Before the park started they used to go down there and drink beers. Someone suggested making some tranny and the legend was born. Since 1990 'til now, Burnside in Portland, OR has stood as a monument to 'Do It Yourself' spots everywhere. Take a look back to a simpler time that made the blueprint for all under bridge creations. Burnside then, Burnside now, Burnside forever. Peep the first generation lurkers in action. Mark Scott for President. –Jake Phelps

Dustin Dollin graces the cover of the September issue, screeching a hellacious 180 nosegrind at the Hollywood Bowl. The hits keep coming inside: Matt Bennett, Jake Donnelly and Wes Kremer get grilled; Element traverses Taiwain; Vol 4 hits the road (and the spliffs) for SXSW; a 16-page photo feature blows some stoke in your eyes; EMB OG James Kelch talks Classic Graphics and Cory Kennedy talks some shit. Yeah, that'll do it. Add this one to your collection.
