Can we start planning the party yet? Holy shit. Issue 9 deadline nearly made us dead. And we need to start party planning. It’s time. And while shit aint confirmed, we need this man. Let’s just say, mark your calendar: Thursday, October 23 Something is going down. If you’re in the greater CA area, we’re going to celebrate the release of our latest issue, perhaps a website relaunch (!!!) and all the fun that comes with that.
Also, this photo is from Andrew VanWyngarden. He’s in a band called MGMT. Yeah, you’ve probably danced to it. But he’s also a psychedelic genius (and he shreds). He sent us the final submission for the issue, which entailed many texts and e-mails to gather the submission while he played a show in Mexico, and then went on safari in South Africa. His curated playlist of “comedown music” was the final piece of the puzzle for What Youth Issue 9. I harassed him until he sent it, and then he said. “I’m on a safari in the middle of nowhere…did you get my submission?”
