Weapon show to benefit skate park

South Lake Tahoe rock-reggae group Weapon will headline a show this weekend to help fund the construction of a new skateboard bowl at the Skatehouse Skate Park.

The show takes place Saturday at Classic Cue in South Lake Tahoe and also includes Screaming Meg, Oskillah, Archea, Nick Taylor and Trent Bailey, according to an email from promoter Mike Underwood.

Skatehouse should have the new bowl should be open this week, according to the promoter. The show is to give back to the hard-working crew that donated time and money to complete the skate park project, Underwood said.

Weapon has been together for about two years and consists of Todd Christensen (bass), Billy Blurton (guitar, vocals) and Matt Mandella (drums).

“We were doing like a bluesy rock band, but we just kind of wanted to switch up the pace and find something that everyone enjoyed, young and old,” Christensen told Lake Tahoe Action this summer. “It’s just fun dancing music, but we definitely like to rock out hard at times, just get a nice flavor of everything.”

The Skatehouse is South Lake Tahoe’s only indoor skate park and consisted of interchangeable ramps prior to installation of the bowl, a photo of which shows the new construction filling up much of the interior of the skate park.

The first 40 people through the door at Saturday’s show receive a free Mountain Menace scarf, Underwood said.
