Art n Soul 2: Electric Boogaloo

I got the word early this week that DJ RS2 was throwing another Art'n'Soul event at the Voodoo. Last time around, the place was bangin' and there was some serious skateboarding on a little quarter pipe right in front of the stage. Wednesday night was no different. Hailing from Santa Cruz, Dusted Angel took the state and rocked some music I'm having a hard time describing. One site I found called them "doom rock" whatever that means.

There were a few familiar faces including a pair of Deejays who helped me setup last go around as well as the whole local skate crew, referred to on the handbill as "Nog's Dogs."

Also in the house was Mike 3.5, a rad artist blowin' up his canvas right in the midst of all the action.

Check out his site as well at 3.5 ink.

Armed with a camera descendent from the heavens, fellow Eye-Fi'er and photographer Caroline showed for her first try at shooting skateboarding action. You should check out her site as well, Sphynge Photography.

Ok, enough with the introductions, let's get to the skate action shall we.

As usual, Blake was killing the spot. He said in a recent post that he's able to blank everything out about the environment and just skate. No wonder than, he slayed the QP with a shit-eating grin all night. Here's a look at a B/S - F/S combo of his Smith Grinds.

To get the full effect of all the madness going on, I slipped past the velvet ropes and headed upstairs where a Metro videographer was filming the festivities.

Noggin, runnin' roughshod on that QP.

We wound up outside trying to get some fresh air in the smoking section of all places. Here's Noggin and Juan, two originals holding court.
