House-Party-goers were especially stoked to see New York’s own Gorilla Biscuits take the stage last Thursday for their super-charged performance of hardcore punk hits. After a while, it was hard to tell who was in the band and who was in the audience once people started rushing to the stage. But we wouldn’t have had it any other way.

Sporting some sweet neon Sk8-Hi’s, hardcore rock band Turnstile was ready to show Brooklyn what they’re made of. Lead vocalist Brendan Yates wasn’t afraid to get involved with the crowd surfers and moshers and set the tone for the rest of the performances that night. We wish we could catch air like they do on stage!

Mac Demarco took the stage at our very first Vans House Party of the Summer in Brooklyn, NY last week. There wasn’t an inch of space in the entire House of Vans and the lines at the bar even slowed as people crammed toward the stage to catch the Canadian musician’s set. Demarco is calling Brooklyn home these days, and the city is certainly loving him back. The incredibly fun set, although mild in antics for Demarco, was a perfect way to kick off the summer. Stay tuned for some Q&A with Mac coming later this week and hear a quick clip from him about his new album title Salad Days on the Vans Instagram.
