Helicopterbearshark

At the madelife Ladies Night Trunk Show, we hosted Boulder musician Helicopterbearshark (aka Ryan O’Malley’s) for an evening of ear-intriguing music accompanying the fashion show. For those of you who have not experienced Helicopterbearshark’s music, it’s not your standard one-man band. Equipped with drums, an electric guitar, a keyboard, a saxophone, and a sizable loop pedal station, HBS allows his music to adapt to the environment of his performances. At Ladies Night, he certainly was a hit.

In the days following his performance, we have missed his music filling the Factory. However, we were able to stumble upon a few bears and sharks left over from HBS’s laser-cut cardboard business cards. These guys were able to make their way around the store and pose for a few candid snapshots.
