On Friday evening, pornstar and director (as well as recent UC Irvine guest speaker and former Howard Stern Show guest) Dana DeArmond (MySpace) celebrated the release of her Vivid-Alt (MySpace) movie Role Modeling with a party at the 6th Street Warehouse in Downtown Los Angeles. Donations of canned food at the door benefited the Downtown Women's Center.

Also in attendance, besides DeArmond's boyfriend Daniel and Vivid-Alt head Eon McKai (MySpace), were photographer Dave Naz (MySpace) and his girlfriend Ashley Blue, porn starlet Tory Lane (MySpace), porn actor Alex Gonz, God's Girls' Coco Velvett and her boyfriend Jeremy, AVN photographer Gia Jordan (MySpace), and XBIZ reporters Tod Hunter and Joanne Cachapero.

This was the largest Vivid-Alt party thus far, not just in terms of sheer size but crowd turnout as well. And arguably the loudest, as it was the first to feature live music, with performances by Sons and Lovers (MySpace), Crystal Antlers (MySpace), and Restaurant (MySpace).

More photos (don't worry, they're SFW), and a video of DeArmond chatting with firefighters (who had been dispatched to investigate a complaint against the Warehouse) after the jump.
