Womp, Womp, Womp. Wobbling bass speakers. Giraffe, zebra and furry-headed costumes. Sweat-dripping fans hanging over the balcony railing. Front-row heroes bouncing with their hands in the air. Freaks dancing on tables, chairs, anything wide enough to stand on. Lights. Video mashes. Hip-hop. Metal. Funk. This is Bassnectar. Yet there’s more to it, than a massive sound, a beat-freak following and out-of-control performances.
It's rare that San Franciscans make the trek to the Outer Sunset on a Friday evening. But last Friday night, legendary skateboarder and artist Tommy Guerrero drew out the crowds to Mollusk Surf Shop for a concert to promote Thomas Campbell's latest surf flick, The Present. The film premiered earlier this month and features some of the best surfers in the world, including Dane Reynolds, Joel Tudor, Ry Craike and Rob Machado.
