atiba is now part-owner of the american football house

"Last fall we received word that 704 W High Street in Urbana might be sold soon. Shortly thereafter @americfootball, @polyvinylrecords, @chrisstrongphotography, @atibaphoto & @openhousecontemporary made a pact: we'd all buy the house together before developers could demolish it and build a condo.

Today, with sincere joy, we are excited to share that we have collectively purchased The American Football House in an effort to preserve its place and legacy within the community that built it.

Here's to keeping this landmark alive for many more years to come. 🏠"

honestly, that's a huge ass flex, hopefully i can visit before the summer ends, if i don't stay home

What a bizarre but interesting combination of things. Did Atiba take the photo for the album cover or something like that?

The Polyvinyl owner skates. They did a collab board with Girl before. Not sure exactly how he knows Atiba

they had a connection prior to this, not sure how it came to be, my guess is he was their tour photographer for a time because i saw him taking photos at a show they played here, this was in like 2016

the house didn't make the music, it's more home ownership news, but slap doesn't have a real estate section

Love this - my wife went to U of I and is in the never meant video they filmed in the house back in 09' or so - the love between Atiba and Mike is real, I share a studio space here in Chi with Bobby from Joan of Arc/Love of Everything/etc. and they're homies too. Skating got me into emo, for better or for worse so I'm here for it!

Somewhere there's an edit of me skating in a cardigan to 'honestly' in like 03' - lots of impossibles and wallies, I've always been ahead of my time. Typed between meetings, after a skate break and my afternoon adderal.

Also had no idea who/what american football is. How much does a house like that cost in the middle of Illinois? Like 400 bucks?

Here in the U.S. we just call it The Soccer House.

Going in halfsies on that house is probably chump change for Atiba. Now he'll get a very modest passive income as a landlord.
