62nd season of dance

Tacoma might be known as the "Grit City," but its residents have been enjoying the ethereal beauty of performing arts since the city was founded in 1875. The city's constantly expanding arts community provides plenty of theater, live music and dance performances to audiences each year, livening otherwise bleak seasons

Lights, curtains, action!

There's just too much to do in the South Sound, and it's annoying. We try to cover everything, but sometimes that means cramming a world of entertainment into a scant few column inches.

The Seattle Official Bad Art Museum of Art

The military loves to use acronyms, and the Seattle Official Bad Art Museum of Art (OBAMA) is no different.  Ironically, the acronym predates the 2008 presidential election. The OBAMA room at the Café Racer, which hosts the museum, is homage to bad art and not our former president. Café Racer owner
