Graham Nash – An Intimate Evening of Songs and Stories @ Pantages Theater
Sep 29 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

TICKETS: $29, $49, $69, $85

The legendary Graham Nash, a founding member of both The Hollies and Crosby, Stills & Nash, is a two-time Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee who has seen rock history unfold at some of its seminal moments – from the launch of The British Invasion to the birth of the Laurel Canyon movement a year later. An extraordinary Grammy Award-winning renaissance artist – and self-described “simple man” – Nash was inducted twice into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, for his work with CSN and his work as a solo artist, beginning with two landmark albums, Songs For Beginners and Wild Tales.

The original classic union of Crosby, Stills & Nash (& Young) lasted but twenty months. Yet their songs are embedded in our DNA, starting with Nash’s “Marrakesh Express,” “Pre-Road Downs” and “Lady of the Island,” from the first Crosby, Stills & Nash LP (1969). On CSNY’s Déjà Vu (1970), Nash’s iconic “Teach Your Children” and “Our House” (for Joni Mitchell) beseeched us to hold love tightly, to fend off the madness that was on its way.

Towering above virtually all that Graham Nash has accomplished in his long and multi-faceted career, stands the litany of songs that he has written and introduced to the soundtrack of our lives for nearly six decades.

A Structured Introduction to the Art of Aikido
October 6th – November 10th
Thursdays 6:30-7:45 pm

“In the beginner’s mind there are many possibilities, but in the expert’s mind there are few. ” – Shunryu Suzuki

Always wanted to train in a martial art? Looking for a fun way to stay fit? Needing some self-defense skills? Interested in diving deeper into the art of movement? The Aikido Beginners Series is for you!
The Beginner Series provides a structured introduction to the dynamic martial art of aikido – a great foundation begin your practice. In this 6-week series, we’ll cover the history and philosophy of aikido, dojo etiquette, safe falling and rolling, basic responses to a variety of strikes and grabs, and introduce aikido weapons work. Designed as a jumping off point for regular dojo membership, participants can join regular dojo classes at any time – before, during, or after the series.
No experience or equipment is necessary. Wear loose clothes that cover the knees and elbows and bring an open mind. A woman-led dojo, Tacoma Aikikai is committed to fostering an inclusive and supportive space, mutually respecting people of all race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, background, faith, age, and ability.
Cost: $100. Sliding scale fees available and no one turned away for lack of funds.
Eligibility: Adults and teens age 16+.
Space is limited – please register early.

What is Aikido?
Aikido is a modern martial art developed in Japan. Known as “the way of harmony”, aikido neutralizes an opponent’s attacks through joint locks and throws. Through sincere training, students of all ages and abilities find confidence in conflict resolution, improved fitness and flexibility, and an overall sense of well-being.

Who is Tacoma Aikikai?
Tacoma Aikikai, rooted in the lineage and discipline of Japanese martial traditions, has offered community-centered and woman-led aikido martial arts instruction since 2016. Instructors Ea Murphy and Eric Gillet have decades of experience training and teaching aikido across cultures and continents.
