Get ready for the love! A show called “Tacoma Love” is coming to Real Art Tacoma Feb. 10. The unique idea for this show is that 10 artists from Tacoma’s music community will perform each other’s songs.
Organized by Kim Archer and Champagne Sunday, the show features a line-up of some of Tacoma’s best-known musicians and bands. In addition to soul and funk vocalist Archer and Champagne Sunday, a two-piece act featuring Jared and Jessi Fredeen, there will be performances by singer-songwriter Angie Lynn; funky jazz soul sister Sotaria; pop acoustic singer-songwriter Kristen Marlo; silver-toned country crooner Jessica Lynne; blues folk-rocker Sister Madame, funk, hip hop dub junkies Power Laces; up-tempo blues picker Forest Beutel and the quirky, colorful band of brothers called Strangely Alright. These artists will be covering each other’s original songs.
Because it is Valentine’s season, this gathering of Tacoma artists will share their original songs and raise money for two non-profit organizations serving some of the most challenged people in our community. Net proceeds from the Tacoma Love Show will be donated to: The Pierce County YWCA, which seeks to transform the lives of domestic violence victims through safety, healing and empowerment, and The Community Resource Center at Lincoln High School, which supports homeless students in Tacoma.
Real Art Tacoma is located at 5412 South Tacoma Way, (next to the Airport Tavern). The show starts at 7 p.m. Tickets to this all-ages show are $25 for adults, $15 for those ages 11 to 18 and free for children 10 and younger.
Limited VIP tickets are available for $40. VIP ticket includes reserved seating, a pre-show party with the artists, a champagne toast, photos with the artists, music swag and more.
