THIS WEEK'S VOLCANO MUSIC COVERAGE >>>

The Weekly Volcano never sleeps. It's true ... or very close to true. We average only a few hours of shut-eye a night, be it because we're busy putting together another jaw-dropping issue of the Weekly Volcano, or simply because we're strung out on Xbox.

It's true. And you better believe we managed to pump out another stellar Weekly Volcano music section, just like we do every Thursday.

The Weekly Volcano music section is your weekly chance at the best in South Sound music coverage. This week's Volcano music section includes Crypts, the Harmon Tap Room Underground's Grand Opening, The League of Extraordinary Emcees, Missionary Position, Resident Kings and much more

Here's a look at the sonic goodness coming at you in print and online in this week's Volcano ...

FEATURE: CRYPTS

Upon first being confronted with Crypts, the most immediate impression is a blast of non-directional aggression. Crypts is a band that seems intent on creating a vibe of barely contained chaos and vicious noise. Crypts want the audience to be conflicted, to be challenged. ... -- Rev. Adam McKinney

FEATURE: HARMON TAP ROOM UNDERGROUND GRAND OPENING

Opened two years ago this June, the Tap Room, with its backroom brewery, was initially an answer to the overwhelming demand for Harmon beer, but struggled with its identity as a business. For one thing, the location proved to be a challenge. With the Tap Room located directly under The Hub, the Harmon siblings found themselves competing with one another. 

It soon became clear that the Tap Room needed to offer something that neither of the other Harmon locations could: it was soon decided that music of all genres in a 21-and-over setting, until 2 a.m. was the answer.  The concept of the Tap Room Underground was born.

This weekend's official "Grand Opening" at the Harmon Tap Room Underground promises local favorites like the Kim Archer Band and Steve Stefanowicz, and scheduled in the great company of the band Ben Union along with Travis Barker, Pete Johnson and Seattle-based artists Kate Lynn Logan and Gina Belliveau. The Tap Room Underground's Grand Opening will be free, with music starting at 6 p.m., and punctuated by two happy hours, 3-6 p.m. and 9-11 p.m. ... -- Jenni Prange Boran

HIP-HOP: THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY EMCEES

The League of Extraordinary Emcees is a crew consisting of Kept See, Prickly Pear, D.J. Iceman, Un Therhymehustla, Court Royal and Josh (Conflict of Interest) Rizeberg. It's an international crew, stretching from the United States all the way to Germany via Prickly Pear. The crew is a fully functioning MC outfit with in-house production and a record label. The League of Extraordinary Emcees also holds nonprofit status and works closely with the Universal Zulu Nation and the Seattle Zulu Nation Chapter. Many artists in the League teach hip-hop to children in schools and at after-school centers all across King and Pierce Counties. - Josh Rizeberg

WE RECOMMEND: MISSIONARY POSITION

As far as Jeff Angell goes in this world, Tacoma will always claim the born-to-be frontman as its own. And with good reason. Junior cut his teeth in T-Town, and the grit shows in his music to this day - even on his band's, the Missionary Position's, most recent effort - Consequences, which will no doubt be delved into heavily Saturday at Jazzbones in Tacoma. ... -- Matt Driscoll

WE RECOMMEND: RESIDENT KINGS

Resident Kings (an Oly band featuring members of Dirty Birds and Fitz of Depression), Last Watch (featuring John Johnson of Hillstomp), and Hong Kong Banana were all set to play the Eastside Club in Olympia this week. But, last minute changes have put Oly's most reliable weekend venue on hiatus until further notice. Lucky for Olympia, we have each other's back - and McCoy's will host Friday night's hoorah. - Nikki Talotta
