Saturday, Oct. 18: Nitty Gritty Tacoma Salvage & Industrial Art Show

We want to learn how to weld, not just for practical purposes; we want to make intricate iron and steel sculptures that will still be around when the rest of us are living on Mars. We might ask the artists at the Nitty Gritty Tacoma Salvage & Industrial Art Show

Friday, Oct. 17: St. Practice Day with Polecate

St. Patrick's Day celebrations aren't easy. You must practice to prepare yourself for the zaniness that goes down every March 17. Doyle's Public House knows this. That's why they host monthly St. Practice Day parties, of which happens again Friday. The party begins with Doyle's Guinness Club toast at 5:17

Thursday, Oct. 16: The Voodoo Organist

You say you want some spooky? The Voodoo Organist, the Los Angeles artist sometimes known as Scott Wexton, channels Screamin' Jay Hawkins, Devo, the Doors and an evil roller-rink to conjure a circus of lounge sounds darkly peppy. The Voodoo Organist has powers, brother - and unless you're willing to

JBLM officer to compete in Miss Washington USA pageant

2nd Lt. Tierra Phillips may wear combat boots during her day job, but this weekend, she's hoping for a crown.

The Melvins: "Hold It In"

I recently volunteered to review the new Melvins record, Hold It In, released, of course, on Mike Patton's Ipecac Recording, Oct. 14. Those close to me probably got a laugh at that sentence. I immediately laughed at myself and the realization that this was about to be the most biased

The vibrant sound of The Van Allen Belt

Music

The vibrant sound of The Van Allen Belt

When was the last time you discovered something new? Not new in the universal sense, like spawning a brand new species in some sparkling white laboratory somewhere, but something new to you? Discoveries are made melancholy; I feel, by the knowledge that they've usually existed around you the entire time,

Music Critics' Picks: Indigenous Robots, Hey Lover, Havania Whaal, DJ Kid One

[PSYCH-ROCK] + FRI, OCT. 17 If I'm obliged to classify Indigenous Robot, an iffy critical approach under the best of circumstances, I'd say it's teetering halfway across a tightrope between Modest Mouse and The Doors. The Colorado quartet leads with Kyle South's patient guitar melodies and exacting percussion from Ryan Longenecker.

Maltoberfest 9: Enter the 40 Ounce

It's October, which can mean only one thing: fans of hip-hop and cartoonish German culture can rejoice. Maltoberfest is back and as Olde English-sodden as ever! For the uninitiated, Maltoberfest is a sublimely beer-soaked celebration of hip-hop and oompah, punk and pretzels and - above all else - more malt liquor

A Double Shot of distaff dialogue

They walk among you, shaded beneath hooded vestments. You may not even know they're there. A hollow-eyed, pallid tribe, they watch from the darkness, listening to your every word. Then, like invisible vampires, they feed on your deepest thoughts and emotions before regurgitating them into the street. Sunlight drains them.

Through Oct. 19: "The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) [Revised]"

If you're a regular theatergoer, chances are you've already seen a production, perhaps one starring Chris Cantrell. That popular Olympia actor directed a new version for Theater Artists Olympia (TAO), an avant-garde company freshly ensconced in its idiosyncratic, full-time venue, the Midnight Sun. The troupe did admirable

Through Oct. 26: "Evan Clayton Horback: Marginals & Mystics"

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

Saturday, Oct. 18-Sunday, Oct. 19: Double Shot Play Fest

The Northwest Playwrights Alliance's Double Shot Play Fest is a chance for local scribes to show off and, just as important, for the organization to make a little spending cash. Consider this: eager writers go to work the evening before the festival, as that's when they're handed the topic for
