The Rockford Files: Rocket Records Grand Re-opening

Several months ago you may have received somewhat of a scare at the sight of moving boxes outside Tacoma's Rocket Records. A mainstay of local vinyl geeks - myself included - Rocket Records has been on the corner of Sixth Avenue and Proctor Street since 2007. The disappearance of its

2013 Squeak and Squawk Music Festival to drop jaws

With a swagger and stage presence that is both unassuming and surprising, Carletta Sue Kay is a sight with broad shoulders, disheveled wig and gaudy gowns. But when this powerful singer grabs the mic, it's on. Randy Walker, aka Carletta Sue Kay, hails from San Francisco but is making his way

Get in on Strangely Alright's video shoot

We are all used to the fact that MTV no longer delights us with original, catchy music videos. Gone are the days of flipping on the tube and being entertained with both visual and auditory sensation that actually have class and creativity. But, musicians are evolving creatures and lucky for us,

Rakehell and Go Pills deliver Analog Resurgence

I had purchased vinyl when I was about 14 - Beck's Sea Change, Transatlanticism by Death Cab For Cutie, a really cool pink vinyl edition of The Flaming Lips' In a Priest Driven Ambulance - but I never quite went through the whole bin-digging experience when it came to finding

Visual Edge: "Natural History of the Surreal"

Otto Younger's sculptures in the Handforth Gallery spill out of the gallery space to inhabit sections of the entire gallery, first and second floor and even the windows above the main entrance. They are big, bold, hysterically funny and insightfully satirical. What Youngers has created is a parody of museum

Tacoma has Soul - with flair for Cuban and Puerto Rican cuisine

The Proctor District of Tacoma is now home to Soul, a Latin American and soul food restaurant, which opened mid-August. Housed in the former Old House Café, Soul is bringing a much-appreciated underrepresented cuisine in the area. It is not just for lunch and dinner, either. Locals will be happy

"Hollywood Who Done It" dinner and show

I was leery of reviewing Hollywood Who Done It, as I had the impression it was one of those "Mystery Nite" dinners. You know the kind: waiters circle the room and try to look interested while diners decide which of a cast of flamboyant characters killed oil baron Tex Arlington.

The Grand Suggests: "A Hijacking"

Are you a good negotiator?  Many people would likely rank their bargaining skills somewhere between "fair" and "excellent" if asked to make an honest assessment.

Special Forces S.O.C.O.M.

For Jason Mitchell, it's all about service and a mission, but perhaps not in the way you'd think. Sure, the 1st Special Forces Group (Airborne) Chief Warrant Officer 3, now in his second year serving at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, has served his country proudly for 17 years. Yet Mitchell is a

Wounded warriors in words

They say the truth can set you free, but sometimes it can also help you understand things are too hard to put into words. "I was watching the news during a layover in Germany after we'd brought wounded warriors to the hospital and was just stunned at how different it was
