When The Mothership touched down earlier this year we had one goal: World Domination. That, and taking our art to new people and places. We believe having new experiences is key to growth as both an artist and a person. We've been shown nothing but love and support from our local scene and lately we've been scheming on bringing TMA out of town. Last weekend Crystal Mod, Dice 51, Acr1dApple, and Max Schwaber did just that.
We headed out Friday morning to meetup with some friends with a home studio in Leadville, Colorado a former silver mining town and the highest city in the United States at 10,200 feet above sea level. We took the scenic route, driving all afternoon stopping only to fill up the tank and slap some stickers up.
The sun was setting the last hour before getting into town letting us enjoy the gorgeous river and mountain views before arriving at Tommy's house. Dice had met Tommy at a music festival in Colorado a few years back. Friday night was spent resting from the drive, catching up with old friends, getting acquainted with new ones, and making sure everyone had enough stickers. We met Fish, a guitarist, and Cam, a drummer at Tommy's house.
Coincidentally Cam was also from St. Louis and was one of the original builders of a DIY skatepark located under a bridge where I had befriended a skate crew called the St. Louis Suspects and filmed a skate video at this same before the park was demolished to rebuild the bridge. Small world after all! TMA since it's inception has been a conduit for building relationships with like-minded creative individuals and sharing in experiences and it's times like that really prove we're all meant to be working together towards building something great.
