I always feel very lucky when I get to mix poetry and skateboarding but when I also get to support one of the UK's most legendary skate companies who are extremely active in the community then I can't say no! Next week I'll be hosting and performing at Clown Skateboards 'Happening #2", so bring your ears, beers and your board, it's going to be a great night in Peckham.
Press release below;
"After Happening#1 and the release of Thank You Very Much Ladybird by Tygar Miles Smith, we are stoked to announce the next friend we are working with: Jake Martinelli.
A Grom from our early years, now a genuine mate to Clown, Jake will bring his love of Tattooing and Lino printing to the space with an installation on the mezzanine. Not leaving it there he will be on the drums at Happening #2 with Kicking Pigeons.
You can find out more about Jake here with an interview by Jono.
This Happening will also have one of our biggest loves, Poetry. We are pleased to say Mat Lloyd and Judd Otene have agreed to take the floor for that section.
Once again, no ticket, no guest list, no VIP's - open door policy for nice people."
