Leo Valls spreads a little wisdom

via @monsterchildren

Pro skater Leo Valls convinced officials in one of France’s biggest cities, Bordeaux, to let the people skate.

The Magenta pro and longtime Bordeaux local’s inspiring story was documented in a new film by DC, and we were lucky enough to screen it at 1700 Naud the other night. A solid crowd turned out for the film and photo exhibition at our DTLA space, and the man of the hour even jumped on the mic to impart wisdom and tips on how we can all move towards decriminalizing skating in our own hometowns. Leo Valls for prez, 2020. Check out all the action from a very worthwhile project below, then go watch the full documentary here.

A bit of everything from our party with Good Brands

We’re hit the road with our friends at goodbrands—purveyors of damn good weed—this summer to feature some of our favorite creative people around California and throw a few epic parties.

The stop on the itinerary was Los Angeles, and artist Adri Law showed us around and took us to see her Paradise Road Show.

To wrap it all up, we hosted a party at 1700 Naud. Wavves played an epic show that led to a proper moshpit, there was flash tattoos by Graham Harrington, screen printing, photo booth, pizza, beer, a photo show, a video screening and so much more.
