Origins of Bears In Space - Founded by Chris Bowen and Victor Rodriguez , Bears in Space (an homage to NYC radio show "Beats in Space") began in 2009 at L.A.'s Akbar , and the party still continues as a seasonal event. Victor Rodriguez has been a part of building the LA club scene since the late 80’s and early 90’s through his association with such clubs as White Chocolate, Plastic Passion, and Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride. In the late 90's he teamed up with Billy Erb in bringing the legendary NYC party "Beige" to Los Angeles. It was a huge success that lasted 11 years and set a new standard in LA nightlife. Through his collaboration with DJ Chris Bowen in 2008 under the Critter Control collective, they helped established a re-birth of downtown queer club culture with their party "Shits & Giggles”, and later with Cub Scout and and their current incarnation; Bears in Space. They regularly showcase such talents as DJ Harvey, Eric Duncun, Lovefingers & Heidi Lawden, Justin Van Der Vluegan, Andy Butler, Pat Mahoney, Horse Meat Disco, Daniel Wang, Tim Sweeney, Honcho, Optimo, Honey Sound System, Discodromo, among many others. The parties have received wide critical success and they have taken Bears in Space to other cities such as Palm Springs, P-town, Vancouver and every other month in Mexico City. Rodriguez has recently shared billing with the likes of Lauer, Zombies in Miami, Intergalictic Gary, Hugo Capablanca, Jennifer Cardini and Carry Nation, playing across Europe, Canada, Mexico, Colombia and the US. His current monthly residences include, Cub Scout, Bears in Space, Bears in Space CDMX, Discoteca at The Ace Hotel DTLA, and Palm Springs. After the success of the duo's first party, Bowen and Rodriguez jointly began Cub Scout in 2010, a wilderness-themed party hosted by San Francisco's Lady Bear at Eagle L.A. in Silver Lake. Bowen has since gone on to share billing with the likes of DJ Harvey, Optimo (Espacio), Discodromo, Session Victim, Andy Butler (Hercules & Love Affair), Pat Mahoney (LCD Soundsystem), Dimitri from Paris, Horse Meat Disco, The Black Madonna, Daniel Wang (Balihu Records), and Tim Sweeney (Beats in Space), to name a few.
