Happy Thanksgiving!

Barring any new Movember drunken people donning mustaches photos, the Weekly Volcano is going to use the holiday as an excuse to take a rare day off. So, please people, for our sake, dig out that ol' music box that plays "Born Free," open a new doughnut shop or start your own Pacific Avenue Streetscape Project.

And we totally want photos of your family's fight to the death over who has the damn Tupperware. The Weekly Volcano knows every year someone brings Tupperware to collect leftovers and every effing year it disappears.

We'll all see you back here tomorrow for 5 Things To Do, The Weekend Hustle and other glorious posts.

Remember: baste often.

5 Things To Do Today: Polar Plaza ice skating, Lelavision, Zoolights, "Dreamgirls" and more ...

FRANCISCAN POLAR PLAZA: Yay! Photo credit: Tacoma Art Museum

FRIDAY, NOV. 23, 2012 >>>

1. How do you escape the pressures of the holidays, like, really quick? Bundle up, drop your packages in the trunk, pinch your cheeks until they glow and strap on a pair of silver skates, Hans Brinker, for a glide across the frozen expanse at Tollefson Plaza. The Franciscan Polar Plaza, located on the corner of Pacific Avenue and South 17th Street. The covered outdoor rink is about half the size of a hockey rink. It will have real ice and hold about 150 skaters at a time. To read the top 10 reasons why Polar Plaza is awesome, click here.

2. Remember when you used to dress your dolls up and make them act out scenes from Footloose? There they were all lined up on the bed, and G.I. Joe with the kung fu grip was causing trouble and Barbie was fighting with Cabbage Patch while their passive-aggressive little stuffed animal children hid their eyes. Yep, you've always been strange. But the point of this is you're still a fan of physical agility and humor. Vashon circus/music duo Lelavision - the troupe that combines Cirque de Soleil and Stomp, and then adds its own unique vision for a humorous, musical, theatrical and dance performance unlike any other - returns to the Museum of Glass for family-friendly performances at 1 and 3 p.m. Catch their science meets musical dance with a Cabbage Patch in your pocket. Freak.

3. If you're looking for a holiday-oriented family outing in the weeks leading up to Christmas, Zoolights at the Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium is a solid pick. Staff at PDZA decorates the animal hangout with a half-million colorful lights throughout the property. Once dark, the zoo illuminates as families take in the beautiful lights and magnificent displays. From the moment you walk in, there's a relatively cheap toy stand where kids can purchase neat glow-in-the-dark items. There are other activities families can enjoy as well. They can ride a camel, take a fun spin on the antique carousel. Zoolights opens tonight at 5 p.m. and stays opens until 9 p.m. daily.

4. A new adaptation of Dreamgirls, the 1981 Tony award-winning musical turned 2006 Oscar award-winning film, launches the DASH Center's 2012-13 season at 7:30 p.m. tonight inside the Charles Wright Academy LAPAC Theatre, 7723 Chambers Creek Rd. W., University Place. Dreamgirls follows the rise and fall of a 1960s female singing group, their struggles to succeed in the music world, and their interpersonal she-wars.

5. 253Heart Music Festival continues today at the Harmon Taproom and Harmon Brewery & Eatery open the doors to the community, allowing local talent to play its heart out, plus providing an opportunity to give back  - admission is non-perishable food items for local food banks. For today's schedule, click here.

Craft & Gift Bazaar is born in Tacoma

CRAFT & GIFT BAZAAR: The artwork of Rebekah Slusher will be available for purchase. Photo courtesy of Facebook

SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY LIKE >>>

You could spend this weekend with the mall hoard, kicking off your holiday shopping with the frenzied masses. Or, you could celebrate the local-boon that is Small Business Saturday by heading to Uncorked Canvas - a painting studio that offers classes to the masses - for its first annual Craft & Gift Bazaar.

"This is our first year doing this bazaar, as we are newly moved to the Tacoma-area," says Rebekah Slusher, a teacher at Uncorked Canvas. "But we're in this new beautiful studio in the heart of the Theatre District, and we needed to use it for something wonderful!"

Bonus - no Mary Kay or Passion Party tables here!

"Every vendor at our event is a local, small business," says Slusher. "Absolutely no re-sellers, and only hand-crafted wares. Plus, we've made sure that there are no repeat styles or items, so shoppers are sure to find something different at each booth."

The mix of artists will include the likes of Alexis St. John with her fantastical-yet-adorable children's artwork, hand-made jewelry by Suzanne Glazier and Therese Tucker, paintings by Lori Paine and Rebekah Slusher and others. A total of 16 artists will be in the house. Items on sale will include everything from wine charms to steampunk jewelry, Christmas cards to mosaics, ornaments to baby onesies.

There will also be mulled wine and cider flowing freely, treats for all and raffles all weekend long. Saturday only at 2 and 4 p.m. a group of carolers will add some extra festive fun.

Support your local artists and find one-of-a-kind gifts.

UNCORKED CANVAS, SATURDAY, NOV. 24-SUNDAY, NOV. 25, 10 A.M. TO 7 P.M., 711 SAINT HELENS AVE., TACOMA, 253.432.4052

WE SCENE IT >>>

Sure, the night before Thanksgiving's ideal for holiday meal prep, but who wanted to chill with a dead bird on one of the biggest party nights in Tacoma? Granny handled the stuffing just fine.

There's no time like the night before Thanksgiving to reconnect with friends over a cold one. The unofficial holiday has become the excuse of the year to hit the bars, mostly because friends and family who've moved out of town are back to visit for the holidays.

The Weekly Volcano dropped in on several parties Wednesday night: Kim Archer Band performing at the mustache party inside The Hub, the 253Heart Music Festival stages at the Harmon Tap Room, the 253Heart DJ night at Dorky's Arcade and Doyle's Bad Sweater Party, which was completely packed with gawd awful clothing choices.

>>> FRIDAY, NOV. 23: A CHRISTMAS SURVIVAL GUIDE

Round up the family for some comedic relief and see Harlequin Productions opening night performance of A Christmas Survival Guide, a musical for the whole family. Harlequin Productions describes the play as follows, "This intimate revue takes a wry and knowing look at a stressful season. Armed with a copy of A Christmas Survival Guide and an optimistic attitude, our characters charge into an urban holiday landscape searching for the true essence of Christmas. In songs and vignettes, they learn to cope with the season in ways that are both hilarious and heartwarming." The show features laugh out loud pokes at the season of stresses and stars a cast of talented, funny actors and some puppets. Take your mind of the turkey and the holiday bills and enjoy a night of music and fun. — Nikki McCoy

  • Harlequin Productions, Nov. 23-Dec. 31, 8 p.m., $15-$38, 202 Fourth Ave. E., Olympia, 360.786.0151

>>> FRIDAY, NOV. 23-SATURDAY, NOV. 24: GRINDHOUSE THEATER

After a day of carving turkey, why not enjoy a cinematic experience of carving people with Grindhouse Theater's presentation of Cannibal Ferox on 35 mm film? The film, which has been banned in 31 countries, will include rare uncut footage of raw gore and shock. Due to it's violent nature, no one younger than 17 should be permitted. Umberto Lenzi's 1981 Italian cannibal cult classic, Cannibal Ferox will play Friday and Saturday night and features audience appreciation by offering free raffle and trivia with prizes/giveaways from sponsors: Cult Collectibles - Figures From The Fringe!, Rotten Cotton, Fangoria, Crypticon Seattle and RaroVideo. In addition to the raffle ticket movie-goers get for free just for attending, this screening is a special food drive where each can of food brought will earn another raffle ticket. — NM

  • The Grand Cinema, Friday and Saturday, Nov 23-24, 9 p.m., $9, 606 S. Fawcett Ave., Tacoma, 253.593.4474

>>> SATURDAY, NOV. 24: SING-ALONG SOUND OF MUSIC & TREE LIGHTING

Maybe you can't be in the Alps, twirling in a lovely dress and pinafore, and dancing around an estate with scads of charming children singing "Do, a deer... ." But Saturday you can "Climb Ev'ry Mountain" with everyone at the Pantages Theater for Sing-A-Long Sound of Music. With a newly restored version of the film projected high and wide for all to see and sing to, so you won't miss a note - or a chance to hiss at the Baroness. Come in costume and be judged for prizes. Afterward, you can be a part of an age-old Tacoma holiday tradition - the tree lighting ceremony at Ninth and Broadway. — Ron Swarner

  • Pantages Theater, 2 p.m. film, 5:30 p.m. tree lighting, 901 Broadway, Tacoma, 253.591.5894

>>> SATURDAY, NOV. 24: GRITTY CITY GIFT FAIR

The only time we were forced to walk through that new H&M store in the mall we started to feel queasy, claustrophobic and like we were going to karate chop the next person we saw with a stupid bleach pattern on their jeans in the throat. Just because it's the holiday season doesn't mean anyone should have to go through this. Saturday, check out the Jada-Moon Gridley-created Gritty City Gift Fair, where local artists and crafters will offer their one-of-a-kind fairs for all at the 906 Broadway space in Tacoma's Antqiue Row. Expect re-purposed silk, cashmere and wool to recyled silver and pearls, fashion, reclaimed wood, forged steel, sparkling gems, feathers, ceramics, glass and more. — Weekly Volcano

>>> MONDAY, NOV. 26: PISTOLS AND PETTICOATS PARTY

Monday, Nov 26, 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. The group always accepts new members and will have information on hand for interested parties. — NM

  • The Brotherhood Lounge, 6 p.m., no cover, 310 Capitol Way, Olympia, 360.352.4153

WHAT SOME OF OUR STAFF MEMBERS ARE UP TO

CHRISTIAN CARVAJAL Theater Critic
This is a massive theater weekend for me, so I hope that tryptophan thing really is a myth. I'm seeing Nuncrackers at Capital Playhouse, The Sound of Music at Tacoma Musical Playhouse, and Christmas Survival Guide at Harlequin. Finally, it's time for the best Thanksgiving activity: delicious dinner roll leftover sandwiches.

REV. ADAM MCKINNEY Music Writer
Saturday, I'll be attending a birthday party at the home of James Jenkins, of People Under the Sun (local) fame. There will be copious amounts of drinking and indoor smoking. The following day, I'll smell like success.

ALEC CLAYTON Arts Critic
My Thanksgiving weekend will be filled with theater. Friday night I shall attend the opening of Nuncrackers at Capital Playhouse. It's a wildly silly continuation of the irreverent sisters who first appeared in Nunsense. Then Saturday night another holiday treat - I hope - an original musical send-up from Harlequin Productions called The Christmas Survival Guide.

NIKKI MCCOY Feature Writer
Yesterday I annoyed my family with repeat plays of Adam Sandler's Thanskgiving Song performance on SNL. "Turkey lurkey doo and Turkey lurkey dap, I eat that turkey, Then I take a nap."  I can't get enough of those lyrics! Anyway, Friday is another TGIF happy hour shift at the bar, where I will play nurse, handing out tonics to cure your Thanksgiving hang over. Saturday I'm taking my mom out for her birthday and some local holiday shopping and Sunday will hopefully be chill, with turkey sandwiches and games of Scrabble.

JACKIE FENDER Food Writer
Aside from my usual work "week," I will be helping to guide the masses in the Underground Tacoma tour through the dim lit perils of spiders, dust and creepy never never land characters. Immediately afterward Ill be collecting passports from the Art Bus/Go Local collaboration to be entered into a raffle as an incentive to spend your holiday dollars locally. After all of that amazing madness on Saturday and my obligatory long day Sunday slinging the most important meal of the day, I will spend Sunday evening hibernating.

JOANN VARNELL Theater Critic
Hello CHRIIIIIIIISTMAAAAAS! Well, OK, not really but the toddler, husband, and I will be going to the Sumner Bridge Lighting on Friday. On Saturday we'll go get a Christmas tree and maybe see some snow. Sunday we will head to church and relax.

TIMOTHY GRISHAM Music Writer
As I roll myself out of bed from post tryptophan hybernation, I will partake in the annual family film outing. I hope you imagine this in as much of a National Lampoon's Vacation way as it actually is. I am sure I will draw the short straw and we will see something like Red Dawn. It always happens that way. But perhaps better heads will prevail and we will go to Friday's screening of Cannibal Ferox at The Grand Cinema. The 1981 film is part of the filmhouse's Grindhouse Theater Series and plays both Friday and Saturday at 9 p.m. The film is about three friends out to disprove cannibalism who meet up with two fugitives who are hunted by a cannibal tribe. Nothing says Happy Thanksgiving like cannibalism, am I right?

JOSH RIZEBERG Music Columnist
Friday I'll be taking a trip The Comet in Seattle where I'll be catching Metal Chocolates, SpecsWizard, and Silas Blak and AMPFIRE. This will be one of the best, eclectic, avant-garde, artistic, yet hard nights of hip-hop Seattle has to offer. Saturday the 24th, I'll be helping D.A.S.H. Center for the Arts put on Dreamgirls. It's their big winter show. It is at the LAPAC Theatre at Charles Wright Academy. Get some tickets and support these kids! Sunday night, I'll be back-up in Seattle at The Nectar. They have a free hip-hop showcase. Nectar always has good shows, but this one is free!

JENNI BORAN Features Writer
Once upon a time, when I was in fourth-grade, I had a little boyfriend, and he was in a band!  Well, he's still in a band (a different band, this one is called STRIPPED), and we'll be seeing them play at Jack's in Renton this Saturday at 9 p.m. I had to take it easy on the turkey so I could fit in my skinny jeans.

STEVE DUNKELBERGER Photog About Town
As you have seen earlier today, I went nuts on the Kim Archer Band, 253Heart Music Festival and Bad Sweater Party Wednesday night. I'm taking to the stage myself at 9 p.m. Friday at the Harmon as the Monday Ukulele Ohana performs at the 253Heart Music Festival.

NIC LEONARD Music Writer
I hit the Thanksgiving show Wednesday at the Urban Onion, I'm looking forward to a wonderful weekend with the family. Then, of course, the Seahawks game Sunday.

ROCKFORD ROWLEY All-Ages Music Columnist

SOUTH SOUND SIDEKICK: The brutal honesty of today's music business

RAYMOND HAYDEN: He joins Jasmine Parker, Leah Tussing and Eddie Mendoza on stage tonight at 9:30 p.m. inside the Harmon Brewery & Eatery. Press photo

South Sound Sidekick series offers advice from experts living in the, well, South Sound. It posts every Friday. Today, Maurice the Fish Records CEO Raymond Hayden has advice to musicians who are starting out in the musicic business or musicians who need a re-boot.

Raymond Hayden writes,

About a week ago, I was contacted by the Weekly Volcano to write an article based on what it takes to get started in the music business, get gigs, promote bands and their respective brands and stay true to ideals and visions.  Of course, being entrenched in the music scene I said yes and considered it a real opportunity to give back to the music community from which I thrive - you know, pay it forward.  As I started developing ideas for this article, I was reminded that without some very basic tools you shouldn't even make an attempt at jumping in. So, it is with that premise that I write to each of you who are either just getting started or are a veteran that needs a re-boot!

Like other industries, the music industry is always changing and adapting to the times.  However, over the past decade, the music scene has over gone some major changes with how people acquire music. With the onslaught of MP3s what used to be a "brick and mortar distributed" product is now easily accessible (free in many cases).  This was a total game changer for the industry.  Back in the day, artists and bands were looking to "get signed."  With these changes, record labels lost their ability to control the sales of their artist's albums - the whole getting signed goal for artists changed as well.

The current state of the industry is centered on three letters - D.I.Y. (Do It Yourself).  Technology has exponentially increased the ease of producing a CD and there has been a flood of new music to the market. Not necessarily to be looked up on as increased competition, but as a larger talent pool as there is plenty of room for great music at the top.  With this, comes an increased amount of responsibility to the artists themselves.  They must now be the artist, the merchandiser, the engineer, the producer, the publicist, the booking agent, the tour manager, etc. In other words, artists' futures and money are in their own hands. 

Reading between the lines? 

If you are not disciplined and expect someone else to do it for you, don't even bother - just stick to playing at family get-togethers.  If you work hard enough and put forth the effort, you might catch someone with influences ear, but the key is to NOT count on that.

My suggestion is simple. If your fire burns strong with the desire to create music and you are willing to put in the work, then start prepping for the marathon: practice your instrument; rehearse with your band (there is a difference); work your social media (Facebook, Twitter, Reverb Nation); go see other shows (support your local peers); network with your peers, venue owners, local periodicals, studios and radio stations (both traditional FM Stations and internet); above all, have fun and make sure your fans know how much you love and appreciate them. Other than what I just listed, I suggest you become involved with local music organizations, performance writing organizations (BMI, ASCAP), local Grammy chapter conventions and learn about the industry. Educate yourself on what you are getting yourself into.

Years back, when I realized how difficult it was to get people to respond, I created my own reality. I call it Maurice the Fish Records.  A family of like-minded artists who adhere to everything I've written about today.

If you hit a wall, be creative and CREATE YOUR OWN REALITY!  Be the game changer. ...

Weekend hip-hop shows

CAM THE VIKING: He joins Cauze N Efekt, Akeem, 36uh0! and DMT Friday, Nov. 23 at The Midnight Sun Performance Space in Olympia.

KEEP THE DRIVE ALIVE >>>

Starting the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, it is basically one big awesome weekend. Wednesday night is big party-time because no one works on Thursday, No Thankstaking Day, then it is the weekend. So what to do? Here ya'll go:

One of the more popular new acts of this year is Sky Pilot. It just dropped a brand new video titled, "Everywall." The video looks awesome, and it is bound to have every adolescent emo-listening suburbanite going bananas. Sky Pilot is a multi-genre music outfit. It can do hip-hop and rock music. This song definitely falls into the rock category - but Preston, the lead vocalist, can and does rap pretty darn well in other songs. Ya can catch Sky Pilot and all of its freshman buzz Friday night in Seattle at the Hard Rock Café. Tickets are $10 advanced and $15 at the door. The Hard Rock Café in Seattle is a quality place to catch a show.

Maybe ya would rather drive south than north. OK, that is fine too. In that case, ya can see Cam the Viking, the busiest man in Gonzo as of late. He'll be rocking The Midnight Sun Performance Space Friday night in Olympia. The Midnight Sun is a classic Olympia all-ages, D.I.Y. venue. It does not get more Oly than that place. So go soak-up the 360 hip-hop vibes.

Maybe ya should do it true Oly style and crash on someone's couch down there that night, because Saturday night, ya can catch the other busy man from the Gonzo Family, Abom the Kid. He'll be performing at the Track House in Oly. This is a birthday house party - more of that Oly' vibe. Call Remex for directions, (360) 480-8179.

That is all for 253 hip-hop this weekend. So, drive safe, for-real. There are still lots of drunk, turkey-induced sleepy drivers out there. Peaces My Family!

COMMENT OF THE DAY: Support local musicians

ONLINE CHATTER >>>

Yesterday's comment of the day comes Tom Montante in response to the South Sound Sidekick column — specifically Raymond Hayden's advice to new musicians and what to expect from the modern day music business.

Tom writes,

Being the owner of a small venue in Tacoma (Mandolin Cafe) for a short time, I can appreciate what Ray is saying. It takes hard work and a desire for the music. Tacoma has a budding music industry with many local artists who love what they do and do what they love. The support of the community is essential to the continued growth of all of these fine artists. Thank you Ray for being such a large part of the growth of the music industry locally.

5 Things To Do Today: Shift Your Shopping Tour, Polar Plaza plus, Love Tacoma Lane, One Love Island Fest and more ...

LITHIUM LOVE: You know Tacoma's button people will be at the Gritty City Gift Fair.

SATURDAY, NOV. 24, 2012 >>>

1. Art Bus and GoLocal team up to make shopping local this holiday season fun. Shift Your Shopping Tour is a self-directed passport stamping adventure that begins at the Market on Market (special Holiday Market today!) and ends at the Gritty City Gift Fair. You will pick up your passport at Market on Market where the MOM Holiday Flea Market is happening from noon to 4 p.m. You take the passport with you as you visit participating stores listed on the passport. If you make a purchase of $5 or more at a participating store, the cashier will give you a stamp (or sticker) on your passport. When you finish, you will drop this passport off inside 906 Broadway at the Gritty City Gift Fair before 9 p.m.

2. As you know the Franciscan Polar Plaza outdoor ice skating rink is open to those who want to travel in circles from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. What you might not know is today is its official grand opening celebration, which means extra fun and excitement. From 4-4:30 p.m. the Kent Valley Figure Skating Club will go off on the ice. At 5 p.m. the horns will trumpet as Tacoma Mayor Marilyn Strickland, Director of Tacoma Art Museum Stephanie A. Stebich and President of St. Joseph Medical Center Syd Bersante say a few words, mostly about the awesomeness of Polar Plaza. 

3. The Weekly Volcano loves Tacoma. That's a fact. We don't love it enough to add it to our name. Weekly Volcano Loves Tacoma doesn't make sense for us from a business standpoint. For other organizations it makes complete sense, such as Tacoma Is For Lovers, Love Tacoma and Me Love You Tacoma Long Time, although we don't have confirmation the last one list truly exists. Apparently, there's a new organization in that loves Tacoma to the point of adding its feelings to its name - Love Tacoma Lane. According to its Facebook, Love Tacoma Lane will bring love, romance and some landscapers to "forgotten places" in Tacoma.  Babe Lehrer and Seong Shin will kick off Love Tacoma Lane at 6 p.m. at Amocat Café. Come learn about the new organization and help spread the love.

4. The One Love Island Fest will bring a little warmth and reggae to Tacoma's Temple Theater beginning at 7 p.m. Ben Alaalatoa of BTOA Entertainment has gathered Fiji from Honolulu, Bonafide from Las Vegas, Two Story Zori out of Seattle and Tacoma's own Island Trybe featuring PO Boxx together for a night of exploring all facets of reggae.

5. Puyallup old school blues rockers SweetKiss Momma are headed to Nashville to record its sophomore album with accomplished producer Ken Coomer. It's a big deal. Louie G's Pizzeria thinks so too. It's hosts a send-off party tonight, allowing the band to rock the all-ages crowd before it rocks Coomer's face off. It's a free show, but throw several bucks into the hat to help make SweetKiss Momma's journey possible. The Lush Tones will open the show at 8 p.m.
