Last month we packed up the shop van for a quick jaunt to Palm Desert where we celebrated the release of What Youth: Issue Fifteen. As we pulled into the familiar ACE Hotel parking lot, the warm, desert air welcomed us with a tight squeeze and immediately led us to the glistening pool for an evening dip.
After trekking all day through the Arizona desert, our good friends, Matt Bruening and Brennen Cunningham, met us poolside before we all headed to the private pool at The Commune for the release party. What Youth pulled out all the stops for the event. Los Angeles based punk band, The Paranoyds, kicked off the night with an unreal set before the back-to-back screenings of Everything's Wrong But In The Right Place and Dion Agius' new film, The smiling bag. All in all the night served as a great (unofficial) farewell to summer.
What Youth: Issue Fifteen is now available in-store at the North Park Flagship and online here.
