The band with the name you love to hate, Diarrhea Planet, are back with a free track from the folks at Adult Swim Singles. "Spooners" is a another guitar overloaded, sweaty shredder, from the Nashville six piece. Dramatic pauses and breakdowns included. Make sure to smash up to San Diego’s Soda Bar with us on Aug 10th. Don’t let Monday ruin your Sunday.

Returning for its 9th year and with a new location, the Sector 9 Go Skateboarding Day Poker Run was back with a bang... or a bean. The group skated to Robb Field in Ocean Beach to set off the 1st annual Go Skate Day Dodgeball Tournament. Food, giveaways, and fist-fulls of cash were only the beginning as dodgeballers sacrificed their bodies in the name of skateboarding.
Lapping around for another year, the Sector 9 x Pocono Skate Race was a fast success. Thanks to the Pocono Raceway, Kyle Petty, Frankie Walsh, and all the riders who participated in the race. We cant wait to burn rubber and urethane with you all again next year!
