Rockbox Dance Party
1001 SE Morrison
For the past 5 years every Halloween weekend, Pathfinder of West Virginia has been shutting down the main drag at WVU, trucking in tons of snow, booking awesome talent and throwing the best party of the year. Major props to the man with the master plan, Andrew Walker, the whole staff at Pathfinder, the terrain park at 7 Springs and Red Bull for making the magic happen. Thanks to Acrylick for the fly gear.
This year I got to rock with the legendary Phife Dawg from A Tribe Called Quest. It was pretty surreal to be standing on stage watching him perform “Scenario”. His DJ, Rasta Root, was also great to meet and it was cool to watch him work. Be sure to check out the photos and video below of the event…

“It should be like this high, bro…”
The team from Pathfinder and 7 Springs are amazing. They trucked in 20,000 lbs. of snow, constructed all the ramps and then broke everything back down all in the same day.

Check out the recap post from my Motown Throwdown gig in October with Phife Dawg from A Tribe Called Quest and DJ Rasta Root. Awesome photos and a video!
It’s been a busy month as usual since my last email. I’ve been in Portland, DC, Pittsburgh, Philly and North Carolina. Be sure to check out the recap posts below for all the details. On to the next one…
I’m super excited for a major gig this coming weekend. It’s time for the 5th annual Motown Throwdown in Morgantown, WV. It’s a giant party at WVU every year where they block off the main street in town, High Street, truck in tons of snow, hold a snowboard competition and have DJs rock it. This year I’ll be performing with the legendary Phife Dawg from A Tribe Called Quest. The party is put on every year by the homie Andrew at Pathfinder. If you’re at WVU, you’d better be there. If you’re not, I suggest making the drive.

Greetings from the West Coast. In case you didn’t hear, I recently relocated to beautiful Portland, Oregon. I was slacking a bit on the updates and emails because of the move so there’s a ton of info in this one. I’ll be hitting a bunch of gigs on the East Coast throughout October so I hope to see everyone at some point.
