My Favorite Taco

My Favorite Taco ~ Gary Richards, Founder of HARD

GARY RICHARDS, who DJs as DESTRUCTO is a legend in the LA dance music scene. From warehouse events to the city's biggest parties, HARD has grown into one of the largest and most innovative electronic music promoters in the world. This weekend's HARD: Day of the Dead will bring tens of thousands of people to downtown Los Angeles for a two day festival featuring every aspect of the dance music scene. What's it like to be Gary in the days before a massive undertaking like Day of the Dead? See him at work and at home in the video above, which was directed by Zeke Piestrup.

What we really wanted to know is where DESTRUCTO gets his tacos. So, Gary, what's your favorite taco?

"La Playita in Venice. 3306 Lincoln. Their tacos are great, but I go for the ceviche."

Thank you, Gary!
