It’s a little something folks like to call “chilled trap.” Shlohmo’s keeping his electronic beats low-key and experimental for a journey that’s all its own. Take a listen to “Later” from Shlohmo’s “Laid Out” EP and catch him at the second Vans House Party of the summer on July 11th.

A rapper and a producer, Jonwayne likes to do a little bit of everything. But hey, that just means he does everything a little better too, right? We’re digging the beat he’s laying down for “Notes to Myself.”

Catch him at the next installment of the Vans House Parties on July 11th. 

If you give a girl a guitar, she may just write some songs and make some music. Hop Along vocalist Frances Quinlan has a voice that’s somewhere between coffee shop delicate and basement punk raw. There’s an indie-folk element to the music, and we just can’t. stop. listening. No seriously.

Catch them at the first Vans x FYF House Party of the summer on 6/27.

It’s that time of year again! We’re back at it at the House of Vans with the third annual Vans x FYF House Parties.

We laughed, we cried, we browsed for vinyl and took photos with polar bears. There were carnival games and free face painting, and the tastiest handmade popsicles you’ve ever had. I’d say that maybe the weekend was all a dream, but I’ve got a gnarly sunburn and I’m still coughing up dirt, so it’s gotta be real, right? Till next year, FYF!

FYF Fest is this interesting sort of mashup of Coachella and the summer Vans House Parties. The skyscrapers of downtown LA are on the horizon, the sun is shining down, and kids are sprawled out all over L.A. State Historic Park for a weekend of fantastic tunes. 

There was a little bit of everything on the menu clothes-wise, from some crazy silver capes and bandana headbands to tie-dye and Hawaiian shirts.

The atmosphere was pretty chill for day 1 of California’s FYF Fest, where we caught some of our House Party friends, FIDLAR and Chairlift

Take a walk around if you’re going this weekend, ‘cause there’s a ton to check out. Stop by the craft booth to customize some buttons and postcards, or sign your name on the most epic of chalkboards – giant sunglasses! I even stopped to treat myself to a tasty little chocolate chip cookie sandwich from BabyCakes NYC. Thumbs up for baked goodies!

FYF know how to put on a show. Whether it’s helping out with our summer House Parties at the House of Vans in Brooklyn, or planning LA’s FYF Fest over Labor Day weekend, they show no signs of slowing down or skimping on the entertainment.
The lineup for this year’s FYF Fest was just announced this morning, with some of our favorites, like Against Me!, Turbonegro, and Converge. Let’s just take a moment to bask in the awesomeness that is all these bands jam-packed into two days in downtown Los Angeles.
Come sprawl out in LA State Historic Park on September 1st and 2nd. Tickets go on sale this Friday, June 22nd, with weekend passes starting at $77. I think we just found the perfect use for your graduation money.

If you couldn’t make it out to Austin for SXSW, check out this year’s Mess With Texas video recap. It captures the fast-paced fun and insanity that ensues in a span of 3 music, booze and bliss infused days. If you were able to make it out to the stomping grounds, see if you can spot that band you became obsessed with deep in the heart of MWTX. Or better yet, see if you can spot yourself sipping on a Neuro.

FYF Fest tomorrow!

Yo, LA folks! Whatchu up to this Labor Day weekend? Didja know there’s a whole bunch of awesome bands getting together for the FYF Fest tomorrow? There’s quite a few familiar faces like No Age, Glass Candy and Touche Amore who also hit up our House Parties in Brooklyn this summer. Needless to say, if you’re on the west coast, you should probably ditch your Labor Day weekend BBQs for 12 hours of rad music. 

The fun kicks off at noon and runs all night. Pick up your tickets and all sorts of useful info at FYFfest.com.
