5 Things To Do Today: "Hannah Arendt," author Timothy Egan, Wally & The Beaves and more ...

Holding court: Hannah Arendt (Barbara Sukowa)

TUESDAY, OCT. 1 2013 >>>

1. The Grand Cinema screens Hannah Arendt, a biopic of influential German-Jewish philosopher and political theorist Hannah Arendt. Arendt's reporting on the 1961 trial of ex-Nazi Adolf Eichmann in The New Yorker - controversial both for her portrayal of Eichmann and the Jewish councils - introduced her now-famous concept of the "Banality of Evil." Using footage from the actual Eichmann trial and weaving a narrative that spans three countries, the film beautifully turns the often invisible passion for thought into immersive, dramatic cinema. Catch it at 2:40 and 6:45 p.m.

2. Every Tuesday, Maxwell's Speakeasy serves two chef's choice appetizers and two house wines or draft beers for $15. Chef Slater and server extraordinaire and wine pro Kent Bolden sample wines weeks in advance, mull them over, discuss possible pairings, sample more, then create an awesome dining experience.

3. Timberland Reads Together - a month-long series exploring a novel's importance in society through assemblies, images, film, live music and theater - has invited author Timothy Egan, who penned Short Nights of the Shadow Catcher: The Epic Life and Immortal Photographs of Edward Curtis, to kick off the program at 7 p.m. in the Olympia Timberland Library.  Egan will recount the pioneering photographer Edward Curtis' life-risking effort to document the disappearing North American Indian nation, offering insight into the danger and resolve behind his venture, his elevation to an impassioned advocate, and the posthumous discovery of his achievements. 

4. "Now Wally, I want you to go in the living room and pick up those orange peels that you left on the coffee table. If your father comes home and sees them he'll be in a terrible mood all through dinner and won't let you and The Beaves rock the Red Wind Casino at 6:30 p.m." - June Cleaver

5. Though the musicians at the Olympia Songwriters' Circle may not sit around and sing "Kumbaya," they are still offered a relaxed, supportive and collaborative vibe at 7 p.m. in Traditions Cafe. Everyone is invited to come with instruments, but the circle is also open to people who may only want to listen and observe.

Nerd Alert: A Toast to Frank Herbert and "Breaking Bad" Mega Happy Ending

TUESDAY, OCT. 8

In recent times, Frank Herbert has been getting a lot of attention in Tacoma for being the most accomplished local boy who nobody knows is from Tacoma. There's a movement afoot to get the Dune writer his own Tacoma park, which has once again shone the spotlight on Herbert. Tuesday, Tacoma's well-received new cocktail lounge Hilltop Kitchen will celebrate the science fiction author's birthday by creating six craft cocktails based on Herbert's work.

A joint production of Hilltop Kitchen, Post Defiance, Erik Hanberg (the man who has been pushing for Herbert's park) and King's Books, the event dubbed "Cocktails Through a Stillsuit: A Toast to Frank Herbert" will feature cocktails with names such as Duncan Idaho, Golden Path, and Orange Catholic. If any of those names ring a bell in your nerdy ears, it might behoove you to get a drink through a stillsuit. There will also be copies of Herbert's works available, in case all those names are meaningless to you. May as well pick up a copy of Dune and get caught up.

FROM NOW UNTIL THE END OF TIME

As I write this, it's been twenty-four hours since one of the greatest television shows of all time ended its triumphant run of unrivaled quality after five seasons. I speak, of course, of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.

Seriously, though, if you want to avoid spoilers about the finale of Breaking Bad - like, how CRAZY was it that Jesse was an alien the whole time? - now's the time to stop reading. Or, if you're one of those people who seems to take some sick pride in having never seen an episode of Breaking Bad, but still like to read recaps so you can keep track of this cultural phenomenon and make little snide remarks to your friends, I will NEVER understand you, and I would love for you stop reading, as well.

Is there any other way it could have gone? Jesse's free. Walt's money is going to an unwilling Flynn. Hank will have the opportunity to get a proper burial. Todd's dead as a doornail (he was also a Groucho Marx fan, if his ringtone is to be believed. Walt died like Jesse James. He will always be Heisenberg - a larger-than-life master criminal, a man who never made one false move.

It was a brilliant finale, a finale that strived unabashedly to please the fans. Not to bring anyone down, but you know that road that Jesse speeds away on to certain freedom? Is that same road that the cops sped in on?

You don't think ... Nah. Let's stick with the Mega Happy Ending.

Note: Pinkman died on the way back to his home planet.

Judging by the Trailer: "Runner Runner"

Justin Timberlake takes a gamble in the lead role of the casino crime drama "Runner Runner." Photo credit: Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation

A quick aside before we dive into the ludicrous Runner Runner: When I worked at The Grand Cinema, I had a friend and coworker who made the majority of his income in two ways, neither of which had anything to do with working at a movie theater. The more fanciful of the methods was that he would spend hours playing World of Warcraft, collecting in-game items that he would then sell to other gamers for real-life money. One man allegedly paid him $1,500, which he had to do in installations so his wife wouldn't notice.

The rest of his money was made in online poker. Needless to say, my friend's continued work at an art house theater should be an indication that online poker is, generally, not nearly as sexy and dangerous as Runner Runner says.

Starring Justin Timberlake in yet another role that comes nowhere close to matching the promise he showed in The Social Network and Alpha Dog, Runner Runner quickly raises its banner as the spiritual sequel to the equally ridiculous fake-poker classic, Rounders. Timberlake needs to raise funds for tuition, so he starts playing online poker (three tables at a time, which my friend also did), and almost wins the jackpot before being cheated by a mysterious opponent.

Soon enough, we're off to Costa Rica where Timberlake is seduced by Ben Affleck and the promise of endless riches as a professional poker dude (technical term). Brief glimpses of Deadmau5 and bikini-clad women follow, hammering home the point that it's pretty great to be rich and in Costa Rica. Ah, but the law catches up to Timberlake, turning him against Ben Affleck - who, it must be said, is chewing the scenery with even more voracity than that of the crocodiles he keeps in his super-villain backyard.

Poker on film is notoriously difficult to make exciting, which should explain why Runner Runner has made the choice to instead focus on people yelling at each other in a tropical locale.

Of interest to fans of Comedy Bang! Bang! and Parks and Recreation is the presence of Ben Schwartz, which just might make the experience of watching Runner Runner worth it. But probably not.

5 Things To Do Today: Marrow tasting menu, Science on Screen, Maurice The Fish, Mirrorgloss and more ...

What will Marrow Kitchen have on its tasting menu tonight? Photo credit: Pappi Swarner

WEDNESDAY, OCT. 2 2013 >>>

1. We realize that many people feel as though tasting menus are nothing more than ego-driven romps from chefs who care more about their own artistry and craftsmanship than they do about the desires of diners, but I admire chefs with confidence, chefs who advocate a sense of adventure - chefs, for instance, such as Kyle Wnuk, who creates a different tasting menu every Wednesday night at Marrow Kitchen and Bar. For $25, you could taste the future as Wnuk's Wednesday night playground often results in permanent placement on a season's menu. The price tag is a deal, compared to ordering three courses off the regular menu. And more fun, too.

2. The award-winning Hilltop Artists hosts its seventh annual fundraising luncheon, "Better Futures," at 11 a.m. in the Hotel Murano. Attendees will hear directly from students, families and community members about the impact of Hilltop Artists' glass arts programs and outreach work. They will also be able to participate in a silent auction and share a meal with others who are invested in transforming the futures of our youth.

3. The Grand Cinema's Science on Screen series pairs screenings of classic, cult, and documentary films with lively lessons by notable figures from the world of science, technology and medicine. Each film is used as a jumping off point for the speaker to reveal current scientific research or technological advances, providing the perfect combination of entertainment and enlightenment - even for the most science-phobic culture vulture. At 7 p.m. The Grand screens the documentary Blackfish, which argues that keeping orcas in captivity at theme parks isn't good for the whales, or the people who work with them. Donna Sandstrum, Puget Sound whale researcher and director of TheWhaleTrail.org, will discuss what whale-related conservation work is being done in the Puget Sound and what is the status of our orca whale population. The film also screens at 2:10 and 5 p.m. without the whale chat.

4. The Maurice The Fish Records has grabbed Wednesday nights at Jazzbones, showcasing its roster at 8 p.m. Tonight, Rafael Tranquilino and Brooke Lizotte rock the house.

5. Be a part of history. Be able to say, "I saw Mirrorgloss when they first got together." The new Tacoma band performs at 9 p.m. at Magoo's Annex.

It's Happening Tonight: Wednesday Night Concert Series

The Funk Agency has been called to the Urban Onion Lounge tonight. Photo courtesy of Facebook

After two years of programming live music in the Olympia Ballroom, Olympia music MVP Daniel Landin is bringing a live concert series downstairs to the Urban Onion Lounge.

Beginning tonight, weekly Wednesday night music acts will perform in the lounge, which serves as an all-ages gathering space until 11 p.m. Shows will begin at 8 p.m. and entry is a $5 suggested donation.

"The Urban Onion is a great room that will provide opportunities for more intimate shows, as well as larger crowds to dance and have a great time," said Landin. "I have started this series to give local bands an opportunity to perform and engage Olympia audiences, as well as giving great touring acts an opportunity to introduce themselves to Olympia."

First on the roster is The Funk Agency, followed by local bluegrass legends the Oly Mountain Boys Oct 9, local acoustic rocker Mudcat Oct 16, Sean Gaskell plays the kora, a West African harp, Oct 23,and the month rounds off with a gypsy jazz guitar ensemble led by Ariel Calabria Oct 30.

"I am hoping to connect Olympia with high quality performers on a regular basis here," said Landin. "Just as we get into the wet season, a warm place to have a good time with loved ones is always welcome - in this case with really great music."

WEDNESDAY NIGHT CONCERT SERIES, w/Funk Agency, 8 p.m., all-ages until 11 p.m., Urban Onion Lounge, 116 Legion Way SE, Olympia, $5, 360.943.9242

2013 Tacoma Film Festival opens tonight

The three high school be-atches are locked in a dead heat for prom queen, and they all need a fabulous gay BFF for the win.

The 2013 Tacoma Film Festival is shaping up to be everything a good film fest should be. There are movies from around the world, flicks in a variety of languages, screenings exploring the margins of different societies, and films from the comedy, drama, and short film categories and local ditties. Yes, this festival hosted by The Grand Cinema packs quite the cinematic wallop.

An opening night party with a screening of "G.B.F." ("Gay Best Friend") kicks off the festival tonight. Film enthusiasts will first gather in Annie Wright's Great Hall to scarf down full dinner by Maxwell's Speakeasy and tip a beer or two. Then TFF Executive Director Philip Cowan will hold our hands down to Kemper Theater for the screening of said film that tells the story of popular teenagers Fawcett (Sasha Pieterse), Caprice (Xosha Roquemore) and ‘Shley (Andrea Bowen), and the season's must-have accessory - and golden ticket to being Prom Queen - a G.B.F., or a gay best friend. The only problem? There are no gay men at their school - who are out, at least. But a Grindr-like app allows the girls to identify the closeted Tanner (Michael J. Willett) and adopt him as their own, transforming him from a shy social outcast to the high school's hottest commodity. But, of course, not everyone is pleased with Tanner's sudden rise to stardom.

Bonus: G.B.F. screenwriter George Northy will be in the house and film guru Warren Etheredge will host a Q&A with him after film.

Stuff to know about tonight: 6:30 p.m., film at 7:30 p.m., Annie Wright Kemper Theater, 827 N. Tacoma Ave., $25 Grand Cinema members, $30 non-members, $11 movie only, buy tickets here.

5 Things To Do Today: Clam Boil, cooking demo, Wash. Center kickoff, Kurt Lindsay and more ...

Keep clam at Salty's tonight.

THURSDAY, OCT. 3 2013 >>>

1. Writing in her 1891 compilation, Mrs. Lincoln's Boston Cookbook, Mrs. D.A. Lincoln describes a clam boil as follows: "An impromptu clambake may be had at any time at low tide along the coast where clams are found. If you wish to have genuine fun, and to know what an appetite one can have for the bivalves, make up a pleasant party and dig for the clams yourselves." Thankfully, attendees of Satly's Clam Boil can forgo that last bit about digging the clams themselves, since the Redondo Beach restaurant will have people to do it for them. That leaves 'boilgoers with the lighter task of enjoying Manila and savory clams (plucked from local waters) with prawns, fresh sweet corn, potatoes and spicy sausage. From 5:30-7 p.m. anyone who comes to the Clam Boil dressed as a clam - silver from head to toe - wins a prize, in addition to the fun of washing off silver face paint all night.

2. Longtime Bayview School of Cooking instructor Barb Agee has grapes on the brain. She'll be at the Bayview Thriftway from 9-11 a.m. and 1-3 p.m. to showcase her grapes, cheese, walnut and honey appetizer and her seared fennel and cayenne-spiced chicken with pan-roasted grapes and gastrique dishes live. Her cooking demonstrations are free and open to the public.

3. The Washington Center for the Performing Arts invites the public to a special season-opening reception and performance from 5-6:30 p.m.  The Olympia arts house will serve champagne and light hors d'oeuvres before enjoying the world-class, high energy music of Jon Batiste and Stay Human in his West Coast debut. Meet new Executive Director Jill Barnes and bid on art donated by local artists. Baptiste hits the stage at 8 p.m.

4. Weekly Volcano music critic Rev. Adam McKinney says there's vocal similarities between Kurt Lindsay and late cult singer-songwriter Jeff Buckley. The Rev. says, "Lindsay's voice, like Buckley's (though, of course, no one can truly touch Jeff Buckley, vocally), is simultaneously full of bravado and wounded timidity. It quivers with feeling, though it might be noted that Lindsay's voice often comes across as more lost, searching, which adds a nice element to what is largely music that errs toward modern rock, with some detours to friendly mixers like R&B and folk." See for yourself over a beer or three at 6 p.m. when Lindsay joins Jamie Nova for a show at the Y Sports Bar in Spanaway.

5. Besides being all fancy, the Hotel Murano is dang smart. It knows a good thing when it hears it. The Kareem Kandi Band is back to fill the lobby with jazz from 8:30 to 11:30 p.m.

5 Things To Do Today: Hoedown, Tacoma Greek Festival, Oktoberfest Northwest, Olympia Arts Walk and more ...

The Brothers Jim perform tonight at B2 Fine Art Gallery in Tacoma. Photo courtesy of Facebook

FRIDAY, OCT. 4, 2013 >>>

1. Musical performances during openings at B2 Fine Art Gallery are nothing new, but the gallery is branching out into music in a big way with the first of a two-part series of art celebrating music. "SPIN 1: American Vinyl Exhibition" - which has been extended through Nov. 16 - is the first of two shows with portraits of musicians in photography and paint augmented with vinyl records to buy, sell and trade; gallery talks and musical performances throughout the duration of the exhibition. This first show focuses on gospel, blues, country and folk, and includes art and photography celebrating giants of music from Woody Gutherie and Robert Johnson to Dylan. at 8 p.m., B2 hosts a Country/Folk Hoedown featuring The Brothers Jim and Scuff & Al's Goodtime Preservation Society. Net proceeds to benefit the National Blues Foundation Hart Fund and Tacoma's Eloise's Cooking Pot Food Bank.

2. We love Tacoma's Annual St. Nicholas Greek Festival. We love the group dancing, the fine food; hell, we even love yelling "Opa!" for no apparent reason. But let's be real. For us, the entire festival is just a complicated set dressing for a baklava-delivery system. Oh, we'll hang out and listen to them ramble on about Socrates, the Olympics and "My Big Fat Greek Wedding," but we'll be picking the flaky crumbs from our shirts and stuffing them into our hungry taste-holes while we do it. We'll dance beginning at 5 p.m. and eat the food - lamb, pork souvlaki, salata, loukomades, dolmades, tyropitakia -  not just because we like it, but in an attempt to bring the honey content in our blood down low enough so we can scarf down another slab of triangular goodness. In its 52nd year, the Greek Festival at St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church - 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. - will donate a portion of proceeds to the Fish Food Bank.

3. Beer! Lederhosen! Beer! Bratwurst! Beer! Yodeling! Beer! Austrian Amazon! Beer! Oktoberfest Northwest has all of these fine things, but, most importantly, it has beer. The official opening ceremony and tapping of the Oktoberfest firkin by the 2013 Festmaster will take place at 6:15 p.m., although, beer will be served from the opening at 11 a.m. Other event highlights happening at the Washington State Fair & Event Center include a large Biergarten entertainment hall with national and international German bands and entertainers, authentic German cuisine, the German Corner gift section, the Miss Oktoberfest Northwest Swing Girl and the running of the wiener dogs. And don't forget to wash all that German food down with ... well, you know, beer!

4. There are those among us who can make their trip to a hair stylist the most riveting story you've heard all week. People whose stories never trail off into "it was really cool. ..." Envy them. They are not like you. Not only do they have great success at parties, they have a future at the Olympia Timberland Library. See what all the storytelling fuss is about with "Listen Here: A Lunch Break Story Time for Adult." The first Friday of every month, professional audiobook narrator and voice actor Corey Snow will entertain and inspire you with readings from the wide, wonderful world of short fiction from 12:10-12:50 p.m.  If you can stand a 10-minute hairdo story, just imagine how riveted you'll be by something with an actual plot.

5. Before entertainment moves indoors, and the comedy and theater season swings into play, Olympia likes to have one more outdoor celebration - Fall Arts Walk. Nearly 100 businesses will open their doors and sidewalks to artists, musicians and performers for two days, allowing Olympia to showcase, network and entertain. A stroll through town will promise to be a treasure trove of delight tonight from 5-10 p.m. More than 250 artists will saturate the town with creativity. Look for art in all places; perhaps stumble across a wine tasting while observing oil paintings. Expect street musicians, live art and surprising mediums. Stephanie Johnson, arts and events manager for the city of Olympia, says, "Arts Walk is always new" because, while she provides the framework, it's the businesses and artists that get to collaborate in new and exciting ways.

Harmon Tap Room Tacoma - Stadium District. Justin Martin, Half Kingdom, Zebra Mirrors. 9 pm.

  • I know next to nothing about Half Kingdom, beyond what I can hear in their two available songs online. What I can tell, just by listening to them, is that they embrace a moody post-punk that teems with energy even as it confounds expectations. Clattering drums and choppy guitars give way to swelling synths. By the end of the first song, everything has become engulfed in insistent tones wrestling for sonic supremacy. The second song, appropriately titled "Tempest," begins slow, but continues on, building to a clamorous climax as trilling synthesizers leak in from the sides. It seems clear to me that they have a firm grasp on mood and design, but seeing them live is the only way to find out just what else they can do. - Rev. Adam McKinney

  • Originally, this music pick was going to be about Olympia rockers Horse Bodies, who never cease to have high-energy rock shows, but as I investigated the rest of the bill, I have decided to include other bands, like Highlight Bomb, who are ready to play Olympia for the first time in more than a year. Highlight Bomb tease on the side of punk rock but rely heavily on the alt-rock vibe of the '90s, meaning lots of angst and harmony combined with catchy riffs and reverb. Also on the bill are Spittin Cobras, in the midst of their West Coast tour. This band will bring just enough fast paced, in your face, no bullshit rock to balance out the bill. - Nikki McCoy
