Sunday, July 13: Forbidden 12th Night

For some of us, karaoke is all about either watching or being drink-sodden disasters - specifically the kind poorly belting out ballads to a hooting crowd of strangers. For the non-voyeurs and the non-exhibitionists, the song's the thing, and Harlequin Productions "Forbidden 12th Night" karaoke party should be a song-centric

Saturday, July 12: Mini U.S. Open Put Putt Tournament

If you don't have kids of your own, playing miniature golf is not much more than a nostalgia trip. Fond memories of a round with Mom and Dad and going out for ice cream afterward provides its appeal, not the challenge of putting the ball in the holes. The Harmon

Friday, July 11: Wolves in the Throne Room

Like a crow that is dark, intelligent and resourceful - schooling its children in the ways of life, so do Wolves in the Throne Room school their listeners in the ways of earthy black metal. Sometimes ambient, sometimes thunderous, always with radical environmentalism in mind, Wolves will remind you of

Thursday, July 10: Stinkin' Good Summer Reds

Since really wonderful summertime food comes off the grill, the idea that chilled white wine is a good general summer drink becomes nonsensical. More often, room-temperature red wine should be the libation of choice. The marriage of a delicately gamey grilled leg of lamb with a complex yet fruity Pinot

Tacoma Art on the Ave 2014

Has it really been a year since we previewed Art on the Ave for last July? Wait, we're counting on our fingers and toes ... yep, the math checks out. Our love for this summer celebration of all things expressive is a matter of record, so don't think we're throwing

"Begin Again" isn't "Once" again

In 2007, writer-director John Carney gave audiences the Academy award-winning film Once. Although Carney's latest film shares some themes with its predecessor, it's dissimilar enough that I can't bring myself to make a snarky quip that it should've been called Twice. Begin Again centers on Greta (Keira Knightley) and her longtime

Music Critics' Picks: Dudley Taft, Masta Ace, Sarchasm, Charts

[BLUES] + FRI, JULY 11 Dudley Taft may well be the best white, Cincinnati-based blues artist you've never heard of, despite the fact that he toured with Seattle's own Alice in Chains and Candlebox. But wait, you say, Alice in Chains and Candlebox aren't blues bands. You're right! Now wipe that

The blue collar poetry of the Riffbrokers

I'm well aware that this is likely the 1,000th time I've quoted this, but it's something that has stuck with me for years. It comes on the bonus features of the DVD of the Talking Heads concert film, Stop Making Sense, and it's a segment in which David Byrne interviews

Tacoma Pride: A week of celebrating in the streets

It wasn't too long into my tenure of hanging out in downtown Tacoma - after years of fearing it from my home in the North End - before I visited my first gay bar. I was doing an essay for my English class at TCC, where we were charged with
