Saturday, April 18: Vicci Martinez

Despite having a tenure as a signee to a Universal Records affiliate, grabbing a modest hit with her Cee Lo Green collaboration, "Come Along," and generally gaining a huge swath of new fans, Vicci Martinez has returned to Tacoma and to her more independent roots. Teaming up with local hip-hop

Saturday, April 18: "Adventures In Oz"

Pasties, butt cheeks and hip-hop Toto return to Tacoma as the Gritty City Sirens' Adventures in Oz, a Wizard of Oz-inspired burlesque production, returns to the Temple Theater Ballroom. This Tacoma makeover of L. Frank Baum's classic may be campy, but it still follows the famous Dorothy down the Yellow Brick Road

Friday, April 17-Sunday, May 10: "The 39 Steps"

When then-young filmmaker Alfred Hitchcock used all the tools of early cinema to tell the unlikely but entertaining espionage tale of John Buchan's 1915 novel The 39 Steps, the audience of 1935 marveled at the "realistic" visions of derring-do. The modern eye can easily see the holes in Hitch's primitive

Thursday, April 16: Steady Lean

It may say more about me than it does about the band in question, but I initially was convinced that Steady Lean's name was an anagram of Steely Dan. A cursory examination of the letters will prove that this is not true, and a spin of their music will point

Through April 19: Washington State Spring Fair

As the Washington State Fair opens its spring version from April 16-19, savvy South Sounders might ask: "Who goes to the fair, anyway, besides farmers and grandparents?" Well, put down your Cosmos and snap on some overalls, because the answer is ... you. Organizers say that this year's edition, while

Tuesday, April 14: Haunted Summer

Los Angeles duo Haunted Summer bring a dimensionality and range to dream pop that's as refreshing as it is intriguing. Without sacrificing the gauzy serenity that typifies the genre, they bring inflections of '50s pop (as on the swaying "Ain't One" and their swooning cover of Animal Collective's "Bees") and

Saturday, April 11: Kurupt and Kokane's West Coast Party

"Legendary" is not a word to be tossed around, but I can't think of a better description for West Coast rap/hip-hop legends Kurupt of Tha Dogg Pound and Pamona-bred hookmaster Kokane, and their "West Coast Party." Kurupt is no stranger to the Pacific Northwest, having made nearly a dozen visits

Rock Climbing 101

Rock climbing is a sport everyone I know wants to try but very few actually do. Every time I post a photo on Instagram or complain about my latest set of bruises I inevitably get a follow up from some one of "(sigh) I've always wanted to try that." My

Celebrating 50 years of art at Tacoma Community College

Friday, April 17: Tacoma Songwriter Showcase...of the Immortals!

When most singer-songwriters show up at open mics, what you can expect is a series of weepy ladies and gentlemen strumming away on acoustic guitars. In direct opposition to these expectations, what you will find Friday at the New Frontier Lounge is a horse of a different color. Featuring many

Saturday night, the people from For MCs By MCs have something big going on in the town of Yelm. Yes, hip-hop is everywhere. Yes, the South Sound MC battle circuit continues to flourish with another ring-king experience of lyricism aptly titled, "A Nightmare On Yelm Street." Produced and hosted by For

Imagine the clouds parted, a mother ship from planet Funkatron descended, and an alien musician slithered out to encounter ... a Les Paul electric guitar. How would said E.T. approach that unfamiliar instrument? He or she might just lay the axe down on a rock and play it horizontally, like

Luchadores assemble!

Very soon, a team of costumed heroes will reunite. The world at large may never know their true identities, but these supermen (and one superwoman) wage a never-ending battle against absolute villainy. Their muscles flexing proudly, brows furrowed 'neath colorful cowls, they stride forward, shoulder to shoulder, fists raised to

Saturday, April 18: The Gods Themselves

Any band confident enough to title a song of theirs "I Am the President" is one worthy of standing up and paying attention. Seattle trio the Gods Themselves present themselves with an inscrutable swagger. Nominally a psych-rock band, there are elements ladled on that point to the heavy rock movement

Deadbeat Olympia's concert subverts Record Store Day

When talking with Deadbeat Olympia owner and booker Brandon Rowley, he said that he once met with a 70-year-old Olympia lifer who imparted some wisdom: "Every day should be Record Store Day." Record Store Day is a fundamentally confounding tradition. Just like every other new holiday, Record Store Day has its
