Gingerknoxx_16 PERMANENT LIPSTICK by Ginger Knoxx
Here's the truth. I've been to more barbecues, dinner at friends' houses and park picnics than shows, events or nightclubs. Does anyone really want to hear about that again? So, I will now offer you a fine listing of cool stuff to do and some of my mindless chatter.

  • This Thursday is Tacoma's Third Thursday Art Walk. Check this - Embellish Salon du Jour is hosting a bus ride around town. What better way than this is there to get your lazy behind around to all of the galleries staying open late to give a peek at T-town's massive variety of art? Don't miss the boat, er, bus. It's free, so show up at Embellish on St. Helen's Avenue at 5:30 p.m. sharp to tool around town with the lovelies and gents. Also this Thursday, check out the last SiteWorks show featuring dance companies, theatrical antics and spoken word by Luke Smiraldo at the Museum of Glass.
  • City Lights Billiards has expanded to the end of the block and will be devoting the whole area to live music. We're talking classic rock from the '50s, '60s and '70s. It won't be a small stage pushed in a corner either, but a large-scale sound system catering to bands on the weekends and an open mic night.
  • Urban Xchange is celebrating its one-year anniversary with a mash-up dance party held at Club Zoe on July 29. DJ Colin of Seattle band Mercir spins. Woo-hoo! Dress to wow in runway fashion fury and heart-stopping couture. You know it's true.
  • Umber Sleeping is out on the road for a quick mini tour to Cali, but will be back for an Aug. 4 show at Hell's Kitchen. Speaking of the road, Broken Oars is also on a West Coast jaunt. Let's hope the engine issues in Oregon don't keep them from rocking stages with Nuetral Boy as planned. They'll be back on July 28 at Seattle's Jules Maes for a tear-down-the-walls birthday party for Sickboy Mike.
  • Do you love puppies, kitties and the rest of God's little creatures? Mark your calendar for Saturday, Aug. 5. The Dugan Foundation is putting on the first annual Woofstock at Cheney Stadium. There will be music all day from Dudley, The Degrees, In Lunar Blue, Modest Mouse side project The Vells and a super special big name headliner. Funds raised go to keeping homeless pets from taking the long sleep, so it's money well spent AND there's a beer garden (you lushes).
  • The Factory opens Aug. 11 in the space previously housed by The Brickyard out on South 56th Street and Washington. Think high-end sports bar with a dance floor and smokin' hot cocktail girls in sexy black outfits. Get your South End drink on for rock bands on Thursdays at their 73-foot long bar!
  • Wanna be in the Guinness Book of Records for playing the national anthem of rock 'n' roll, aka "Louie Louie," along with hundreds and hundreds of your closest friends? Yes, the 1,000 Guitars event is back again on Aug. 19 for LouieFest '06 at Sprinker Recreation Center in Spanaway. Register at John L. Scott Realtors on Sixth Avenue and they will pay half of your registration fee. Nice.

Give me a wink and a kiss here.  Knoxx knows.
