From Stark Headquarters, in Irvine, California, in the heart of Orange County, brings you Episode 20 of The C-Life: More Than Apparel, It's a Lifestyle: CEO of Dirtbag Clothing, John Alves. In this episode, Tyler Mounce and Todd Vande Hei sit down with John Alves and find out how he went from being passionate about film to passionate about clothing. Being a "Dirtbag" is a compliment; a Dirtbag is someone who is passionate about what they do, whether it be business, or in this case, rock and roll. Find out how John grew the business to what it is today, and what it means to be a Dirtbag!
Dirtbag's founder and CEO, John Alves recently had a long chat with Joshua Toomey (former bassist of Primer55, industry veteran and kick-ass podcast host). TALK TOOMEY has interviewed many rock and roll greats, so this was a particularly rad opportunity and conversation. They discuss DIRTBAG past present and future, John's relationship to Dimebag Darrell and DIME HARDWARE, saying FU to corporate and PC culture, and doing things the DIRTBAG way.
The Liquid Conversations' host and Dirtbag Shawn SixX caught up with David Silveria and Rich Nguyen of the band BI·AS to talk about all things music. Take a listen to their chat about what luck has to do with making a great band, David removing the creative bridle, Rich finding bands on Craig's List, when new music is coming, and how BI·AS is a band that needs to get out on the road.
