Guerrilla Girls invade Tacoma

The biting, satirical, outrageous feminist art group Guerrilla Girls will present a live performance sponsored by Tacoma Art Museum and University of Washington Tacoma. The event is called Guerrilla Girls: Not Ready to Make Nice. What they will do is anybody's guess, but rest assured it will be provocative, entertaining

Through Sept. 28: "Coastal Alchemy"

Art is most effective when it can evoke the essence or the spirit, of a person, place or event without necessarily looking like that person, place or event. More often than not it is most effective when it does not look like the subject because illusory depiction

Through May 10: "Chamber Music"

Chamber Music by Arthur Kopit is an absurdist one-act play set in 1939 and performed by Theater Artists Olympia, or TAO. It is TAO's 11th season and their website states, "TAO is a collective of local artists committed to producing high quality theater. TAO's focus is on

Wednesday, May 7: Venkman

I wonder what Bay Area punkers Venkman would think of the impending Ghostbusters 3. Something tells me that they would be none too happy. Named after Bill Murray's iconic, sardonic Peter Venkman character - and populated by members with names like Air Bud and Hot Pants - something tells me

Sundays: "The Best Damn Music Show"

The band was jamming in the studio that's situated to accommodate both musicians and fans. Around 40 people were there, some in suits, some with piercings and tattoos, all with toes tapping or heads banging. Behind a large window, an audio engineer sat in his recording studio, and in front

Sunday, May 4: Reinventing Radio: An Afternoon with Ira Glass

Our story, today, in two acts. Act one: Rev. Adam McKinney is terrified to talk to Ira Glass. Act two: Ira Glass proves to be an utterly professional and delightful person, just like you would imagine if you weren't tasked to interview him. I've had to interview a

Saturday, May 3: Taurus Takeover

The 502 Downtown in Tacoma offers a fresh, night away from the raucous hormonally challenged roughians. The downtown lounge hosts DJs Saturday nights, aimed at a 25 and older crowd - although age is certainly not the only factor with meat-heads who like to ruin a good time. This Saturday, the

Saturday, May 3: Captain Algebra

Captain Algebra is fast becoming one of my favorite heavy bands. They have this certain stoner/doom quality that makes me think of Bacchus or Red Fang. There's also this punk rock vibe that makes me think of my younger years, which seems appropriate given the boys rocking in this band

Saturday, May 3: Mirrorgloss

While their dance-rock may not be the most groundbreaking thing in the 2014 music landscape, Mirrorgloss are utterly unique and entirely welcome to Tacoma's currently hibernating scene. Not only do they bring dance to the indie scene, but - and this must be said - they are led by two
