Falling up and getting down: A live skateboarding and music celebration

Facebook
You’ve got to hand it to the University Musical Society: They’ve come up with one of the most interesting season openers in memory. They’re joining forces with Friends of the Ann Arbor Skatepark to present live performance that mixes improvisational music and professional skateboarding. It’s called “Falling up and getting down: A live skateboarding and music celebration.” The Kennedy Center’s artistic director of jazz, Jason Moran, and his band, the Bandwagon, will perform an inspired blend of jazz, R&B, and hip-hop, while such nationally and internationally celebrated professional skateboarders as Andy Macdonald, Ron Allen, Chuck Treece, Tom Remillard, Jordyn Barratt, and Natalie Krishna Das will skateboard to the music on the fly. But that performance is just part of the fun, which will also include skateboarding exhibitions, open skate, DJ sets by Tadd Mullinix and Alvin Hill, food trucks, vendors, raffles, a skateboard art museum and more. Runs from 2:30-5 p.m.; 350 N. Maple Rd., Ann Arbor; advanced registration requested at ums.org/skatepark, no admission charge; more info at ums.org/season.
