Snowing you say? Won’t stop the ladies of Lux Arati! Here’s a short recap of some of the fun we had Fall/Winter 2013/14. Video and Photography contributors credited and hyperlinked below. Please check them out! Hire them if you’re looking for good people! We ❤ everyone who helps us gather evidence that this crazy group of ladies exist.
While we were putting our recent promo together, we realized we had enough coverage to cut together a whole performance! We shot this on a rooftop on the edge of Fishtown, in Philadelphia, right at sunset. (Thanks to VJ Kevlar for the roof access!) The song is a remix of Flight Facilities – Crave You, from one of our performance mixes by the lovely Foxy La Tigre. The video was directed by Chris Palo. Enjoy!
Thanks to everyone who came out to the Rotunda! It was a fun night, with absolutely beautiful weather (a rarity for our shows, ha ha!) and a great crowd. One of our friends, Reagan Lam, a photographer who takes some great shots, came by and got some amazing images of the gig.
I think one of my favorites is the one of Andria with her staff… great shot for her first gig with us! Thanks Reagan!
Oh what fun! We were asked to put on a show for the annual Krampus festival in Northern Liberties. I’d heard about the event on NPR last year, so was pretty excited. We couldn’t put on a full Lux Arati show due to a whole bunch of schedule conflicts, but put on a bit of a throw-together display with the help of wonderful Brad.
The kids were great and the costumes were amazing. There is a flickr photo pool with some great shots. One of my favorites is this one. That little kid in the bottom right was adorable. Jexi had just done some hooping, and her hoop was lying on the ground next to the stage. I saw the whole thought process as the kid stared at the hoop, inching forward towards it. “Magic came from that… I want to understand how it works!” As the kid leaned down to touch the torch (long cooled, it would have been fine) Jexi pulled the hoop away. Rather than being mad, the kid just looked up slightly disappointed, sad that the chance to touch the magic hoop was taken away. The whole thing was rather adorable.
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 Swedish 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!
