Saturday, June 21-Sunday, June 22: Capital City Pride

Capital City Pride began under the aegis of Rainbow Center Olympia. Back then, the festival drew a few hundred people. Now as many as 10,000 celebrants converge on a two-day extravaganza that marks the climax of a very busy year for the organization. After a "Pride Power-up & Dance Party"

Friday, June 20: An Evening of Cinematic Music

Music has been a part of the cinema since almost the beginning of film history. From the simple piano accompaniment of silent films to Max Steiner's swelling scores (such as that for Gone With The Wind) to "... and Iiiiiiiiii-yi-iiiiiiiiiii will always love youuuuuuuu-uh-hoo-uh-hooooo ..." from The Bodyguard, they've become

Thursday, June 19: Tacoma Post Office Building Art Walk

Theater Review: Liking Spamalot a lot

Lakewood Playhouse never seems to disappoint and their most recent production is no exception. People who don't like Monty Python humor, also known as fuddy duddies, might want to skip it but for everyone else, Spamalot (books and lyrics by Eric Idle) will have them laughing, whistling and singing even

Joining Joint Base Lewis-McChord

Joint Base Lewis-McChord is on the verge of taking joint-basing to a whole new level. A recent release from JBLM confirmed that a long-term construction project for a new road and overpass that will cross over Perimeter Road, which bisects JBLM Main and McChord Field, has begun. The project will link

"Lucky Them" hunts for a musical urban legend

Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, Tupac Shakur and many, many more. They all helped redefine music as we know it, couldn't endure the shackles of fame and faked their own deaths in order to live out the rest of their lives in peaceful anonymity. Wait, I misspoke. They're dead. Deader than disco

Healthful butter suggestions from Your Kitchen Beautician

The classic 1980s television commercials for the I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! margarine product featured characters literally falling head over heels in love with its taste. I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! was deemed just as tasty as real butter in the ad, but without all the fat and

Maurice The Fish Records showcases talent at FISH Food Benefit Concert

It's like money in dog years. For FISH Food Banks of Pierce County, every dollar raised has seven times the buying power. Based on this math, last year's Maurice The Fish Records' (MTFR) benefit concert brought in nearly $50,000 to help feed the hungry. Taking place this Sunday, June 22, eight

Egg Plant comes back to Tacoma

Luke Short, the mind behind Egg Plant, is too laid back of a person to really make much of a thing about his Tacoma homecoming. It's been four years since I've written about Egg Plant, as the band had made its home in Portland shortly before then. While Short had

10 things to do in Tacoma

Oh, Tacoma. You are so weird and so wonderful. I've been here a long time, old friend, and I so get you, you little charmer, you! Why the sweet emotion, T-town? Well, you've made it kiddo. People like you from near and far. We long-timers knew the day would come when

Through June 22: "The Cemetery Club"

There are line flubs, sure. I've heard less covering in Beatlemania. The uncertainty lengthens an already-too-long show to 2:30 plus intermission. Still, it's a tribute to OLT's veteran leads that I almost never knew who went up. The actors remain locked into each other, ad-libbing credibly

Theater, no matter how hard we try, is nothing like life. It's amplified, focused, condensed and artificial. That's not to say we who craft it are unobliged to say anything about real life, but we needn't feel we must reproduce it photographically as if there were no
