WORDS and PHOTOS by Kristina Dawn

The “Don’t Panic Tour” featuring L.A. Hip-Hop artist Lauren Sanderson and Best Friend/Pop Queen Sizzy Rocket stopped in Portland, OR for the very first time earlier this month. The tour, named after Lauren’s debut album, has become a sanctuary for her fans. Lauren (or “L” for short) breaking between each song to express her gratitude to everyone in the room, especially to her touring crew, parents, friends, and especially band mate, (and Portland native) Ryan Pavlovic. L ending the night with a moving speech promoting self love, shameless self expression, encouragement to fight fear, and inspiring fans and friends alike to chase their dreams until they become a reality.
