Live Concert Photography: Dave Chappelle’s Party at House of Vans 8/10/17
With permanent locations in Brooklyn, Chicago and London, as well as pop-up locations throughout the world, House of Vans is a multipurpose venue where imagination and creativity are inspired through skateboarding through concrete bowls and on iron railings, through unique art installations and live concerts. This summer, the Greenpoint, Brooklyn location along with FYF hosted a handful of House Party shows featuring Grammy Award-winning hip hop act Digable Planets, up-and-coming Chicago-based emcee Joey Purp, Bay Area-based up-and-comers Downtown Boys, Sheer Mag, Royal Headache, Rise Against, Beach Fossils, The Drums, Descendents and others.
Recently, the Greenpoint location hosted a special event — famed comic Dave Chappelle celebrating his 30th anniversary as a standup comic and his August residency at Radio City Music Hall, featuring his standup and a who’s who of special guests with DJ Trauma, DJ D Nice and Stretch Armstrong (who for this set is sadly not pictured), as well as a live graffiti artists and a guest appearance by Talib Kweli.
