Saturday, Jan. 21: Halcion Halo

It's hard to separate the music of Halcion Halo from the commanding voice that presides over it. Lead singer Jenson Charnell's voice can sometimes resemble the more mumbling, beat-poet-aspirations of Lou Reed - he never provides any release for the plodding, heavy alt-rock guitars, just ever-rising tension and downtrodden declarations.

Thursday, Jan. 26: The Black Swans

The Black Swans, in Olympia next Thursday for a show at Olympia's Guest House, is not the type of band that lifts you up with bouncy, hopeful energy. The Black Swans don't dabble in sunshine pop or carefree smiles without caveats. What the Black Swans do deal in - led

QUESTION: I'm a 33-year-old nurse in a five-month "friends with benefits" thing with a doctor co-worker. I am only 18 months out of an abusive 10-year relationship and wanted something fun and light. We get along well, but he rarely asks me ahead of time about getting together. I know

Saturday, Jan. 21: The Big Wheel Stunt Show

Funny thing happened along the way. Thanks to the evolution of popular music, a whole generation of current rockers became dated faster than at any previous point in history. These days, if it doesn't include a Pitbull sample, a Casio keyboard line or even the remote chance of "going viral,"

News Front

Ask Amy

Dun Juan I always recommend your column; however, I take issue with your slamming “Joe Spokes” for not directly asking out the girl in his bike group. Besides, only a fool would take a woman on a date and pay. It takes discipline, but if I invite a woman out, I

Thursday, Jan. 19 & Monday, Jan. 23: "The Great Infection of the Sea"

Capt. Charles Moore's presentation, "The Great Infection of the Sea," has nothing to do with that time Lindsey Lohan gave the entire Strait of Gibraltar Chlamydia (like you read about in US Weekly). Rather, Moore's presentation is actually of paramount importance, with the scientist and activist discussing his book, Plastic

Saturday, Jan. 21: Dockyard Derby Dames Opening Bout (Canceled)

UPDATE: Pierce College canceled the event due to power outage issues. Like an old friend returning from a lengthy retreat (read: court-ordered stay in rehab) the Dockyard Derby Dames cruise back into town this weekend, opening the club's sixth season in typical knockdown, drag-out fashion at Pierce College in Lakewood.

LOCAL BITE: Pearl Street Avocado Bomb

Thinly sliced "sheets" of ripe avocado form the outside of the Avocado Bomb at Flying Fish Sushi Bar & Grill on North Pearl Street in Tacoma. Inside, a mixture of chopped rice noodle, scallion and tempura battered shrimp is held together with spicy tuna so tender it resembles a paste.
