The Sunroom Tempe Arizona

Open House Festival Photo Gallery

Electricity shook us the first time we entered The Sunroom.

Was it the motley crew of fervent devotees, cast across the backyard?

Or the attention to detail which goes into their events – from the painstaking lineup curation to tailored visual accompaniments.

Maybe it’s because there are four incredibly-imaginative dudes who live there. And going on their third year in the Tempe house, they decide week-after-week, “Fuck it – let’s do some cool shit!”

We fed off that get-it-done mantra. So much, we came to them with the idea for an article. And in true Sunroom fashion…they asked if we’d be down to throw an event. Our first event. The Open House Festival.

So we sat down. We sat down some more (every Saturday for about 6-weeks, actually). And we hashed it out. Side note – there was a whole lotta drama surrounding the need for a sun shade, which we purchased from Home Depot and never ended up using. Shoutout to the Depot’s satisfying return policy.

We wanted to accomplish a few things:

  • Mesh music and art in a gorgeous, organic space.
  • Provide a platform for lesser-known Arizona acts to play amongst bonafide talent.
  • Bring friends and strangers together, to start conversations. Conversations which, we hope, make Arizona more badass than it already is.

Did we hit our mark? We thought we rocked the fuck out of it…but we’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.

Here’s a compilation of splendid shots by some of our good friends – Noah Glynn, Athena Burton and Konnor Buscho.

If you enjoyed these shots – please shoot us a follow on Instagram. More parties to come.

Check out our friends from The Sunroom here: Alex Gross, Andrew Robinson, Daniel Vogt & Mario Esposito.
