EVENT RECAP: A Backyard Show in Burbank 4/3/16

words, photos and video by Shabnam Ferdowsi

Sunday was such a beautiful afternoon. A ton of people gathered in a backyard in Burbank (Thanks so much Dakota and housemates!) for live music, face painting, watermelon slices, art, crafting, and good vibes. The shirt Jenay and I made for this Hours Lost x Beating Lights collab was on sale at her pop up table, the bands were all fantastic, and the artists were so swell to have a part of the team. 

I absolutely love putting on backyard shows. I get to meet so many people and have real good conversations with them that I normally wouldn't be able to at say a regular music venue. My favorite part comes when I get to take a step back and let the magic happen in front of me: people making new friends, dancing, smiling, making art, and having a good time. 

As always, shoutout to the bands and brands who made the day so lovely:

:MUSIC::
Naked Walrus
Attic Empire
Beachwood Coyotes

Sydney Blake


::ARTISTS::

And of course, so much love to my best friend Jenay Ross, founder of Hours Lost, and Dakota Gartner (Naked Walrus) for being my dream team in putting this one together. 

Cheers, friends!
