Truck Themed Hipster Dance Party

Sometimes, you just gotta leave the house. For me, that’s normally due to a desperate need of groceries. But last night, I left for an entirely foreign purpose: Hipster Dance Party.

My good friend and designer, Lana, invited me. Since I had worked exclusively on editing and writing for about twelve hours a day for many days, it seemed like a good time to step away from the computer and try to remember that a world exists outside of Bitlather Chronicles.

Hipster Dance Party is an event held at the Brillo Box, and last night’s theme was monster trucks. Lest you think Hipster Dance Party would be an apathetic affair, some photographic evidence to the contrary:

 

 

That giant truck cut-out had random stuff projected on it: the desert at night, grumpy cat, video games, videos of monster trucks. I’m not much of a dancer, so this provided entertainment while I broke out the same two moves all night.

 

 

Yesterday, being the day before Valentine’s Day, someone was handing out valentines. She wore a hood, like, a hood unconnected to her shirt, with monster trucks on it and large chains weighing it down. She was so dedicated to the theme, even the valentines were monster truck related. Thanks for the valentine, Lazer Crunk!

 

 

Some other fun tidbits from last night: the lights on the walls all had googly eyes, and the hand stamp they used reads Those who have eyes are divine.

I wanted to add a logo, so I turned to our friend, Lana Hayes. Read on
