TACOMA PREFUNK WEDNESDAY, JUNE 6 2018: Avery Plank’d Imperial Porter and Bradley Palermo

7 P.M. I CAN ONLY IMAGINE: The contemporary Christian hit yields a feature about a young man who loses his father at age 18. Suck it, “Christmas Shoes”! All you got was a TV movie.

8 P.M. BRADLEY PALERMO: LA singer/songwriter Bradley Palermo championed the slogan, “folk as fuck,” so of course he’s playing The Valley tonight.

Some call his music “Hank III meets Bright Eyes.” Stop by Peaks and Pints for an Avery Plank’d then call his music whatever you like. The Royal Pain, Adam France and Steven Cole Smith open.
