Put it on your calendar now – the 2012 Fall Free for All festival, organized by Tacoma’s Broadway Center for Perfoming Arts September 21-22, is bigger and better than ever, with headline acts like singer-songwriter Vicci Martinez and kindie rockers Recess Monkey. Best of all, it’s still all free.
A teaser for the Broadway Center’s new season and an enticement to get new theater-goers downtown, the Fall Free for All was a success last year, though Sunday saw far fewer crowds and a less festive atmosphere. This year, though, the headline act Vicci Martinez is sure to draw crowds, and the 50-plus acts range from kid-rock to dance to ukuleles. Here are some of the highlights:
Martinez will play 9 p.m. Saturday at the Pantages after a musical lineup that includes Kelli Shaefer and Killeye Candy; Recess Monkey play 3 p.m. Saturday at the Pantages; the Double Shot Theater Festival runs 7 p.m. Saturday and 1 p.m. Sunday; a dance festival begins 3 p.m.
Free wristbands are needed for entry, you can get them via email registration at broadwaycenter.org. All events happen at the Rialto and Pantages Theaters, Theater on the Square, Urban Grace Church and other venues around 901 Broadway, Tacoma.
