Thanks to Jim Beam, garlic, road miles, gas cards, Waters and crew, Monster, Contour, Sypniewski, and all the bands. Jaws, Raybourn, Gravette, and four SOTYs—one epic adventure. Hopefully another one is right around the corner...
Stopped in Oxford for a slice of suck, got into a jam and had to bail on Jackson. Made it to the Big Easy and lurked at an indoor bowl. 6am flight on Sunday, fuck this is what we do. —Jake Phelps
24 hours of Memphis. We bootlegged a show at the Gaslight and blew Altown out with an onslaught from Figgy, Gerwer, David Gonzalez, Gravette, Patlanta, and Raney. Some epic shit here kids!
St. Louis under the bridge, from the gutter to the stars. Here's Raney, Fardell, Gerwer, Riley Hawk and the crew. Also, this has one of the gnarliest spots on the trip; Hermann's Hole—a river dance nightmare.
Chillin' in Illinois. Chicago to Carbondale and then into St. Louis—Raybourn's out, Jaws and Gravette step in. Shop owner quote of the day after it was over, "Is there gonna be a product toss?"
It was only logical to begin the burning in Detroit Crack Rock City. Grant Taylor, Ben Raybourn, and a 40 man onslaught - Skate Rock begins now!
All of the madness; blood, guts, skateboarding, and tunes in one week. Starting the 15th—new towns, new slams, new freaks. Get ready, it's gonna be a long one—it's on! —Jake Phelps
Four bands, four SOTY's, and over 30 maniacs—this one's for the books. Detroit Skate Rock City starts Friday. Come one, come all...
When Skate Rock hits town anything is possible. What we're leaving is new faces and fresh blood. Are you down? See you on the Mississippi!
