This past Wednesday, June 11th, the bloodsucking skateboard company Toy Machine and Volcom came together to throw a party to launch our mind blowing collab with mutual rider Collin Provost! Among industry folk, team riders and the other 4,000 plus party goers in attendance we had the bands Fart Barf, Spindrift and Early Man providing us with some heavy jams. Pizzanista, The Viking Food Truck and Clara Cakes also came out to keep us fed and Red Room's Blake kept our thirst quenched with the free beer! Toy Machine's overlord Ed Templeton was also in attendance and had plenty of epic photos on display for party goers. Check out photos from the night below and a HUGE thanks to all that came out and help put the party together!

Even tried to get Deanna in the mix
The mosh pit was going all night
Fart Barf was the first band to go on and they got the party started right! Everyone on the floor was digging the tunes and getting down to the music.
Spindrift was the next band to go on, changing the pace and keeping the party going!
The last band to go on was Early Man and they absolutely KILLED IT! With heavy riffs and playing loud as hell they shut down the party.
CJ Collins got this kicklflip over the stone door in before the bands started. Click the link to see another recap from Joe Hammeke over at the Thrasher site!
Transworld also has a little recap up too, check it out HERE!
