Review: Kensington Market’s Pedestrian Sunday – June 26th 2011

This is a REVIEW of SouthPawBrown’s Monthly Event at Longboard Living for the Summer of 2011.

The 2nd installment of Kensington Market’s Pedestrian Sunday went off with a bang!

Collaborations with local artists and businesses play a strong role in community development. I honestly can’t think of any other neighbourhood in the entire city that does it so well. By combining the sport/hobby with the culture that surrounds it, Longboard Living continues to bring forth the best local artists in each respected field. Ryan Rubin, along with his team at both 202 Augusta Ave. & 86.5 Nassau St. are always incorporating original art with their craft. Chris Burns’ custom wood burning at Champstiles and Jimmy Chiale‘s pieces are just to name a few.

These aforementioned points are precisely why I love being a part of LL. From last months jammin’ with local Kensington MC’s Ian, Blocka, and Khemist to spinnin’ a reggae set with MBALO from Paris… the feeling is all mutual.

It’s all for the love!

By working together, this past Sunday was an even greater success!

We had plenty of MC’s roll through as well as a guest mix from DJ Combo + The Cypher crew that came out hard bringing forth that non-stop energy.
