Celestial Vibe

By: Laurie Gallardo

Take a deep breath, and send this one out to the stars…

There are few experiences more profound than an incredible live music performance beneath a breathtaking night sky. Both Alex Maas (The Black Angels, MIEN) and Devin James Fry (Name Sayers) understand and deeply appreciate such extraordinary, multi-sensory magic. It’s what inspired them to collaborate on a live music event happening tonight at the J. Lorraine Ghost Town, 14219 Litting Rd., in Manor, TX.

The evening starts  at 7 p.m. with an exploration of the ghost town itself, followed by stargazing led by the awesome educators of Starry Sky Austin. Then, prepare yourself for a mind-blowing set by Name Sayers at 9 p.m., and a performance by Alex Maas at 10:15 p.m., featuring stunning visuals by Mesmerize.

You’ll quickly understand why this music and the celestial skies above are a perfect match. So recommended.
