RECAP: Beating Lights 2017 Kickoff

words and photos by Shab Ferdowsi

2017 could not have kicked off more beautifully. Backyard shows are my favorite because the vibes are truly the best: outdoors under the sun, surrounded by fresh air and PBR, new friends and good music, art and collaboration.

I love filling these events will interactive and immersive details and letting other creatives have fun. Lorna Alkarna drew portraits on a piece of clear plastic and Plantluvr had a tea corner at last Saturday's event, and people had such a fun time with both experiences. The music was hotter than fire thanks to Maddie Ross, Ugly Sweaters, Family Hahas and Death & His Couch Band, all good friends of mine/Beating Lights.  

Beating Lights is my excuse to gather good people and good music all together in one place. The Kickoff party brought so many faces from our little community together, while also introducing new fiends to the mix, and I LOVE seeing the magic unfold in front of me like that.

THANK YOU. The future is already filled with collaboration and adrenaline, and I can't wait to share it all with you.
