Ever reminisce about early college days or daydream about being nineteen or twenty and only having the heartbreak be your biggest issue (naive to the adult life ahead of you filled with bills and responsibilities)? The most recent Sofar concert that I hosted on Friday, January 27th featured three amazing young female artists who set the mood sending Austin music lovers back in time while listening to love ballads and songs about self discovery.
My studio was bustling with movement and eagerness as Sofar Sounds organized the stage area and set up multiple cameras to record the event - you read that right, they filmed in my studio *internal happy scream*. If the amount of gear wasn't exciting, having Goodnight Loving vodka setting up a bar for complimentary drinks upped the ante! Serving a thirst quenching signature drink of early grey tea, lemon, and simple syrup with Goodnight Loving vodka had everyone going back for seconds of this light and refreshing cocktail.

Once again, I raffled off a $100 gift card towards my original work to give away to one of the lucky attendees who signed up for my mailing list during the event. Jack Z. was the lucky recipient who visited the gallery the following day to cash in on some great pieces!
Want to know when the next gallery concert is?
Due the the secretive nature of Sofar's events, you would have to sign up for my mailing list here for an exclusive invite for shows in my studio and gallery space.
