In the midst of this SF heatwave, we are looking ahead to an even hotter weekend. This Friday bay area bass heavies are going to be throwing a Release Party for the I Love Japan Vol.001 Compilation brought to you by SF based non profit org Hearts of Bass, the proceeds go directly to Japan earthquake victims. The Comp is out now on Beatport- I have been listening to it non stop since I got it- it’s some seriously high quality bass! This show on friday is going to feature some of my personal favorites: Megalodon, Carrier (once apart of NTRLD) and Sam Supa- if you’re in the bay, I definitely suggest coming out to this event!
Now things may get a little strange towards the end of this weekend with the How Weird Street Faire taking over Howard and Second Street this Sunday, May 1st (not to mention the clubs surrounding for Pre and After parties). But let’s be real, being weird can be pretty fun. With diverse arts and music we are in for an interesting Sunday afternoon! I’ll be out there contact juggling- bring the face paint and get ready for some fun!
Every week leading up to the release of To Live & Ride in L.A., TRAFIK will be releasing exclusive content from the DVD only at http://www.TRAFIKLA.com . Today’s video features fixed gear pioneer Keo Curry hitting up one of L.A.’s classic skate spots, Bronson Ditch.
To Live & Ride in L.A. will be available on iTunes & DVD – 6/21/2011 – The first day of summer.
To Live & Ride in L.A. has been widely received as the freshest movie on fixed-gear culture since Rowe’s Fast Friday. Shot entirely on the streets of L.A. To Live & Ride in L.A. has been called an “authentic look into the what, where, and now of aggressive urban biking” by URB Magazine. The film was chosen as official selections at both the 2010 Hawaii International Film Festival and the 2010 Los Angeles Bicycle Film Festival and has toured the world on a screening circuit that included stops in Melbourne, Shanghai, Taipei, Las Vegas, Honolulu, Perth and Adelaide, Australia.
For those of you more inclined for risk taking- take note. Sunday, May 8th marks the day of the Alpine Meadows Mad Cow Downhill, a top to bottom, winner take all race. Details:
“Alpine Meadows has saved the best event of the season for spring: an annual cult favorite, the Mad Cow Downhill beckons all speed lovin’ skiers and snowboarders to wax up their downhill gear for this annual top-to-bottom race. A mass start for one ski division and one snowboard division will be heard by all when the Alpine Meadows ski patrol detonates an avalanche charge to signify the start. Racers can choose whichever descent route they deem fastest from the top of the Summit Six chair all the way to the base lodge. The skier and snowboarder who reach the finish first snag a 2011/2012 Midweek Plus Sunday season pass which will hang from the finish line arch. Start time is 2pm. Entry for the Annual Mad Cow Downhill is free and will take place on the base lodge sun deck. Helmets are required to race.”
Free season pass? Thats right. Get after it!
