Dillinger uncensored

The Woolly Bandits

Bottle rockets, beer and lost fingers

If you don’t like setting off fireworks on the Fourth of July — your own fireworks, explosives you spent your own hard earned money to purchase — then you’re a terrorist. There. Someone (me) finally had the stones to say it. Simply put: Safe and sane has ruined the Fourth of July.

Sunday, Feb. 12: Rich Wetzel & The Groovin' Higher Orchestra

So, when he proclaims Sunday's performance at Stonegate Pizza as "the Super Bowl of live entertainment," we shouldn't be surprised. Does this mean we should expect four-plus hours

Deadwood Revival

VOLUNTEERS Thursday, July 2 Something tells me Volunteers is going to go over well in Tacoma.

Grandpa’s Fourth

Some people like to celebrate the Fourth drinking a case of Pabst Blue Ribbon, munching a bag of pork rinds and getting a tattoo of the American Flag on their nether regions. But if drunken debauchery and in-your-face patriotism seem a little too much for you, check out Old Fashioned
