Usually shark attacks are something you avoid, and most times even fear, but every summer there is one shark attack that everyone looks forward to, and that is the Ben Watts 10th Annual Shark Attack Sounds Party. It's recently come to our attention that the party will be falling on July 6th, meaning everyone has one day to recover from whatever massive hangover you acquired from your independence day celebrations.
Basically what happens at Shark Attack Sounds is that Ben Watts takes over Rick's Crabby Cowboy and turns it into a massive rager. And with Ben as the host, you can bet most of the 2500 guests will be notable. Last years event included Ben Pundole and Mazdack Rassi joined by Naomi Watts, Liev Schrieber, Alessandra Ambrosio, Jamie Mazur, Maryna Linchuk, DJ Salvatore Morale, Fisher Stevens, Griffin Dunne, Ana Beatriz, Tori Praver, Danny Fuller, Jessica Hart, Stavros Niarchos, Dree Hemingway, Dylan Lauren, Rogan Gregory, Bridget Hall, DJ Chelsea Leyland, Annabelle Dexter-Jones, Andre Saraiva, Keren Craig, Tomas Hayo, Lyle Owerko, Steven Rojas, Jenne Lombardo, Ric Pipino, Victor Calderone, Athena Calderone, Jean-Marc Houmard, Natalie Joos, Magnus Berger, Tenzin Wild, Hunter Hill, Annabel Tollman, Ashley Smith, Phil Winser, Ben Towill, Jamie Strachan, and Arthur Kulkov.
