Rockin' the new Way

The scene on South Tacoma Way is set for a music revolution. Now people just need to venture out and check it for themselves. I went last Saturday and was very excited by what I saw. No longer dark and scary, I saw actual foot traffic of happy laughing party-goers

Santa Stefanowicz's gift

I wasn’t quite ready for the holiday season this year. It seems impossible that it could be time for Christmas shopping and Thanksgiving celebrations already. No matter how many commercials for diamond pendants and sport utility crossovers I saw on television; I just couldn’t seem to get into the holiday

What comes around ...

It’s not easy to engage a live audience in an age where people channel surf while text messaging, talking on the phone, eating dinner, checking e-mail and updating their MySpace pages. Spending an hour or two watching a singer/songwriter is great if you are already a big fan or if

Vagabond Opera

A night with Vagabond Opera is a plunge down the rabbit hole into dirty European Gypsy immigrant love. Only in this rabbit hole, instead of Alice’s encounter with a phobic albino bunny and a feline with daily tooth whitening appointments, this trip includes a flame-masticating dancer with a hula hoop

Radio Tacoma

I was hooked the moment I heard the name Radio Tacoma via a friend request on MySpace. I aimed my computer at it. Though the online station is less than two months old, the selections on the playlist range from the old-timey Tacoma classics like the live recorded crooning of

Cuddling never sounded so good

Fall is finally upon us and while the rain gathers in puddles beneath our feet, thoughts of winter survival flood our brains. Will we hole up in our humble abodes with the TV remote and a Lean Cuisine dinner? Heck no! We are Washingtonians, so a little drizzle or even

The marriage between fashion, art and music at urbanXchange is a reflection of what has been occurring

A great day in Tacoma

A group of Tacoma musicians who sheepishly refer to themselves as the “old farts club” get together once every month for lunch to tell stories and talk over old times. One day, one of these musicians, Bud Schultz, said it would be neat for everyone to pose together for a
