TACOMA PREFUNK FRIDAY, JUNE 2 2017: Monkey Paw This One Goes to Eleven and Mirrorgloss

PREFUNK: Monkey Paw Pub & Brewery has swung into Peaks and Pints with its tail wrapped around a keg of This One Goes to Eleven triple IPA. The San Diego brewery collaborated with their “wonderfully drunken friends from Jackson Hole, WY, Melvin Brewing” on this 11 percent triple IPA with 11 malts, 11 hops and 1,100 total pounds of grain for dank tropical goodness. It’s pouring from Peaks and Pints Western red cedar tap log. Peaks and Pints, Tacoma

11 A.M. THE ROAD: E9 Brewery and de Garde collaborated on The Road, a wild ale aged up to two years in oak barrels and dry-hopped, which has been bottled and available at Engine House No. 9 — as well as other de Garde delights — today. Engine House No. 9, Tacoma

7:30 P.M. THE MAN WHO SHOT LIBERTY VALANCE: Young British playwright Jethro Compton may be just the one we’ve been waiting for. The one who might resuscitate — nay, resurrect — the moribund, neglected theater genre known as the “oater,” a.k.a., the “cowboy” play. If you like westerns, saddle up and gallop over to Tacoma Little Theatre’s stage adaptation of The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance — a tale of love, hope, and revenge set against the vicious backdrop of a lawless society. Tacoma Little Theatre, Tacoma

9 P.M. MIRRORGLOSS: Mirrorgloss will unleash new tracks after electro afro nu wave band Future Shock and the smooth dark wave hip-hop sounds of Keif Urban do their thing. Half Pint Pizza Pub, Tacoma
