We got pretty wild on Friday night with our friends from Crap Eyewear, House Beer and Jose Cuervo to introduce our 12th issue to the world. And we’ll be damned if you all didn’t turn up for some fun in the weird little place that Venice is. We got live music from Billy Changer and Leo Romero’s band Travesura, and then maybe the most eclectic DJ set ever by Austyn Gillette (was that Crazytown and Sugar Ray we heard?). Lots of familiar faces, some faces we hadn’t seen in a while and were happy to see as well as cover photographer Mark Oblow — all out in full force to ring in the new issue, which features Mark Gonzales in Hawaii, Circa 1989 on the cover. Scroll through for some fun, and quit missing our parties.
Big thanks to Mark Hunter [The Cobra Snake] for shooting photos. Check out more photos from the night here.
