www.uptownmag.com Riding DIY diversions 1 skateboarding doc could be his most successful project yet Stacy Peralta's latest www.alloneword.ca Anthony Augustine bonesbrigade.com—After a successful debut at the Sundance Film Festival, director Stacy Peralta (Dogtown and Z-Boys, Riding Giants) and his influential skateboard team, the Bones Brigade, decided to bypass the traditional movie-distribution system and embrace skateboarding's DIY approach, handling every aspect of his latest film. Peralta and his seminal crew of skaters — which includes legends such as Tony Hawk, Steve Caballero, Rodney Mullen and Lance Mountain—have launched an aggressive social-media cam- paign to promote the documentary, offering up treasures from skateboarding's past and memorabilia from their personal collec- tions for sale, along with giving away their 1987 film, The Search for Animal Chin, as a way to draw in old fans and engage new ones. It all seems to be coming together for Peralta and his hand-picked team from the '80s, as the buzz around the film project has spread across the web like wildfire. This could be the documentary film- maker's most successful project yet.

Top 100 Dunks of 2011-2012 bit.ly/254_creeping — Currently on tour in the U.S. with The xx, sisters Hannah and Colette Thurlow have been getting a lot of attention since the release of their self titled debut, 2:54, on Fat Possum this past May.Molded from a slurry of dark, shoegazer gui- tars, simple bass melodies and confident drums, Creeping's moody, claustrophobic vibe is a nice lead-in to their cover version of Seal and Adamski's classic, Killer, which was recently uploaded to their Soundcloud page. Hopefully they'll officially release the track. MP3 of the Week: 2:54 – Creeping ture writer. He can be heard every Tuesday morning at 8:55 a.m. on Hot 103 chatting about the web.

Pull- ing together clanging drums, souped-up synths, an unrelenting pace and a blow-the-roof-off vibe that would even make Diplo blush, Die Antwoord has to be one of the most outrageous groups around right now. Its bombastic beats and modern-meets-trashy dazzle will be front and centre on the upcoming eight-city Sonar tour that hits Toronto and Montreal next month.
