PRLog - Nov. 9, 2012 - TEMPE, Ariz. -- Uncle Skate has put together one heck of a night of Skate Rock featuring Skate Rock pioneers The Drunk Injuns! Backing up the Injuns will be Killing California from (where else?) California along with a host of some of the finest local talent in the AZ music scene today. Gomi, Dirty Hairy, Asses of Evil, The Mongoloids and AZPX Records recording artists Dephinger and Unemployment Party will all be rocking their asses off. Also, professional skateboarders Christian Hosoi, Micke Alba, Neal Mims and Trey Wood will all be hanging out with everyone while our own Randy Colvin will be holding down the MC duties. So come on out, tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door the day of show. We will be having raffles and other activities.

About The Drunk Injuns

The Drunk Injuns are a skate punk band formed in 1983. The band members wear masks that resemble Indian ghost warriors. They claim to believe the masks allow them to channel the spirit world to gain control of their bodies and play better music.

About Christian Hosoi

Christian Hosoi emerged as one of the top competitors of vertical riding alongside such pros as Steve Caballero, Mike McGill, Lester Kasai, and Mark "Gator" Rogowski with an eventual rivalry developing with Tony Hawk with contrasting styles in both skateboarding and lifestyles—Hosoi, known for his flair and graceful style, and Hawk raising the bar with his technical ability and difficult tricks. Hosoi invented the Christ Air and Rocket Air, and was renowned for pulling huge aerials; at one point he was the world record holder. Vertical skateboarding grew in spectator popularity with prize money to match. This, combined with major endorsements with Converse, Swatch, and Jimmy'Z, as well as receiving a pro model wheel, the OJ II Hosoi Rocket through Santa Cruz Speed Wheels, earning Hosoi more money than he had ever dreamed of. In 1984 he formed his own company, Hosoi Skates, first distributed through Skull Skates, then through NHS-INC. The board proved to be so popular that it was counterfeited. When street skating began to emerge in the mid-to-late 80s, Hosoi proved a threat as well, winning both the vert and street contests at the Lotte Cup contest in Japan in 1988.

By collecting and donating skateboards away, Uncle Skate has created pillars that this non-profit follows:

• Allow children in impoverished countries to enjoy the creative sport of skateboarding.
• Build self esteem and character through self confidence.
• Create leaders for tomorrow and help kids stay away from drugs and alcohol.

Uncle Skate has created its own philosophy and vision of what it would like to see in the future.
A study shows that kids who participate in any type of sport are less likely to consume alcohol, get addicted to drugs, and even less likely to commit a criminal act. That being said, the more skateboards given out the better chance we have with the future of our global society.
