Rockin' the Cradle


The-Den In this week's Volcano Lauren Napier takes a look at the Den at urbanXchange. If you have yet to hear, Napier debuted a new all ages column last week, Rockin the Cradle.

It freakin' rules.

Tonight, PWRFL POWER will play the Den. To see what Lauren had to say about the joint in this week's paper, click here.

The Den at urbanXchange


Phil Elverum Holy shit this will be a good show. No joke. As far as indie rock wet dreams go, the four bands (musicians) set to play the newest (and coolest) all-ages venue in Tacoma â€" the Den at urbanXchange â€" are enough to induce an awful lot of stickiness. Forgive the graphic nature of my gushing, but Phil Elverum’s Mount Eerie, Calvin Johnson’s monotone croon, Karl Blau’s folksy exploration and the melodic thrashing of Kusikia (even though they moved to Portland from Tacoma) are more than enough to make blood surge to certain parts of my nether region.

New all ages column premieres today


Lauren-Napier-for-Spew Look, we all know kids are important. 

I've heard, actually, that the children are our future. I've heard we need to teach them well and let them lead the way. We need to show them all the beauty they posses inside, and give them a sense of pride to make it easier. I've heard we should let the children's laughter remind us how we used to be.

But beyond all that happy horse shit, we also need to support the all ages music scene. If Whitney wasn't smoking crack out of a pipe she fashioned from an old Grammy, I'm sure she'd agree.

This being the case, the Weekly Volcano is proud to announce the debut of Lauren Napier's (pictured above) "Rockin' the Cradle" column, which will provide an intimate glimpse into the all ages world of the South Sound every week.
