"It's summer here year-round!" long-lashed babe-dappled postcards boast about our state, like it's so easy to toss your hair when it's stuck to the back of your neck. But with most locals feeling that end-of-summer grump, Body//Talk steps up to say what we're all really feeling: Fuck. Summer.

This Saturday, Aug. 16, find the party people flooding the Milk District for Body//Talk's Fuck Summer (RSVP), featuring a Mr. 3-led kickoff, bands and DJs at Sandwich Bar and Spacebar (VSN QST, GRÜVV, Sage Armstrong, Jai Biotic, Frankasaurus Fresh), and a special summer-camp-themed zone with face-painting, jump rope and hopscotch. Maybe if we're lucky, things will get so freaky, you'll swear you feel that first nip of fall in the air (but that will probably just be the night's overarching vibe, keeping things chill).
