Party With Andrew W.K. For FREE This Friday!!!

Skateboarding and punk rock have always gone together like peanut butter and jelly. Last year, Wild in the Streets came to town and filled Detroit with skateboarders from all over the country. The money raised from this event helped build Ride It Park, the free skate park in Detroit. This year, Detroit will celebrate Go Skateboarding Day by having the party man himself, Andrew W.K., perform for free at the Majestic Theater this Friday, June 21.

Go Skateboarding Day was originally formed to celebrate skateboarding by taking a day and devoting it to riding. Local riders would change all the 'no skateboarding' signs to ' go skateboarding' signs by defacing them with markers, paint or whatever they could get their hands on. The International Association of Skate Companies decided to legitimize the event and turn it into a national holiday. It was decided that Go Skateboarding Day would be celebrated every June 21st.
This Friday skip work, skip school or skip out on those plans you had with Mom and go spend your day skateboarding. There is nothing like being outside with friends getting a little exercise and having fun. At 3 p.m., head over to the Brewster Projects in Detroit for a ride- all ages and wheels are invited.

Let's get the party started and celebrate the skateboarding community of Detroit.
