Photoshoot with Lindsey Tweed

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

After performing in front of the boathouse at Glow in the Park (some good photos of the event are here) we decided to walk over to the pavilion to do a little photo shoot with the lovely Lindsey Tweed. How rare, we were all in the same costume at the end of the night! A beautiful night, and a wonderful location, it was an opportunity not to be missed. She got some great shots. We even bullied our steadfast safties to jump in on the shoot. ­čÖé Thanks Lindsey!! (Clickable photos after the jump)

Battleship PEX

A few of the ladies you know and love from Lux Arati (as well as some new members that we can’t wait to introduce to you!) entertained the crowd at the 7th annual PEX Halloween party, hosted at the Battleship NJ. The weather was beautiful, and it seemed like a fun time was had by all. I’d highly┬árecommend┬áyou click on the picture over the the left… Xtiina is doing a great job representing the Luxies! One day we’ll all get to wear the costumes we made for the fated PEX Summer Fest… one day….

What a fun night!

Wow, what a fun crowd. Glow in the Park was a super fun night. The performance space was beautiful, the weather lovely and the crowd awesome. FDR Park is such a gem hidden down by the highways in South Philly. We performed in front of the boathouse, with the┬áSwedish American Museum lit up behind us. Later in the evening we walked down to the pavilion and took some photos with Lindsey, a friend of Lux Arati. I’m sure there were tons of photos snapped during the performance, but so far I haven’t been able to track any down. There was also a camera guy from CBS3, but I don’t know if they did a story, I haven’t been able to find anything about that, either. If anyone does come across it, please let us know!

This was the first time they’ve held this event in FDR, and I hope they have it next year, we’d love to come back and dazzle the crowd again!

Glow in the Park

Love the Philly parks? Love Lux Arati? Combine the two! We’ve been asked to perform at the Glow-in-the-Park event on Thursday, October 25th. There’ll be a band and some lovely scenery, and we’ll be spinning fire around 7:20 PM. Join us and help support the park! Here’s the write-up:

The Magic Garden

Well, the night started out pretty rainy but by the time we were set to perform, the rain had stopped and the crowd was ready. I always love performing at places where we get to take people by surprise… the PEX folks rented out the North Shore Beach Club for the Magic Garden party, but since it was last minute they were sharing the space with a birthday party from earlier in the night. Must have been a fun birthday for them!
