In a move only Jack White could make, he recorded, mastered, pressed, and sold a record all in one day. Fans were on hand at Nashville’s Third Man Records to take witness to the miracle on Record Store Day. In a matter of hours after hearing it laid down live, lucky rockers walked away with a copy. Hear the blistering 45 RPM single “Lazeretto” here.
What’s your favorite indie record store? Ours is M-Theory in Mission Hills, so join us there this Saturday in support of Record Store Day. Come get cultured on what makes music great, score limited releases, and even win a skateboard!
The MuirSkate Downhill Disco is getting bigger each year and the tricks are following suit! Chance Gaul stomps a clean run with big tricks while Michelle Steilen mixes it up for the Niners by bringing her 8 wheel style to the course.
In some kind of perfect world LA’s all girl psych dreamers, Warpaint, met up with director/former pro skater, Laben Pheidias, to make a double video. The result is our latest band crush dancing in the street and night skating with Justin Eldridge and our old friend Kris Markovich. This weekend you can find us swaying to Warpaint’s woozy set at Coachella.
Somewhere between the surf and the streets is where the Striker makes its home. Easy cruising and aggressive carving is where this board shines. While pumping down the boardwalk you may find yourself dreaming of right-handers and tropical getaways.
Billy Fortier is a pool shark. Not the kind you find smoldering at your local bar, but the kind that builds renegade bowls in the jungle, will jump any fence for a few runs, plus has access to private backyards like the Cholos Bowl.
Another episode from the Skatesgiving crew highlights antics between friends, high speed downhill skating, and a van load of good clean fun! Louis Pilloni and Matt Kienzle lead the charge for the 9-balls.
East Coast indie pop rockers White Laces are the new band that all the cool bands dig. This first track off their second album is a bright, fuzzed out roller that’s hard not to like. But really, we like it because it’s called “Skate or Die”.
