"...I looked up Mike Aho's Web site at the L.A. skate shop Volcom and cracked up..."
"...Three years later, the incident is immortalized as "The Gamblers Try Their Hand at International Diplomacy" on the quintet's new Volcom LP, To the Confusion of Our Enemies. For reasons that have nothing to do with increasingly unpopular presidents or an enraged Frenchman who was, Wiebe notes, eventually "pushed out" of the Gamblers' room they're proud of their heritage...."
"...Heading into the Festival, the boyish UK act hadn't blipped my radar, but they were repeatedly recommended to me as the week went on by those who had witnessed their intense appearances. When I finally saw them Thursday at Volcom Garden, I was floored by the quintet's sound – a post-punk/indie rock mixture recalling Echo & the Bunnymen, Cable, and the Fall – and their live-wire vocalist Charlie Steen, a once-in-a-decade frontman, who erupted out of his coveralls and implored the audience, "It's okay to smile..."
"...Riverboat GamblersThe Wolf You Feed (Volcom)..."
"...They began with careful pencil lines, then gradually added black ink, text bubbles, more graphite backgrounds, and finally red pen. They slowly built up these drawings, which found their way into the hands of Mike Aho, which led to Volcom Stone publishing a 40-page, two-color art book of the project..."
"...11pm, Bigsby's Formerly Single Frame Ashtray, this Austin band dropped the habit in time for a deal with surf/skate clothing company/record label Volcom Entertainment and a ride on this summer's Warped Tour. Volcom will be re-releasing the band's 2002 debut, Wetheads Come Running, a well-received effort that ranges from New Wave Fugazi to the Modest Mouse-isms of "comm.jet," finding a Rapture-ous middle ground..."
"...Local post-punk trio Single Frame are still scratching their heads wondering how their 2002 LP Wetheads Come Running got picked up for re-release by Volcom Records, the California label whose best-known act is skate-thrashers CKY. The deal also resulted in Single Frame's being added to 13 dates of this summer's Warped Tour, which confounds bassist/singer Brendan Reilly even further..."
"...Roseanne Almost as memorable as her famous cackle, Roseanne's diner served (unfortunately named) loose meat sandwiches, pies, and Canoga root beer. Thanks to SXSW, the Lanford Lunch Box will be brought to life at Volcom Garden (1209 E..."
"...After relinquishing its long-held home at Pine Street Station following the conference in 2016 and then spending last year at the Volcom Garden on East Sixth, the Fort moved a few more blocks to 1501 E. Seventh – into the former space of erstwhile French restaurant LaV..."
"...Fader Fort lost its long-held turf at the soon-to-be-redeveloped Plaza Saltillo and, according to city permits, will share space with Volcom at the comparably tiny Clayworks Studio/Gallery on East Sixth (a formal announcement arrives this afternoon). Hype Hotel is taking a year off to focus on developing web and mobile products..."
"...Residual Kid released a two-song EP recorded at the headquarters of Volcom, appropriate for a band rarely sighted without skateboards. The bundle, released by Warner Bros..."
"..."Before, it was a ramp that the skater bros built so they could shred while listening to Bad Religion," assesses Moody. "Volcom took it next level." FFF10 – 2015..."
"...A skater launches off a tabletop of Volcom’s “Supercollider.” Iron Reagan frontman Tony Foresta noted that the balloon in the background looks like a giant, inflatable butt-plug...."
"...One such revision: All of the stages are facing the same direction to reduce noise-bleed. Another is that the skate park, now a partnership with Volcom, has evolved into a massive, centrally located, shred-o-plex that's increasingly interactive with live music..."
"...The Sharks' deal with The End guarantees two albums and national distribution. The band had recently turned down a similar offer from Volcom Entertainment, which represents local punk export the Riverboat Gamblers, in favor of maintaining ownership of their masters, not surprising considering drummer Cornetti owns his own label, Pau Wau Records..."
"...Garrison and Kevin have been inseparable since they were 13. Garrison's more popular with the girls, but Kevin's a better skater; in one of the documentary's meandering subplots, we see them take a chaperoned road trip to Arizona, where Kevin has been invited to skate in a Volcom competition..."
"...Austin musician and filmmaker Mike Aho provides that feedback for "The Lonely Life," his first narrative short, which was funded via Kickstarter and filmed in Austin and Bastrop. Aho, who fronts the Austin band ((Sounder)) and composed the film's score for an upcoming album, The Howlingest Call, has directed music videos for Jennifer Herrema's band RTX and skateboard company Volcom..."

"...Mountain man fiver Valient Thorr (2:30pm), led by "Valient Himself," spent its last decade in Chapel Hill, N.C., looking for members with the surname Thorr. Fifth LP Stranger, Thorr's fourth for Volcom, came knocking in September with ZZ Topisms..."
