We’re back with the second installment in the Get Familiar series! This time we had the pleasure of sitting down with two super cool teams out of Missouri that go by DownRight Entertainment and Unknown Frequency. They’re doing a lot of awesome things out in the MidWest and they set aside some time to talk to us about their next party, Positive Vibrations.
Obviously the music lineup of a show is important but so is the art aspect and these cats nailed both. How could I forget that beautiful purple Hennesy rig that will also be in the building. A1 sound, with next level art and good music from start to finish. What more could you ask for? If you’re headed to Astral Lights next weekend this is the perfect opportunity for you to get free tickets to a gangster show. Not sure what to expect? Settle in, press play and get familiar!
How did Positive Vibrations start?
We’ve been trying to have Chris out for over a year. Beautiful live art paired with forward-thinking music on a high-quality system is never a bad time. We’ve always liked having live art at our events. Whether it’s live painters, VJs, or performance art. Chris Dyer has always been one of our personal favorite artists… so it’s only fitting to have Chris on the first Positive Vibrations event.
What made you guys want to start throwing shows?
An overall love for the music & community. There was always a ton of artists that other promoters weren’t bringing to the city, so we decided to take it upon ourselves to bring the music WE wanted. We wanted to bring music that we love to the people that we love at a consumer-friendly price, always providing the best experience possible!
Favorite event y’all have thrown thus far?
That’s really hard because we enjoy each event so much, but we’d have to say Burbs Music & Arts Festival. It was our largest and most complex operation to date and we still somehow managed to have fun ourselves!
What are you guys doing differently than all the other production companies?
We are only focusing on artists that we ourself enjoy. A lot of companies will book events solely based on hype and ticket sales. Our goal is to bring underground artists, many of which are our close friends, to the forefront and expose our patrons to new music and art.
Artists you guys would love to have out?
We are huge fans of the up and coming halftime and weird scenes. Deep dubstep is also on fire at the moment… We’d really like to have Mickman come to town soon! We are also closely following VCTRE, TLZMN, Smigonaut, Black Carl, etc… these guys are on a different level!
Where do you see Positive Vibrations in 5 years?
In 5 years we see this event in multiple cities, where we could collaborate with like-minded production companies in other markets and keep on spreading positivity.
