Saturday evening, 8th Wonder Brewery in EaDo hosted a party for one of Houston's most important cultural institutions: the sneaker and apparel boutique Premium Goods (2416 Times Blvd.) was celebrating its 10-year anniversary of existence, and invited a few friends to assist in the festivities. Rocks Off photographer Marco Torres was on hand to capture the highlights.
The party got started as the sun went down on a cool evening in H-Town, with plenty of 8th Wonder beer, Red Bull, and Deep Eddy Vodka flowing and great music on the set list.
HPMA 2014 Best Rap DJ Mr. Rogers did his thing on the turntables to kick off the show. Pimp Squad fo life! Hold it down!
First on the mike was Le$, who repped Jet Life and brought his Steak x Shrimp flow to the stage, along with a few of his homies.
Doeman turned in a vicious lyrical assault...

Even Maxo Kream stopped by to knock a few heads.
MC Reko Trill kept things flowing throughout the night.
If you haven't stopped by 8th Wonder Brewery, do so ASAP. Their brews are phenomenal.
Cheers to Premium Goods!
