Timebomb Hosts First Clothing Donation Drive
“What would Pittsburgh do without Timebomb?” Tim W. begs the question in a five-star review of the shop on Yelp.com.
Located on South Highland Avenue dividing Shadyside and East Liberty, Timebomb is the Pittsburgh hub of all apparel hyper-fresh and super dope from lines such as Kid Robot, Diamond Supply Co., Mishka, and Daily Bread PA.
However, Timebomb is more than just a sweet location with sweeter threads. Timebomb owner and founder, Brian Brick, better known as just “Brick,” has taken a special interest in promoting local rappers and hip hop artists along with his in-shop collection of more widely popular mixtapes.
In a 2013 walking tour of Pittsburgh, Steel City rapper Mac Miller acknowledged Brick for always repping and supporting him. Mac recalls, “The first time I went to Timebomb, I was 15 years old and I had mixtape that I’d made myself… I said, “Hey man I’m a rapper and I have a mixtape that I’m about to drop. Would you push it here?” He said of course.”
Brick’s commitment to community engagement doesn’t stop with fostering budding rappers. On Friday, April 24, Timebomb will be hosting their first Pittsburgh Donation Drive and Network event. Donations will be accepted over a three day period inside the central shop on S. Highland. The drive was conceived as a way to encourage the unification of the community around an apex cause that a vast majority could huddle around.
End April on a good note by performing this one act of kindness and drop off any capacity of clothing at your friendly neighborhood Timebomb shop!
