Lakai X Emerica Stay Flared Demo In Chicago

Last weekend in Chicago was insane. Hockey playoffs, an Electronic Music Festival, torrential downpours...oh yeah, and Damn Am of course. That was the whole reason we went. Lucky for us, there was one more big event happening and we got to catch it: The Lakai X Emerica "Stay Flared" demo. Frank got some photos of us lurking and skating. Check those out here.

#TBT Pat Burke Radio Television

We need a status update on Pat Burke. Please chime in if you know what’s been doing. Either way, Slave’s Radio Television video had a unique vibe and at the time it looked like it might help Slave become the next great company. That never happened. Still, Pat had my favorite part in the video for the sole reason that he looked like he was having the most fun. True he was hanging on for dear life on most of his tricks, but it worked for him. Pat and Slave deserve better than whatever they got, but what are you going to do about it. Nothing but re-watch the part probably, and that’s okay.
