Bright Antenna at Outside Lands 2013

Here at Bright Antenna Records, we’re all live-music lovers. Though we’ll travel far and wide to hear our own bands play (Tiffanie, Braden, and Ben are all in Tampa, FL this weekend to see Flagship), we are lucky enough in the San Francisco Bay Area to have great music come to us all the time. Bay Area music festival OutsideLands is like our own personal heaven: music gods rocking out in a park that’s in our backyard! Okay, Golden Gate Park is a bit of a trek for anyone who doesn’t live in the Sunset, but to see Kurt Vile, Willie Nelson, The National, Vampire Weekend, and Paul Mc-effing-Cartney perform, … Continued

Bright Antenna Celebrates Independence Day

The entire BA gang and most of their significant others made their way to Kalispell, Montana this year to celebrate July 4th together. Besides participating in the usual mountain town activities, like hiking, swimming, dancing, and consuming copious amounts of meat and whiskey, we also played in a bocce tournament and lost a lot of BINGO games.

Yoga at Bright Antenna: It’s All About The Music

They say “the team who planks together, stays together.” Okay, I’m pretty sure that no one would actually EVER say that, but they should. Bright Antenna has been having a weekly in-house team yoga class for a year and a half now, and it really helps morale! Let’s just say there’s something about seeing your boss in happy baby pose that really makes the most stressful of days a little easier! Our yoga teacher, Arwyn Moonrise (Bay Area folks, check out her classes!), says we are her favorite class. It may have something to do with how open we are about cursing her out for her relentless dolphin pushups, or my … Continued
