First impressions

Do you remember your first trip to Tacoma? Your impressions? The sensation in your gut? The things you saw and the way this place made you feel? Blinded by the Hilltop hysteria of the time, of course, I remember my first trip to Tacoma. There was the Aroma, naturally, and also

Film critics are, most importantly, consumer advocates:  You only have so much entertainment cash, so spend it on this movie, not on that one.  Theatre critics attempt to fill the same role, but we know it's only useful to a point.  That's because theatre is gloriously inconsistent.  What flopped opening

WEDNESDAY READING: Part three of Zakk Wylde in Japan

To Mike Squires, Zakk Wylde is a true guitar hero - as much as any living player. This was Mike's first trip to Japan, and he had only been playing in Loaded for a few months - there hadn't been an abundance of run-ins with the likes of a Zakk

BITE US: Zocalo coming soon

The corner of South 38th and South G streets has been home to many businesses over the years; the most recent past saw a Philly sandwich shop. Signs on the windows now promise Zocalo Mexican Restaurant and Bakery will be the next inhabitant. Yes, a Mexican bakery. Will that mean pan

I drive through Hilltop Tacoma quite frequently in order to visit some of my favorite haunts like The Tempest and 1022 South, not to mention it's the only good direct route to downtown from my house, and often while heading down South 11th and crossing MLK, my eye would catch

HIP-HOP IN THE 25360: the return of Gabriel Teodros

One of the last MCs with soul had planned on spending most of the beginning of this year in the motherland, Africa, for a life journey, performances and more life learning. However, while in England, Gabriel Teodros' plans were thwarted by the British government who denied him passage from Europe

Self-deprecating musical

Dirty. Well, there was a little vulgarity. Rotten. Actually, the opposite. Scoundrels. That's what everyone came to see. Theatre Northwest's production of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, based on the movie, was a laugh out loud musical. Yes, a musical - AND funny. On purpose.  The production can be broken down into several categories: script (including

Aces Up, Ten Miles Of Bad Road

I have pondered and considered, and I have determined that what this city needs - OK, one thing of many that this city needs - is more bitchin'-ass slide guitarists. Bitchin'-ass. It's a technical term. It means "bitchin'-ass." I came to this realization Saturday night watching Ten Miles Of Bad Road

When it came time to choose an album for this review, Freeway and Jake One's new effort seemed to be a no-brainer, based on album art alone (the CD case is stylized as a wallet, the liner notes as a roll of cash).  With album art on my mind, though,

HIP-HOP IN THE 25360: Zulu Nation Anniversary

I will say this much... Seattle is quickly - and I mean with a quickness - becoming a model of how to do things right in the Hip-Hop community.  Of course this is a blanket statement and does not apply to each and every Seattleite, but it speaks to the

BITE US: Thrill of the Grill

At 5:20 p.m. I'm on my way home from a difficult day at work. Being the obsessed foodie I am, I naturally turn to food for comfort. Dave and wife Anita opened Thrill of the Grill, a cheerful, updated 1950s-style burger joint on Tacoma Avenue, last November. They began serving breakfast this

A snapshot of history

What a welcome difference a decade can make.  When Stop Kiss debuted at New York's Joseph Papp Public Theater in 1998, CurtainUp praised it as "thoroughly modern."  Only half a generation later, it strikes me as almost thoroughly dated, a grim reminder of a more homophobic time.  Stage artists

Great Waves is an awfully grandiose name for a young band - a band that, indeed, is young enough to compete in this year's EMP Sound Off! competition. Reflecting the grandiose name, Great Waves give titles to their songs like "The Moon and the Gutter" and "Konza Plains." In turn,

WATCH IT SPARKLE Thursday, Feb. 18 Seattle's Watch It Sparkle is a goddamn mess. Seriously. A sweaty, slurry, falling down, down-and-out mess. And it's beautiful. Low-fi garage punk the way it was meant to be - with equal parts piss, vigor and relentlessness - the band is releasing a 7-inch and
