

South Sound residents are a pretty easy breed to spot. Our love of the roasted bean is immense, so much so we can turn an average cup of joe order into a triple-grande-sugar-free-mochachino-extra hot with no foam. We've been known to have a penchant for flannels and beanie caps. But

Tacoma chefs go small at Slider Cook-Off 2014

Through April 6: "Man of La Mancha"

Man of La Mancha finds Miguel de Cervantes in a dungeon with other prisoners, defending his life by narrating the story of Don Quixote, the naïve but faithful Sancho Panza, and the scrappy Aldonza. The treatment of Aldonza/Dulcinea in the musical, as opposed to the novel, is

Sunday, March 30: Nightmare Boyzzz

Huntsville, Alabama, band Nightmare Boyzzz win points for not sounding anything like what their name might suggest. This is a band that is built of brittle sugar, constantly threatened at every turn with crumbling. While the riffs are firmly in the garage rock vein of bands such as the Black
