Julia Massey in: Teapot Pop Extravaganza

Julia Massey & The Five-Finger Discount return to Tacoma this weekend! Saturday the 11th they’re going to be playing at Bob’s Java Jive down in the Nalley Valley. It’s the building shaped teapot (or coffee pot or kettle, depending on your perspective) that rests in the middle of the industrial district. It’s also a bar:

It is pretty famous, I guess, though I can’t speak to its worldwide fame. For one, there aren’t all that many teapot-shaped or coffee-pot-shaped or kettle-shaped buildings left in the states. Roadside America has an excellent curation of them. Bob’s Java Jive was also featured in the films I Love You To Death (where two characters hire a hitman in it) and Say Anything (I don’t remember how it’s featured in that movie).

But it’s probably most famous for being only about 2 miles from my house! So you best believe we’ve found a babysitter and are gonna head down there this Saturday night to hear some sweet, sweet, JM+FFD musics. SO CAN YOU!
