London to Paris • Dallas Premiere




Snagged this
from Decade Clothing:

"The homie Daniel brings it again! This dude has his finger on the pulse of all the ill bike flicks. Over the past year he has brought you the following films; Macaframa, Council Of Doom, Fixed City, Revival and now London To Paris. It all goes down next Thursday, 7PM at Transit Bikes. There will be a keg & BBQ in the spot. If you are a beer snob and want to bring that special micro brew concoction, it’s BYOB. When the video is over and the keg is tapped, roll over to The Cavern for Top Notch. We will be in the building ’til 2am."
