Komodo Block Party // is an Annual 5-part Summer Block Party taking place at the lively intersection of Pico & Robertson put together by the crew at Komodo. Happening on the last Fridays of every Summer month, from May-September- the Block Party is one of West LA's most celebrated events; bringing together foodies, music lovers & fashionistas, young and old alike.
Big shout out to Brandon Roosa of Classic Colour for designing our killer logo!
The Komodo Block Party originated in 2010, when the crew at Komodo wanted to shake up Pico & Robertson’s sleepy summer Fridays and drum up more business on Sabbath eve.
With tough determination, they managed to invite and convince a few of their food truck friends, a DJ and mobile fashion teams to storm the intersection. Turns out, 90035 has always been ready for an event like the Block Party; the rest is history.
Have an instagram account? Make sure to take your favorite snaps of the Block Party during your visit. The Komodo team will review and select their favorite instapics for a chance to win fun prizes, courtesy of Komodo.

DJ Syntax is a true music lover, incorporating various genres into her sets and curating music to establish a meaningful connection with her audience.
Like her name implies, Syntax values the precision and technique required to deliver music in a way that makes sense, is enjoyable, and often catches the listener by surprise.
We are thankful to have amazing partners and neighbors at Pico & Robertson, who helped us spread the word about the event and participate.
Shout out to our Komodo fans, Starbucks, Walgreens, Boulder Fitness, Radioshack, Roaming Hunger, Wells Fargo, Diabolo Beverage, Yelp and the wonderful people of Pico & Robertson.
