Y’all. Saturday night was amazing. It was such a good time.
Honestly, I don’t really know what else to say. Two full days later, and I’m still at a loss of words.
So let me just say this: Thanks.
Thanks to the kinds folks at the Double Wide for being such great hosts and letting us take over their space for the evening. They couldn’t have been more accommodating.
Thanks to all of the performers — Lizzie Boredom, Bobby Sessions, Medicine Man Revival and the collaborative Bluelion project between Sealion and Blue, The Misfit. Y’all were incredible. Each and every one of y’all offered a standout performance for a different reason — Lizzie Boredom for just being total badasses, Bobby Sessions for putting on a rap clinic and somehow performing with almost every band on the bill, Medicine Man Revival for lifting everyone’s spirits with their impassioned display, and Bluelion for showing everyone that Dallas music can not only play well together, but that it can reach new echelons by building bridges instead of fences. Seriously, check out the insane energy in this clip of Bluelion covering N.E.R.D’s “Lapdance” to close the night:
Thank you to the Easy Slider Truck for coming through and feeding us with some impossibly delicious hamburger sliders.
Also? Thank you to the business card-printing homies at Print Peppermint for sponsoring the party and helping make it all possible, and to the homies at The Foto Booth as well for helping people take home their memories from the evening.
But, most of all, thanks to hundreds (!) of y’all who came out and to you all who read this site with even the slightest bit of regularity. As I noted a couple of times from the Double Wide stage between bad jokes about hipsters and local bands, we wouldn’t have lasted five months, let alone five year, without your undying support. You literally are our lifeblood, and you keep us going every day. We love you all from the bottom of our hearts, and we appreciate you more than you probably know.
Seriously: Thank you to everyone who Saturday night possible. It was a night we won’t soon forget — and a night we’re probably going to spend the rest of this site’s lifespan trying to replicate.
Here’s hoping we one day can.
In the meantime, you can check out Karlo X. Ramos’ pictures from the night above, and you can head to this here Facebook album to see all of The Foto Booth’s grabs from the night, too.
