Let's take a closer look at The Dive Club's generous preview of our favorite time of year and discuss 10 reasons to be excited for pool party season...
-As was leaked last week, Channing Tatum has been crowned People's 'Sexiest Man Alive' for 2012 which I have would have no problem with if they didn't have him fully manking it up in a wife-beater on the cover. I thought we agreed this was not a good look? [HuffPo]

Yesterday, Fool's Gold, the NYC-based record label founded by Alain Macklovitch (better known by his DJ name, A-Trak) and Nick Catchdubs brought their annual Day Off event to L.A. with the help of IHEARTCOMIX outside the Shrine Auditorium. Much like its NYC version last month, the free outdoor event featured performances from various members of the Fool's Gold family, but unlike its east coast predecessor, did not get shut down by the cops.
It's hot out there, we get it. Does that mean your brain has melted and you can't pick out a sartorially pleasing outfit? I really hope not, that would be so tragic. So let's just leave the offensive denim shorts, if you can call them that, where they belong. Which really should be the trash.

You didn't think we were going to let the absolute pinnacle of mank bro season go without an in-depth look at the many proudly on display at Coachella, did you? No darling, we're diving head first into the special time of year in a world where men, typically of the bro variety, not only find tank tops in public to be acceptable wardrobe staples, but actually prefer this look for reasons that escape us. And this year we got a double dose of bro mankage all over the Coachella Valley with two weekends of the music fest. So get comfortable, break out the Bud Light Platinum and cue the Asher Roth album as we take you on this exciting journey through the bounty of man pits and shoulders across Brochella 2012, kicking off what is sure to be a fruitful mank bro season.

GofG L.A.'s favorite brash, hell-raising infant was back in full effect for Weekend 1 of Coachella. Much like his coverage of Sundance, Party Baby staked out this action-packed weekend and all of its wonders, from the festival to the parties and beyond, documenting his debaucherous journey throughout his very first Coachella experience.

So here, in his own words, is an inside look at how Party Baby went totally H.A.M. all over Coachella 2012. More»
Rejoice! Womp womp season is upon us, raver children. On Saturday night, A-Trak, Jack Beats, Destructo and friends joined a just barely 18+ crowd and what we might imagine was the greater LA area's majority supply of E at the Wiltern for HARD LA, marking the unofficial start of rave season.

So, as the official season of unst unst kicks into high gear, let's take a look HARD LA through the best of Instagram. More»

The stores may have all their fall merch on display but as long as dudes are fully-manking and we're day drinking outside, it's still summer for us. And music fest season isn't over either, guys!
