We made this tee in the nascent days of QS merch, commemorating the 2003 blackout, which happened exactly 20 years ago, today. That August 14th, everyone was packed inside Tompkins for one of those classic T.F. sessions where it felt like everyone who mattered was within that fence. It took us about an hour or so to realize the power had gone out. Only two years removed from 9/11, everybody’s mind raced to the worst hypothetical conclusions imaginable. To ease everyone’s anxiety, Billy Rohan reminded us that “Tompkins is actually the safest place in the world right now.” He was right.
Devin Sweat has a name tailor-made for R&B stardom. But instead of singing loverman ballads and waiting for a Drake feature, he has a really sick new part for Labor filmed entirely in New York. Love the elusive City College benches clip.
The brains at Always Do What You Should Do collaborated with Noah on some gear, and released a New York trip edit / Three Up Three Down pilgrimage to celebrate the capsule.
