TACOMA PREFUNK TUESDAY, JAN.16 2018: Lost Coast Tangerine and Hedy Lamarr
PREFUNK: “Tangerine, Tangerine, living reflection from a dream” so says Led Zeppelin. We have no idea what that means, but we do know this: a delicious tangerine craft beer is currently pouring from Peaks and Pints’ Western red cedar tap log. For those of you who want a light and cheerful beer, Lost Coast’s Tangerine Wheat is your best bet. This candy-scented wheat beer is crisp, clean and refreshing.
1:30 AND 6:15P.M. BOMBSHELL — THE HEDY LAMARR STORY: Hedy Lamarr, born Hedwig Kiesler, was known as the world’s most beautiful woman during her time as a Hollywood actress from the late 1930s to the ‘50s. Her looks led to a lack of substantial roles and a trend of only being cast as a pretty face. Alexandra Dean’s enticing documentary Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story portrays a different, and often overlooked, side of Lamarr. Catch it twice today at The Grand Cinema.
8 P.M. NESC OPEN MIC: With a timeless vocal delivery only matched by her engaging stage presence, Kim Archer has been pleasing live music fans in our area since 2004. Archer’s powerful voice a la Janis Joplin and Chaka Khan gels perfectly with the sonic buzz of the guitar and groove from her talented band. She commands the stage playing her own original songs rooted in old school soul, funk and classic rock, sultry blues and ballads while remaining a master at giving choice cover tunes the “Kim Archer treatment.” Archer hosts the weekly open mic at North End Social Club. It’s where Tacoma’s talent performs.
