After a rocky year and a half, downtown Los Angeles’ all-ages DIY venue The Smell turns 20. To honor the occasion three shows were put together over the weekend celebrating the venues' 20 years in existence. The stacked lineup for night one was curated by long time patron turned promotor Minty Boi. Filling out the bill are venue regulars French Vanilla, Moaning, Wild Wing, Post Life, and Small Forward with Surf Curse headlining the sold out show.
