BROADWAY TACOMA FARMERS MARKET OPENS Thursday (yes, Cinco de Mayo!) from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. (yes, new hours!) the Tacoma Farmers Market invites all cabelleros and senoritas to experience the fine wears of the land, and the natural abilities of camaraderie and free spirits. Support the local farmers and eat

Rise and shine

While it would be unfair to call Tacoma's underage music scene comatose, there seems to be no shortage of locals who think it needs a good shot in the arm. Among them are Shayne Weeks and Sam Olsen, two young, doggedly creative musicians spearheading the Coma Collective, an arts contingent in

Free stuff and stormtroopers

What's the best way to get people excited about something? Free stuff. Check that. Free stuff and Imperial stormtroopers. When the number one goal of the free stuff is the promotion of literacy in children, teens and adults, it's a win for everybody. Thus, on the first Saturday of every May since 2002,

Films from scratch

Until last year, I had competed in every Tacoma 72-Hour Film Competition since the competition's meager beginnings with 11 teams in 2005. I watched it grow over the years, and become more and more of a "thing" - until my shameful outing in 2010 when I failed to complete my

Sweet dreams

Sweet dreams

Always, Patsy Cline is a musical for people that love music but are not particularly fond of musicals. It's more like a concert with a play interspersed between the songs. The story is about the beginning of the six-year friendship between country star Patsy Cline and Louise Seger.Walking into Tacoma

Tug of war

Music

Tug of war

In a somewhat counter-intuitive way, collaborating with another artist is a bold act of confidence. One might think relinquishing some control to another person is a way of hedging bets, but it's quite the opposite. To collaborate is to say, "I am sure enough of my voice and my ability

Sweet abstractions

Sweet abstractions

Drink in a little art with your coffee at Amocat Cafe, where throughout the month of May you can view paintings by Angela Wales Rockett. Rockett's paintings are richly colored and expressively textured but very subdued abstractions inspired by landscape minus any overt references to land or water - with

Summertime (and the eating is easy)

Days of sunshine all but demand lounging outdoors; harboring thoughts of roasted ears of corn, backyard grilling and hand-patted burgers smothered in melted cheese becomes commonplace. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, summer is fast approaching, and with it comes the all-American pastime of eating and drinking in the sun. From sidewalk seating,

WHAT'S THE WORD?: "420 Experienced"

He's back. Only one MC from Tacoma has gotten big enough to where those two words mean anything. Not that he ever left us. The MC I speak of has consistently been opening for the biggest national acts that hit Sea-Tac. He's one of the few Tacoma MCs who get good looks

CRITICS' PICKS: Slushy, Vacant Fever, Tim Reynolds Trio, Aces Up

SLUSHY >>> Friday, May 6 Slushy, featuring Shayne Weeks of the once-again-on-hiatus Makeup Monsters, shares similar sensibilities with the latter. But the light touch that both bands share is given a slightly harder edge with Slushy, as heavier riffs and distortion are layered over that bratty pop-punk. The sound feels somehow fuller

Food Matters

BITE US: Mother's Day

During the Great Depression, a gift of meat or other scarce food items was treasured, loosely translated as "I love you" or "You're very important to me." Mothers prepare countless meals in their lifetimes, yet nothing tastes better than food made by the hands of someone else. Going out to
