LIVE MUSIC SATURDAY, FEB. 22 IN THE SOUTH SOUND >>>

4th Ave Ale House Olympia - Downtown. Speakerbox, Mr. Von, Bishop Bishop, D-Logic. 9 pm. $5.

B Sharp Coffee House Tacoma - Downtown. The Kareem Kandi Band. All Ages. 8pm to 11pm. free.

Doyle's Public House Tacoma - Stadium District. Velocity. 9 pm. NC.

  • Here comes one of the best, a dude who gets more lyrical and fierce with each passing year. While I enjoy Cliff Colon's stark beauty tenor saxophone paired with singer/wife Sommer Stockinger, and his furious face-offs with fellow saxman Kareem Kandi, it's when he frosts the fusion and Latin funk that I completely lose it. Such will be the case Saturday when he and Velocity cram into Doyle's corner. With Peter Adams on keys, Rob Hutchinson on bass, Brian Smith on drums, this band knows how to keep lots of balls in the air at once. I don't need to tell you about the advantages of a small venue, right? - Ron Swarner

Jazzbones Tacoma - Sixth Avenue. Ben Union, The Breaklites, James Redfern. 8 pm. $8.

Louie G's Pizza Fife. Above Ground, Darklight, Ashes Of Eden, Seventh Silence. All Ages. 8 pm.

McCoy's Tavern Olympia - Downtown. Angie and the Car Wrecks, The Load Levelers, The Assassinators. 10 pm.

  • I love my music-writing gig. I can choose to preview any show I want. There isn't a scene I'm attached to. I'm not stuck with dreadlocks or a mohawk or a cowboy hat or a fedora or a trucker cap. I can listen to whatever I want, whatever the mood, and I can write about it with sincerity. That being said, this week's mood is fucking punk rock. And the band I'm previewing - Angie and the Car Wrecks - is talented, with pulsing and grinding and gnarly lead female vocals. It's speedy and tight, gets you in the gut and revs your engine. Punkabilly might describe them, but so does psychobilly, blues, country and metal, a nice hybrid if you ask me. Please, go and see Angie and the Car Wrecks live. Your primal parts will thank you.

The Olympia Center Olympia - Downtown. Vagabond Opera, punk accordionist Jason Webley and aerialist Sara Sparrow. 9 pm. $10-$15.

Rock N Roll Lodge Tacoma - Eastside. Art Alexakis, True Holland, Demure and Jimmy Nuge of the Fail Safe Project. 8 pm. $20.

The Spar Tacoma - Old Town. Red. 8 pm.

Traditions Cafe and World Folk Art Olympia - Downtown. Jamie Laval, with Dan Compton. All Ages. 8 pm. $12-$20.

Uncle Sam's American Bar & Grill Spanaway. ABATE Soup Competition, with Justic Creek Southern Rock Band. 9 pm.
