Friday, May 23: "A Life In The Theatre"

Behind-the-scenes power dynamics of plays and movies are often more theatrical and intriguing than anything that happens in front of a paying audience.  We've had, quintessentially, All About Eve, as well as dozens of movie musicals and - perhaps best of

Visual Edge: Erin Dengerink's "The Hole in Your Heart"

Erin Dengerink's installation "The Hole in Your Heart is a Portal to Another Dimension" is a mixed media installation of small, whimsical arrangements comprising a surreal landscape that delivers a message of hope to the heartbroken. That's what the description on the Artscapes website says. To me it is a delightful

Whether you have kids, house guests or nostalgia, now is the perfect time to gather up the gang and head for the exhibit, "Route 66: Dream of the Mother Road," at LeMay - America's Car Museum (ACM) in Tacoma. For almost 60 years, America got its kicks on Route 66,

Where to honor Memorial Day in the South Sound

There are many places around the South Sound to honor those that have given the ultimate sacrifice this Memorial Day, both on Joint Base Lewis-McChord and in the cities and towns surrounding the base. For instance, the Pointe du Hoc Foundation, a nonprofit devoted to the soldier and families of the

"The Immigrant" takes a bite of the (rotten) Big Apple

You're going to leave your homeland. A hostile nation invaded. There's a potato famine. Your government's corrupt. An insane dictator runs the show. Whatever your reasons, you're in luck. Far across the sea, there's a fabled land of freedom and opportunity called America. The whole world's tired, poor and huddled

Kevin Seconds remains hardcore with an acoustic guitar

Kevin Seconds has never been a slave to expectations, even as his immensely influential band, 7 Seconds, helped to foster the West Coast hardcore scene in the early '80s. Never one to rest on his laurels, Kevin Seconds led his band beyond the confines of straight-edge hardcore and into more

Popular '80s band Strypes reunites in Tacoma

Here's how I first knew the Strypes reunion show was an important piece to write about: Ron Swarner, our fine, fedora-wearing publisher/editor at Weekly Volcano, sent me an email pitching me the story. "Please, please, please!" he pleaded. It is not often the man begs. Here's how I next knew the

Aviateur Review: French food worthy of a glorious space

Though Tacoma is brimming with a diverse selection of dining options, some international fare is seemingly void from the culinary scene. One such country whose culinary reputation boasts some of the most well known chefs and sought after flavors may still be underrepresented but not missing all together thanks to

Through June 8" "La Cage aux Folles"

I mean no disparagement whatsoever when I say La Cage aux Folles is a musical populated mostly by drag queens. Its two leads are a gay male couple, Georges and Albin. They run a drag cabaret in Saint-Tropez, France, circa 1983. That was the year Allan Carr, producer

Wednesday, May 28: The Telephone Projects

The Telephone Projects is a one-man band that seems to revel in cracks and flaws. Made up of one Brennon Gage, of San Diego, the project seems to mostly revolve around Gage and his Casiotone, churning out vaguely miserablist indie pop with a tongue-in-cheek attitude of carefree defiance. Gage proudly

Sunday, May 25: Rhythm of Cruelty

A cracking drum machine provides the aggressive backbone of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, post-punkers Rhythm of Cruelty. That relentless beat is what propels these nervy tunes, accompanied by the reverb-engulfed vocals of bassist Brandi Strauss and the sharp guitar attack of Ian Rowley. Things are decidedly moody for Rhythm of Cruelty,

Saturday, May 24: Strypes reunion

Beginning in 1981, front man Regan Lane, along with keyboardist Robert Richholt, guitarist Jesse Seales and bassist Bob D'Angelo (now of Mechanism) brought a certain power-pop, boy-band charm (complete with '80s hair) and danceable, relatable stories and music to their hometown of Tacoma, and then to the world.

Saturday, May 24: Wheelies

Doug "The Wheelie King" Domokos once accomplished a 145-mile wheelie. Can you imagine the rush? The disbelief? Wheelies, first performed in 1890, are one of the most classic bike moves ever. It's a kid's first sense of control - besides the transition from training wheels to the two-wheeler - and
