Blue Scholars, Rebecca Riots and others

Thursday, Nov. 1 COUNTRY the ginn sisters Despite their celebrity status, I actually like the Dixie Chicks. Shocking, I know. The reason I dig them is they play in a neo-traditional style that incorporates progressive bluegrass and classic country. Akin to the Chicks, the Ginn Sisters are well-versed in the ways of

Breakin' for Beverly

It’s about time — another b-boy battle in Tacoma. The honest truth — Tacoma is blessed to have some of the best in the world and some of the best b-boy battles on the left coast. I’ll gladly argue with anyone who wants to disagree. This weekend South Sound hip-hop

Fun with math, Halloween style

Here’s something to nibble on: that sweet morsel of Halloween candy that you just popped into your mouth had somewhere between 70 to 90 calories, if it was a snack-sized thing. That little bag that you thought was a healthier choice — the peanut M&Ms, since peanuts are a source

Dannie Neitzelt

Dannie Neitzelt is a smooth operator, even more so when off the clock from her barista gig for Tully’s. We found her Monday night at Top of Tacoma Bar enjoying a new cocktail she just made up, the Dolly (as in Parton). Neitzelt is a smart shopper. She doesn’t waste her coin

Art @ Work

Tacoma’s Art at Work Month has become a Godzilla’s feast of literary, visual and performing arts. Is there any other town of comparable size in the Western Hemisphere that has anything to match it? I don’t think so. November is Art at Work Month. Festivities begin with an opening celebration

Go "Into The Woods"

For a show not well seated in reality, take a trip to Seattle to see “Into the Woods” by Stephen Sondheim. The show tells the story of a fabled baker and his wife as they journey into the woods on a quest to lift a witch’s curse so they can

Roller derby finals, Art at Work and more

THE CONTEST Define-a-Thon Funny, I was just in Goodwill the other day and saw a (used) For Dummies product that made me wince openly. It was, I think, Cookies for Dummies. Not a book. Some sort of kit. Some sort of toxic powdered mix in a large porcelain Dummies-logoed container, with dumbed-down

Good, ribald fun in Hell

Say “let’s go to the opera” and eyes may glaze with visions of large women in Viking hats breaking beer bottles with their sustained vibrato. Say “let’s go to a two-hour romp with dancing and singing, centering around a bawdy story about philandering gods” and the reaction might change. Turns out, in

"The Wives of Marty Winters"

Some irresistible people showed up and took over Alec Clayton\'s mind. Marty Winters; his wild wife, Maria Perez; his second wife, Selena; their kids; and some good friends: They come to life in Clayton\'s third novel. And beware: They\'ll burrow into your mind, too.  "The Wives of Marty Winters" opens

Wolves In the Throne Room

Black metal is not a musical genre I pretend to connect with or even understand for that matter. I don’t say this negatively, I say it honestly. Black metal is beyond me. That doesn’t mean it’s bad, it means I don’t get it. I don’t comprehend advanced mathematics either, and

"Dan's" the man

Steve Carell of “The 40-Year-Old Virgin” has a personality, or maybe it is a lack of personality, that is growing on me. He is content to exist on the screen without sending wild semaphores of his intentions, his uniqueness and how funny he is. He’s an everyman like a very

Scary Day the right way

Bobble Tiki loves all holidays — or most of them anyway. Bobble Tiki loves Christmas because he loves getting presents. Bobble Tiki loves Thanksgiving because he loves stuffing his face. And Bobble Tiki loves Halloween because he loves dressing up like a damn fool. While Halloween falls on a Wednesday this

Club Impact battles

Battle one During round one, “the metal round” of Club Impact’s Battle of the Bands on Sept. 22, a band from Tacoma/Seattle called Embalmed arose victorious. During round two, “the punk-rawk round” on Oct. 6, Lakewood’s own Sane Through Disorder was the clear winner. Oct. 13, after the pop/rock/alternative round, Puyallup’s

Trick or eat?

For many a Hallow’s Eve, the Proctor businesses have opened their doors to wee ones on Oct. 31, 4-6 p.m., for safe and sane trick-or-treating as parents stroll behind. For those who are childless, still hanging from the night before, or reluctant to join the throngs of would-be Paris Hiltons,
