Arts & Entertainment: Freighthouse Square hosts series of live music events

Entertainment company BNW Global has formed a new community partnership with Tacoma’s historic Freighthouse Square and The Gap at Tacoma Mall. Beginning July 21 at 7 p.m. in Foss Hall at Freighthouse Square, BNW will host a series of live music events throughout the summer including live music performances, industry networking, music seminars, workshops and youth talent auditions. In addition, for each event BNW Global will be raising awareness of key social causes throughout the local community and beyond.

On July 21 international recording artist Shyan Selah returns home to the Northwest from recording his latest album project, “City of Angels,” in Los Angeles. On that day he will launch the viral release of his first single "Pink Butterfly" as well as honor those who are in the fight against breast cancer. Selah will be performing with his band, The Republic of Sound, and will take time to honor breast cancer survivors in the community as he prepares for the retail release of his single in October during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

“Freighthouse Square is very happy to be working with BNW Global to create and host some very community oriented events here. We are extremely pleased to support the release of Shyan Selah’s ‘Pink Butterfly’ and the occasion to honor those who are fighting Breast Cancer,” said Lonee Peschon who manages and handles commercial leasing for Freighthouse Square.

Lance Azucena is director of promotions for BNW Global. “With what started as a series of daytime performances catered to serenading the great people of the Tacoma Dome District, BNW Global is happy to call this wonderful area its new home,” he said. “We are excited and ready to provide this city the very best in live music entertainment and welcome everyone to come join us.”

This event is free to the public. To learn more about how to get involved with this dynamic new movement for Tacoma's artistic community contact Candice Richardson at (206) 707-1378 or at
