Hurley Entertainment is hosting a day-long music/fashion/sports event Wed. June 18 at its Costa Mesa headquarters (1945 Placentia Ave.). Action starts at 2 p.m., with bands playing at 4 p.m.
Vans Warped Tour 2008 acts Beat Union (Clash/Jam/Joe Jackson-style new wave/punk from Birmingham, England), Broadway Calls (peppy pop-punk from Oregon) and DJ Geometric will be performing while the Hurley Skate and the Soil BMX teams will be demonstrating their skills. Also, Hurley and Science Records will be displaying and giving away some of their clothing and musical goods, respectively. In addition, you can tour Hurley's new state of the art recording studio and take in the “Show of Hands” art display and “Collaboration Clothing,” a joint effort between musicians and visual artists. Wahoo's Fish Tacos will provide free food and drinks.
Donations will be accepted to benefit Jay Adams, an original Z-Boy who's considered one of the most original and influential skateboarders ever. According to a press release, “Jay Adams is being released from jail and is coming to work at Hurley to manage the Skatepark. Hurley is looking to assist him with a job, our moral support and financially as well, in an effort to let him hit the ground running with no worries except getting on the right track and supporting his family.”
