Showcase X, part of adidas Skateboarding’s Das Days NYC, curated by adidas’ own Mark Gonzales, took place at Milk Studios in Chelsea with a special surprise for guests. Gonz recreated his museum performance that he did in Germany 20 years ago. He skated to that Coconut Records song as well as another for a two-song performance. There were two performances throughout the night, the fencing suit was black this time, and it a surreal, magical night. Scroll down to see who was there.
