CRSSD FEST: A(nother) Step Forward In The US Dance Music Scene

This past weekend Southern California house and techno aficionados came together at the Waterfront park in San Diego to prance, dance, and drink craft beer at the bi-annual CRSSD Festival.

Party Report: Ultra Music Festival 2017

Doing 3 days at Ultra when you’re 38 years old is like running the New York Marathon for the first time with no shoes on. “You sound like you were ran over by a train” my friend tells me on Monday as we’re talking on the phone…”Yes but it was worth it” I respond.
