Thursday 23rd June marks the opening night of The Outposts seventh annual ‘I used to skate once’ art show.  If you’re not familiar with the concept, the premise is: skaters past and present customise a blank skateboard which will be on display at the show and available for purchase.  The venue for this years opening party is The Zoo on Ann Street, in Fortitude Valley.  Festivities will run from 7pm to 1am and we’ll be there to view the art, take stills and video and have a drink of course.

– S, see you there

Showcasing some of the most talented press photographers in the world, the annual World Press Photo exhibition hit The Powerhouse in Brisbane last Saturday.  Running until Sunday 26th June, I highly recommend making a trip down to New Farm to check it out, make sure to head downstairs, where you’ll find the more provocative images.

– S, check out what’s on offer



Red Bull Wreckers Yard Feat. David Dallas by Taz

The Brisbane leg of Red Bull Wreckers Yard went down this past Thursday and the 4000 crowd came out in full force to show love. It was a night of some great head to head battles, the best piece of the night was definitely the “No Hope!” flip by Gimicks who ended up taking the whole thing. The event was blessed with a surprise performance by David Dallas, who recently dropped his latest mixtape The Rose Tint. We had a pretty good night getting tweaked on Red Bull and Ironlak fumes, haha.

– T, more dopeness after the flip!
