Art'N'Soul San Jose: Third Times the Charm

Last night we had another Art'N'Soul party at San Jose's Voodoo Lounge. The music was bumpin' nad the action was fast and furious. I really dug the Midtones, who played an early set. On the steel wheels we had DJ RS2 and CoCo.

CoCo Peace

The headline band was TrashKannon. Those guys were nuts.

Some familiar faces hit the skate ramp along with some newcomers. It took me a few times to get my lighting dialed in for shooting inside the dungeon that is Voodoo Lounge.

Peep the previous results on the blog and on my flickr from the two past events.

Bruce's Ramp Jam 8-7-2010

Bruce came into some skatelite left over from the X Games and redid the mini in his backyard. This was cause for celebration. About 15 minutes after the construction was complete, we showed up to document the skate frenzy and BBQ that ensued.

Party's Getting Rough

The skate surface was fast and furious.

Mike hooked up some new Skidmark Skatemag buttons. We discussed Skidds origins and poor spelling over beers in between laps on the ramp.

Jesse spent time coaxing his grom buddies to drop in on the ramp, rolling blunts, and throwing down feeble grinds.

One Chance Tych

Three local youngsters showed up to sample the new goods. To be honest, they skated harder and faster than most of the older dudes. Here's Justin, Jesse, and Tanner.

Justin BS Feeble

Jesse Front 5-0

Tanner Extension Rock

The fastest and most aggressive runs of the night belonged to Jack. He was rippin' as usual. Here's a deadly backside feeble.

Thanks to Bruce and the VS crew for inviting us to help bring in the new ramp in style.
