In addition to his impeccable fashion line, Billy Reid has become known for his annual Shindig. The August party in The Shoals, Alabama celebrates art music, fashion, food, and friendship. But if you can’t make it to Alabama this year, there are still a few other chances to party with Billy.
The Road to Shindig consists of six locations including Shindig No. 8 in Florence, Alabama which takes place August 26-27. The traveling party will visit Washington DC on August 10, New York on August 11, Chicago on August 12, Atlanta on August 18, and Nashville on August 19.
Artwork by visual artist Alison Mosshart of The Kills will be on display in New York, Chicago, and Nashville. At Shindig, Mosshart will show a collection of small paintings from the band’s American tour.
Photos by Jeremiah Ariaz will show in Chicago and Atlanta. The series features 12 photos shot close to Billy Reid’s hometown of Amite, Louisiana. The series will also show at Shindig.
Blackberry Farm Brewery will also join Billy Reid with a custom craft beer created exclusively for the Road to Shindig. Brewmaster Roy Milner will visit all six Billy Reid locations, culminating in the Billy Reid x Blackberry Farm dinner on Friday, August 26 at Shindig.
