Memorial Day weekend came and went. You might have had the usual plans like meeting up with friends and grill up some burgers, take a trip to the closest beach and relax, or even just sit at home and watch that huge Disney Channel Original movie marathon that’s going all weekend, but many took a trip of a different kind: to the feel-good summer vibes in the form of the chillest and most laid back lineup to grace the Electric Factory in a while, led by Michigan-based singer BØRNS, with songstresses Beau and Los Angeles Reggae-Pop trio Coast Modern.
BØRNS, aka Garrett Borns, moved the audience to complete and utter bliss, with his contagious joy that was prevalent in his entire performance. That, and he had the audience swooning and figuratively on their knees. His performance, which was amplified by the colorfully trippy backdrop and lighting, included may tracks from his first, full-length album Dopamine released in October of last year, including “10,000 Emerald Pools,” “American Money,” the title track, and “Electric Love,” which was later followed by a passionate cover of David Bowie’s “Heroes.”
The entire night was magical, to say the least, and everyone in the room, even the ones who originally weren’t too familiar with the lineup, left that venue still singing and still high off of the joy that came from experiencing one of, if not the best way, to kick off this summer.
