Last night in our skatepark and photo studio, we hosted Skin Phillips’ 50/50 show. The show celebrated Skin’s 50th birthday and had on display 50 of Skin’s most epic photos from 20 years of shooting skateboarding—25 color prints, and 25 black and white. Wines from Coppola Winery and suds from St. Archer were flowing and after a while, it was time for some musical accompaniment. Indian Wig took the stage first, consisting of Lance Mountain on drums, Neil Blender on bass, and Hagop Najarian on lead. After that, Skin Phillips took the drums to back up Pat Duffy and Rob Welsh of Pat Man & Robin. Classic covers were played and a birthday cake came out to surprise the birthday boy. Happy Birthday Skin! The photos are incredible and will be made into a portfolio and available for purchase soon!
