Beach Goth Party

The third annual Beach Goth Party took place on Saturday, October 25, 2014 at the Observatory Theater in Santa Ana, California. The event was organized by Costa Mesa-based band the Growlers and hosted by actor/comedian Pauly Shore.

The lineup ranged from the headlining Growlers to hip-hop artist GZA, founding member of the Wu-Tang Clan. With over 30 acts performing on three different stages, most sets were cut short or shuffled around. But despite the schedule changes fans continued dancing in the mosh pit and crowd surfing. As the night progressed and more music fans arrived, event host Pauly Shore walked on stage pouring beer on musicians before exiting the venue with two Sky Vodka bottles tucked underneath his arms.

Both on and offstage, conversations revolving around cocaine and MDMA flowed as freely as the beer. Food vendors were on hand to feed the masses and there was even a carnival ride as well as a scare house to entertain guests.
