Happy Tuesday, everyone!!!
We’re just getting back from this year’s TV, Concert, and Electronic Dance Music Master Classes sponsored by Live Design — a great time was had by all. We had so much fun sponsoring and being a part of the events and festivities this year in Los Angeles at the famous USC Campus, and we’re looking forward to next year! It was a great load-in, a great show, and a great crew. Thanks to the excellent USC students for being such talented technicians and helping hands!
We’ve got a TON of photos for you, hopefully you’ll feel like you were at the show — excellent presentations from the cream of the crop in the industry. Enjoy!
