Wednesday, Dec. 24: Community Christmas Eve Candle Lighting

For Christians the world over, Christmas Eve means being trapped for endless hours with the family while listening to Hall and Oates sing Christmas carols. But for everyone else, Christmas Eve is a pony of an entirely different hue. People of all faiths and no faith are invited to celebrate Christmas

Ben Roth returns to the Northwest with hazy prog

In some ways, the Tacoma School of the Arts in particular, and Tacoma in general, have a tendency to function as a sort of musical farm league for the country. While this may be a fact shared by other smaller, quirky schools and cities in the U.S., my firsthand experience

[BLUEGRASS] + FRI, DEC. 26 It's a final hoedown of sorts as the year draws to a close. The Rusty Cleavers and The Cottonwood Cutups takeover the Half Pint Pizza Pub the night after Christmas. Sadly, the Riverbottom Gang - a motley crew of rich kids with bad attitudes lead by

South Sound Theater Awards: The Carvies for 2014

As Christmas approaches I get to offer, with considerable delight, my picks for the best of Olympia theater. This was a banner year, with something for everyone and more than enough deserving candidates for each of the five categories. Those exceptional nominees who made a difficult cut have been listed

Happy new food trends

Here we are again. Another year is behind us. The year 2014 has nearly come to a close with 2015 awaiting, and with that enters new resolutions, goals, hopes and aspirations we hope to attain: "Welp, that didn't happen this year; there's always next." As I was ruminating on this,

Tuesday, Dec. 30: Orden Mundial

Orden Mundial do not fuck around. The Spanish hardcore outfit lay everything out on the line in their recent LP, Obedienca Debida, with 10 tracks that almost never make it past a minute and a half. Still, within these unfathomably tight structures, Orden Mundial find compelling melodies and enough crunch

Saturday, Dec. 27: Saucy Yoda

After a couple years of being stranded in the wilderness of Alaska, Saucy Yoda is once again gracing the Pacific Northwest with her presence. For those who haven't had the pleasure of catching her live, Saucy Yoda is a whirling dervish of gonzo party energy. Combining a garage punk aesthetic

Friday, Dec. 26: Bod

Befitting an album featuring Ben Roth's first major creative output, Bod's EP, Party Drug, feels like it's crammed with ideas and off-kilter detours. "Gigantor" kicks off the album in a haze, before '70s prog-indebted guitars charge in. Tricky time signatures abound, lending a stop-start dynamic that challenges without taking away

Through Feb. 8: Mary Lucier's "The Plains of Sweet Regret"

Grab a seat in one of the vintage school desks scattered haphazardly about Tacoma Art Museum's spacious Weyerhaeuser gallery and prepare to be immersed in desolate beauty as Mary Lucier's five-channel video installation "The Plains of Sweet Regret" takes you to another time and place not

JBLM Comcast Neighborhoods

Perhaps you noticed some cameras on Joint Base Lewis-McChord in late November. Perhaps you've heard rumors of a TV show filmed at JBLM. In both cases, you'd be right - cameras were at JBLM Nov. 25 along with a small-yet-intrepid TV crew. What's the occasion? Comcast Neighborhoods is coming to

Ramming rafts on Skykomish River

I have wanted to go whitewater rafting for years. So when my oldest adventure buddy called up and asked if I wanted to join a group of his friends for a trip, I didn't hesitate. I didn't even ask where we were going. The only words out of my mouth

7th Infantry Division prepares for possible overseas deployment

Instability in one part of the world can have dramatic impacts in other parts of the world. Recognizing this, the Department of the Army announced yesterday that the Chief of Army has directed the 7th Infantry Division headquarters, located at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, to add a "deployable capability" while simultaneously maintaining

Wednesday, Jan. 7: What Possessed Mary Shelley?

Give 19-year-old Mary Shelley credit for dreaming up a world-altering idea and single-handedly concocting the genre of science fiction. Frankenstein was regarded as Gothic sensationalism when first published - a lurid tale of a scientist driven mad by his obsession to animate the dead. It has earned the status of
