Danii Blackwell looks good

Danii Blackwell shows off her style at the Nordstrom fashion show at the Museum of Glass, though she is, in point of fact, not wearing anything from Nordstrom. Her wool knickers, old-school type that I can remember wearing in the mid-eighties, though never with that much confident élan, came from Chinatown. The

Rock me, ‘Amadeus’

A lesser person would think that a play named “Amadeus” would be about that composer dude who wrote “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star” before he had his first blemish and hammered out the score of some of the world’s best musical works before he had the obligation to shave his face.

Rachel Corrie and Robin Hood

Rachel Corrie “My Name is Rachel Corrie” is a telling play about a Olympia native who traveled to the Gaza Strip to aid Palestinians in 2003 only to die at a protest when a bulldozer crushed her. Her story became headline news around the world and shed light on the struggles

Sister Spit, surfing and more

THE STAGE Last chance This is the last weekend to see Capital Playhouse’s thumping musical “Ain’t Misbehavin.’“ The Tony Award-winning musical chronicles the music, the time and the life of one Mr. Thomas Waller, who would go down in history as Fats. The show has his hit works “Honeysuckle Rose,” “Ain’t Misbehavin,’”

Give the Broadway Center your mind

The high-pitched squeal of feedback is not a sound you want to hear on stage, but behind the scenes the people at Broadway Center for the Performing Arts are collecting feedback of a different kind. The Broadway Center board has some younger hipper members now who would like to bring

Afternoon delight

This week I was able to sneak something in that I really, really enjoy — I like to call it Afternoon Delight. I’m sorry to let you down by saying that it doesn’t include early evening sex, but sometimes it’s just as much fun. I love to take a sleepy Saturday and

Home of the brave

Now that the nightlife circuit in Tacoma is really starting to fill in as more and more bars and lounges take their seat here, a new lease on life is coming to establishments that have deserved our attention all along. Meconi’s Pub and Eatery, and Vin Grotto Café and Wine Bar

Magick, eggs and Ostara

Crescent Moon Gifts thrums with the energy of shoppers milling about, asking questions of “Shoppe Keeper” Angela Wehnert during a time that’s traditionally not busy.  Later, Wehnert explains that the energy in the space had been oppressive to her that morning, “heavy.” So she smudged the store to clear the

Expect the expected

“So the cashier at Burger King is about to hand you your food, and you’re expecting her to tell you, ‘Have a nice day,’ and so you’re already thinking, ‘You, too,’ but instead she says, ‘Enjoy Your Meal.’ And you say, ‘You, too.’” Brian Regan has built himself into one

Focus on Jim

Jim Campbell’s show at the Museum of Glass has me stumped. I don’t possess the kind of scientific brain it must take to fully understand or appreciate his message or methods. But I do find the work fascinating. Campbell is an engineer, inventor and video artist. He worked on Francis Ford

Bryant Speer, Brian Woobank, and lots of hair

When Salon Benjamin gets involved in doing the hair for the fashion show thrown by Red Line Style at Syren Lounge Saturday, March 31, there may be some tufts of brightness to see — courtesy of some extension magic.  Bryan Woobank, whose goal is to see Federal Way turn to

Quality shows this week

Thursday COUNTRY kari ehli “American Idol” runners-up piss me off.  They are so pompous and self-absorbed. I can’t stand the fact that the majority of them haven’t paid any dues and suddenly they are stars.  However, if I had to pick the next “American Idol” it would probably be Lakewood’s own Kari

Friday, Dec. 13: The Spider Ferns

The Spider Ferns are a duo that aim to hypnotize. Made up largely of just electric guitar and bass, with no drums, there is very little to prevent you from getting lulled into their bubbling tones. Without percussion, the sounds tend to just wash over you, lively though they may

Saturday, Dec. 14: Purr Gato

If you could say one thing about Purr Gato, it's that they certainly aren't into half measures. Performing absurd, space-age get-ups and brightly colored wigs, Purr Gato embrace the spectacle of performance. Lead singer Kitty K rocks a honest-to-goodness keytar, if that gives you a good idea of what to

"This movie's gay." How many times have you heard artistically lacking films described as such? I'm guilty of it. In my misspent teenage years, I don't recall another word in my vocabulary that served so frequently as the catchall descriptor for various media that I didn't like, but I'm better

Saturday, Dec. 14: Modern Kin

Working my way through Modern Kin's self-titled debut, the word that kept swimming around in my head was "skeletal." Though the songs are adorned with expansive reverb, what you really pick out and identify are the three people behind the songs: Drew Grow, Kris Doty and Jeremiah Hayden. Even though
