Johnny Cupcakes is the original unordinary bakeshop.

After starting out of the trunk of a car in 2001, Johnny Cupcakes has grown to be an exclusive, international brand with "faux-bakeries" in Boston, London and Los Angeles. Over the past 10 years, an inspiring community of collectors has formed, prompting customers to camp outside the stores for up to two weeks for limited edition product releases.

Johnny Cupcakes x Four Year Strong x SJC Drums

Posted on December 10, 2011

This past wednesday three companies from Massachusetts came together for a night of music, food, beverages, and socializing. Those three b(r)ands being us folks at Johnny Cupcakes, Worcester’s own Four Year Strong, and the world’s finest custom drum company: SJC Custom Drums. The event was to celebrate the release of a limited edition Johnny Cupcakes & Four Year Strong collaboration shirt, available exclusively in our online store.

 

As a way of helping out the state that spawned all of these companies, SJC created a custom drumhead with the shirt’s artwork to auction off, with all proceeds going to help The Greater Boston Food Bank. You can bid on this by going over to our Johnny Cupcakes eBay Vault.

 

The evening started and ended with perfectly quirky DJ sets by our new friend Emil, of the amazingly refreshing band Emil & Friends, and culminated in an acoustic performance by Four Year Strong. Alan and Dan of Four Year Strong were joined by a cello player and violinist as they played stripped down and reworked versions of some of their best tracks. To top it all off, there was plenty of great food being served by the wonderful staff at the venue, Lucky’s Lounge.

 

All in all it was a great night with great people, coming together for a good cause and enjoying one another’s company. The evening wouldn’t have happened were it not for our very own Danny Poulin, so a big thank you to him for all of his hard work and planning that made the night a great success. Below you’ll find a sampling of some photos from the evening, but the whole set is available over on Flickr. All photos compliments of our very own Mike Dravis, of course!
