September 25th 2009—King Cat Theater. Thank Thank’s Cool Story movie Premier helped everyone sadly say goodbye to summer, and embrace fall by getting everyone excited for the winter ahead! King Cat Theater started filling up Friday evening with people grabbing a drink, catching up with old friends, making new friends and getting excited about the features of the evening.
This week evo will be the victim of artistic vandalism! The fine folks at Spacecraft started today on what will be a weeklong installation on the west side of evo’s Fremont location. The work is in celebration of this weekend’s Spacecraft Art Opening and the premier of Wild Card’s “How the Northwest was one” on October 2.
Right now the shop looks like a kindergarten arts and crafts session, but the mess will soon turn into a 20ft tall masterpiece of true Spacecraft style. Come by everyday to watch the progress, check out all the new Spacecraft apparel, and get covered with wheat paste!

Last week, the entire skateboarding community found themselves mourning the untimely death of Erik Stricker, editor of Transworld SKATEboard, who passed away early last week.
Stricker joined the Transworld SKATEboard family in 2002 where he quickly made a name for himself as an incredibly hard worker and devoted friend. His passion for skateboarding came through every page of the magazine, and his love for his friends and family was truly admirable.
Eric will be sorely missed. We have his family and friends in our thoughts.
