FRIDAY, JULY 25 2014 >>>

1. Campfire Cassettes was started by Jonathan Buchanan as a way of getting pesky songs out of his head. Sometimes he performs with a full band, but the tour he's on finds him performing solo, with an assist from his tourmate, Todd N Todd (AKA Todd Daniels). The first song on the Los Angeles-based Campfire Cassettes' upcoming LP, GOSLEBROCK, features this line: "My sister Mary got everything. She got a brand new horse when she was 17. My sister Mary got everything. When I was 17, I got an STD." It's this sort of downer self-deprecation and outer bitterness that defines Campfire Cassettes It'd be depressing if it weren't so hilarious. Read Rev. Adam McKinney's full feature on Campfire Cassettes in the Music and Culture section, then catch Buchanan and Daniels at 6 p.m. in Le Voyeur.

2. Heritage Distilling Company has just announced the release of their Batch No 12 line of spirits. Batch 12 will include a vodka, bourbon and rye whisky all produced and bottled at its Gig Harbor site. The salivating, booze-loving public can get their first sip at noon in the Tahoma Market in Fife. The first to buy two bottles will receive a T-shirt. The week following expect to see them pop up at Harbor Greens, IGA stores and other outlets.

3. Over the years, the Weekly Volcano has heard tales of an inexplicable summertime condition.  When the sun is shining, we're told, some people lose their appetites. They all have some ridiculous excuse. Some refuse to sweat and eat at the same time. Sissies. Others say they're too busy. Whatever. Still others pull out the old "it's swimsuit season" excuse. Foolish vanity. The best we can figure is that they all have heatstroke and aren't quite right in the head. After experimenting, we have reached an indisputable scientific conclusion - When the sun is shining, things just taste better. Prove our theory at the Friday at the Fort event inside the Fort Nisqually Living History Museum's fence from 6-9:30 p.m. Pampeana will serve their delicious empanadas, 7 Seas Brewing will be pouring pints full of goodness, Mikey's Weiner Trap hopefully means gourmet hot dogs, The Blend Café has the dessert tray while The Shy Boys rock your favorite hits.

4. Jeff Angell takes a night off from fronting the acclaimed Walking Papers band for a show with his other band, the soulful rock band The Missionary Position, for an 8 p.m. show with True Holland at Jazzbones.

5. Steel Creek American Whiskey Company hosts a Camo Party tonight. It's free cover before 11 p.m. for those who dress in camo gear. Also, $500 in cash and prizes will be awarded for the best male and female camo outfits at midnight. That's all the information we can find about the party tonight at the downtown Tacoma country bar. The remaining information seems to be hidden.

FRIDAY AT THE FORT, 6-9:30 p.m., Fort Nisqually Living History Museum, 6-9 Point Defiance Park, 5400 N. Pearl St., Tacoma, $10-$12, FridayAtTheFort.org
