Payday Brings Back The Good Old Days With A Skate Park Party
“It would be crazy if Tony Hawk showed up,” Payday says to FOSC with a chuckle. “Like, could you imagine?” Mr. Hawk never showed, but Payday’s meet n greet at the Culver City Skate Park had no shortage of fresh faces. Pro skaters CJ Collins, Ish Cepeda, and Chris Pierre showed up for the festivities, with Cepeda jumping on the mic to MC the skate sesh and introduce Payday before her electric performance.
Childhood Payday would have been awestruck to see all of the attendees at her event, just around to skate, chill, and support her music. Well, Payday’s not far removed from those childhood years—she’s still a teenager—but felt like she was reconnecting to that same energy. “A skate park is the best place to do something like this because everyone is here to have fun. It’s nostalgic for everybody, it feels so nice,” she explains.
Payday’s ability to blend genres into something unique and fresh resembles the unpredictable experience that is the skate park. You never know who you’ll run into, what sort of clothes they wear, what styles they’re into. That’s Payday’s favorite part about skate parks, and, as such, her First on SoundCloud meet n greet. Fans and new friends were able to win custom Payday skate decks and were given the opportunity to outfit them with griptape, trucks, and wheels. “There’s just no place like the skate park,” Payday says. And on Saturday, October 16, Payday was able to call the skate park her own, and everyone in that one-of-a-kind crowd was there for her.
