Michael Burnett's "Full Blast" Brooklyn Photos

On Friday, Aug 11th, House of Vans Brooklyn hosted Thrasher magazine's one-and-only Mike Burnett, celebrating his Full Blast: 20 Years of Skate Photography art show which included performances by Bad Shit, Slashers and DJ Juan Love (aka John Cardiel). The night began with an open skate jam where locals shredded the park and many near collisions ensued. Band performances followed and a 30ft wide circle pit formed with enthusiastic fans tackling each other from opposite sides. Before long, most were beer soaked and bruised, but happy nonetheless. —Jonathan Mehring

    Slash: The Thrasher Interview
    Slash reached Rock God status decades ago with Guns N’ Roses. We figured the guitar legend would be out of reach for an interview. Then we heard through the grapevine that he was down with the mag, so we gave it a shot. The rest is history.

    Slashers' "5 Mile Grind" Skate Art Video
    Many music videos have incorporated skating. No big deal. But the band Slashers and the artist Dylan Goldberger combined forces for a truly psycho skate trip. This blend is so complete that it's tough to spot any divisions between skating, music, and art.
