HUSTLER OF CULTURE
You can stand atop the mountain and scream your naked desires to the universe or shed that synapse epilepsy and hug the South Sound today with your fellow man:
MUSIC: Tonight at Club Impact â€" inconveniently located on the corner of Ninth and Pacific, luring rowdy youth into one of Tacomaâ€™s finest neighborhoods and mass transit hubs â€" a folk/acoustic show with Cavalier, A Secret Kept, David Levang, Cassie Corelle, The Overcast, and Clearwall is planned to go down. Damn those kids and their acoustic/folk! To Bobble Tiki thereâ€™s nothing more threatening than teen-agers in a group. Tacoma must nip this problem in the bud, before kids start thinking theyâ€™ve got something to do.
MORE MUSIC: What's on tonight.
EVENTS: Check out area haunted houses.
DRINK: Silent but deadly.
BOBBLE TIKIâ€™S THREATS AND PROMISES COLUMN
A few weeks ago Bobble Tiki received a stuffed manila envelope from the band Intervision, who will be up from Portland to play Jazzbones Saturday, Oct. 20. Inside was a copy of Intervisionâ€™s second record, Shades of Neptune, released earlier this year. The envelope also contained a brief bio, describing Intervision as "soul/R&B/Pop-rock," and saying the group combines "elements of soul, rock, jazz, and pop, the quintet is earning lofty comparisons to bands like Steely Dan, Stevie Wonder, and Jamiroquai, yet have created their own intensely unique sound." Check out the band here.
