Wall of Records


We are creating a wall of records as our backdrop for our Bank Sale Booth #D13.  There was no method to this madness i just pulled random records out of the crates.  Lord knows i could of taken days to decided who made it on the wall.  If your in LA, roll down to The Bank Sale and stop by our booth (D13).  If you can name all the records in a time limit, you will a free shirt. Stay Tuned & Don’t Sleep.

The Bank Sale 6


We did Comic Con & Designer Con, well its about time we do a large scale event focused on new and established brands. Enter The Bank Sale at the Anaheim Convention Center, February 28th-2015.  With over 40 brands in attendance we hope to represent to the fullest.  We know we are different by design, so we hope the right people and companies feel what we vibin’, that Tribe Vibe.  Don’t Sleep, we got more info coming on the event.  Bank on it.


So much love was given and received this past Friday at our 3rd Annual Dilla Day @ Truest.  To answer a quick question that comes up, “why Truest?”.  Easy answer, before McCully was the hot block, there was just Truest.  The owner a long time friend of mine was just about to open his shop when i approached him about doing this event, b4 his grand opening, as a pre-opening buffer.  Need less to say its been a perfect fit and i wouldn’t have it any other way.
