RIGSKETBALL 2014

RIGSKETBALL 2014

3v3 Portland band basketball tourney played wherever, on a regulation height hoop that's bolted to the top of a van.

Holy rip! Thanks so much to everyone who played, watch, helped, donated, sponsored, and generally made Rigsketball 2014 the best year to date! First off, huge ups to Red Bull for the limitless things they did for us and the constant support! Fucking Juliet Zulu for the amazing video that will come out this week! (it will do whatever the thing that’s better than ripping is). The man with a plan who was there every minute juggling cameras, crews, and all the stuff we threw at him Mike Elliott! Ben Hubbird at Party Damage Records made curating a 32 band compilation on a crazy tight schedule look as easy as that could ever look, plus hooking up posters and countless other things, BEN RIPS! And rips yes we love you CD Baby! The one and only Todd Walberg crushed the photo game in the hot sun all week, trooper and one hell of a guy! Bearcubbin, Sons of Huns, The Ghost Ease, And And And, Talkative, and Old Age for playing our show at THE EAGLES LODGE! Way to be cool with us doing crazy shit in your packing lot and venue space and thanks again for all the $1 beers! Such killer work from Tobin for sound at the show via KPSU’s great PA system! Ian Shaw with the lasers and fog, even though we asked him like 12 hours before the show: NAILED IT, BROTHER! Dude, PDX Pop Now!, you guys are the BEST! Perfect location for the first three days, amazing shows as always, and the most ripping volunteers that one could ask to work with! Eleven PDX Magazine with the clutch full page ad for our big show, love you rippers! Party Boyz with infinite battery life on their recorder and sas that can keep up! Killing Sasquatch for making the dream of RIGSKETBEER a reality! GoPro for the cams and inspiration for our $7 glider-drone cam, zip line cam, and the killer chesty shots, this footage is TYTE! Cary Watts for being a city permitting guru and for general ripping! Rochelle Hunter for making the show run as smooth as a real basketball court! Sam at Curly Tapes for the art on the comp and making the tapes! Jodie Beechem for making sure Bim consumed food and water and didn’t turn completely into a Craisin. Thanks for all the crab at hotdogs at the finals Nathan! For the heavy lifting on-site while no one is looking Jonathan Sallas. The kind words from VICE, The Portland Mercury and so many more, we truly appreciate every word of it! And ONE MORE TIME FOR ALL THE BANDS THAT PLAYED! IT’S ALL BECAUSE OF YOU RIPPERS! Peter Rainbeau, Coma Serfs, WIBG, PDX Music Writers, Magic Fades, Mannequinhead, Who’s the Ross?, Sama Dams, And And And, Radion, animal eyes, The Hague, Foxy Lemon, Novosti, Psychomagic, The We Shared Milk, trick sensei, Nature Thief, Tigerface, The Flew, Us Lights, Lubec, Minden/Orquestra Pacifico Tropical, Hustle and Drone, THANKS, A Happy Death, XRAY.fm, The Solars, Old Age (Surf Tacos), Sorta Ultra, The Morals, Con Bro Chill, MISTER TANG

There’s so many more that helped out this year and we love you all but this post is getting fucking LOOOOOOOOONG:)
