So how was your weekend? I'm sure it was fun, but probably not as fun as spending a whole day with the best bunch of clowns, mudpeople, and other misfits. After surviving a week in the desert, Burners reunited in downtown Los Angeles for fun, revelry, fraternity, and of course to dance their asses off.

The 5th Annual Los Angeles Decompression was held at a new location near the 4th Street and Palmetto, and provided a larger and more open space for theme camps, bands, and DJ's to showcase their music and art.
