What You Missed: Gear Show, Orange International Street Fair, Cold Cave, FYF Fest, Costa Mesa Wood Racquet Classic

Want to know what you missed this weekend? As the last few days of summer came to an end, our weekend was packed with music, food, beer, tennis, and a whole lot of naked people. We ventured out of Orange County to go to the first annual Gear Show in Los Angeles that included a fashion show of everything latex and rubber. We also headed over to Detroit Bar to see Cold Cave perform with Abe Vigoda, and had food and drinks from around the world at the Orange International Street Fair. On Saturday, we headed back to LA to go to the Fuck Yeah Fest--where we caught performances by The Rapture, Dead Man's Bones, and more. And on Sunday, we watched the Costa Mesa Wood Racquet Classic with Orange County's finest.

West Coast Rubber and Stockroom.com held the first annual Gear Show September 3 at Syren/Stockroom on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles. It was full of kinky/pervy fun, including a house bar, lots of fruits (at the buffet of course), and a fashion show showcasing some of the newest and coolest fashion coming out of Stockroom.com this year, including the brand new pig masks to go with your favorite latex or rubber uniform. See the full slideshow here. See a slideshow that takes you behind the scenes of the event here.
