I was at the Starlight Bowl in beautiful downtown Burbank this last Sunday, watching the Little River Band rock out the audience with some of their old hits from the 70s and 80s. What was cool about this show is that prior to the concert, Burbank Water and Power handed out LED flashlights to everyone in attendance. This is part of an energy awareness program BWP is involved with, and since they are one of the sponsors of this concert series, they use these concerts to promote their programs. As you can see in the photo, I am there in the foreground, with the vox populi of Burbank shining their little LED lights, in sync to the band. No more lighters, as this is a no smoking venue, but the tradition is still the same. It was cool moment, and one that would not have happened a year ago. LED Lighting is here, bright, cheap, and easily procured.
Next week, they will have the Mariachi Divas performing. I can only guess at what freebie they will hand out. Lit castanets, perhaps? Stay tuned.
