TACOMA PREFUNK MONDAY, JUNE 26 2017: Wayne’s World and the All Stars
PREFUNK: In news that will simultaneously make you feel ancient and also burst out an inevitable “excellent,” Wayne’s World, the acme of SNL skit-to-film adaptations turned 25 this year, and to celebrate, Peaks and Pints while run the soundtrack through our jukebox for this week’s SudsPop music and craft beer happening at 7 p.m. tonight. The 1992 film, of course, starred Mike Myers and Dana Carvey as hesher-meets-slacker best buds Wayne Campbell and Garth Algar, who broadcast a no-budget cable-access show from Wayne’s basement in Aurora. All this time later, it still holds up, so we’ll toss it on our big screen. You may give it the toast it deserves with a Hi-Fi Brewing Headphone hoppy wheat with sweet lemon and juicy orange riding on soft wheat. Party on! Peaks and Pints, Tacoma
5 P.M. PARKWAY RANDALL: Seattle native Josh Pfriem began homebrewing while at Western Washington University in his early 20s then moved to Utah as a ski bum. He worked at Utah Brewers Cooperative for a few years before moving back to his old college town of Bellingham to brew at Chuckanut Brewery, where he helped win the Great American Beer Festival Small Brewpub of the Year in 2009. He moved to Hood River to work at Full Sail but left in December 2011 to open Pfriem Family Brewing in August 2012. He made a delicious IPA that the Parkway Tavern will run through a Randall of mystery ingredients tonight. Parkway Tavern, Tacoma
9 P.M. SQUEAK AND SQUAWK: Throughout the five-day Squeak and Squawk Indie Music Festival, bands from all over the Northwest and beyond have dropped in on Tacoma to unleash their magic. It’s been a jaw dropping and inspiring mix, and just the sort of eclectic and talented vibe the brains behind Squeak and Squawk were going for. Tonight marks the closing night of the music festival, which has traditionally been an “All Stars” outing of talent jamming on the stage. According to closing night hype, “This is the night when we relax after several days of great music with some of our friends for a free night of entertainment.” Nice. The New Frontier lounge, Tacoma
Oh, to get yourself properly trained for tonight’s SudsPop enjoy a few “Bohemian Rhapsody” versions, cause we’re going to be rocking the hell out of that come the opening credits. Some inspiration …
The dude who was so drunk he was arrested, but somehow remembered all the words in the back of a cop car:
A lesson from the Muppets!
