September 16th, 2014 by Tim

MyRules2-BlackFlagjpg

Legendary photographer and artist Glen E. Friedman celebrates the release of a career-spanning compendium of work at his first ever Brooklyn event. Featuring a conversation with Ian Svenonius, special edition vegan burgers made on the premises by Brooks Headley of Del Posto, and a raffle for a special signed Dogtown deck donated by Jim Muir.

The definitive monograph of Glen E. Friedman—the iconic skate, punk, and hip-hop photographer, often called the most important photographer of his generation, known for masterfully capturing and promoting rebellion in the cultures which he helped shape and define with his art.
 
My Rules is the best of his first two highly sought-after books, here bigger and better than ever—featuring never-before seen photographs of Black Flag, Public Enemy, Run-DMC, Minor Threat, Bad Brains, Beastie Boys, Dead Kennedys, and Ice-T, as well as classic skateboarding originators Tony Alva, Jay Adams, Lance Mountain, “Ollie” Gelfand, and Tony Hawk, just to name a few.
 
My Rules also features personal reflections from some of Friedman’s most well-known subjects, giving its readers an unprecedented window into the most significant radical youth countercultures of the last 40 years. 

20 YEAR ANNIVERSARY SHOW
September 9th, 2014 by Tim

20YRS2

FYF and Macondo Present:
This venue is 2 doors down from where the Macondo was in Los Angeles, so we felt that it would be the right venue to host this show.
Unbroken, Strife, and Mean Season have not all shared a bill since the early 90’s, so this should be special.

Strife will be playing a special set to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of One Truth. There will also be an exhibit showing the history of The Macondo, one of the most important DIY venues in the 90’s in Los Angeles.

Tickets are available now www.ticketfly.com

A portion of the proceeds will benefit MusiCares, which helps musicians that struggle with addiction get sober and back on their feet.

SKATEBOARDING WITH JEFF NELSON OF MINOR THREAT

FROM FLIPSIDE FANZINE, ISSUE NUMBER 38, PUBLISHED IN 1983

This was a 1983 video/photo shoot of the guys from Minor Threat skating at a Los Angeles elementary school. Glen E. Friedman was also in attendance snapping photos of Rodney Mullen. If you saw an earlier version of one of the Flipside Video Fanzines, video from this skate session were interspersed with live footage of the band from a gig at the Rollerworks.

Flipside Video Fanzines where a bit of a moving target. Once a 3/4 inch recording master tape was made, it would eventually get “eaten” while dubbing VHS tapes. We would then have to re-edit the entire master tape from scratch from the original VHS tapes. As such, editing points on Flipside Video Fanzines would vary over time. Later editions of the Video Fanzines reduced or eliminated the shots from the skate session. -Joseph Henderson (Flipside)
