Eagle Rock Music Festival 2011

(image taken from http://centerartseaglerock.org/index.php/music_festival)

That’s right!  Going down October 1st, Eagle Rock will be hosting their annual music festival on Colorado Blvd, past Eagle Rock Blvd, from 4:00PM – 11:00PM.  I live in the area so the only complaint I have is the lack of parking  spaces on and around my block – I do wish they had a designated parking area for people checking out the festival.  But what’s dope about this event is Low End Theory has returned to kill the festival again with their raw sound.  Featured DJ’s on stage are DJ D-StylesDaddy KevGaslamp Killer and Flying Lotus.

Nike Mag Shoes

I can’t believe Nike just dropped these shoes for 2011.  It’s a replica of the Nike shoes Marty McFly wore in Back To The Future II.  These mags will be sold exclusively on ebay and all proceeds will go to the Michael J Fox Foundation to help find a cure to end Parkinson’s disease.  So if you love the movie and the shoes, try to see if you can bid on these expensive shoes.
