Tuesdays: Boozeday

Nightlife It List

Tuesdays: Boozeday

No need for a catchy title here. The U.P. Station Bar and Grill actually calls Tuesday their Tuesday Boozeday. And we here at the Volcano love a bar with the cojones to call it like it is.  Coors Light pitchers are $7 and Jäger shots are $5 anyway you want

Thursdays: Ladies Night

Nightlife It List

Thursdays: Ladies Night

Casinos aren't usually the spot to meet ... you know ... "the one." The smoke, the dark card rooms and the loss of copious amounts of money don't exactly scream aphrodisiac. But at Freddie's Club Casino in Fife, Thursday nights just upped the ante. Every Thursday night is ladies night

Rhubarb Days in Sumner

Summer in the Northwest is all about festivals that take advantage of the long, warm days. Some are large and some are smaller, but all are a great way to get in touch with the region and enjoy some time outside. A great family festival taking place this weekend is

We Recommend

Thursday, Jan. 13: Zael Zura

There's something about a true troubadour - a road-tattered, singer-songwriter that's so basic it almost seems like a necessity. Originally from Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, and complete with the country, rhythm and blues and indie-acoustic leanings you'd expect, Zael Zura is just such a performer. And we're not the only ones

Anthony's at Pt. Defiance

There is no shortage of good seafood in the South Sound, but finding quality, fresh seafood at an affordable price is another story altogether.  Anthony's at Pt. Defiance in Tacoma offers a casual atmosphere with great seafood options next door to the ferry terminal and popular Owen's beach.  Complete with

Thursday, Jan. 13: Liz Janes

Liz Janes' new album for Asthmatic Kitty, Say Goodbye, is pretty close to flawless. Regardless of whether or not her Starbucks-friendly instincts tickle your earholes, it's hard to deny that her voice is gorgeous and supple, her lyrics insightful (even when they're talking about pixels - seriously! - as

Sunday, Jan. 9: Wolves In The Throne Room

Like a crow that is dark, intelligent and resourceful - schooling its children in the ways of life, so do Wolves in the Throne Room school their listeners in the ways of earthy black metal. Sometimes ambient, sometimes thunderous, always with radical environmentalism in mind, Wolves will remind you of

Saturday, Jan. 8: The Buddha Magoo

Here, my dear reader, is what I have been able to determine about the Buddha Magoo via harried research of what little exists in reference to the band: (1) they have a silly name, (2) they are a supergroup of Olympia experimental folk veterans with a purported 175 years of

Thursday, Jan. 6: Sordid Sentinels

Sordid Sentinels play rock music, plain and simple. They are upfront about it. They're not reinventing the wheel, nor do they intend to. What they mean to accomplish is to perform good, soul-nourishing rock music, and they accomplish it quite nicely. They pride themselves on delivering

Novel approach

The way in which music enthusiasts relate to music has changed remarkably in the Internet age. As I've spoken about before (and will keep speaking about until I can wrap my head around it), the idea of an indisputable subgenre has become irresistible to music bloggers and fans alike -

Battle continues

Music

Battle continues

Last July, the Viaduct - one of Tacoma's few remaining all-ages venues - shuttered, leaving a crucial void in the local music scene. Spots like The Den still host teen-friendly gigs, but the options for the area's underage crowd are especially anemic nowadays, even by Tacoma's standards. Jeremy Bushnell, who had

Food Truck Fest

Food Truck Fest

Some of the area's best food is no longer in brick and mortar buildings, but instead congregate on wheels at festival spaces around the country.  The South Sound is no exception - there are a few food truck fests planned, including this weekend at Wright Park in Tacoma. Metro Parks Tacoma

Southwest Washington Juried Exhibition at South Puget Sound Community College

The Southwest Washington Juried Exhibition at South Puget Sound Community College is better than your average juried exhibition. It's such a stellar collection of regional artists that I should be able to list the names and leave it at that, and readers would rush to see it. There are a lot

Sunday, Jan. 9: Tacoma Cult Movie Club

There's a reason the Tacoma Cult Movie Club speaks to you - it's because you're human, and you're not embarrassed to admit it. Goddamnit, you love beer, popcorn and long-lost movies about hot slutty chicks in prison! Furthermore, you love the Acme Grub Cage, because your friends think you're a

Friday, Jan. 7-Sunday, Jan. 9: Clinton Jackson

The Tacoma Comedy Club is off and running with a full head of steam, drawing national touring comics to the Gritty City on an almost weekly basis. Hell, the club even booked Skippy from Family Ties. This week, Clinton Jackson will be holed up, doling out the laughs to anyone

Sunday, Jan. 9: Peking Acrobats

Unless you're completely dead on the inside, there should still be a bit of childlike wonderment that comes from seeing someone do something remarkable. The Peking Acrobats from China - a skilled touring troupe of jugglers, gymnasts, cyclists and tumblers - have the ability to instill such wonderment - and

Unique museums

You know those road movies where the characters stop to see some colorful attraction - something like the world's largest ball of string or maybe Graceland? While such scenes typically seem to be set in the South (Barney Smith's Toilet Seat Art Museum in San Antonio, Texas, for instance) or perhaps

Through March 24: Photographer Jared Abwawo

Jared Abwawo is both a math teacher and an artist - a photographer, to be exact. There's a certain precision in his art that would suggest as much. "The creative essence of the image has no language but its own. It is a communication from one human being to others,"

Saturday, Jan. 8: "The Wizard Of Oz"

The Wizard of Oz has achieved classic status, from the 1939 MGM film to everything it has inspired. On Saturday Olympia will get two chances to catch the National Tour of The Wizard of Oz at the Washington Center for the Performing Arts. "Breathtaking special effects" are promised, as are

Friday, Jan. 7: Elvis Birthday Bash

In Olympia, the King's birthday has become synonymous with one man: Robert Washington - one of the world's top Elvis impersonators (see the film Almost Elvis) ... and a guy who just happens to be black. To some this is controversial. To Washington, it's simply his calling. "I don't really
