Shaun and Lydia Happy Hour is a conversational podcast that attempts to untangle the good, the bad, and the in-betweens of life. We are staunch believers in pronoia, the opposite of paranoia, and we’re here to share our journey as we rocket on a lump of dirt through the cosmos. All are invited to this happy hour, so bust out your favorite beverage and listen in on the conversation!
Two best friends podcasting about concerts, music festivals, and so much more! Your best friends are Shaun Johnson (@shaunsjohnson) and Nick Gandy (@bazooka_nick). We’re live music veterans who want to share our joy and excitement for concerts and music festivals with the world! We also go on tangents about a bunch of other stuff we love, like movies, TV shows, and video games.
Before I was assigned any creative work, I made this BOOGAT poster. I showed my co-workers and they all thought it was pretty neat. So, I started to get assigned posters. You can tell the spacing and typography is a mess, but the photo of BOOGAT and the background worked nicely.
The first poster I got assigned was the Timmy Williams stand-up show.
DMSC has a hard time communicating all of their monthly events to patrons, so I made a monthly poster with all of their events.
The poster I made highlighting the Halloween-themed events we had was probably my favorite poster I made. Spending the day brainstorming with my boss, Bethany Arganbright, about what events we could have and the event series name, “Fright Fest” was one of the best days during my internship.
With Copywrite and Coolzey’s permission, I took some of the assets from their tour poster and made one for the show at DMSC.
The Joshua James/MAIDS poster I made was never published because James’ manager ended up getting us a tour poster after all just as I finished it.
The last poster I made was for the Benjamin Cartel show. It was simple but I found it the most aesthetically pleasing. Mickey Davis, our program manager, loved it and wants to use it as a template for other singer-songwriter shows.
Greenlee School of Journalism’s Internship Coordinator Juli Probasco-Sowers made it apparent that keeping a solid journal was very important to catalog your work and see your progression as your internship moved along.
Nick and Shaun went to the Armor For Sleep 10-Year Anniversary Tour for What To Do When You Are Dead! This tour got announced in late June and they snagged tickets on day one because well, it’s Armor For Sleep. Nick hadn’t seen them before this and after the fun road trip they took to see Title Fight in March, they knew they had to record the fun moments for this road trip.
DISCLAIMER: This special episode was recorded in Shaun’s Mazda 3 on an iPhone 6 during the drive home from Chicago, so the audio isn’t the best. It was great seeing the band back in action. We discussed our fun road antics, our fast food choice, “The Great Shaun Mix-up” and the show itself.
Again, we are sorry for the audio quality, this was recorded on an iPhone 6 and is more of a way to capture the memory of two best friends road-tripping to see a band that means so much to them.
