What in the seven hells is going on at Lil Death? The weekly event at Downtown L.A.'s One Eyed Gypsy has quickly been picking up steam, but if you, the casually fashionable West Hollywood party veteran, were to just wander in, you might find the vibe to be spookier than you're accustomed to. That's because Lil Death, with it's digital goth aesthetic, eclectic crowd, and higher artistic aspirations, keeps it a little weirder than your average nightspot. Confused? We'll use these awesome Cobrasnake photos from last week's edition to help break it down. More»
If your favorite raver seems to be running about a quart low on serotonin today, there's a perfectly good explanation: they were probably dancing it up all weekend in Las Vegas at EDC 2012.

We've sorted through thousands of photos to give you a chance to live, or re-live, the madness. 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.

On Saturday night the month of July literally went up in flames! Whispers and speculation that three of Brooklyn's cavernous warehouses would play host to an unashamed end of July bash turned out to be true via Life of Fire at the 3rd Ward.
