Today marks the official start of summer and it's time to find relief from the heat, especially if you find yourself stuck in an urban jungle without an out-of-town invite for the weekend. Edgy urban pool parties have popped up in recent years all over the country including Brooklyn's infamous dumpster pool parties

Coast, I checked out a mixed but predominantly boys crowd at a downtown Los Angeles daytime party called SummerTramp. Entrenched in a warehouse district, the wet and sometimes wild party sits on an astro-turfed parking lot the last Sunday of each summer month. Complete with water slide, water guns, and an above ground pool, this party guarantees a rollicking good time. Libations, DJ'd music and a taco truck complete the scene which is a mix of downtown hipsters and L.A.'s gay fabulous.
