Dudebox Dear Summer

Don’t wash your hands. Don’t wash your feet. Don’t brush your teeth. Because we’re kissing summer goodbye with a daytime, outdoor gathering we call Dear Summer.

Now, you may be wondering if you should in fact be brushing your teeth and the answer of course is yes, because 42.7% of adults suffer from gingivitis. That’s facts bruh, your eatin’ rocks are covered in plaque. Brush your fucking teeth guy, you’re literally full of dirt.

We’ll talk a bit more about dental health at the party, where you can also:

→ immerse yourself in giant art installations

→ eat one too many burgers by Burger Drops

→ debate exactly when Eminem became a complete piece of shit (hint: at the start)

→ chase the demons away with some Skyy drinkies + other boozy treats

→ try some hand-crafted mocktails that are simultaneously healing. Yes we said healing.

→ BYOD (bring your own dog)

→ buy cool things made by local people

→ get sweet stuff from Aurora for free when you come in

This is basically your last chance to be outside with friends holding a drink in hand wearing basically nothing tbh. Cause pretty soon we’ll all be inside with our comfy socks on rewatching Family Matters and realizing that we used to laugh at things that are completely unacceptable. Some of you don’t get that reference, which is also completely unacceptable.


We’ll be creating a dream-like environment with large-scale installations featuring hand-painted, silk-screened and projected work. The Dear Summer vision is based on the inherent nostalgia and emotional response tied to the changing of seasons, letting go, saying goodbye, and holding on to abstracted memories.

...As the Summer and the sun fades, the work will come aglow...
