On Friday October 19, the Quality team hit up Pioneer Indy for the third rendition of Lari Pati. The name translates to “street party” in creole, and that’s exactly what the night consisted of. Pioneer Indy was full of music lovers, local artists, DJ’s and creatives all playing their role in cementing and advancing the music, art and fashion cultures in Indianapolis.
Started by Indianapolis resident Steven, also known in the community as @pitchforpennies, the event sets out to give party goers more authority in their experience by submitting playlists and song suggestions, as well as submitting personal work to be featured at the party.
Steven has set out to create the most inclusive and community focused music event in the city, where the goal is to make Indianapolis a place to hear new music first. By getting rid of VIP tickets, bottle service and exclusive sets, the event is meant to make those in attendance feel connected to the music and overall experience of the night.
Live music was performed by DJ 777, DJ Ferris Booler, DJ Brooke Billions and DJ Txtbook.
Round four is set for Friday November 9 at 9:00 p.m. back at Pioneer Indy. Visit http://do317.com/events/2018/11/9/lari-pati for tickets. If you want to take full advantage of the night, DM @pitchforpennies to submit any playlists or songs you would want to hear in rotation.
