LIVE BLOCK PARTY 2009!!!

Hey all, don’t forget about the Live Stock Block Party this weekend if any of you happen to be in the Vancouver area. Rumor has it that this is going to be the last Live Stock Block Party in Van so it should be pretty insane.  Myself, Coulson and Josh(Live Stock Calgary) will be out there blacking out so stay tuned for photos if you can’t make it out there.

SMILE ON YOUR BROTHER

show copy

con·trib·utor
noun
1. A person who gives to a charity or cause: benefactor, benefactress, donator, donor, giver. See give/take/reciprocity.

2. A person who supports or champions an activity, cause, or institution, for example: backer, benefactor, friend, patron, sponsor, supporter. Informal angel.

3. A person instrumental in the growth of something, especially in its early stages: builder, creator, developer, pioneer.

About Contributor:

The idea behind Contributor is pretty simple: skateboards for all. Although this seems like a very generous statement, it’s something that we truly believe is possible and within all of our reach.

Today, there are approximately 1.6 million kids living in poverty across Canada. The negative effects of poverty are very significant and limiting for those who are affected by it on a daily basis, but are especially difficult for youth. For these youth things that we take for granted – let’s say, the simple action of going out to play with friends on a skateboard – seem unattainable. Without access to a positive support through a group of peers and healthy alternatives to focus on, these kids can lose their way.

By working with non-profit organizations across Canada, who are dedicated to youth at risk and children in lower-income neighborhoods, we hope to encourage successful outcomes through the addition of skateboarding as a positive reinforcement.

There is so much to be said about how skateboarding can improve lives and build friendships between people who would’ve otherwise been strangers; heck that’s why this organization exists!

Contributor allows all of us to come together and give a new generation of kids that same opportunity.

Using original shaped skate decks as canvas’, artists across the world will put in their two cents in order to be a Contributor of this traveling art show. The “Smile On Your Brother” show, conceived by Mike Giles and Annie Lam and co-curated by Bob Kronbauer of Club Mumble, serves as a fundraiser for the 1.6 million kids living in poverty in Canada. The 50 custom decks, which are to be auctioned off, will raise money into providing 100 skateboards to kids, in hope of giving them some positive encouragement.

Contributing artists include Andrew Pommier, Andy Jenkins, Bob Kronbauer, Parra, Chinatown Soccer Club, Chris Pastras, Cody Hudson, and so on. To see full list of artists check: http://www.wearecontributors.com/index.php?/ongoing/events/

…So there’s a little bit of whats going down with the show. It’ll be at the Calgary Livestock Sept. 4th, from 8-11pm.
Don’t sleep on this! The show promises great art, great people, and it’s helping out an even greater cause…How can you lose?!?
See you ALL there.

First in Line

The madness has begun and we have our first 3 dudes in line to secure their pair of Yeezy’s.  They arrived at 10:30am and have a 24 hr camp out session ahead of them.  It’s +4 degrees outside and the forecast is calling for snow tonight.  Hopefully that forecast is wrong for their sake.  Sizes are limited so if you want a pair better get your ass down here and join them in line.

Live Stock Grand Opening

The Live Stock doors will be set to open this Saturday June 6th, so get your lawn chairs out and come sleep in front of our doors.  Not sure if you have checked out the Live Stock blog but 2 dudes at the Toronto location have already started camping out 5 days before the drop of the new colorway of Nike Air Yeezys which will be happening on Saturday.  Crazy.  So if you want a pair you may have to do the same here in Calgary.  Hope to see you all on Saturday, it should be pretty insane.
