House of Vans at SXSW: Title Fight

Fans of punk band Title Fight packed the room for their main stage performance at SXSW and it got pretty crazy (in the best kind of way). While the band is known for their hardcore past, their new album Hyperview takes a new turn. It was pretty cool to see old fans as well as new ones rocking out to their set in Austin.

Macbriare Samuel Lanyon Demarco aka Mac Demarco played House of Vans for us on Thursday night and we had to catch him after his soundcheck for a quick Q&A… So what do his 5 favorite spots in NYC have in common? They’re all pinball spots. He also picked lasagna on the basis that there are a lot of varieties, and although he’s been wearing red Vans for three years he gets a new pair every few months.

Artist Dennis McNett was in Boston with us over the last few days to help us put some seriously rad art on the walls in our pop-up House of Vans space. Although getting there was pretty tough (thanks snow storm) he was a totally good sport about letting me pepper him with questions while he worked. Look out for more Q&A and photos over the next few days!

We love checking out the line right before doors at House of Vans in Brooklyn, NY for a solid dose of street style inspiration. The vibe was solid and everyone was excited just before 7PM last night as doors opened at our first show of the season in our new Almost Summer series. Peep photos from a live set by Bleached over on our music blog.
