MONDAY, OCT. 20 2014 >>>

1. A funnel-shaped cloud touched down near Anderson Island shortly after noon Oct. 11, which prompted the National Weather Service to issue an emergency tornado warning for Pierce County. A golfer at The Home Course in DuPont cursed the rotating black cloud, yelling, "Why would you ruin the best game of my life?!" The same day, just before midnight, a small earthquake rattled Thurston County. The U.S. Geological Survey says the magnitude 3.5 temblor was centered about 8 miles northeast of Olympia. Rick Hopkins, a Pierce County building official, will discuss steps to reduce an earthquake hazard to your home - including bolt and plate installation - at the Summit Pierce County Library at 6:30 p.m. This lecture just might be worth skipping the game.

2. A true instrumentalist, Jessica Lurie is an expert saxophone player, accordion player, and vocalist, accounting for the tremendous amount of praise she receives in the jazz community. The New Yorker is a real "jack of all trades" when it comes to her genre, and along with the Megaphone Heart Band, throws a complex melody over a backing beat that results in multi-genre jams from rock ‘n' roll to salsa. The diverse group will create a musical gumbo of worldly tones at 8 p.m. inside Rhythm and Rye in downtown Olympia.

3. If you're interested in exploring the outer edges of Tacoma, the Thunderbird Lounge offers a different flavor than other karaoke joints. Being that it's connected to a cigar lounge, you are allowed to smoke inside at the Thunderbird. It's a fairly standard blue collar dive bar, otherwise, with a steady stream of regulars and a surprisingly good song selection beginning at 9 p.m.

4. Rockaraoke at Jazzbones will either be your novel opportunity to act as frontman, or be completely intimidating. Perpetually packed with people, Rockaraoke boasts a unique twist for karaoke in Tacoma: instead of a backing track, you get a three-piece band playing behind you. Check it out at 9 p.m.

5. Aquaculture is three slanky guys from Shelton playing the sounds your brain asks you for. Check out the sonic madness with LA's Crime Rock at 10 p.m. in Le Voyeur.
