About S.L.A.T.E. :
The S.L.A.T.E. Pop-Up Shop @ AK1511 is a unique retail concept launching December 20, 2009 at the AK1511 event space in Venice, CA.

In addition to standard retail, featured brands are able to host their own in-store events and sample sales, display exhibits, and bring in live musical performances and DJ showcases.
