Los Angeles’ Chinatown looks like a movie set; at least its picturesque Gin Ling Way does. Chinese architecture, festive lanterns and scarlet and gold colors mark the historic pedestrian thoroughfare. Many after-hours parties took place in the darkened restaurants of this area a number of years ago, but for seasonal Los Angeles resident Guy Gerber’s roaming Rumors event, the party is brought outside.
This is the second year Gerber is hosting Rumors in Los Angeles at Gin Ling Way, complete with his own hospitality and decorations that enhance the space’s already colorful environment. Last summer, he and Los Angeles favorite DJ Harvey had this area bouncing for six hours solid. The second go-round, scheduled for April Fools’ Day, promises more of the same in what Gerber hopes will become an annual special occasion featuring the two DJs.
Rumors started in 2014 in Ibiza, Gerber’s other place of residence, as a free party on the beach, and continues in that format to this day. Since then, Rumors has hit Gerber’s hometown of Tel Aviv, as well as Miami, London, Amsterdam, Sardinia, Mykonos, Warung and of course, Los Angeles, delivering the carefree spirit and bohemian vibes of its Mediterranean island origins, always taking place outdoors and at least partially during daylight hours.
