Proctor Art Walk

Want to get out, take a walk in the November rain (insert badass Guns N' Roses song here) and support some local artists? Sure, we all do. We're Northwesterners and we love both rain and art. Perhaps the perfect opportunity to merge these two great facets of Northwest life awaits

EDITOR'S NOTE: See, the thing is, drummer Geoff Reading - yes, of the band New American Shame - kinda sorta writes for the Volcano's Website on a regular basis. Like, he has a weekly column. With New American Shame set to reunite Sunday at Hell's Kitchen as part of the

There's much to admire in the Outfit Theatre Project's The Transylvanian Clockworks, a co-production with Tacoma Little Theatre. The cast, a virtual reunion of Theater Artists Olympia‘s Othello from earlier this year, labors mightily to invigorate Don Nigro's talky script; but, like a 160-pound vampire bat, it never quite gets

You know the saying, ‘Sometimes you can find what you're looking for right under your nose?" Well, clearly I've been finding my mouth just fine, based on my recent weight gain, but not in such a literal way, I finally really looked under my nose and discovered Sunshine Liquidators. I've been

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. ... If Bobble Tiki's roll at the Weekly Volcano was likened to baseball (which it never has been), Bobble Tiki would like to

Hands at 10 and 2

The characters in Paula Vogel's Pulitzer Prize-winning dramedy How I Learned to Drive are so multidimensional and real, it's shocking to learn the play isn't autobiographical. Vogel told PBS's NewsHour she wanted to approach "Lolita from Lolita's point of view," so yes, this is a play about pedophilia (and yes,
