NEW VIDEO : SUMMER JAM 2014

Saturday, August 9th, 2014

Here’s the new video promo from the first all day Summer Jam we threw back on the 12th of July with our friends from Bakery, City Surf and Spit & Sawdust skate park.

As a rule we tend to stay away from mixing political concerns with music too much. But we were recently invited by our new friends at Bakery to help them throw a fundraiser for a pretty unique kind of charity. www.skatepal.co.uk.

And it a hard one to say no to. Offering kids, living in what is undeniably a war zone, a positive outlet and welcome distraction from the hardships of daily life there. And escape is all what we all need is it not? Those moments of simple fun and pleasure that make life worth living. So we said HELL YES. And the result was a great day from start to finish. So big love to all who came down to have a good time.

We’ve had it on a promise that the actual skate edit from the day shot by the Bakery boys will be out pretty shortly too. So all the skate heads should keep an eye for that one. We’ll probably have it up on here so check back.

NEW PHOTOS : THE SUMMER JAM

Monday, July 21st, 2014

You can scroll through on the photos above to checkout some of the shots from the Skate For Palestine: ‘Summer Jam’ we threw last weekend with some good friends.

The day was a winner and really good for the charity Skatepal as we all helped them raise a little bit more than they had originally hoped for. So a huge thanks to everyone who was involved and everyone who came down to support and skate the day away.

Summer Jam

It was great day to see everyone come out bubbling. All the artists, DJ’s, skaters, music heads, some personal friends, spectators and some young families all helped keep the place busy from the jump off all the way through to the food running out and getting kicked out. We hope everyone enjoyed it as much as us but if you missed your opportunity or just want to contribute still, you can alway just pop along to http://skatepal.co.uk and do your thing. And always remember… AssociatedMinds is for the Children. :)

You can see all the full set from the day along with all our other photos on our Flickr site, or on the AssociatedMinds Facebook page.
