Them Bones

It's impossible to overstate the importance of the Bones Brigade to modern skateboarding. Backed by an impeccable pedigree (team manager Stacy Peralta was Stacy Peralta, of the feared Dogtown Z-Boys), presented to the public through the visionary aesthetic sense of Craig Stecyk III and populated by the finest vert, mini-ramp and all-around skaters to be found, the Bones Brigade defined skateboarding for the '80s. Peralta has finally made a documentary on the legendary team he shaped and guided through the half-pipes of the world, and it makes its St. Louis debut tonight at 9:30 p.m. at the Landmark Tivoli Theatre (6530 Delmar Boulevard, University City; www.cinemastlouis.org). Bones Brigade: An Autobiography features interviews with all the original skaters -- Tony Hawk, Rodney Mullen, Lance Mountain, Steve Caballero, Tommy Guerrero and Mike McGill -- as well as classic footage of the team as they blew minds from coast to coast. Tickets are $10 to $12.
