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

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!

Lux Bmx Store is the new kid on the block in the 4000 and let me start off by stating, this is by far the best looking store in Brisbane. The guys who run it are people who know what the fuck they are doing and doing it with focus, which more than often is missing from new upstarts. With a vast selection of core BMX gear and a good mix of casual wear and accessories its definitely not to be missed, next time you are in the Valley. I did do a interview with them but due to unforseen newbness I screwed up the footage and need to visit them again to do their lush establishment justice.

– T, take a better look around inside this handsome store
