MONDAY, NOV. 26 2012 >>>

1. Bloody hell! It's a dark red night at the Acme Grub Cage as another Tacoma Cult Movie Club rolls in at 7 p.m. Tonight, it's more gore for the money (free) for this post-Thanksgiving holiday celebration as the TCMC indulges in movies about people that would rather eat a Turk than a turkey. That's right, it's a night of cannibal films. As always, admission and popcorn are free. Don't forget it's 21+ only, and make sure you indulge in those great drinks and the fabulous raffle drawing.

2. Tonight, the ladies of Pistols and Petticoats are celebrating their one-year anniversary. The group that meets regularly for shooting at Bull's Eye Range in Tacoma and meets regularly for drinks in Olympia, plan to potluck, network and shoot the shit (pun fully intended) at The Brotherhood Lounge. Festivities are from 6-9 p.m. and include a raffle with awesome locally sponsored prizes, cute merchandise from the DIY girls in the club and a drink special on the dangerously delicious Smith & Wesson.

3. Poet, performer, singer and songwriter James Talley may not have instant name recognition in every household, but the list of performers who have performed his songs do - Johnny Cash and Paycheck, Gene Clark, Alan Jackson and Moby have all recorded James Talley songs. During Talley's long career he has performed twice in the White House, played the Smithsonian and even had B.B. King lay guitar tracks on his albums. The Mehan, Oklahoma born singer's career spans more than 40 years garnering him universal praise for his folk-country-blues songs written with lightness, impact and beauty. Catch him at 7 p.m. inside the Olympic Room at the Tacoma Public Library's Main Branch.

4. The C Davis New Orleans Quartet specializes in New Orleans jazz in the spirit of King Oliver, Louis Armstrong and the great New Orleans Revivalists such a George Lewis and Bunk Johnson. The repertoire also includes music from the Turk Murphy and Lu Watters book, several specialty numbers that are transcriptions of the Louis Armstrong Hot 5 and even a little ragtime. Catch the quartet at 8 p.m. inside The Royal Lounge in Olympia.

5. Speaking of jazz, the S.R.O. Swong Band will swing at 7 p.m. inside the Imperial Dragon restaurant in Tacoma.
