Empire Backyard Pre-Party and Three 6 Mafia

Posted on Saturday, August 27, 2011 by Rob

The finishing touches are being put on the ramp the night before.
The entire place is surrounded by real grass on the decks.
Watch out for boards in the hot tub.
This masterpiece of Canadian gangsterism was found on the streets of Montreal.
Out front at da club waiting for Three 6 Mafia. It's about to get gangsta.
Wow, a coat check. You don't see that in Florida. Also doubles as a skateboard check.
Of course you're going to find Lutzka in the club. He and Aquil are hanging out all weekend. Darkstar is on tour and Selfish sponsored the BYP.
The club part of the club. This is probably where the snowboarders are.
Schaefer and Joey Tershay, up in da club.
Justin Strubing is skating right after Three 6 Mafia starts a riot in this bitch.
Shortly after this, bottles were smashing behind me and 10 thugs were getting dragged out.
20 cops showed up faster than I've ever seen.
I forgot his name, but he skated Tampa Am years ago and now reps clothing up here in Montreal. Check the live webcast of all this Backyard Party madness at 4pm at push.ca/byp.
