DJs and blues switcheroo

Bobble Tiki doesn’t claim to be the most observant Tiki in the world, but he’s fairly adept at noticing the obvious. When Bobble Tiki slipped inside Jazzbones last Wednesday, it didn’t take him long to realize he wasn’t looking at the Blues Theatre he was expecting. Randy Oxford was nowhere

The Most Awesome Protagonist

There’s not much room on Le Voyeur’s stage. Anyone who’s been to the Olympia club knows that. For this reason, and many others, when the one man band known as The Most Awesome Protagonist hits Le Voyeur this Sunday, Jan. 13, it’ll be a perfect fit. The Most Awesome Protagonist is

How to release a CD

Software programs like Garageband and Cubase have made it easier for bands to go the DIY route and record their music at home, but after the stop button is pressed on the last take, the business side of the process begins. This is often the biggest challenge for independent musicians.

U.P. Station Bar & Grill

When Bandito Betty first moved to Tacoma, and began looking for a bartending job, she often contemplated U.P. Station Bar & Grill. Unfortunately, she was too chicken shit to go inside and check it out. It looks quite small and uninviting from the outside, and there were always the same

The Freakouts

Rock and roll is a youthful expression. It’s how the music was created and what it was meant to be. Rock and roll is about rebellion and energy and letting loose — all things you do better young. No matter how many more tours the Rolling Stones sellout, the facts

Dead Air Fresheners, 7 on 7 and others

Thursday, Jan. 10 SYNTH PUNK unicorn basement Just when I think I know everything about music, I get thrown for a loop. Part New Wave, part punk and part noise rock, Unicorn Basement is an experimental synth duet who are as quirky as Zappa, but their low-fi synthetic sound is more accessible

Black and white is in

What’s black, white and chic all over? Everything this season. The combo of black and white has been a fashion statement ever since the days of Coco Chanel and Elisa Schiaparelli, and it’s back for 2008. This trendy twosome was spotted all over the spring runways in bold silhouettes and

A more sophisticated thriller

Now here is an excellent example of why it is more frightening to await something than to experience it. “The Orphanage” has every opportunity to descend into routine shock and horror, or even into the pits with the slasher pictures, but it pulls the trigger only a couple of times.

Kick the "Bucket List"

“The Bucket List” is a movie about two old codgers who are nothing like people, both suffering from cancer that is nothing like cancer, and setting off on adventures that are nothing like possible. I urgently advise hospitals: Do not make the DVD available to your patients; there may be

Keep trim at local restaurants

The New Year is here and yet we are still stuck with the same bodies we had last year. There is this dire need to renew and refresh. Eat healthy, workout, drink less, get more sleep, and it MUST begin January 1. But in reality, you were most likely hung

I just can't commit

If you haven’t guessed by now, I’m a complete commitment phob and that even applies to my skin. I have to let you cutting-edge readers down by saying that there’s not one tattoo that graces my entire body. That’s not because I frown upon tattoos. Oh no, I actually find them to

Can you strut your stuff in fur?

Time warp

As juried art shows go, the Third Annual Regional Juried Art Exhibit at the Kenneth J. Minnaert Art Center, South Puget Sound Community College, is not bad. There are some old friends as well as some excellent artists I’ve never before seen. There are a couple of sappy landscapes, a

Colin A Go Go Birthday Bash

January jollies

“urinetown” Time to go with the flow. Tacoma Musical Playhouse’s production of “Urinetown” is a cross between “How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying,” “Logan’s Run” and a yeast infection. The play follows the tale of a town that quite literally can’t pee without padding a corporate pocket. [Narrows Theater,
