Vans is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, and threw a party for itself at Brooklyn’s House of Vans on Wednesday night (3/16), one of a few similar events the company is presenting around the country. Nas headlined and had the packed house in the palm of his hand, with the crowd shouting back his rhymes throughout his classics-filled set. (A pic of the setlist is below) Old pal Capone joined him for a few numbers as well.

Yeasayer opened (pics here) and there was birthday cake and pizza (via Roberta’s), and Questlove kept the party going after Nas with a fun DJ set. House of Vans has also gotten a bit of a makevoer for its 50th birthday, too, and they were giving out knit caps, t-shirts, and screen-printed posters as well. Pics from the whole night continue below.
