This past May Surfer X Blood held the second gathering of the Summer Tease The Good Life Pool Party event at the Standard Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles. Guests from throughout the Greater Los Angeles Area assembled on the 12th floor of The Standard, Downtown LA to thrash, relax, swim, party, see familiar faces and make new long life lasting friends. Capacity was hit by early on, SPRFKR and Viirj composed a stunning one of a kind live 7' ft acrylic/wheat paste piece for SurfAid International that the hotel still has up to today. There were birthdays celebrated, thousands of photos taken, and everything down to the fooseball table was even given a work out of its own. Employees from several So Cal Beach Brands, to movie producers, as well as writers, models, and a fair share of So Cal thrasher tastemakers came out to join in with the party. LA's up and coming surf rock band Sandy Pussy treated the crowd to a unique blend of driving instrumental surf rock thrash that had everyone literally jumping off the hinges. Aaron Shanahan of Miami Horror put down an amazing set alongside LA's local favorite Aaron Castle, Adrian Rodriguez, Morgan Pharoh and Nina Tarr, they packed the dancefloor and had everyone dancing till sunset.
The next Summer Tease The Good Life Pool Party takes place just a wave away on June 16th 2012. With Nick Waterhouse headlining this one, we only expect this Summer Tease to never end.
