So Long, Little Holland

First the housing market, then Wall Street, then Detroit, and now this.  The Little Holland Drive In?  When will it end?The inevitable, sadly, has proved inescapable: on July 25, Tacoma’s best classic burger stand stood down.   For years the tiny mom-and-pop restaurant defied the odds, going head to head with

  Readers pick The New Frontier Lounge as best new venue Perhaps Weekly Volcano scribe Mark Thomas Deming put it best:   “Remember that gaping hole in the Tacoma live music scene?

I begin my recommendations of art shows for the New Year with a reminder of a couple of ongoing shows at Tacoma Art Museum and Museum of Glass. The Movement of Impressionism: Europe, America, and the Northwest continues at TAM. The exhibition features artwork by many well-known French impressionists including

SLOUCHING TOWARD UTOPIA: Do it every day

First Night. It happens all over the country, including our fair city. At the heart of the tradition is a spirit of celebration without the assistance of a bottle of vodka, beer or wine. Or weed. Or speed. Or spray paint in a plastic bag. It’s a strange idea —

BITE US: The Greener Bean, burger at Alfred's

  The Greener Bean We in the South Sound region are fortunate. Restaurants, ones that aren’t afraid to pump serious money into their build-outs and staffing, are still opening in our area, despite the nasty economy. In the past couple of months, Sushi Spin in Puyallup, Vanilla Bean Café in Tacoma, Russian

Kasmir, Q Dot, Xylophones, 7 On 7

<h3>KASHMIR</h3>Thursday, Dec. 31If the Mark Wahlberg flick Rock Star taught us anything — besides the fact that men really shouldn’t wear leather pants — it’s that there’s a contentious difference between cover bands (who play everybody’s hits) and tribute bands (who stick with one artist or group). Wahlberg’s character was

TIKI LOGIC: New Year's Eve '80s style

After the holiday Bobble Tiki gave the scale in his bathroom an extra five pounds to weigh. The pants in Bobble Tiki's closet were given new companions. These new additions to his wardrobe were given a name: "Fatty Pants." Bobble Tiki's stomach was given a new place to hang out.

Glam gets right

I've struggled over the years with glam rock. Accepting its basic concept has been hard - as a genre, it flies in the face of the importance we music snobs put on credibility. It's somehow reassuring to know that 50 Cent really did get shot, or that Isaac Brock learned

Rocking out with your kids

Kids and concerts. Two words you don't normally hear in the same sentence. When I think of concerts, I think loud, crazy and fun. When I think of kids, I think the same thing. So why aren't these two things combined more often?I remember the days of carefree concerts. Going

SLOUCHING TOWARD UTOPIA: Sick of Christmas

I’m sick of Christmas — not because I hate holy days. Not because I’ve succumbed to the stupid, reactionary cynicism that seems to accompany standard anti-Christmas rants.
