Conditions Pop Punk Lighting at the Canal Club in Richmond, Virginia

Conditions Anniversary Show

Local pop-punk legends Conditions reunited on the 5th anniversary of their album Florescent Youth. Richmond, Virginia locals that are familiar with the band might have attended their disbandment show at the National in Richmond in July of last year, where The Lighting & Sound Co. provided concert lighting, giving the band a proper send-off. We once again coordinated with Conditions, in association with Syke, on their anniversary show to provide a show four times as big. 

Check out Brandon Hambright’s awesome photography at the Canal Club in Richmond, Virginia!

Tough Mudder, Doswell VA

 

This weekend we’re in Doswell, Virginia at the Meadow Event Park to setup truss features for Tough Mudder. Tough Mudder is an endurance event series in which participants attempt 10 to 12 mile-long (16–19 km) military-style obstacle courses. It was designed and created by two British Harvard Business post-graduates and tests mental as well as physical strength. The main principle of the Tough Mudder revolves around teamwork. The folks over at Tough Mudder contacted us and asked us to build a truss feature for participants to climb. We’re a lighting and sound company, so we are used to putting lights on the truss!

The design of the truss feature was given to us by Tough Mudder, and it was pretty simple. other than the four 45 Degree pieces of 20.5″ Truss that we don’t own, and couldn’t find anywhere to rent. We had to ship some in from Atlanta in order to get the job done! This is a first for us, but not the last time we’ll be working in the mud with these guys.

Save Sweet Briar  

April 30th, 2015

Thursday, we rolled out to Sweet Briar, Virginia to provide lighting and sound for the Sweet Tone’s final concert. The Sweet Tones are a talented a cappella group from Sweet Briar College, and sadly, due to the school closing after this semester, this was their last show. We were honored to be able to provide a memorable last show to these ladies, and really enjoyed working with them to make this show happen.

 

The Lighting and Sound Co. provides lighting, sound, and video for corporate events, weddings, meetings, parties, and many other events, but this was the first rig we’ve setup in a library. The event took place in Sweet Briar College’s Kitty Corbett reading room, and with our LED concert rig we were able to power the entire show off 40 amps, while still making the show pack a punch.

 

Sweet Tones A Capella Group

The Sweet Tones performed everything from their school song to “Blank Space” by Taylor Swift.

 

The Sweet Tones drew quite a crowd, and put on a great show. We send our sympathy and best wishes to everyone with ties to the school during these tough times, and we hope that we were able to help memorialize an event so important to these girls.

Club Lighting: Pierce Fulton at Tucan

We created a club-style light show for Pierce Fulton for his show at El Gran Tucanazo in Richmond, Virginia. While club lighting isn’t our main focus as a business, Richmond is such a small town that it’s hard to avoid having an install in at least one club.

Opening acts warming up the crowd for Pierce Fulton,  Richmond, VA

Pierce made his first real breakthrough at the age of 18 with his first 3 track EP titled “Pardon My French”. You may have seen the “making of” video where some pretty unconventional sounds were sampled and definitely turned some heads. With breakout singles including Where We Were, Runaway, Old Man & The Sea and most recently Kuaga as well as official remixes for artists ranging from The Killers to Above & Beyond, his style continues to evolve and love of experimentations doesn’t diminish. You may have also heard his downtempo and experimental productions such as 10/6 (That Should Do It), West Egg, As You Were, his remix for Mutemath and more recently his live version of Kuaga.

Now 22 years old and based in Brooklyn, Pierce is still subject to the habits of his youth; bouncing between genres and instruments while simultaneously bringing all of these influences into the dance music he’s known for. When he isn’t out on the road, playing shows around the world, not too much has changed about those quiet, cozy nights spent in the studio.

When setting up club lighting acts like this one, low budgets are more common than not, so we try our best to accommodate low budget shows by using the most cost-effective solution, while still putting on a high quality show.
