This Saturday, September 27th, marks the Seattle premier of Ride The Sky. The video has been well received in the skate community so far and has even been hailed as one of the biggest releases of the year – even though the video itself hasn’t hit store shelves!
That evening there will be two separate showings of the movie. One, an all ages show at 35th North on Capitol Hill and another 21+ showing of it at the Central Saloon. Please note that while the showing is free at 35th North, it costs $10 at the Central Saloon which will serve as a donation for Seattle’s DYI Skatepark Marginal Way. Hope to see you at one of the premiers.
Central Saloon – 9PM – $10 – 21+
35th North – 7PM – Free – All Ages
Kr3w Apparel has expanded outside of the skateboarding market and has tapped into the fashion industry with their brand new NS line. Short for ‘Non Skate,’ the NS line features more sophistication and fashion-centric goods, as well as less logo placements on their garments. We’ve just received several pieces from the Fall NS line and they look amazing. The line is sold only in our Flagship store at this time.

For those of you familiar with the Absinthe crew and the films they’ve got under their belt I’m sure you are/were excited as I was for this showing. Not only was I pretty excited about my first snowboard movie premier of the season, I was definitely looking forward to checking out the King Cat Theater for the first time. Was a little nervous, too – it sounded a little posh for a snowboard movie premier.
The theater itself had a discrete, rustic exterior. Once inside the front doors, though, the space was clad with some mod furniture and there was a good vibe in the bar, which had large windows that peered to the streets of downtown seattle. After setting up some banners a couple of us hooved it down to the Lava Lounge for some drinks then got our grub on at the Noodle House (yum, btw). By the time we got back to the King Cat (fashionably late of course) there was a lineup all the way out the door, and the bar was slammed… literally overflowing the railed off section that the barstaff was trying to confine the drinkers to.
For a hot summer day it was surprising to see so many people cramming through the doors. It was still pretty light out at this point. Blair Habenicht, Wolfgang Nyvelt, Matt Beardmore were kind enough to sign autographs for the kids, the Spacecraft bunny made an appearance and Monster was getting us all hopped up on unnecessary levels of sugar. It wouldn’t be a premier without energy I suppose! Because so many of you slacked on coming down to the shop for pre-sale tickets, there was a massive backup out front for people buying tickets so they held off rolling the film at the scheduled 8p. But that was okay because there was plenty of entertainment. The mandatory raffle took place, there was some freestyle rappin, arm wrestling and handstands (no, really!).
So yeah, there was no real absinthe in Seattle – as far as i know that stuff is still not legal here. BUT the flick was the big mountain-deliciousness that we’ve all grown to know and love Absinthe for. We don’t want to spoil it so get out there and get the DVD!
