Outdoor concert offers summer vibe

Scripps College Bowling Green Lawn was the site for an immersive outdoor concert on April 11. 

The band Middle Class Party played with three fellow artists, singers and songwriters Finn Matthews, Taylor Felt and Samara Cyn, before an audience of about 150.

Globe lights hung along each side of the outdoor venue, giving the concert a summer night vibe. 

Guests sat on lawn chairs and blankets. Some brought picnics, and many danced throughout the concert.

The first performance of the night was pop artist Matthews playing alongside Middle Class Party. He sang original songs he had released with a couple soon to be released.

Pop singer Felt followed Matthews. She sang original songs with only a guitar for some of the time, and she performed a cover of Paramore’s popular song “Ain’t It Fun,” for which she played alongside Middle Class Party.

The final singer of the night was hip-hop artist and rapper Cyn. She sang and rapped original songs.

Dayanara Rodriguez, a prospective Scripps student who attended the concert, said she was excited to see the singers perform.

“Taylor Felt and Samara Cyn were my favorites,” Rodriguez said. “The music was cool.”
