When I showed up DJ Magneato was already on the ones and twos, keeping the vibe upbeat and sexy.
So sexy that people starting jumping in the pool. And others got thrown in.
But, not everyone was choosing to get wet. There were a couple sailors that decided to stay on shore…
I was wandering throughout the party, and of course ran into who else but Alf Alpha, members of Slipping Into Darkness, and Steven Preston from the narly California Soul podcast.
Steven Preston didn’t waste anytime and busted out his mic and tape recorder and recorded a live show right at Ace Hotel’s Short Bus party! It was fun. The CVAS blog even got on the mic a little.

You will love it. It’s a great audio podcast of who, what, when, and where everything took place that day.
I was wandering around some more and ran into Danny from Hamburger Eyes. Let me tell you about this guy Danny. Danny is the man because the night before Sunday he jumped into the pool naked from the top of this like… plank. I don’t wanna say to much, but trust me in that he is down. So down, that he hooked it up with bad ass Hamburger Eyes books and T-shirts. I was way stoked. Thanks to everyone at Hamburger Eyes for tuning into the CVAS blog. You guys continue to inspire me. Here is a single photo that I took of the book. Look closely.
Strolling around some more with my boozie snow cone in hand and what do I see but I fashion photography photo shoot going down. Rad! Check out these photos from Luisa Ortega and Adam Moore, who together artistically go by the name LASF87.
Luisa and I were talking to this guy… he was pretty amazing. Back in the day this dude traveled with models, fashion photographers… basically, just lived the life.
Finger accessories are my absolute favorite and he had them nailed. A majority of these rings are from his times and travels in Tibet.
Luisa and Adam checking out their photos. Luisa later told me that the name for the shoot was “Time to Shine.” Fitting, right? I think so. Make sure to keep an eye out on these two. LASF87 will be featuring a ton more desert fashion photoshoots for the CVAS blog. Summer collabo 2009. =)
As Sol District finished up their set, I decided it would be a good time to take a walk around…
ran into these feet…
I walked outside the venue and saw the police had just rolled up…
Police never came inside, but the party was over. It was around 7pm or so and everyone looked a little drained.
All in all – the party was amazing. Best thing is… it’s free, it’s during the day, it’s at a cool place, it’s welcoming to young people, and it’s all ages.
