Friday, March 9: Destruction Island

Destruction Island makes big sounds and big hooks with their guitars, but the band persists in being betrayed by small sound. As much as Destruction Island puffs out its chests with these arena sounds, the band always cheat a look of uncertain modesty - like a plunky piano line or

Friday, March 9: Science!

We Recommend

Friday, March 9: Science!

The finger-plucking beauty and ease of Science!'s folksy, acoustic, storytelling is easy on the ear. Voted "Best New Band" in the Volcano's Best of Olympia 2012 Readers Poll, Science! has a rootsy vibe that goes a long way in a town like Oly. Comprised of vocalist Justin Stang and guitarist

Friday, March 9: Too Slim and the Taildraggers

Take the modern alt-country blues sound of Drive-By Truckers, throw in the fun loving attitude and riff-blues-rock of ZZ Top, mix them all together and you get close to the vibe of Too Slim and the Taildraggers. This is real, down and dirty rock and roll - a delightful jumble

Saturday, March 10: Sound Icons

All right, so here's a thing that's happening: Saturday, an assemblage of Tacoma's most stylish bands will convene in one place, play music and have photographs taken of themselves in starkly fashionable rock 'n roll clothing, and you will be there to bask in all the ridiculous, trendsetting-ness of it

Tacomans who have taken comforts for granted are losing their jobs, their homes, their medical care and their carefully cultivated security.

Thrilla in Oly

It’s like a 15 round fight, and we’ve got to be getting near round 11 or 12. For what seems like forever, Olympia and its impassioned residents have been going back and forth over the fight for the “isthmus” — which in reality is just the small patch of land

Billy Ray Cyrus and all-mail voting

The text message came in frantic, and at first I didn’t understand it. “Dude, sit down. Billy Ray Cyrus has a womb broom,” it read. A day later when I got to work, the sender — Weekly Volcano staff writer Michael Swan — cleared things up. “Billy Ray Cyrus has a womb broom,

Saturday, March 10: Atomic Outlaws

Nothing fancy is at play here, just straightforward, riff-heavy RAWK with a little eyeliner around the edges. The Atomic Outlaws have been rock workhorses since the band's inception in 2007. As time has passed, the band has experienced several lineup changes, including shuffling through three lead singers, but the mission
