Art 'n' Soul: 3 bands, Dj's, Art, Live Art Plus skateboarding.

Voodoo Lounge San Jose played host for the Art 'n' Soul bash Thursday night featuring 3 bands, Dj's, art, live art plus skateboarding.

Back up to Tax Day, April 15th 2010. Noggin had just thrown down his signature one-footer on this sculpture outside Roosevelt Skatepark.

A nice B&W treatment of the shot was sent off to Low Card in honor of Nog's beanie.

Nog was stoked to get some additional shots in anticipation of his art show. Few details were known at that point. Art, live music, booze. Sounds good.

A few days later the flyer for the event was getting drawn up. The B&W one-footer was selected. Hail yea! Bands were detailed, deejays listed, artists given their billing. How would skaters be able to slay in the middle of a bar with a live band playing?

Here's how:

Aww shit!

Everyone was having a great time. Devin Scott got some and got some.

I had the chance to meet Noggin's mom at the event. She's cooler than your mom.


Juan was in the house as well. Back from the D/L list, he took no pause at getting all over the ramp, no doubt after some "mota"-vation.

Yea Juan!

The heaviest hitter of the ramp was definitely Blake. He was smiling and laughing all night and pushing the other skaters to new heights. At this point, he had transferred off the ramp to the artist's stage on the left then kickflipped off.

In addition to the number of fine females in the audience, at least one took to the ramp to show the boys how its done.

Some folks took a break from all the activity to throw a few back.


Here's more of Blake killing it.

We closed the place down by around 2AM and headed out to recover from all that booze!
