It was a special night as a portait photo was given to security man, Daniel, and good vibes were all around. A lot of credit for the good vibes part goes to Minty Boi who himself is deep in the pit during the night.

The Future of The Smell

The Smell 20th Anniversary is a great celebration as the home of many Angelenos’ musical past and present. More like a family than merely a place to go, The Smell represents vitality of independent spirit and is a most important part of our culture.

As for the future: The weekend-long event continues with Cherry Glazerr headlining Saturday night.
