The Night of Dia De Los Muertos started early this year with Giant Skull. First spot was Downtown L.A. at Grand Park. Yikes! The second we arrived, Giant Skull got rushed.Then after a close call with the po-po, we kept it moving to Self Help Graphics & Mariachi Plaza in Boyle Heights. Where we saw Mexican Institute of Sound rock the Plaza.(video coming soon) Where Giant Skull got a lot of love.After the Mariachi Plaza, we went to the after party of the night, just down the street to Azul 213’s “BAILE DE LOS MUERTOS” with my Hit + Run Crew. Where the party continued all night.There was a lot more in between the good times of course that ended with some Ordonez 24 hour Mexican restaurant in Montebello where mos def all the freaks come out at night espcially at 3am in the morning. Ha! Till next year good night Giant Skull.
