Agenda Adds Live Music To The Mix

by The Editors on July 18, 2017

We didn’t attend Agenda. In fact, we haven’t been to one of the shows for what seems like years now (2014 it seems), but truth up, no one called to say they missed us so guess we’re all good. Luckily, LA Weekly went this year so we got the word on this year’s summer Agenda show from an outside source. Which is a good thing every once in a while.

Here’s a sample of what LA Weekly’s Ivan Fernandez had to share:

The layout was such that everyone had to walk through the pop-up shops area first before arriving to either music stage. That’s probably why most of the people arriving to watch the Beat Junkies were dressed in new shirts branded with cartoon characters, or sporting new pairs of limited-edition kicks imported from Japan, or strapped with giant novelty backpacks large enough to carry three average-sized toddlers.

Kind of bummed we missed Tyler. . . again, but don’t think we missed much else. Click the link for the rest.

by The Editors on July 13, 2017

When you think of all the crime going down in the city of San Francisco on July 11, 2017 it’s good to know that the San Francisco Police Department would allow so many of their officers to hang out a catch all the action at Dolores Park.

CJ Olivares New CEO of SLS’s ETN

by The Editors on June 22, 2017

Street League Skateboarding’s video on demand channel ETN got a serious boost on June 22, 2017 when it was announced that Fuel TV founder CJ Olivares would be the new CEO.

“Finding an executive like CJ to lead the business into the next chapter is like finding a unicorn,” said SLS founder and Chairman of the Board Rob Dyrdek. “There are no other people I know that have run a global channel of the magnitude that he has with the unique programming mix of skateboarding, live events, and irreverent original shows. He is a perfect fit to take ETN to the next level and developing SLS into the future.”

This seems like a perfect fit. No one in action sports television has done a better job of bridging the gap between TV execs and skateboarders than Olivares and he seems happy about this new chapter.

“Taking the helm of ETN Media is an amazing opportunity to continue to build a game-changing platform that can engage and entertain skateboarding audiences around the world. The team’s early efforts to create original, must-see programming have already struck a chord with a global fan base and this is just the beginning.” Olivares continues, ”In terms of SLS, there is an exciting opportunity for continued international expansion on the road to skateboarding’s debut at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.”

We’re looking forward to seeing what Olivares can pull together this time around. For the official word from SLS, please follow the jump.

Built To Fail: A Streetwear Story

by The Editors on June 16, 2017

No shock to anyone really, but we’ve never understood the “streetwear” thing. We know what it’s like to desire every single piece of kit we’d see on our favorite skaters, surfers, and snowboarders, but we never got our heads around the fetishization of those clothes by people who seemed to be more into the fashion (and we mean that in an East Coast/NYC way) than the skateboarding. We’re hoping Bobby Hundreds‘ new documentary Built To Fail: A Street Wear Story will finally enlighten us.

BUILT TO FAIL: A STREETWEAR STORY takes you through the history of streetwear, including the subculture of LA’s surf & skate scene, the punk rock scene, and the rise of graffiti street art out of NY. The film features interviews with Tommy Hilfiger, Russell Simmons, A$AP Rocky, Benny Gold, and​ ​LA-based designers such as Eli Bonerz (X-Large), “Bobby Tribal” Ruiz (Tribal), and​ ​Rick Klotz (Freshjive).

Built To Fail premiere’s this Saturday, June 17, 2017 at the Los Angeles Film Festival at 8:35pm at the ArcLight Santa Monica. For more info click the link.
