The Three Ha-Migos

Tacoma, you're about to get funnier. And no, we aren't talking about more incessant and played out jokes about the "Aroma of Tacoma." We are talking about serious, laugh-‘til-it-hurts and asses-fall-off kind of funny. This is serious funny business for three local lads who love Tacoma, love really good comedy and have figured

Boathouse 19 wins Tournament of Mac and Cheese

While everyone else was thinking about the NCAA Basketball Tournament last week, at the Weekly Volcano, we were elbows deep in a culinary throwdown of epic proportions.  It was all about Mac and Cheese Madness, and brackets were lined with the "who's who'"of Tacoma eateries, which were pitted against each

Music Critics' Picks: Tacoma Songwriter Showcase, A Nightmare On Yelm Street, Scott Pemberton, the Gods Themselves

[SINGER-SONGWRITER] + FRI, APRIL 17 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

Saturday, April 18: 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

Thursday, April 23-Wednesday, April 29: Recital Week

Dude, somewhere - in the back of your closet, maybe - there's a necktie. You own one. Put it on. Or don't. Doesn't matter. Either way, it's time for you to get some culture. Luckily for you, this is recital week at Pacific Lutheran University, which serves as one-stop shopping

Allergies vs. colds

Blue skies and sunshine. Flowers in bloom. Fresh green grass. Leafy trees. Sure signs of spring to behold and savor. However, for longtime allergy sufferers like me, spring looks a little differently. Don't get me wrong; I enjoy the natural spring beauty like everyone else. However, when people see leaves and

The Gritty City Sirens aren't in Kansas anymore

Sometimes, the process of writing pulls me down a deep rabbit hole. Such was the case with Gritty City Sirens and their upcoming pair of reprise performances of Adventures in OZ. I searched for the burlesque troupe on YouTube and found one of their self-promotional videos. The music for that

Roses inhabit the fundamentally human land of John Hughes

Why are the soundtracks to John Hughes movies so popular, so evergreen? Nostalgia can't answer every question, despite how much Buzzfeed and Jimmy Fallon insist that it can and should. It's also not just because the soundtracks to Hughes' movies contain, arguably, the best of the best of '80s pop

Happy Belly classes

When you envision what a "Spring Sweets Baking Class" looks like, you are likely to break out in a sweat and be reminded of working alongside flour-covered counters with your granny. You may fear what side effects such a class will have on your waistline. Fear not, friends, because Happy

Wednesday, April 29: We Will Be Lions

We Will Be Lions are a shapeshifting wonder. Listen to "When Your Skirt Hits the Floor," and it sounds like the parallel universe where David Bowie ended up fronting Pulp; play "Burn Me Like a Disco," and they give the Flaming Lips a run for the title of most anthemic
