This has been an amazing summer! This started out as a mix tape (yes, literally a tape) called “Bright Radio.” A mix of the rock I had grew up on, around my time in high school. I love and adore Hip Hop music and its culture, but I thought, "how cool would it be to have a party with all 90s rock music." This started out as just a back yard party and and idea, it ended up being one of the best summers I’ve had in a long time!
I would like to thank my partner Alex Grubard f...or believing in the idea and meeting with me LITERALLY every week since June! You are hilarious, and you’re going to go SUPER far in comedy, and I look forward to working on other projects with you.
I would also like to thank Dave Kasper and Pabst Blue Ribbon for really believing and supporting this project. We literally could not have done this without your help.
Thank you so much to all the venues that helped with our preliminary rounds:
