Musicians, artists and hundreds of local skateboarders come together Saturday for the second annual Skatestock to honor the late Morgan Moss, a Houston artist, photographer and active member of the local skateboard community. Besides an impressive lineup of local punk, rock, metal and DJs — Something Fierce, Hell City Kings, Tax the Wolf, Herschel Berry & the Natives, Rivers, DJ Brother Roo, Ceeplus Bad Knives and more — Rice University professor Adrian Lenardic will be conducting experiments on weightlessness and velocity (!), Brooklyn's Drive By Press will hold a printmaking demonstration, and photographer Lee Leal will bring some of his work from the pages of Thrasher and Juice magazines. All donations go the Morgan Moss Foundation, and the afterparty at Fitzgerald's featuring legendary desert rockers the Meat Puppets is free for ages 21 and up.
