Theater Review: "Little Women"

With 150 years of popularity, it's no wonder that Louisa May Alcott's Little Women was the number one patron pick for plays to be performed during the 2014/2015 season at Lakewood Playhouse. The script highlights most of the major plot points of the novel and takes the audience on a

Town Halls combat Ebola fear

Smart people do smart things. That sentiment was the take-away from Joint Base Lewis-McChord's first Ebola Town Hall meeting at the Evergreen Theater. Three more are planned. "There are plenty of smart people here to answer your questions," said Col. Tony Davit, JBLM's deputy commander. The reason for the town halls stems from

Deconstruction treasures: Earthwise Architectural Salvage

All-Filipino Hall & Oates cover band called the Little Donuts

There are certain bands that have oddly flown under the radar for entire generations of music snobs - bands that you've heard of, sure, but not any band that you'd ever be caught actively listening to. I saw one of those dopey "Did You Know?" factoids on a '70s music

Music Critics' Picks: Octagrape, Teenage Moods, Jeff Bridges & The Abiders

[NOISE-ROCK] + SAT, NOV. 15 Octagrape like to describe their music with cutesy terms like "hazy rabbits foot jams," but what they really deal with is searing noise. The only way I can see a rabbit's foot as a metaphor for Octagrape is to imagine the silky fur as it transitions

You may not recognize the name of retired filmmaker Warren Miller, but chances are high you've seen some of his work. Starting in 1950 with his debut documentary feature, Deep and Light, Miller shot a new nonfiction film about skiing and/or snowboarding every year for 54 years. He captured some

Roadside Tamales in Fife

At times I get a hair up my ass to try a challenging recipe, just to see if I can come anywhere near the picture in the cookbook.  The first time I challenged myself was in the year 2000, inside our little home on Stevens and North Eighth Street.  I

Friday, Nov. 21: Jeff Bridges & the Abiders

Sure, you know actor Jeff Bridges from his performances in The Big Lebowski, Starman, the outstanding 2010 remake of True Grit, and so many other unforgettable films. You may also know he won an Oscar for playing country singer Otis "Bad" Blake in 2009's Crazy Heart. It may have slipped

Thursday, Nov. 20: Fleetwood Mac

It shouldn't be necessary for us to tell you why Fleetwood Mac is one of the greatest bands of the rock era, but we love our young readers so here goes: if the only album Fleetwood Mac ever released was 1977's Rumours, it would still have been plenty.

Monday, Nov. 17: Teenage Moods

Minneapolis band Teenage Moods describe themselves as, interchangeably, "flower punk" and "floral rock." There's a fine difference between those two descriptors, but that little bit of distance is actually a bit of a gulf. The latter self-assigned genre may be the most accurate, as Teenage Moods take a flower-power attitude

Saturday, Nov. 15: Hall & Oates cover band Little Donuts

When I heard that some of Tacoma's best musicians were getting together to form the Northwest's premier (and only?) all-Filipino Hall & Oates tribute band, my question wasn't "why?" All I wanted to know was when and where I could see this magic happen. The new tribute band, known as the

Friday, Nov. 14-Saturday, Nov. 15: Warren Miller's "No Turning Back"

Warren Miller Entertainment's latest film, No Turning Back, was shot and produced by cinematographer Josh Haskins, working closely with ski racer Chris Anthony. It follows a cadre of elite snowboarders and skiers from Montana to Mount Olympus. (Yes, Greece has an actual Mount Olympus. It rises to 9570 feet. Opa!)
