Every year the underground Los Angeles DJ and Music community gets together to throw a benefit event to raise awareness and donations for much needed music and arts programs through out the area. This is the 14th year for the legendary Thanks Givends Benefit event. A night of getting down in three rooms in an old church in skid row. The music flowed til 4:30 am!
It gives DJs an opportunity to check out other DJs, promoters to share stories and patrons to check out many of the different tastes Los Angeles has to offer. It’s a bit like an annual reunion for the movers and groovers of some of LA’s vibrant music/DJ scene plus a wonderful chance to give back.
There were 40+ DJs and performers to be heard throughout the night and Astronaut Disco Visuals got down in the main room. We hit two screens and all visuals were live collages, created on the spot, reacting to the music and energy of the dancefloor below.
This video documents some of the best moments from the visuals from Astronaut Disco that night.
These are digitally processed still created from photos taken of the visuals created live and projected over the dance floor and DJ by Astronaut Disco at the 14th Annual “Thanks Givends” benefit event.
