Through Oct. 31: Heather and Jon Almeda art

Mod Curio is run by the husband-and-wife team of artists Heather and Jon Almeda. Both are artists, and the classy little shop is tastefully filled with their unique art. Since the work is mostly functional and decorative - Heather's photographs being the exception - I would say

A little goes a long way when it comes to psych-rock. This can be a hard lesson for a lot of bands to learn. When the Sex Pistols came around to bring music back to basics, they were reacting to the bloat of bands like Pink Floyd, who had taken

Friday, Oct. 10: The Comic Strippers

While none of the Comic Strippers possess Chris Farley's shirtless je ne sais quoi, it's fair to say they'll never give Magic Mike a run for his sweaty singles. Truth be told, they may not even take off their pants. But once their shirts are off, they'll apply their trained

Vietnam veterans receive a welcome at Joint Base Lewis-McChord

Fifty years is a long time to wait to hear two words: Welcome home. "Those two words mean a lot," Lt. Gen. Stephen Lanza, commander, I Corps, said. "They are not said enough."

Theater Review: Theater Artists Olympia brushes up its Shakespeare

You'd be amazed how hard it is to find genuinely funny play scripts these days. A few decades ago, it seems to have dawned on budding Neil Simons that the real money's in TV, and off they went, never to return. So when, in 1987, three American dudes brought their

Forest Beutel pushes Americana for a livin'

Tacoma musician Forest Beutel is a rough looking dude. He looks kind of like a cross between Lemmy Kilmister and Sabretooth from the X-Men - but way more redneck. Many peoples' first impression of him is that he seems like he can beat the shit out of anyone at whatever

Visual Edge: "Marginals & Mystics" by Evan Clayton Horback

It has been 100 years since Picasso and Braque invented the technique of collage. In more contemporary times the technique has degenerated to either warmed-up Kurt Schwitters or to bizarre and often comical combinations of surrealistic imagery, which tend to be more gimmicky than artistic. Notable exceptions have been the
