Monday, Jan. 19: Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

The memory of Martin Luther King, Jr. always receives plenty of folksy acknowledgment on this day set aside in his name, but the best events tend to target togetherness. Here are a few: Unity Breakfast: The 9th Annual MLK Unity Breakfast recognizes and celebrates the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King,

Sunday, Jan. 18: South Sound Wedding Show

A large percentage of people get married at some point during their lives. Some people, like Larry King for instance, do it several times. The fact is, weddings are a big part of our existence. All the more reason to check out the seventh annual South Sound Wedding Show at

Saturday, Jan. 17: Peking Acrobats

Regional bragging rights. Office betting pools. Weekend afternoon boredom. These are all worthwhile reasons to be a sports fan. But for the Weekly Volcano's money, the best defense of sports' spectators has to be the vicarious thrill that we get from seeing athletes do all the cool stuff we can't

Saturday, Jan. 17: Noodlebird

There are moments that come to people in the artistic world when transition is imminent. This moment seems to have arrived for Scott Anderson and Noodlebird. After getting started in 2012 making music under the Noodlebird moniker, bandmates came in and out, with a permanent lineup

Friday, Jan. 16: Nearly Dan

Here I was, all prepared to write up The Good Lovelies, when lo, it turns out our Agenda calendar editor already did the job. (I'm telling you - I do not say this lightly - their cover of "The Chipmunk Song" is a keeper. I know!) Luckily, there's an equally

Friday, Jan. 16: The Good Lovelies

We Recommend

Friday, Jan. 16: The Good Lovelies

Harmony-drenched country-folk trio The Good Lovelies are Toronto's finest export since Sarah Harmer. This all-female group is indeed good and lovely, having nailed a formula of old-fashioned dresses, buoyant ditties, spot-on three-part harmonies and onstage repartee. What started off as a one-off singing Christmas music in 2006 has turned into

Friday, Jan. 16: Alexander Anderson Trio

Alexander Anderson, a student of the Berklee College of Music, leads a trio of jazz fusion madness. Blending some of the spacy free form wildness of Sun Ra with the down-and-dirty textures of Miles Davis, the Alexander Anderson Trio take an egg beater to expectations, creating deceptively complex songs that

Through Feb. 1: "Glengarry Glen Ross"

Lakewood's Glengarry grabs the reins of its exposition and takes off at a run as a police detective (Dave Hall) arrives to investigate an overnight robbery. Local actors could learn a lot by watching the arcs of these characters in Act II. Brother, talk about fuckin'

Thursday, Jan. 15: Combinator

They do have the funk. Seattle's Combinator are old-school Red Hot Chili Peppers in training socks, minus the gonzo edge but with a jazz-pop buzz fueled by improvisation. Born in Seattle in early 2013 when long-time musical co-conspirators Isaac Chirino and Sean Fairchild were introduced by mutual friends to the

Time for the Elvis Birthday Bash in Olympia

At this year's Elvis Birthday Bash in Olympia, the King will be sharing the spotlight with the Godfather of Soul. The reason for the pairing is that Robert Washington, the first African American world champion Elvis impersonator, long a part of the 15th annual bash, also does a James Brown act. "I

The mind-blowing Peking Acrobats

There are whole grade schools in Zhonghua (aka the Republic of China), the Shanghai Circus School for one but with plenty to spare, devoted to grueling programs of acrobatic choreography, death-defying high wire and trapeze acts and ligament-stretching contortionism. Children as young as 6 get put through regimens that break
