Wooden Lip Service: The Jilly Rizzo, Death By Stars and Foothills Got Talent?

In the helter-skelter of the modern world, sometimes Bobble Tiki needs nothing so much as the chance to retire inside, close the bamboo shutters and take a break. But Bobble Tiki is the nervous sort, cursed with the inability to just sit and daydream. For some reason, and in less than

Blowing your own glass

A smart man once told me that one should never pass up the opportunities to do the strange and unexpected. "It is the strange things that we all regret not doing," he said, in an aged and stoic voice, "and if you ever have the opportunity to do something out of

The Rockford Files: Red Hex to tour Europe

My first encounter with Red Hex's singer/guitarist Sam Olsen was at his home while he tested out his recently acquired reverb tank. I use the word "tested" loosely. The test consisted of Olsen plugging in his Epiphone Sheraton and kicking the absolute hell out of the surprisingly resilient piece of

"Drawing Line into Form" at the Tacoma Art Museum

The latest exhibition at Tacoma Art Museum, "Drawing Line into Form: Works on Paper by Sculptors from the BNY Mellon Collection," explores the importance of drawing as a creative tool for sculptors. The drawings in this show go far beyond studies for sculptures. In fact, there are few actually studies in the

Best of gluten-free dining

  Many people are going gluten-free out of necessity or by choice, and local restaurants and bakeries are taking note by providing patrons with gluten-free menus and options worthy of praise. From sandwiches and burgers to pizza and cupcakes, these eateries are favorites among the gluten conscious for providing food that

Hannah Levin - Tacoma to today

If you've had your ear anywhere close to the heart of the Northwest music scene in the last 10-15 years, you've heard of Hannah Levin. You know she's a DJ for KEXP's Seek and Destroy and Audioasis, you've read her words in The Stranger, Seattle Weekly and City Arts, and

Swoon, Tacoma

I'll be the first to admit that the Tacoma music scene tends to work in waves, dipping down during certain lean periods, and overflowing with warmth and creativity during our fat periods. At this stage in Tacoma's continued march toward some vague future utopia of musical community, one entity that

The Fame Riot

Less than one year ago, I met Shazam "Tea Time" Watkins and Liz Scarlett, the faces of Tacoma electro-pop band THE FAME RIOT. When I first encountered the glamorous duo, it was coincidentally right before the release of their first single, "Heart Stray." Watkins told me about the track, and

What's The word?: Sonny Bonoho will represent the 253 at SXSW

Sonny Bonoho - one of the few Tacoma artists to break into the underground national hip-hop scene - has been busy preparing new material for this year's SXSW, which is in Austin, Texas March 12-17. I thought it would be a good idea to bring to light what Bonoho has
