well, hello there.
holy moly, have we sure missed you! we’ve got some six-feet-wide auras of good vibes we’ve been charging up for the last few months, and we’d give anything to share them with our favorite people from our favorite city in all the land.
so hey... let’s hang!
our senior v.p. of outdoor affairs has secured lovely mixed-use picnic digs with plenty of space on what conveniently happens to be the longest day of the year in what feels like the longest year of our lives. we’re packing up the practice PAs and power strips, we’ve chucked our turntables into the back of the jeep, and soon we’ll be spinning fuzzy, sun-kissed jams in the great wide open as the late afternoon turns to dusk then to evening and then to night.
in addition to great music, vast space, and ample parking, we’ll also be providing a limited complimentary selection of cold beverages to quench your thirst (sponsored by our dear friends at Mixtape). so that means all YOU need to bring are:
- friends and/or family
- your own food
- a few lofty expectations
- maybe a blanket
we can’t wait to engage in appropriately-distanced analog exchanges with partially-covered well-meaning well-wishers using primarily just our eyeballs and cheek bones! and all on the first day of summer, no less… the fabled “summer solstice,” where everything magic takes place over the course of one long day, and at least half of your dreams are bound to come true.
so assemble a team of your favorite internet friends and distant blood relatives and form your “common group” irl! we cordially invite you to join us for a celebration of summer and the opportunity to see what your loved ones look like when they really need haircuts.
everyone is welcome, and all are invited, however we do have a strict limited capacity! the “STRANGEWAYS" team are fully prepared to adhere to the issued coronavirus guidelines of the CDC, PA Department of Health, and Allegheny County Health Department, so we kindly ask that all attendees please RSVP by sending an email to:
that way you'll get all the important deets, pro-tips, and secret virtual handshake instructions, but more importantly, we’ll also have the requisite guest list and necessary contact info needed in case of emergency.
flatten the curve! fight the power! all you need is love! just can’t get enough! we hope you’re as excited as we are, and we look forward to seeing you all in the flesh very soon. xoxo
