On New Year’s Eve I’ll be performing again at First Night Tacoma! I performed there last year (you can see pics here) at the historic Pantages Theater and that’s the same venue I’ll be at this year.
If don’t know about First Night, many big cities have them and here’s a quick description of what they are about:
First Night is a North American artistic and cultural celebration on New Year’s Eve, taking place from afternoon until midnight. Some cities have all their events during the celebration outside, but some cities have events that are hosted indoors by organizations in the city, such as churches and theaters. Since it happens on New Year’s Eve, First Night celebrations are actually held on the last night of the old year. First Night celebrates a community’s local culture, often featuring music, dance, comedy, art, fireworks and, in some cities, ice sculptures and parades.
I’ve performed at different First Night events in different cities for probably the last 8 or 9 years and they are the best! They are a family friendly alcohol free arts festival. As a performer I dislike doing my show at drinking new year’s events, they always end up as train wrecks…but not First Night!
