Wake Up: The Happy Show

Los Angeles
Let's wake up with New York artist Xander Ferreira of The Happy Show before he plays The Rooftop on Thursday, May 25th.
The things that make Xander Ferreira want to wake up...

The sound of...
BIRD SONGS, A STREAM, A WATERFALL

The smells of...
COFFEE, BACON, THE OCEAN
THE AFRICAN BUSH, A FOREST
The sight of...
SUNRISE, A BLUE SKY
