It’s A Cold Night For Alligators!…

Last night, Roky Erickson played @ The El Rey Theatre in L.A.
For those who are musically retarded, Roky was the former frontman of the 13th Floor Elevators back in the 60’s. He is definitely a true pioneer of Psychedelic Rock ‘n’ Roll. Being a big fan of this music, I was PSYCHED to hear him play live for the first time along with The Night Beats. It was no surprise that Active Pros, @nuge666, @killerpizza, @wishdeath, & @bakedmophead were spotted there too!

this is a great blog post, it reminds me why i think active needs to go back to 100% skateboarding and how it initially wasin the first place. when active became super well known and stoked about, it was the original skate shop vibe that everyone fell in love with. unfortunately the past years its been morphing into a corporate retail mall store far away from its roots. Active has so much potential to gain back the respect it deserves and be the real skateshop its supposed to be.
