Issue 34 Launch SYD / NYC
Posted By Kieran – 21.03.2012
Right now at a bar on the LES of NYC, Issue 34 is being launched with a lil shin dig hosted by MC and the good people at Gravis. Wonder if cover one star Richard Prince, shot by Peter Sutherland, will grace them with his presence? Cover two star, make girl weak at the kneeser, Dylan Rieder, just finished the MC X Corona East Coast surf and skate trip and decided a little party was needed to unveil Gravis/Analog/Alien team manager, Cameron Sparkes, new hair do. The results are seen here at Ching - A - Lings, in Sydney, last night....Mags are being distributed/sent /delivered around the country as we speak with a full on-sale by mid next week. All images courtesy of our man Thomas at Hobogestapo.
Los Angelenos, make sure to catch the Blank Tapes perform at the Satellite, Friday, May 31st, as they celebrate the release of their latest record, Vacation, which after having a listen to the groovy tunes makes me want to pack up the van and do just that. The evening also brings you sets from fellow favorites The Abigails and Jeffertitti's Nile.
A whopping $8 bones. Get at it.
As introduction to this years Surf Film Festival, those crazy Spanish dudes have made a mockumentary series about searching for the perfect wave. Definitely the most insane and ridiculous, filming the festival has been part of all leading up to the official image of Surf Film Festival 11.

Heaps of music, good films from Thomas Cmapbell, Taylor Stelle, Patrick Trefz and many more, all to be announced on the 30th of May.
Chapter 1: The boat leaves for new adventure

The ourCASTE Quick Cuts series are a bi-monthly collaborative release from a community of enthusiasts interpreting the things they love through different mediums influenced by the sub-cultures that connect us all.
Visualising a story of places they've been, people they've met and experiences shared together, ourCASTE seek to be a curator of sorts to the youth and an outlet for those weird, left brain ideas to be projected to that otherwise wouldn't necisarily have a home for. The end goal aiming to be a series entirely created by contributors.
