FINALLY we had a nice two days of actual spring, and the heroes of Left Rite jumped on the chance to throw the first park party of the season. It was a fantastic way to kick off the Spring season after the longest winter ever.
Saturday was the last day of Mercury being in retrograde and the weather turned out perfect for an outdoor party (considering this awful weather following this weekend. Left Rite provided sound reinforcement and had a slew of their resident DJ’s providing the music. Everyone who played was stellar, of course, but Phil Yeah’s set was especially notable for its weird and spooky minimal beats.
What’s nice about park parties is they provide a chance for nightlife fam and otherwise to get together during the daylight hours. A lot of friends brought their beautiful dogs and children, and someone even brought a majestic boa constrictor (still mad I didn’t get a picture). Gotta love seeing all sorts of crews gathering together and contributing positively to the park atmosphere. In general, park parties seem to bring out the most diverse group of people. Whether you’re on OG burner, a dark techno bb’s, or just looking for something free that the whole family can enjoy, park parties are unique in that they truly are for all types of communities.
The party ended unusually early, understandably so. The Shakedown with Till Von Sein was just one of the many parties happening that night. I made it to exactly zero Saturday night events because day drinking and sun equals an early bedtime for me.
Perhaps we will see the spring weather again soon, and when we do look out for more park parties as well as the return of Fountain Green! Catch ya in the sun, fam.
