Tacoma’s own good-time band, The Fun Police, kick off the City of Tacoma Main Stage entertainment at 9:30 on the main stage at the city’s famous, family friendly, alcohol free First Night Celebration. With seemingly few in Tacoma sorry to see 2009 quickly fading in the rearview mirror, the hometown heroes of musical public safety will perform their genre defying act in celebration of an upcoming year that, God help us all, has to be better for the Tacoma area than this one.
Skillful musical artists of slice of life tales wrapped in easy to sing and dance along with melodies, The Fun Police, tackling diverse topics including economic hard times, interpersonal relationships, running afoul of the law, and globe-trotting adventures. However, their repertoire shines optimistically with tongue and cheek lyrics, and unexpected rhythm change-ups that will have you dancing and celebrating in the early evening like it was midnight.
Get your pre-funk on and start your First Night adventure with The Fun Police, 9:30 – 10:30 PM on the First Night Main Stage, New Year’s Eve between 9th and 11th on Broadway in downtown Tacoma. Be certain to dress for the outside street venue.
