Issue 249 - September 2009

Antipop Consortium: Continuum

Saying that Antipop Consortium is like any other hip hop group is not only a grossly uninformed generalization, it’s objectively wrong. Each member brings a different background and paradigm of influences to the collective making possible their signature blend of unorthodox lyrics and experimental production.

Hepcat: Right on Time

During the 90s, there was no other ska band in the world like Hepcat. While other bands from the era built upon the punk-influenced ska of 1970s England, Hepcat created a potent mixture of 1960s Jamaican ska, jazz, latin music and American soul for a smooth, cool sound all their own.

SLUG @ Comic Con

Thirty-nine years ago, the greatest gathering of sci-fi nerdary and fantastical dreams known as Comic Con International: San Diego only attracted 145 comic book enthusiasts. Fast-forward to present day, and the once humble congregation has exploded into the largest convention of its kind with over 125,000 attendees

SOD: Road Warriors

I pulled under 600 North, astonished by the number of people that had gathered for the fourth year of SLUG’s street-style skate contest. It was half an hour before Summer of Death: Road Warriors started and more the 50 people were already on the scene shredding and sipping some undercover, frosty, adult beverages.

Devin York: A Cinderella Story

Devin York is a bit of an anomaly. He was a child prodigy who could salad grind handrails at the age of 13. He grinded a double-kink that most pros wouldn’t touch during his sophomore year of high school. Yet in this day and age of Shecklers and Hustons, York never quite received the “extreme” sponsorship he deserved.

Geek 2.0

Roger Altizer has a job that’s so cool you probably haven’t even thought to wish for it.  While pursuing his PhD at the U of U, Altizer has proposed and implemented the University’s first gaming classes. That’s right, this enviable fella is actually a professor of video games.
