NightCause: Party for Paula

  • Townhouse & The Del Monte 52 Windward Avenue Venice, CA, 90291 United States (map)

NightCause is excited to return to Townhouse & The Del Monte on Thursday May 23rd for a pre-summer shindig! Our lineup features Marques Wyatt, Loboman, Henry Pope, and Peace In Noise. A donation of $20 grants you entry to the evening.

This event will be raising funds for a pillar of the Los Angeles dance community, Paula Chorley. Paula has been an active and inspiring supporter of both NightCause and Genius Loci since their inceptions. If you have had the pleasure of meeting Paula, her energy is infectious and she always brings the best vibes. Nearly 10 months ago, Paula was involved in an accident that left her badly concussed. The road to recovery from this head injury has been a rocky one. Medical bills have piled up and her head trauma has kept her from being able to work. The NightCause and Genius Loci teams, along with the gracious support of Marques Wyatt, have come together to create a benefit that will help a dear friend in need.

About Marques Wyatt (DEEP Los Angeles):
Sonic love travels in many dimensions and as it relates to music, Marques Wyatt is a seminal pioneer and is undoubtedly one of the most respected DJ's in the United States and a West Coast legend. In addition to producing some of LA's most legendary clubs/events, many associate him with "DEEP," the illustrious event that he nurtured in his hometown of Los Angeles - thriving and continuing today for well over 19 years. He is one of the few DJ's that have managed to cross pollinate audiences and merge at least two generations of music fans on his dance floors. Thus, he is in demand at clubs, as well as on the festival circuit alike, stateside and abroad. Marques' unerring, knowledgeable selections are sure to stir up some emotions and known to turn huge dance floors into intimate rituals.

About Loboman (Genius•Loci FEST):
LOBOMAN started dropping beats in the summer of 2010 at House Parties in Venice Beach, CA, his adopted hometown.

He got his DJ skills from his brother Alejandro (aka MASSIO) who taught him how to get people groovin' on the dance floor.

Nowadays you can catch a Loboman DJ quite regularly at underground parties on LA's Westside, but also at the private events he throws down in Baja Mexico.

About Henry Pope (Genius•Loci FEST):
Originally inspired by the tunes of his Floridian upbringing, Pope was committed to his early music education that, eventually, led him to the University of Colorado at Boulder. Although he now makes Venice Beach his home, Henry Pope has rocked international crowds in Canada, India, Nepal, Costa Rica, Mexico, and Europe.

Closer to home, his musical mastery has been enjoyed by discerning crowds at Coachella, Burning Man, Source Festival, One Love Festival, Lightning In A Bottle, Lucidity, Envision, Genius Loci, and with the Lucent Dossier Experience. He is a veteran of the stage, who, as a bassist, has toured with various national artists including indie favorite, Small Flowers, where he revealed his skills as a writer and producer.

Pope also co-produces Genius Loci FEST in Mexico, an exciting kaleidoscope of surfing, music, yoga, and environmental activism.


The NightCause team is comprised of Jenna Anton, Kate Galliers, Guy Merin, and Jay Taylor, along with the DJ duo Peace In Noise. We have joined forces with Townhouse & The Del Monte to curate a night of music, dancing, and positive community engagement. See you soon!
