Multiple pairs of graphic cartoons create a scene of a small outdoor concert. Two performers stand to the bottom left of the image; a white femme person plays guitar while a Black masc person sings on a handheld mic. Two spectators are seated on a blanket at a fair distance; a tall brown masc person placed next to a brown femme person - they are both watching the performance and smiling. A white parent with their baby are standing on a far porch and smiling at the concert. A Black family trio is seated on the front porch steps of the right house, smiling, the two adults side by side with their child seated on the one parent's lap. Another pair of viewers to the far right of the frame are smiling at the performance. The light skinned spectator is seated in their wheelchair and accompanied by their dog, their tall brown masc friend standing behind them. Text on the image reads, "PORCHSIDE SONGS / LIVE & IN CONCERT, IN YOUR FRONT YARD!"
