Seven things happening in restaurants today

Enough with the praise, it's time for some tough love. Today, I feel like bitching and you're the only one who's paying attention to me right now, so you're going to get an earful. Or an eyeful. Whatever. I could give a shit if they fire me from the Weekly Volcano.

The State of Metal in the Puget Sound

OK, word association: What are the first images and sounds that come to your mind when you hear the word "metal" in reference, of course, to music. Give yourself a little time.  OK, now let's do it again with the term "Puget Sound metal."  I'd be willing to bet dollars

Radio8Ball filmed live before Olympia audiences

The concept: Ask a question and have it answered by a randomly chosen song, like a musical tarot card. Andras Jones created Radio8Ball in 1998 on KAOS in Olympia. Now, he is producing it as a local TV series (for the web, for now) with Olympia Film Collective. The episodes are

The indie rock Merseybeat of the Gregarious Oranges

In The Last Waltz, the Band describes how they landed on their nondescript name. After trying out on-the-nose names such as the Honkies, and being in the middle of a typhoon of bands named things like Strawberry Alarm Clock, the Electric Prunes, and the Chocolate Watchband, Robbie Robertson and company

Tuesday, Aug. 12: Gregarious Oranges

The Gregarious Oranges may have a name that calls to mind the psychedelia of the late '60s, but their sound recalls a period in music that came almost a decade earlier. Drawing from the Merseybeat sound of the early '60s - which included early Beatles, Gerry & the Pacemakers and

Saturday, Aug. 9: Russ Vitale

It is always a treat to be part of a movement - to catch an artist during their incline rather than having to vomit your way through a decline (see: Ja Rule, that was a hard one to sit through). Saturday, you may see a young, up-and-coming rapper before he

We Recommend

Saturday, Aug. 9: That Coyote

That Coyote describe themselves as hard rock, and while that's intermittently true, they devote a substantial amount of their time to exploring different moods and textures. Two songs off of their most recent LP add up to almost half an hour, which would fall in line with the format of

Saturday, Aug. 9: 10 Cents in Oklahoma

Bruising lyrics about weird moons and whiskey friends and love and hate in places like Montesano and Oklahoma, the female vocals are a little Mazzy Star meets old country, with that wavering sexiness that sounds like power. Instrumentally, a little shake, shake, shake, some twang, lots of good melodies and

Friday, Aug. 8: Coven

Coven. What does that word do for you? Does it evoke images of darkness, figures shrouded by mystery and ritual? What does it smell like? Dank, dark and bloody? What does it sound like? In this case, Coven, the thrash metal band that dominated the late '80s and early '90s

Tobacco and the military

The military's long-time 25 percent discount on tobacco products might be going up in smoke. The Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Defense chaired by Sen. Dick Durbin has recommended that the discount for cigarettes, chewing tobacco and other tobacco products be eliminated because of health reasons. About one quarter of those in the

Urban Spelunker: Frozen treats in the South Sound

As an Urban Spelunker, I am often left scouring the South Sound in extreme conditions. Most recently, these extreme circumstances included the longest bout of over 80-degree heat we've seen in my lifetime. It was not a pretty sight. I was journeying through districts unknown, wiping sweat from my brow

World's largest squirt gun fight

It's been a hot summer but guess what? There's a way to cool off and do some good coming up this month when locally based charity 4US urges everyone to pick up a water gun and shoot. 4US is a charity that raises money to purchase ultrasound machines for medical centers

JBLM officer Giovanna Camacho selected for All-Army Boxing Trial Camp

Pound for pound, 2nd Lt. Giovanna Camacho, a female boxer stationed with the 2-3 Infantry Patriots, 3rd Stryker Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, is not just intelligent but also a petite, pocket, powerhouse in the ring. So much fury packed into her 106 pounds is difficult to

Military spouse resumé toolkit

Military spouses being unable to find employment or maintain a career are not considered breaking news headlines anymore. The constant moves, prolonged separation among families and generally unpredictable military lifestyle has led to this issue and spouses are trying to find the answer. Yet what military spouses are doing is volunteering

62nd Airlift Wing and 42nd MP Brigade joint train for rapid deployment from JBLM

Backing a fully loaded military truck and trailer up a ramp and into the hold of an air force transport aircraft is much like pushing a rope uphill. Add the contrast of a glairing, cloudless day against a dark cavernous pit and even the most experienced driver would start to

Jackson Pollock's legacy at B2 Fine Art Gallery

There's a show at B2 Fine Art Gallery called "Evolution of Line & Form: Exploring Jackson Pollock Inspirations." Six painters and one photographer are featured, including former Tacomans David Noah Giles and Catherine Swanson whose abstract paintings lift the show to a higher plateau.
