In the spirit of the can’t-miss Cathedrals: Tacoma series of alternative music concerts, the Broadway Center for the Performing Arts is presenting BARE Tacoma, a special holiday concert and a cappella evening featuring singers from many local indie bands. This first show (of what is hoped to become an annual holiday tradition) will feature Shenandoah Davis, Sean Nelson (of Harvey Danger), Tacoma School of the Arts Choir, Noah Gundersen, Le Wrens, Luke Stevens, Goldfinch, Colin Reynolds, Elk & Boar, Hannalee, Eternal Fair, and more! They’ll be singing their own songs, covers, and holiday classics without instruments – a cappella and bare.

BARE Tacoma invites you to see some of your favorite vocalists from the region’s indie music scene put away their instruments and simply sing for you. Get ready for clear, pure beauty in the warm acoustics and welcoming space of historic Immanuel Presbyterian, a North End church for 124 years. This Mission-style church, laden with stained glass is the (unorthodox!) site of one of Tacoma’s most compelling new music series, Cathedrals: Tacoma.
