Wavves Snaps Wrist Skateboarding

I just read on Pitchfork that Wavves broke his wrist skateboarding this Sunday. Thankfully it’s not too bad a fracture he can’t keep his summer obligations, which include a show this week at the Bowery Ballroom in New York.

wavvesThis is all of interest to me because I’ve really dug the Wavves shows I’ve caught this year, in addition to his almost-self-titled album Wavvves. I was feeling for dude when Wavves got in some shit in Barcelona a couple months back when its creator Nathan Williams–who’s skateboards and thankfully doesn’t pose topless in all his press photos–got wasted on pills and booze and pitted the audience against him until his tour-drummer Ryan announced the end of the yet-to-begin set by pouring beer on Nathan’s head and marching off. I interviewed Nathan about it for Thrasher‘s Zounds section, and it should be out in a month or so.
