Kings of Concrete. July 3rd & 4th, Wood Quay, Dublin 2.
I’ll admit it, I had a bit of a thing for skateboarders when I was about 14; in fact, I was always crushing on the boys who did it. Funnily enough, I was speaking to an old school friend recently who kindly reminded me of the enormous (and darn obvious) crush I had on a boy in the 6th year. He had all but the front of his head shaved where there was a long fringe and a skateboard perma-glued to his feet. *sigh*. By the time I got to 6th year, skateboards had been replaced by cars and going to bars and grown-up stuff like that. So crushing on skateboarders became a just cute little memory. I’ve never stopped being hugely impressed by it though, if there is anything that can make me secretly wish I could gender-swap for a day, it’s a good ollie.
Just in case you are at a loss as to what I’m on about:
Shades, River Island
T Shirt, Topman
Harmonica Necklace, Zara Taylor
Chuck Taylors, Office
