Its kind of officially the kick off of summer this weekend - charcoal's getting hot, pools are getting filled, booze is flowing freely and skin is more exposed. Just in case you weren't convinced - there are some festivals (Lightning In A Bottle, Silverlake Jubilee) too.
Assuming you're not fest-ing it up, or even if you are headed to Jubilee, you might want to consider a trip to Pasadena on Sunday at noon for DELON'S MEMORIAL WEEKEND POOL RAGER. It's the launch of a series of pool parties that the DJ/MC will be hosting and performing at all summer long - from private residences, to swanky hotels. BUT - unlike the others - this one is the first and comes along with free alcohol (including some tasty tasty XANTE), free food and, of course, free entry. Space is limited - so you might want to RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org to ensure you and your guests are included. You can also RSVP via Facebook here.
Not convinced? On top of being one of the first in LA to witness the Sri Lankan phenom drop his poppy party starter "Body Rock" - you may get a taste of some of his other unreleased material, as well as visits from other upstarts like Dean Risko, Electric Drip and Joy Island! Check out Delon, Risko and Electric Drip's videos below. Electric Drip's video is like Beastie Boys "Sabotage" had a baby with aliens and dub step music and that baby was a music video.
I'm heading out because not only are the musicians talented - but who can refuse free booze and food by the pool? Not me. Neither can Before The Bigs - the blog hosting the event. Hope to see you at 880 Rosalind Rd., San Marino, CA 91108!
