5 Things To Do Today: Old school R&B night, downtown meetup, trivia for dorks, Sabrina Chap and more ...

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 24 2013 >>>

1. Slip on your Cleopatra Jones afro or your dad's toupee and slide on over to The Brotherhood Lounge for a night of old school R&B, funk and soul with DJs Whistle Punk and Paul Shrug. Beginning at 8 p.m. the Broho will be full of rubbery grooves, slick licks and hi-tech keys caked in stardust. Expect booty-shakers, heart-breakers, spinal-cord-manipulators and epidermis-manglers in the form of rare and popular selections from the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s and, wait for it, 1980s. It's gonna be more fun than selling fake insurance on closeout cell phones at a mid-mall kiosk.

2. Downtown Tacoma residents are encouraged to gather at 7 p.m. inside The Social Bar and Grill to celebrate their urbaness. It's a chance for condo and apartment dwellers to meet their neighbors and hug it out over street projects, parking issues, light rail schedules and new crepe businesses. Expect door prizes and good conversation.

3. In 2011, Weekly Volcano readers voted the Top of Tacoma Bar and Cafe the best bar in Tacoma. This was due in no small part to their well drink Wednesdays. Two dollar well drinks after 7 p.m. Are you kidding? That's, like, riding the train to funkytown for only eight bucks. Yes, please. The kitchen stays open to midnight. Choo, choooo!

4. Held every Wednesday at 8 p.m., Trivia for Dorks is a free, all-ages affair at Dorky's Arcade in downtown Tacoma. Sure, the prizes are nice, but even better is dropping your win at your next round table D & D discussion.

5. When you build your act and your music around theatricality, you quickly realize after making a few recordings that there is eventually no place to go but bigger and bigger. More hooks, more color, more eccentricity. Sabrina Chap has backed herself against this wall, but she continues to imbue her music with as much flair as one can muster. She performs at 10 p.m. with Romanteek at Le Voyeur.

5 Things To Do Today: Cusses, Diversity Film Festival, John Keister and more ...

CUSSES: The band's live show is a juggernaut of high-energy. Photo courtesy of Facebook

TUESDAY, APRIL 16 2013 >>>

1. Receiving a lot of hype and mostly deserving it, Savannah's Cusses dual-twist punk angst/frenzy and down and dirty southern rock like rosy, freshly-pierce nipples. Born star Angel Bond belts it and struts like product of a Siouxsie Sioux/Karen O/Mick Jagger three-way. This is a festival band, folks. Their explosive, crushing riffs and powerful, fiery vocals will knock the New Frontier sign off the wall at 9 p.m. The real stunner will be when Bond kicks the sign hitting the kid with tight pants in the front row ... and he won't take his eyes off her for a second.

2. The Diversity Film Festival begins today at The Grand Cinema with each film a meditation on the theme of cultural diversity. The concept began a few miles (and years) away from The Grand, at Tacoma Community College. Dr. Scott Earle, a TCC English and Humanities instructor since 1999, along with fellow teachers and staff, has hosted on-campus film screenings of this sort for some time. A suggestion was made to Earle and his colleagues in late 2010 to graduate their young program - let it leave the classroom and test its wings in the community. Today at 2 and 6:15 p.m., the Grand will screen Mosquita y Mari, A coming of age story that focuses on a tender friendship between two young Chicanas.

3. If hearing the sound of your own cackling voice echoing off the walls of your shower stall has you craving the sound of something a bit more harmonious, check out the local songbirds and storytellers at Victory Music Open Mic from 7-10 p.m. inside the Antique Sandwich Co. It's guaranteed to be jam-packed with gorgeous sounds and humbling verses, as the South Sound's greatest up-and-coming acoustic musicians bare their souls impromptu-style.

4. We might not see the High Five'n White Guys or the Lame List, but a couple Almost Live! veterans will Billy Quan their way onto Tacoma Comedy Club's stage at 8 p.m. John Keister, who hosted and much of the writing the regional sketch comedy TV show from 1984 to 1999, will be joined by fellow "Almost Live!" star and well-known as a Seattle radio personality Pat Cashman, and Cashman's son, Chris, host of the game 1 vs. 100, for a "Gluten free evening of laughs and sneak previews of the TV show." The trio is producing The [206] - a new TV show shot in front of a live standing audience at Mighty Media Studios in a former fire station in Bellevue.

5. Two of our favorite Tuesday night trivia are at Fish Tale Brew Pub in Olympia and Farrelli's Wood-Fire Pizza in Tacoma, both start at 8 p.m. In terms of food, Farrelli's pies are hand-tossed, firm but chewy with a flop at the tip. The Jack & John Pizza - Italian sausage, Provolone/mozzarella blend, green and black olives, green onions, artichoke hearts, mushrooms - is so yum! At Fish Tale, go for the ham and Brie. Loaded with deli ham, smothered in nutty melted Brie and nestled between two slices of grilled sourdough, this one takes the trophy with the inclusion of sliced granny smith apples and mellow horseradish.

5 Things To Do Today: Mayor Strickland campaign kickoff, free garden workshop, aerialists in a bar and more ...

MAYOR MARILYN STRICKLAND: Under term limits she can serve a second term as mayor if elected this fall.

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 3 2013 >>>

1. Mayor Marilyn Strickland. It just flows off the lips. The likelihood of that very thing being on the lips of everyone in Tacoma for a few more years just increased dramatically, as Mayor Strickland has formally announced her reelection campaign and will hold a kick-off at 5:30 p.m. inside the Pantages Theater.

2. Maybe your ex never splurged on roses. Or maybe your experience in gardening consists solely of ogling the neighbor's help. Either way, we're guessing you're ready to start your own garden. If that's the case, stop by Gallucci Learning Garden from 5-7 p.m. for a free workshop on growing calendars, succession planting and how to best utilize your garden's space.

3. In 2011, readers of this fine rag voted the Top of Tacoma Bar and Cafe the best bar in Tacoma. This was due in no small part to their well drink Wednesdays. Two dolar well drinks after 7 p.m. Are you kidding? That's, like, riding the train to funkytown for only eight bucks. Yes, please. The kitchen stay sopen to midnight. Choo, choooo!

4. Pub trivia nights can either ignite the party or stifle the mood. McNamara's Pub & Eatery in DuPont does everything possible to avoid being a major buzz kill. Every Wednesday McNamara's Pub starts team trivia at 7 p.m. Irish-inspired food helps trivia players stock up on brainpower before the trivia starts. Beer and drink specials happen at trivia intermission. Because everyone knows a good buzz makes trivia that much easier. What's the capital of Kazakhstan? Take a drink and think.

5. After two-and-a-half years, the Tallhouse Arts Consortium is back in full swing with its first Wednesday of the month free performances at The Brotherhood Lounge in Olympia, which is tonight at 8 p.m. The aerialists, whose Facebook profile states, "Farting rhinestones since... ah, we can't even remember," will delight audiences with its strong and sturdy flips, flying and artistic trapeze. The group brings in interesting songs, unique performances, flirty fun and guest trapeze artist Lara Paxton - all for free.

5 Things To Do Today: "Sound City," Native American art, open mic, trivia contests and more ...

"SOUND CITY": Dave Grohl proves his filmmaking capabilities with this ode to a piece of old-school recording equipment ??" the Neve console.

TUESDAY, APRIL 2 2013 >>>

1. Dave Grohl is pissed that analog is dying and that everything's digital, so he made a documentary about legendary studio Sound City and its soundboard. Sound City was a recording studio in the Van Nuys district of LA that opened in 1969. A few years later, after the installation of a rare Neve recording board, the room became a magical place, spawning mega-selling albums by Fleetwood Mac (as well as the hit-making lineup of the band, with Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks), Pat Benatar, Rick Springfield (yeah, "Jessie's Girl" was done there), Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Ratt, Nevermind, Rage Against the Machine and many more. Yup, this is where Paul McCartney sings with a Cobain-less Nirvana. This flick is for fans of Josh Homme, Stevie Nicks, Trent Reznor and unpolished classic studio rock. See it at 1:45 and 6:45 p.m. inside The Grand Cinema.

2. The Fifth Annual Native American Heritage Art Exhibit has opened at the Kenneth J. Minnaert Center for the Arts Gallery. The exhibit, which runs through April 25, features a wide variety of works by local and regional Native American artists. These works include paintings, basketry, carved wood pieces and mixed media.

3. The latest show at Kittredge Gallery on the campus of the University of Puget Sound has Seattle painter Cable Griffith's video game-influenced paintings in the main gallery and an installation by sculptor and UPS art faculty member Michael Johnson in the back gallery. Griffith's paintings are abstract, stylized images based on imagery from early video games. Titled "Up-Up-Down-Down-Left-Right-Left-Right-B-A-Start," the show references directions in maps, games, cities and the countryside with schematic renderings of colorful streets, rivers and buildings - Pop Art renderings of the pathways taken by players like the Mario Brothers and PacMan. Griffith will be talking about my work to a group of UPS students at 4 p.m. if you want to grab a peek of him.

4. Quick! Tell us who played Violet Bickerstaff, Screech's love interest, on three episodes of the television show Saved by the Bell? If you said "Tori Spelling," then going to a trivia night might be for you. There are trivia competitions all around the South Sound on a Tuesday night, where you can unleash your inner Ken Jennings. And while you won't approach Jennings-like earnings, you can win some cool stuff, ranging from gift certificates, to concert or sports tickets, to a VHS copy of All of Me, the film starring Lily Tomlin and Steve Martin. Sweet! Two of our favorite Tuesday night trivia are at Fish Tale Brew Pub in Olympia and Farrelli's Wood-Fire Pizza in Tacoma, both start at 8 p.m. In terms of food, Farrelli's pies are hand-tossed, firm but chewy with a flop at the tip. The Jack & John Pizza - Italian sausage, Provolone/mozzarella blend, green and black olives, green onions, artichoke hearts, mushrooms - is so yum! At Fish Tale, go for the ham and Brie. Loaded with deli ham, smothered in nutty melted Brie and nestled between two slices of grilled sourdough, this one takes the trophy with the inclusion of sliced granny smith apples and mellow horseradish.

5. If hearing the sound of your own cackling voice echoing off the walls of your shower stall has you craving the sound of something a bit more harmonious, check out the local songbirds and storytellers at Victory Music Open Mic at 7 p.m. inside the Antique Sandwich Co. It's guaranteed to be jam-packed with gorgeous sounds and humbling verses, as the South Sound's greatest up-and-coming acoustic musicians, poets, and storytellers bare their souls impromptu-style.

5 Things To Do Today: Derde Verde, Ginny Ruffner, digital art, Trivia For Dorks and more ...

DERDE VERDE: Shoegaze, krautrock, indie-electronic, engrossing. Photo credit: Miriam Brummel - Even Keel Imagery

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 27 2013 >>>

1. Derde Verde continues the grand journey set forth by bands such as Radiohead and Hawkwind. The LA-based band's new EP, Let Me Be A Light, glows with the organic warmth of the band's indie-electronica, while possessing the mechanical propulsion of Krautrock bands like Neu!. If those names don't pique your interest, then we can't help you. Intentionally dense, minimalist, electronics-heavy, post-rock opera with layers of blips and synthetic sounds blending into lush orchestral pieces and starkly original compositions just isn't your thing. Therefore, we don't expect to see you at 9 p.m. when Derde Verde joins The Hard Way and Babysolf at Le Voyeur. 

2. Seattle-based glass artist Ginny Ruffner spent five weeks in a coma followed by five years in a wheel chair after a car crash. And as the film A Not So Still Life, the misfortune that left her with speech and mobility problems didn't make her bitter, it made her stronger. Ruffner is this week's visiting artist at the Museum of Glass. She's probably going all mixed-media on the folks in the Hot Shop from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

3. The Washington Center board of directors and the city of Olympia will unveil the new exterior design for the Center during an open house from 5-7 p.m. The construction timeline, architectural renderings and a historical perspective of the theater building will be on display. I think the new exterior siding that will keep the rain on the outside is the biggest improvement and the most needed," Washington Center Marketing Director Anne Larson told the Weekly Volcano.  "But staff is most excited about the new grand entrance. It will be a beacon for patrons and help lead the revitalization of downtown."

4. So you're three months into 2013 and that Dec. 31 vow to quit carbs is already starting to feel onerous. Here's a better idea: How 'bout you actually go out and, like, learn something. C.L.A.W. presents Northwest illustrator, cartoonist and game designer Chuck Knigge for a digital painting and drawing workshop at 8 p.m. inside King's Books.

5. Every Wednesday at 8 p.m. Dorky's Arcade hosts Trivia for Dorks — a free, all-ages affair with such prizes as gift certificates to Dorky's. Sure, prizes are nice, but even better is dropping your win at your next round table D & D discussion. Teams can earn bonus points for correctly identifying the night's theme.

5 Things To Do Today: Scrabble Rabble, Crotch Rockets, art receptions, Moustache Bandits and more ...

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 13 2013 >>>

1. It may be grayer than Bea Arthur's pixie cut outside, but not so inside King's Books at 6 p.m. The Tacoma bookstore's Scrabble Rabble tournament will allow participants to establish their own skill levels and compete with others for glory. The Weekly Volcano has always enjoyed hanging onto the "Q," where it hangs there on our rack like some ultimate weapon of destruction, waiting for that all-enabling "U" tile to unleash its point-mongering wrath upon our opponents. Anyway, if your job sucks or you have a strange rash, join the tournament and those problems will, if only for a few hours, ease back into the recesses of your mind. Oh, and read Kristin Kendle's feature on Scrabble Rabble on the Weekly Volcano's blog Spew.

2. Since its introduction in 1894, the motorcycle has spawned a variety of cultures and uses. As basic transportation, as leisure activity or as a die-hard lifestyle, millions of people have a love affair with Choppers, Crotch Rockets, Thumpers and all things two-wheeled. The action-packed exhibit "Let's Ride! Motocycling The Northwest at the Washington State History Museum is a celebration of the region's never-waning motorcycle culture - will include interactive exhibits, videos and impressive displays of machines from 1906 to the 21st century. Check it out from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

3. Sometimes, it's best to go small. Other times, going big is the thing to do. From 5-8 p.m., it's highly suggested you do both. Kittredge Gallery on the University of Puget Sound hosts two opening receptions. In its Small Gallery, you may enjoy "You Are Here," an installation of a new series of work by University of Puget Sound professor of art, Michael Johnson. The exhibition encompasses a group of three-dimensional drawings, a melding of Johnson's sculptural practice with technology. In the Large Gallery, the long-titled "Up-Up-Down-Down-Left-Right-Left-Right-B-A-Start," an exhibition of new work by Seattle painter Cable Griffith, embraces the influence of early video game imagery, systems and themes. The exhibition includes drawings, paintings, sculpture and an interactive video game/painting collaboration with Brent Watanabe. Both exhibitions will close April 13.

4. Saxophonist Kareem Kandi's sound is virtually unrelated to the roomy traditions of soul saxes, honking saxes or deep-chested boudoir ballad saxes. It derives from the classic, free, often enthusiastic tradition of Joshua Redman as filtered through Dexter Gordon and Sonny Stitt, all of whose shadows can be traced-Redman in Kandi's funky organicism, Gordon in his dynamic harmonics, Stitt in the intensity that coats his every note with a Gritty City finish. Kandi has been hanging with organist Delvon Lamarr and drummer Adam Kessler, which has added groovy innovation to Kandi's sound. The Kareem Kandi Band heads back to The Swiss at 7 p.m. for another Wednesday open jam session.

5. Bozeman raunch 'n' rollers The Moustache Bandits will bring its high intensity performance and tongue-in-cheek cow-punk songs to Le Voyeur at 9 p.m.

5 Things To Do Today: "Consuming Spirits," food and wine pairing, new trivia game, Science Cafe and more ...

"CONSUMING SPIRITS": It's a handmade animated descent into the secrets of characters that come from someone's unsettling dreams.

TUESDAY, MARCH 12, 2013 >>>

1. The Grand Cinema screens Consuming Spirits at 2:30 and 7 p.m. as part of its Tuesday Film Series. The masterpiece, which took 15 years to make and was finally completed in 2012, combines several animation styles and techniques including hand drawn, stop motion, but mostly paper cut out. It is the story of people in a small ordinary town, knowing nothing but their ordinary affairs, revealing their sins and crimes with an ordinary negligence. It's the movie baby if Ironweed mated with A Prairie Home Companion. This one's a winner, folks. It'll make you feel depressed afterward, but in a good way.

2. Photographer D.T. Rosenoff's exhibition "Flowers: Earth's Laughter" opens today at Asian Pacific Cultural Center in Tacoma. The exhibition of 24 images is a collection of duo-toned black and white digital archival photographs of flowers taken over the last eight years.

3. If you're feeling like indulging in the finer things in life, and what to try something a little different than the norm, Maxwell's Speakeasy and Lounge has the weekly special for you. Every Tuesday, Maxwell's serves two chef's choice appetizers and two house wines or draft beers for $15.

4. The new Treos cafe in Old Town Tacoma has launched a trivia night with Tristan every Tuesday. From 6-7 p.m. teams up to six players may battle for prizes and gift cards.

5. The Science Café returns to Orca Books with a 7 p.m. lecture from Kathi Lefebvre, Ph.D., research biologist at NOAA Fisheries titled, "From Zebrafish to Sea Lions to Humans: Common Effects of Seafood Toxin Exposure." Acute exposure of seafood toxins causes a neurotoxic illness known as amnesic shellfish poisoning characterized by seizures, memory loss, coma and death.

Grab the baggie from your closet's top shelf and shake it out at King's Books

ELLIOT SAWYER: The former Scrabble Rouser offers a Scrabble tribute to Tacoma.

BRING ON THE ELUSIVE Q-WITHOUT-U WORDS >>>

When Words with Friends is not enough - never fear. When Deluxe Scrabble with your significant other loses its shine - don't you fret! The world of word games has much to offer you. Your wordy nerdiness is not at an end yet, young padawan.

Scrabble Rabble has come to King's Books. Whether you've never played Scrabble before or consider yourself armed and dangerous with a letter tile, you can join in, play a few rounds of Scrabble, and help raise funds for a good cause.

The event rises out of the ashes of a former event, Scrabble Rousers. Like Scrabble Rousers, raised funds still go to the Tacoma Community House. The group is now self-running, too.

The first fresh incarnation is at King's Books Wednesday, March 13, from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. The goal is to have two timed 45-minutes games once a month, with up to 20, two-person games running.

"We try to march people on the basis of self-identified ability, but we'll also be keeping a score based ladder, so that a 300 point a game player doesn't get matched with a 100 point a game player," says organizer Richard Lovering.

The cost to play has also gone down from $10 in the past to $5 now. If you can't afford the $5, they still might even let you in.

"We used to have theme nights - bad poetry night, pirates night, murder mystery night," says Lovering. "Now we're just playing Scrabble, but as things roll out, we may do more. We donate to TCH because we always have, but we are open to other charities. In our re-infancy, big profits have yet to happen. When they do, we'll figure out a way to give 'em away to a worthy cause."

For future game times, check out Scrabble Rabble on Facebook.

5 Things To Do Today: Brews and Bunnies, "Freedom Sailors," O'Bingo, Trivia For Dorks and more ...

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 6 2013 >>>

1. Typically when discussing beers and hops, one is discussing intensely bitter and bracing beers with a pronounced bite that stays in your mouth all the way to the bottom of the glass ... and beyond. From 6-10 p.m. at Doyle's Public House, hops will take a more literal form, as in bunny rabbits. Project:U, those hip, 20-something, do-gooder rascals from United Way, will host their second annual Brews and Bunnies night. Besides collecting calories, Project:U will collect stuffed bunnies of all shapes and sizes to give to local kiddos during Easter weekend. Doyle's has graciously agreed to donate a portion of the night's proceeds - which will be given to the United Way of Pierce County's Community Solutions Fund - because that's how the Stadium District bar rolls.

2. If you need a beer break from Doyle's, walk next door to King's Books and catch Greta Berlin and Bill Dienst, co-editors of the new book Freedom Sailors, as they discuss the 44 intrepid passengers who sailed through Israel's illegal blockade on Gaza in August, 2008. The discussion will begin at 7 p.m.

3. Usually, the Weekly Volcano feels pretty cool when we order drinks. James Bond clicking opening his cigarette case as he orders his martini kind of cool. We imagine we just kicked ass in our tuxedo and call for our libations with pride. Unless, it's early Wednesday evening after we put the newspaper to bed. Then we drag our tired asses to The Hub. The bicycle-themed neighborhood joint serves $3 Orange Appeals, J&J's, Cosmos, Kamikazes - vodka drinks - and Harmon pints every Wednesday.

4. Paddy Coyne's Irish Pub in downtown Tacoma will launch its new Wednesday night bingo game at 7:30 p.m. It's free to participate with prizes to be scored. If you like a little B-9 with your bangers and mash, then pull up a bar stool. Expect drink specials. Expect not as many blue hairs as your typical bingo game.

5. Dorky's Bar Arcade in Tacoma knows there are many who love live for Twilight's gleeful decapitations and fang-on-fang showdowns. That's why the downtown Tacoma bar + arcade will occassionaly focus its weekly trivia session - Trivia for Dorks - on the vampire melodrama. Held every Wednesday at 8 p.m., Trivia for Dorks is a free, all-ages affair with such prizes as gift certificates to Dorky's. Sure, prizes are nice, but even better is dropping your win at your next round table D & D discussion.

5 Things To Do Today: Karp documentary in a bar, "Starlet," trivia night, Unknown Relatives and more ...

"Starlet": The film drifts around the San Fernando Valley, dividing itself from morality and watching guarded souls interact.

TUESDAY, FEB. 26 2013 >>>

1. In the 1990s Olympians were knee deep in a D.I.Y. music revolution, running between house concerts and packing it in anytime indie-metal band KARP found a stage. Short for Kill All Redneck Pricks, KARP anchored the other end of the K Records roster - the loud, impenitent high-energy end. By the end of the '90s, like many of the Olympia venues of the time, KARP faded to black. After 4 1/2 years of collecting archival footage - and conducting interviews with Calvin Johnson of K Records, Justin Trosper of Unwound, Kathleen Hanna of Bikini Kill and others - Brooklyn filmmaker William E. Badgley has managed to capture the rise and fall of the raucous band in his film, Kill All Redneck Pricks: A documentary about a band called KARP. The film documents - in a rough-and-tumble style - the story of the Olympia sludge band and its exposure to drugs, demons and bad luck. Tonight at 9:30 p.m. catch a free screening of the KARP documentary on King Solomon's Reef's new big ass projector screen ... with director Badgley drinking next to you.

2. It's Tuesday, which means The Grand Cinema busts out another special film gem. Today at 2:15 and 8:05 p.m. the independent film house will screen Starlet, the story of an unlikely friendship between 21 year-old Jane and the elderly Sadie after Jane discovers a hidden stash of money inside an object at Sadie's yard sale.

3. You’re feeling pretty down about your failed Oscars predictions. But, hark! dear knowitall. Your shot at redemption and encyclopedic esteem lies before you at The Hub's Trivia Night. Every Tuesday from 6-8 p.m. the Tacoma Stadium District restaurant hosts two rounds of trivia with$100 in cash prizes.

4. Lyda Kuth and Kent Christman were enrolled at The Evergreen State College in the '70s. Nearly a decade later, they crossed paths in Boston and later married. Their relationship, and the universal uncertainties of finding and staying in love, is the subject of Kuth’s first feature film, Love and Other Anxieties, which will screen at 6:30 p.m. at The Evegreen State College. Kuth will answer questions after the screening.

5. The Unknown Relatives play songs that sound like dead ringers for songs you'd find hidden in one of those Nuggets compilations of long-lost '60s garage gems. It's all bopping guitar and bouncy rhythms, with cute little stop-start dynamics that pull you in and make you oddly invested in a song that's just a little over a minute and a half long.Check the band out with The Matildas and Pacific Pride at 10 p.m. inside Le Voyeur in Olympia.
