Saturday, May 24: Gig Harbor Street Scramble

Many involved drinking booze and dressing like strippers and are not meant for kids, but street scrambles decidedly are family friendly. Typically, a street scramble is about navigating and discovering, which is exactly what will happen

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.

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
