420 Funk Mob, Boneyard Crawlers, and others

Thursday, Nov. 15 PSYCHOBILLY boneyard crawlers When I hear the name “Boneyard Crawlers,” I instantly think of something completely different than what the Tacoma-based psychobilly band probably had in mind. Because I’m all about hip lingo, I often refer to Jazzbones as “the Boneyard.” Having worked the door at the club, I’m more

Matt Coughlin

There’s a fine line between a totally sappy love song and an intelligent portrait of a relationship. Not many singer/songwriters can pull it off, but Tacoma’s own Matt Coughlin has the ability to wear his heart on his sleeve without making me want to puke. Originally from Belgrade, Mont., Coughlin

Margaret's Café

The phrase “good things come in small packages” came to my mind recently while I was patiently waiting in line this week at a staple T-Town location. In downtown Tacoma, there’s an absolutely charming business with an equally charming owner, and both are small and cozy. Margaret’s Café Margaret’s was opened by Margaret

Hitting 'em with art

Consider Friday night’s Art Slam at the Rialto Theater to be, sort of, like a blending of Laser Pink Floyd and that art class you had freshman year, only cooler than either because the event is sprinkled with a liberal dose of the essence of Tacoma. Basically, what you have is

Dancers, games and bad sweaters

THE DANCE Josh Rizeberg can “MOVE!” Josh Rizeberg and producer Xaviant are about to answer a lot of prayers. The native poet and beatsmith have alchemically distilled something really special. It’s not hip-hop. It’s not spoken word. Don’t call it fusion, please. The duo’s first collaboration, dubbed “Spoken Worlds,” features tight, grimy

The Taste of Tacoma Best Entrée winner for 2006 and 2007 enjoys plenty of sun and light streaming through cream colored, curtain-draped windows trimmed in lush teal

Gone with the tropical breeze

I am on my way home after nine days of tropical sun, food and fruity drinks. This was our (the husband and my) second trip to Kauai, Hawaii, and it was everything it was before and more — almost.  We visited prior haunts and new digs. Many places have stayed

Meconi's Pub & Eatery's Guinness

I have a very simple policy about eating meals while drinking: I don’t. Not, at least, when my goals for the night include over-inebriation. Snacks and appetizers? Fine. But big, juicy bacon cheeseburgers and a side of sweet potato fries? Sweet Christ, never while boozing, and never, ever while on

Fall into a beer

Just because the leaves are falling to the floor like Paris Hilton in a night club bathroom doesn’t mean the beer-chugging season is over. It has actually just begun. First out of the chute this month in the beer world is a shout-out to the Tacoma Beer Society as it continues

It's Italian for 'quaint'

ANNOUNCER: The boys have made the Brotherhood Tavern their satellite office ever since they were old enough to pay their own tab (though they seldom do). The shuffleboard, the funky lights, the velvet U.S. presidents, the hipsters — heaven. But when they have had their fill of cash-only booze, they

Chasing iconoclasts

There is a hallowed hall in the hearts of sensitive, self-consciously intellectual music lovers that is dedicated to singer-songwriters who managed to craft their art in equal deference to the heart and mind. Pop music history is littered with people that wrote songs like novels, that wrote songs like slyly

Two intriguing shows at University of Puget Sound

Christopher Paul Jordan might well be Tacoma's most prolific artist, and his fame is quickly spreading to Seattle and elsewhere -- deservedly so for this recent Neddy Artist Awards winner, if his latest show at Kittredge Gallery is any indication. The show is called "Latent Home," and it features powerful work

A Christmas Carol

A Christmas Carol as adapted by James Venturini for Lakewood Playhouse is probably as close to the way Charles Dickens himself would adapt it for the stage if he were alive today. In his day, Dickens toured the world telling stories and reading from his books, so it is appropriate that

Crafting beautiful boozes

Folks enjoy libations for a variety of reasons: in celebration of grand victories, during moments of mourning, sips simply hyphenating bites of a well-prepared meal. Really, a tasty spirit is all about history and good stories and Chambers Bay Distillery adopts this ideal. It all began at Hudtloff Junior High in

Even for the traditionally prestigious holiday movie season, the rest of the 2017 calendar is loaded with Hall of Fame talent. I'm not talking about the actors, though dozens of the brightest stars in the world WILL be featured in upcoming films. I'm talking about the filmmakers: Guillermo del Toro (Pan's Labyrinth)
