The 9th Northwest Biennial at Tacoma Art Museum is one of the more impressive biennials they’ve had, with a wide range of very intriguing art. The show closes today. Read the full review here.


In the early ‘70s, a Japanese musician by the name of Daisuke Inoue invented the first ever Karaoke machine. The name Karaoke comes from a combination of the word Kara-meaning empty and Okesutora- meaning orchestra. However, even Daisuke’s Sadist ass couldn’t have fathomed what happens every Monday night at Jazzbones. The ringing backup music has been replaced with a real band; and the cheesy video is gone, because you are the show now, baby. You sing on the stage with a live band before a live, dancing audience — talent or not!
