Pyramid Country to Debut Skate/Art Video The Phoenix Lights in Tempe

On many a night since late September, while the rest of us have been snoozing and snoring away, painter J.J. Horner and the other local artists and skaters behind Pyramid Country have been hitting the streets of the Valley with their boards and cameras in hand.

The result is The Phoenix Lights, a 16-minute-long video that serves as the latest project by the skating crew/art collective and clothing brand. It debuts tonight at the Hacienda Trading Company in Tempe and chronicles approximately four months of skateboarding feats throughout the Valley, all of which were shot at night.
