If you think Downtown Phoenix is full of colorful characters already, just wait. Things are about to get a lot more vibrant, thanks to Life in Color Unleash.
The highly-anticipated annual paint party at CityScape needs a bit of preparation. Luckily, we’re here to guide you if it’s your first foray into the world of paint parties.
Walking into a paint party is a little overwhelming. The electronic music is thumping as you strut into the venue and look around at the paint-splattered EDM warriors that are making their way from the middle of the crowd. You look at these people in disbelief and envy. “How do I get myself in the middle of this madness?” The first streak of cold paint hits your chest and you know that was the beginning of the end—of your clean clothes.
You look around and realize that there are lunatics with paint guns surrounding the whole crowd. You look up and they’re dropping colorful splats from the ceiling. Hope you didn’t buy a new cute outfit or anything you plan on ever wearing again. The event claims the paint is “washable,” but once you’re drenched in a gallon of it, your clothes will never be the same.
A small price to pay for the color explosion of carefree mayhem that will take you over for the next few hours as the stage is set for headliner Krewella to display their latest drops and vocals. Also on the bill are Cash Cash and Futuristic Polar Bears for your turnt up pleasure.
It’ll be a night to remember, and if that’s too much to ask, you can always keep your new tie-dyed shirt as a reminder of the chaos that ensues when you mix a few thousand energetic EDM fans with another few thousand gallons of paint.
