For over a decade, KROQ has thrown parties in the infield at Santa Anita Park. And there’s a reason; they’re always a blast.
Couldn’t be there? Here’s what you missed: 25 of the best food trucks, 45 craft beers served by a legion of cheerleader-like hostesses, 10 thoroughbred races and a live performance from Shiny Toy Guns. Clouds dumped rain all over LA and OC yet not a single drop fell over Arcadia. It was like someone wanted us to party hearty.
Leave it to Lightning to hold a contest for Muse tickets that involved mud. Three contestants hurriedly smothered mud from a nearby puddle all over their faces in an attempt to impress the judges. One guy went a far as placing a piece of turf on his head like a bad grass toupee. Since all three were such good sports, each one walked away with a pair of tickets to Saturday night’s Staples Center show.
The day was capped by an amazing set from Shiny Toy Guns who stayed to meet fans and take a few photos. Be sure to join us March 3rd as we welcome another great LA band you’ve heard on KROQ, Youngblood Hawke.
