DQM and Vans celebrated the opening of The Vans DQM General in Boston, MA last Friday night at the newly opened location at 174 Newbury Street. Locals, family and friends celebrated with us while listening to professional skateboarder and musician, Ray Barbee, play a very special set. The Vans DQM General Boston is officially open! The store carries Vans’ most premiere selection of footwear in the city along with a fully set up skate shop, and of course the entire DQM apparel and accessories collection. Thanks to our family at Vans and everyone who came out!
If you are looking for a good time this weekend, stop by the Afro Punk Fest at Brooklyn’s Commodore Barry Park. Hosted by our friends Alex and Billy, this event involves several great musical performances along with NYC’s largest street skate competition, Battle For The Streets, brought to you by Nike. Head over to afropunkfest.com for full info of all events and check the flyer for the skate event details.
Q.) Name the world’s longest running, continuously produced signature skateboard shoe. (Hint: 2012 marks this shoe’s 20th anniversary.)
Rob Harris, DQM employee, and the man behind The Green Diamond, took a little time to catalog the jams that he’s got ripping on a daily basis and cue them up for your listening pleasure. These soothing sounds will have you tapping your toes, snapping your fingers, and sailing straight into the weekend. Enjoy!
