Philly Bones Brigade Premiere

Words & Photos: Phil Jackson

Vans organized a premiere of the Bones Brigade documentary for Go Skateboarding Day in Philly this year. Free tickets and an Open Bar got everyone's attention, and you can't beat air conditioning when it's 95 degrees out. Their place was mobbed and good times were had by all.
