Garden-to-glass cocktails in Tacoma

April showers bring May flowers, and by June, gardens are flourishing and ripe with the fruits of love and hard labor. And while green thumbs let out a collective sigh at the sight of their lush green plant babies, I've got one thing on the noggin': How will the lovely

Day drinking in Tacoma

Over the past week, without quite intending to do so, I spent perhaps too much time researching this article on day drinking. In short, my results: day drinking is like walking the sloppiest of tightropes, and it takes a deft hand and more than a little bit of intestinal fortitude

Deep Creep avoid classic rock idealism

Music culture has a way of building upon itself, of establishing groups of talented individuals that branch out into new and interesting projects. Just a couple weeks ago, Spencer Kelley of Basemint came out of hiding to debut his new project, Deep Kink, featuring local and ex-local musicians like Ben

For the most part, Canadian indie music that makes its way across the border has come in the form of bombastic choral rock (Arcade Fire) or hook-driven power-pop (Wolf Parade). While I acknowledge that this is an entirely reductive way to look at things, it was still something of a

Saturday, June 7: Chastity Belt

No Regerts, the recent (and hilariously titled) album from Chastity Belt, is a quietly brilliant and important document of feminism and sexual insight, disguised as remarkably surefooted indie rock. With lyrics that vacillate from the winking to the serious - though always trenchantly well-observed - Chastity Belt build solid, simple

Saturday, June 7: Coolio

Saturday, you might want to "slide, slide, slippity slide" to Sixth Avenue as hip-hop luminary Coolio makes the party go sideways. "New booties" will call him a one-hit wonder, which is false and, as Chris Rock would say, "IGNINT." Coolio's hip-hop heritage is rooted in authentic LA hip-hop with the likes of

Visual Edge: Tacoma Artscapes Round 12 behind glass

Ellen Hochberg's installations "Boxes" and "Educating Girls" in the Woolworth windows are identity art. They put out there for your contemplation questions of how girls see themselves and how they are seen by others. As conceptual art they are interesting if not earth shattering; aesthetically they are like well-conceived minimalist
