RECAP: Chela + Disco Shrine + Zealyn + Axel Mansoor @ The Hi Hat 8.24.17

words and photos by Shab Ferdowsi

Last night's Beating Lights event was months in the making. Jessica (Disco Shrine) and I booked the event in June, originally with different plans in mind for what the show was going to be. One thing led to another, and we decided it was going to be just a party just for fun. "Fun" was our key word, and once Jess had the vision for what she wanted the event to look and feel like, I let her run with it like wildfire. Last night was exactly what we had hoped for: pure fun, just for the the fun of it. We had vendors selling jewelry, cake and succulents, an arts and crafts table, a huge blacklight installation by Lorna Phone, DJ sets by Blushh (lol hi that's me!) and Girls Gone Vinyl, and killer performances by Chela, Zealyn, Axel Mansoor and Disco Shrine herself. The place was decked out in light up balloons, emoji beach balls, and iridescent streamers. The vibes, as Beating Lights loves to encourage, were so good. 

Community is the people you gather around you, and last night so many good people gathered for the fun of it. :)

Here's a little gallery of photos I took, if you want to peep them. Otherwise, stay tuned, BL has events cooking up for September!
