This weekend BAM opened up the AfroPunk Festival with an outdoor concert and a skatepark in the parking lot.
From the BAM site:

Say it loud! The Afro-Punk Festival is back at BAM for the fourth year running. We’re delivering six days of films about black rebellion and change, as well as a celebration filled with music, a skate park, a special DIY marketplace, and much more. Spend your fourth of July by celebrating a real revolution.

Punk isn’t really my thing, but Black folks doing the unexpected appeals to me. I stopped in for a little while, until the music got to be too much for me.
It was cool seeing all these kids trying out tricks on the ramps, maybe one of these days I’ll catch one of them at the X Games.
