Earlier this month Oakley opened “Oakley In Residence: Sydney,” a creative space and pop-up skate destination that celebrates the culture of skateboarding as part of the brand’s global ONE OBSESSION campaign. This week, Oakley is excited to announce ‘Film score Live’ featuring HWLS, the Future Classic signed, collaborative project of Ta-ku and Kit Pop.
‘Film Score Live’ will provide an interactive element to a traditional film screening as HWLS re-score an iconic skate film live. Taking place on Friday 20th November at the Oakley In Residence space, skate and music worlds will collide yet again to create this unique event that’s not to be missed.
Performing under the duo’s moniker, Kit Pop, renowned for his skills as a multifaceted producer, will be serving up layers of aural imagery to compliment the iconic GIRL Skateboards film, Yeah Right! Electronic aficionados and skaters alike will understand why HWLS is the perfect act for this project.
Hosted in one of the world’s most progressive skate communities Oakley In Residence: Sydney is free and open to the public. Located at 74 Commonwealth Street, Surry Hills, the venue is open every day from Tuesday to Sunday until 29th November. As part of the screening, guests will also be treated to food by Nighthawk Diner and beverages from Budweiser, Bulleit Bourbon and Schweppes.
