Tonight, Vans lands in Boston with LA-based indie label IAMSOUND to put on a show honoring the Classics collection at the Paradise Rock Club as part of a US tour hitting Austin and San Francisco as well. We hear that the RSVP list still has some room, and if headliner The Walkmen doesn't pull you in, then maybe a customized Vans gear giveaway will? Artist Brian Butler, a MA native, has left his mark on some Classics, tees, and socks, and to enter, show goers can Instagram a photo from the event with the hashtag #OffTheWall. Every 30 to 40 minutes a winner will be selected to win a one-of-a-kind hand-customized item. Doors to the free, all ages show open at 8pm; RSVP here.
