SAVE THE DATE: Adidas Skateboarding Hosts Das Days and Showcase X at Seventh Letter with Art Show Curated by Shepard Fairey – Thursday April 12th
Adidas Skateboarding launched Das Days and is hosting it along with Showcase X. Das Days is a multi-city event series taking over several cities across the globe – with their first stop being Los Angeles! The kick-off here encompasses 10 days filled with interactive events and immersive activities such as product launches, video premieres, workshops, art exhibitions, panel discussions, and more. The Seventh Letter Gallery will serve as the Das Days “Community Center” – the main hub where the events and activities will be centered.
A block party with musical performances by Chief Keef and some of the city’s best-emerging talent, Showcase X art exhibition curated by renowned street artist Shepard Fairey, and City Copa skate events curated by local LA shops Kingswell and Brooklyn Projects will also take place in surrounding neighborhoods. Two of the highlights include a block party on Saturday, April 7th centered at Union Nightclub. The event will feature an outdoor, open floor skate jam with cash prizes during the day, followed by an evening of musical performances. But what we are most excited about is the SHOWCASE X Group Art Exhibit CURATED BY SHEPARD FAIREY on April 12th.
