Tales From The Black Van & The Japanese Motors
Checked out the new surf flick, Tales From The Black Van at Mollusk Venice last Saturday night. It was good to see some fresh logging footage, and the flick's lo-fi B&W vibe was a nice break from the recent batch of "shot in Super 16mm"glossy film looks. As always the Mollusk surf shop contingent and the shop itself set a great vibe and ambience, Brett is running a fine establishment. After the screening the crowd was treated to a set by The Japanese Motors led by Alex Knost who was just as engaging to watch sliding down faces as he was fronting his band, here are some video grabs.
