RED HEX >>> Saturday, Jan. 30 Last week, at least if you read the Volcano, you learned about Tacoma's Apache Chief - a troupe of SOTA sludge rockers poised to melt off EMP Sound Off!'s face later this month at the annual under-age music competition. Apache Chief is part of a stable

TIKI LOGIC: Weekly Volcano Music Issue bonus

It's a new week, which means it's time for a new installment of Bobble Tiki's South Sound music news and notes column. Without further ado, let's get rolling. Last week, as readers may or may not recall, Bobble Tiki was aflutter with excitement over the Weekly Volcano's new Web site -

Going meta lo-fi

  Wheelies write pop songs, to be sure, but they're just a little mixed up - a little upside-down or inside-out, sounding as if they were recorded on the wrong end of an intercom. Or maybe sounding worn and yellowed like a long-lost mix-tape. The hooks are jagged and nervy even

Back in August the Weekly Volcano helped introduce you to The Color of East - a self described "psychedelic-garage-pop power trio" made up of Vinny Beatty and Eric Crozier, the formidable former rhythm section of Never Quiet Never Still, and new-to-the-scene frontman Patrick Smyth, a leader equally capable of channeling

The importance of family

"You look hungry. I'll fix you a sandwich. It's no trouble." Everyone's either got, knows or wishes for a grandma like this. Grandparents are wonderful; just ask character Caitlain O'Hare in Over the River and Through the Woods, a play that aims for the heartstrings with a story that sees main

BITE US: Dim sum class, Mama's Kicthen

DIM SUM IN OLYMPIA Chinese brunch may be the best brunch of all, at least that's what goes through my mind every time I visit Kirin Seafood Restaurant in downtown Vancouver, B.C. Hell, there's at least 25 dim sum joints up there - all with carts full of baskets and

I didn't have to go back there. I never wanted to. There's never been a reason until now, so I did. For you I make this sacrifice.   As I have said before, most visit a grocery store because of its proximity to home or work. I am no different. Back

Coffee and music

For those of us who love coffee and enjoy good music there's no reason to keep these two beautiful things apart. Luckily, we possess coffee shops in Tacoma that regularly put on open mic nights and full performances of varied artists. To name but a few establishments, the Mandolin Café,

The Makedonians

Have you ever sat in a bar, by yourself, and watched a large group of friends show up, slowly, for a night out? First, one guy shows up, walks to the other side of the room and sits down at a table way too big for him. Then, one

Fruits of anarchy

My childhood is a hazy mystery to me. Lately, I've started to suspect I might have brain damage, but that's beside the point. One unifying thread that runs through my whole life, however, is the presence of a fake radio program that's planted itself in my brain and reminds me

New school

It was fucking miserable outside - quintessential Tacoma. Gray. Cold. Wet. And depressed. 8:55 a.m. As I waited in the alley (technically South Court D Street) near the downtown Tacoma YMCA - between Market Street and Fawcett Avenue, close to South 13th Street - a woman stared back at me

Inside outsider

Steven Suski's paintings in his solo exhibition at South Puget Sound Community College have the look of outsider art. Outsider is a label generally applied to self-taught and/or mentally ill artists. To the best of my knowledge, Suski is not mentally ill, and I don't know what kind of training

Welcome to the '90s

Sometimes I'll say that music - as it exists and moves forward in society - is cyclical in nature. I try to catch myself when that happens, because, of course, music is not cyclical. In my mind, it looks more like a loop-the-loop. It moves in a straight line but,
