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.

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!

Sometimes we need to be reminded what a straight up punk rock house party feels like. It should be so down and dirty that you wake up scraping the grime from your skin, legs all bruised up, and a shoe gone missing. 
This week’s Vans House Party is going to be just that, with old school punk bands H2O and 7Seconds taking to the stage alongside Brooklyn’s own Tournament.
Get your party on at the House of Vans this Thursday, July 12th! All ages and free with RSVP.

Brooklyn! This summer’s first installment of the Vans + FYF House Parties is going down tomorrow with The Rapture and Tanlines. If I had some dancing shoes, I’d be polishing them up for a night of experimental pop goodness. As it is, I’ll just slip on my favorite Authentic Lo Pros and wave my arms in the air, heeeeey yeah! 
Also, that guy or girl you’ve been itching to ask out? I think we’ve got your first date covered.
June 20th. 8pm. House of Vans in Brooklyn. You know the drill. 
Entry is free, but make sure you RSVP now and get there early to guarantee yourself a spot!
