Candye Kane, John Courage and others

Thursday, Nov. 29 ROCK beautiful mothers I must admit I have no clue what’s going on with one of my favorite local bands, the Beautiful Mothers. Many indications seem to suggest the Mothers have disbanded, yet they’re most definitely scheduled to play Hell’s Kitchen tonight. The band’s MySpace page has a video

Finn Riggins

Idaho isn’t known for much, but that seems to be changing. Bands like Hailey, Idaho’s Finn Riggins are reinventing the potato state. Of course, Idaho has had Built to Spill for some time now, but besides that, it’s mainly been starchy tubers, Mark Fuhrman, and Jake Plummer. That’s a pretty impressive list,

Similar garage rock to a point

When Pierced Arrows played the Brotherhood Lounge in October, it was hard not to take note. Considering both Fred and Toody Cole, from Dead Moon fame, play in Pierced Arrows, how could you not be intrigued by the couple’s new band? Oregon’s Dead Moon were the definition of seminal over

Barefoot Studios reopens

Moving is never easy and more difficult for businesses, yet Tacoma’s Barefoot Studios has made the leap and settled in a new location. Many factors in 2006 made the move for Barefoot a necessity, not the least being a 50-percent rent increase.  Owners Paul and Josephine Zmolek moved from their

Kitty Diggins moves in

This week I became one of the luckiest girls in the world because I got something that’s going to help me with my personal finances, safety and general quality of life. I got a roommate! Hellooooo Ian! He’s been one of my best pals ever since I moved back to Seattle after

Tacoma Gnome

Leave it to Natasha to launch a full-blown investigation to get to the bottom of a question that has been on the lips of so many Tacomans. Who in the heck is the Tacoma Gnome? In case your eyes have been closed in the City of Destiny, there’s this pint-sized gnome that

The King of rock and roll

Broadway, Tacoma, United States, the World. Walk down a street, notice empty store fronts with official looking signs ensuring they’ll remain empty for a while. Pass the Rainbow Center and Club Silverstone. Go too far and hit the Republican Party storefront. But what’s this? Yep, you’re seeing it with me. There,

Skinny chef

Back in the day, I was a diver on the high school diving team. In the water, we girls all pretty much looked the same, devoid of makeup and crazy-eighties big hair. The boys, slicked-down wet and wearing tight little skivvies, were unrecognizable in the halls by day, prompting me

Strings attached

Ah, the power of an apron. It’s a nostalgic thing in my world: I remember reruns of “Leave it to Beaver,” “Ozzie and Harriet” and “The Donna Reed Show” where the perfect mom always had a smile and an apron. I remember making Hungarian baked goods with my mom during the

Erin Rose

We all know a successful holiday season requires one to excel at certain special skills: There’s the one-handed, come-from-behind sale-table grab; the ability to remain perfectly calm while trying to maneuver between two fat ladies, an ocean of package-laden strollers (where’s the baby?) and a Santa line backed up all

Inspired Elegance

Following the reality TV show trend, local designers and creative teams will be under pressure to craft wearable art within a 24-hour period. Former PBS producer Jamie Chase, now of the community art center Tacoma Art Place on Hilltop Tacoma, will film the process for broadcast during the live fashion

Shopping at the drug store

I one-stop shop Commitment is a difficult thing to embrace in the world of cosmetics. A television ad for a sensational new mascara that promises to make my lashes look five times longer, plumper, thicker and natural recently invaded my senses. Of course, skepticism is present, but that doesn’t negate my

ArtsFund Luncheon

“Vibrant.” “Livable.” “Vital.” “Viable.” Not bad, in terms of adjectives used to describe a city where once, the best that could hope for was a local paper deeming it “gritty.” But now, this little, vibrant city of ours that could is being featured in the Smithsonian magazine as one of five places

Lots of singing this week

“sleeping beauty” “Sleeping Beauty,” a stage version of the classic tale complete with a dude in a dragon suit, is a fun show if you have some time to kill. There’s a curse. There’s a spindle. There’s a deep sleep and a charming prince out to rescue the narcoleptic royalty. Tacoma

Festival of Tress, Banff Film Fest and more

THE CONCERT School of Rock While he’s no Dewey Finn, author and activist Derrick Jensen will join the Portland School of Rock band Friday, Nov. 30 as a fund-raiser for the School of Rock scholarship fund. I love kids as much as the next tiki, but truth be told, I was a

Is this jazz?

If the words “Wayne Horvitz is going to play in Olympia” doesn’t mean much, keep reading. A multi-genre veteran, Horvitz and compatriots comprise aptly-named Sweeter than the Day. Offering a breathtaking trip to the event horizon of experimental jazz, blues and a few other categorical clichés, Sweeter than the Day is

MxPx and Jesus

The last time I wrote about Club Impact was on the Weekly Volcano’s blog Spew (www.weeklyvolcanospew.com), and it was in regard to the disturbance complaints being levied against the all-ages venue by neighboring business owners. Though, at the time, I would have told you the intention of my words was

Queen Latifah

Grammy-winning entertainment machine Queen Latifah is making a reportedly exclusive Northwest stop in ... Tacoma? Yes, not a week after we were blessed with the presence of George Clinton and 420 Funk Mob, another reason to give thanks and praise. Add Queen Latifah Wednesday, Nov. 28, live at the Pantages
