Last Sunday's Thrashed Swag warmed my crackled, arid heart. In addition to having one of theraddest posters ever
, this hip hop/street art/skateboarding showcase was hosted byBig J.
and featured music by Topic, Raw Elementz, Human Resources, JT of Brain Gang, Hyper Uppercuti and N.O.V.A. Most importantly, it's great to see kids skating in front of wild style graffiti and generally being awesome on a Sunday afternoon.
Today, WolfPat Films posted this wrap-up video about the event. It all went down at the Guapo Skillz Center. Cheers, guys. We want more.
