This last Saturday we walked off the beach and into a dimly lit rock bar. As with many times before, we saw friends, musicians, and regulars. But we hadn’t met LA’s Runson Willis and his outfit, Young Old Man, yet. We have now. The dudes simply took over the room.
Ground control to Sector 9, the Carbon Flight has landed. 5-plies of maple sandwiched between carbon fiber and fiberglass has never looked so good. This board comes complete with everything you need to glide across any paved surface... and some unpaved. Watch as the Downhill Division puts it through its paces.
After a 10 hour drive up the coast to Monterey, CA we arrived at the county fairgrounds where the 9-ball crew would be camping, debuting our custom collaboration deck, valeting bikes & boards, and enjoying some sweet reggae music. Thanks to everyone involved in making this festival a huge success, take a closer look here: https://www.facebook.com/sector9/caliroots2014
Please join Sector 9 and the Pocono Raceway for a push race around the NASCAR speedway to raise money for Victory Junction Gang Camp Charity. Yes we will be on the race track but without the Formula Ones. Come on out, cash for winners and tons of prizes.
Just in time for summer, Austin’s sweaty mess, OBN III’s drops their latest record today, 'Third Time To Harm'. The punk/garage outfit combines southern swing with an 80’s punk guitar charge that cooks up a super-fun swagger. The first single, “No Time For The Blues”, is soaked in Orville Bateman Neeley III's crazy front man charisma. Stream it and steam it here courtesy of TTT Records.

NY garage rock rulers, Parquet Courts, have released a second single off the upcoming 'Sunbathing Animal' LP, and it’s a cruiser. Different from their previous frantic-paced jams, “Instant Disassembly” is a slacker ballad complete with a lazy vocal and a slow, splintered, guitar lead. So sit down and zone out for a while, because this one stretches out at 7 minutes.
On the heels of the Catalina Island Classic, our old friend, and Grind TV’s colorful character Chris Cote reached out to us about the current state of downhill. He wanted to get caught up with the scene, so we sat him down with Louis Pilloni. Chris asked, Louis answered; get a load of these two.
