We’re back with what might be the last No Shirt / No Shoes of the summer. The beast that is NS/NS has emerged from the shallow end of the pool, mindtai in hand, and grabbed the bleached out, high waisted Guess wearing babe that is High Tide to create a sweaty hybrid in honor of summer.

RSVP Here and come early

In honor of Saturday here’s a few of the many amazing Guess “girls” from my youth.

As nerdy as this may sound, I’m pretty excited about our new hangtags. Look for them on the new FW collection.

Hard Fest was pretty amazing. After dealing with one of the most hectic lines ever, I found myself up on stage next to Dave1 of Chromeo watching his brother and AVH join forces as Ducksauce to play one of the funnest sets I’ve ever seen.

“If you like Daytime Disco, Boobs, Beer, and The Beach, you’ll pretty much never wanna leave Dub Frequency’s Summer Party Series entitled “No Shirt / No Shoes”! Poseidon himself even called it “The Greatest Frothfest since Noah’s Arc”. Anyways, I got drunk yesterday, sat on the beach, and hammered out this mix featuring a few of the tracks I like to play at the NS / NS parries. Get weird!”

No Shirt, No Shoes, No Shit?!

June252 No Shirt, No Shoes, No Shit?!

We’re back again on the 25th.  Ampal and the N.S./N.S. franchise is bringing you another helping of tropo summer fun.  The last 2 have been defining the summer vibes and this edition will prove to be extra frothy.  Forecasted perfect 78 degree late June heat + Black Lips spreading their drunken flower punk and our favorite westside party gods GUNS in the SUN mean this is one you’ll wish you remembered, so make sure and RSVP here.

We’ll be getting the fun started with the Black Lips @ Detroit Bar in Costa Mesa on the 23rd.  Its a rad tiny venue that will pretty much explode with the first distorted guitar rip.

UPDATE: Rumor has it that the GUNS will be bringing their extensive collection of 80s-early 90s punk vinyl.
