Pop art packs a punch

The Roger Shimomura painting exhibition at Tacoma Art Museum mines the tradition of pop art and the history of Japanese-American relations to skewer prejudice and stereotype with painfully satirical paintings. Shimomura, an American artist living in Seattle, was born to a Japanese family shortly before the outbreak of World War II.

Raising the Deadbeat

An unfortunate thing that music fans in the South Sound have come to expect is for fun, new venues to bite the dust. Noise ordinances, safe-guards (damn those necessary sprinklers!), and generally obscene costs of upkeep tend to get the majority of new venues to bite the dust. This is

Thursdays: Swing of Things Social Dance

It's no secret that a typical Meat Market outing isn't for everybody. Let‘s face it, unless you enjoy tequila shots, club tracks and booty shorts, appropriate Meat Market recommendations can seem a tad ... sparse. But dammit, let it never again be uttered that the Meat Market let down those

A curious visitor dropped in on his local church to hear a Sunday sermon.  Later, a friend asked him how it had gone.  The visitor's reply:  "A preacher is a mild-mannered man, standing up in front of mild-mannered men, telling them they gotta be more mild-mannered."   A preacher like that

Through Feb. 6: "Frost/Nixon"

As you know if you've seen the erstwhile Opie's 2008 movie version, Frost/Nixon is Peter Morgan's dramatic distillation of David Frost's historic 1977 TV interviews with Tricky Dick, in which our 37th president finally admitted to being a nefarious crapsack.  As good as Michael Sheen and the Oscar-nominated Skeletor
