Alan Scott and Josh “Bagel” Klassman, reunite this summer to bring DTLA a taste of classic VBWL culture. Surf Skate Roots Rock is a family reunion of some of the biggest names in West side surf/skate history.
This “art and music extravaganza”, hosted by the 91 Club’s Dan Spillane at The Vortex DTLA, will teleport attendees to an old school rock ’n roll party, while showcasing original art from Dogtown/Z-Boy heavyweights.
Alan Scott is an ex pro-skater and has a reputation for throwing Westside art and music parties since the eighties. His last major event was the official opening party for the feature film Lords of Dogtown, a legendary film about the roots of surf/skate culture and the Westside that still has a resounding influence in fashion, art and music to this day.
Josh “Bagel” Klassman is a Venice Breakwater surfing veteran and a legendary photographer who has documented this cultural movement organically since the beginning.
Together, these two are cultivating an event that will bring Westside icons under one roof. From skateboarding G.O.A.T., Tony Alva, to the world champion surfer Corky Carroll, this culture-rich gathering will host a range of Westside royalty.
Surf Skate Roots Rock will be overflowing with the art, photography, and music from Hall of Fame surf and skate legends.
Angelo Moore of Fishbone will be a special guest and host/emcee of the event.
