613 Imperial St., dwntwn. Sun., July 7, 11 a.m.- 6 p.m.
Summer's sexiest outdoor dance-o-rama is — finally! — back. Luke Nero and Andre Rigal's Summertramp was formerly held in the parking lot of Tony's Saloon but had secured a new, larger location downtown this year in preparation for a June kickoff. Unfortunately, the surrounding loft dwellers caused a fuss and the permits didn't stick. According to a concerned resident's letter being shared among 'Tramp fans on Facebook, the party was supposed to go down near the Toy Factory Lofts.
The new spot, outside of Lot 613, is way cooler anyway. Formerly Vertigo and Glam Slam, 613 has hosted some killer parties lately. It also offers great skyline views — although, of course, 'Tramp's vamps provide the best views of all. Androgynous guys in Speedos, sexy gals in glam beach gear and an all-around flamboyant mix of sun and sin worshippers — what's not to love?
DJs Aaron Colbert, Aaron Elvis, Casey Ava, Derek Monteiro, James Cerne, Josh Peace, Nelstar and Valida work it, with inflatable waterslides and pools on hand to keep you wet. There will be three full bars, food stands and more. A portion of the proceeds benefit the Los Angeles Gay & Lesbian Center.
