"Baker 4" Premiere Photos

I started to write an intro for this post and then realized it doesn’t need one. You’re going to watch this video no matter what I have to say about it—it speaks for itself. Regardless, here’s some photos from the Baker 4 premiere this past Thursday night at the Orpheum Theatre in Downtown LA. Wait, I actually do have one thing to say about the video: All hail Baca!
