FRIDAY, JULY 27
Planet Freak Video Launch Party
Check this sneak peek into the “multidimensional matrix of music, image & money” that typifies Hollywood Blvd’s hip-hoppiest store and party spot. Unveiling the first official video for “Freak City Vol. 1 Compilation” for Summer 2012, this one should be off the Holly-hood hook. FREAK CITY PO$$E + special guests prvide the sounds.

SATURDAY, JULY 28
When it comes to groovy, glammy atmosphere, fresh fashion, live drag performance and of course, sick and sexy fingertips, Full Set nails it. The monthly event from LA designer and performer Rude Ness just rules. Check back for a post this afternoon about Rude’s jewelry line and other designers vending at Full Set!
Dublab presents Egyptian Lover and Arabian Prince
If you’re a fan of “808” dance beats (extremely huge early electro dance music in the late 80′s/early 90′s) and never seen Arabian Prince and Egyptian Lover, this event is a MUST. The pair are innovators when it comes to these kinds of dance jams. Plus, this Dublab shindig is an early event and all ages. Check out the pair on Dublab’s “Future Roots Radio” show a couple years ago.
SUNDAY, JULY 29
To quote 50 Cent, “it’s our birthday… we’re gonna party like its our birthday!” Well, it’s our birthday week (as a Leo, we obligated to over-do it so check here for more festivities). Sunday, we won’t be celebrating “in da club,” but outside, under the sun at one of the hottest daytime parties in Los Angeles. Summertramp was always a great monthly party, but after veritably taking over this year’s Gay Pride festival in West Hollywood, it’s rep as a rager is truly another level now. Blow up slides and pools, boys and girls of all persuasions in wild bathing-suit looks, and top notch DJs don’t hurt either. This clip by The Video Mouse captures the wet and wild chaos pretty well:
