Through July 26: "A Rock 'N' Roll Twelfth Night"

If you're new to the show as well, be advised it quotes plenty of Elizabethan language from Shakespeare's original text, then seasons it with a drizzle of "baby"s and "man"s. It jars the first time that gives way to pop, rock or, in one early number, reggae,

Sunday, June 29: Olympia Experimental Music Festival

Though music scenes have shifted and grown, in the Pacific Northwest, Olympia has maintained its status as a hub of musical experimentation. It should come as no surprise that they hold the premier South Sound festival for exploring the farther reaches of musical expression.

Saturday, June 28: Mosquito Hawk

To see Mosquito Hawk in person is to see the workings of four dedicated rockers, each bringing a stage presence that engages more than just your ears. Watch as Jerry Zeigler pile-drives his drums, float off with John Merithew as he noodles a guitar solo into your being, catch the

Saturday, June 28: Wei Zhongle

I wonder if the people in Wei Zhongle know how to pronounce their band name, or if it's just a guessing game every time. Listening to their music, it certainly seems like they'd be cagy if you asked. Describing their music as "nu trance" -which, frankly, I do not approve

Saturday, June 28: Music and Art in Wright Park Fundraiser

The sprawling park, with its green grassy hills, where families picnic in the shade, or groups of friends share a smoke, where dogs sniff the air in anticipation, and where a rock band tunes up on stage. This is Music and Art in Wright Park, MAWP, Tacoma's annual summer event -

Saturday, June 28: Fruit Juice

As such, I tend to find myself more involved with bands that skate through '60s influences on their way to pop serenity. When I'm not filling my head with big-sounding post-punk nonsense, I generally find time for bands like Foxygen, which strangle-holds '60s pastiche in a way that's both reverent

Friday, June 27: Gladiators Eat Fire

Sometimes, with this arms race of who can nail the heaviest stoner rock to the wall, things can get muddy in a way that interferes with the visceral thrill promised by these tectonic riffs. Gladiators Eat Fire bring it with the massive sound, but they have smarts enough to parcel

Social media vs. PCSing

The line between the real world and the virtual world continues to grow thinner and while adults can usually walk that tightrope, children are at risk from the dangers of the Internet that lurk below.

Helmut Jung gives an insightful and revealing perspective of what it was like fighting in WWII in his book, But Not For The Fuehrer. However, Jung, who was born in 1926 in Hessen, Germany, tells his story from a different perspective. He fought for the Nazis, fighting primarily in the 7th

Ed. note: As a boy Richard Baker discovered an old military footlocker in his grandfather's attic.

Wednesday, July 9: A History of Pacific Northwest Cuisine

The Question: is there still such a thing as Northwest regional cooking? Is dinner at a Tacoma bistro any different from a meal you'd eat in New York, Chicago, or Atlanta? As we've imported the world, have we lost our regional identity? A few weeks ago, an out-of-town friend asked
