We’re happy to announce that Rigsketball registration will officially open June 1st!

We’ve changed some stuff, made some new friends, and are busting ass to make sure that this is the most ripper year of Rigsketball yet.

HOW REGISTRATION WORKS: This year, we’re letting bands sign up, first-come-first-serve. Starting on June 1st, you can simply go to www.rigsketball.com, scroll over the open spots, and click on the one that you want to sign your band up for—each spot will have the dates and times for ALL of your matches throughout the entire tournament so make sure that your band can make it happen as far as scheduling goes, for not only the first match because your schedule will be set for the second, third, and so on.

We’re stoked on everything about this year’s tournament. Here’s a few of the things that rip extra hard!

-This year we’ll have games on everyday from July 19th, to the 24th—which will be the semifinals, finals, and a big free show at Holocene.

-The first round of tournament play will take place at PDX POP NOW!

-We’ll have unlimited Red Bull for all you thirsty, tired, rippers!

-We’ll be putting out another comp of songs from all the bands that play in Rigsketball 2013 and this year, our comp will be curated by Tender Loving Empire, and the physical tapes will be manufactured by Citrus Tapes!

So much more… We’ll get the word out about the show/shows we’re putting together this year—free at Holocene, a million bands, close 10th St. right in front? Let’s rip! More on all that rips soon!

So head over to Rigsketball.com on June 1st to claim your band’s spot in this year’s tourney, it will rip!

TxE playing against Radiation City was the best matchup we saw so far in the tournament. So no shit we took a bunch of video and Bim edited it into this ripping coverage for your eyes and ears!

Fuck yeah! We’ve got so much rad stuff for this thing! My Autumn’s Done Come, Sean Flinn & The Royal We, and Nick Jaina are in the final four! (TxE VS Radiation City had to push to Monday to ball because they’re playing Pickathon and Warped Tour) but one of those two killer bands will round out the final four! We’ll have the semifinals, a dunk competition, and then the FINALS. And right when that’s done everybody hops into Bunk Bar, we crown the champs and give the final four their prizes and get down with this rad FREE SHOW! Rips no?

You can buy the shit out of these T’s & Tanks!

Bim made these T’s and Tanks using the age-old “Pizza box stencil” method he picked up being a piece of trash in garbage bands that pretended to have merch. These T’s have the ever great words “THIS RIPS” on the front (In gold, duh) and “RIGSKETBALL 2012” + Our full band roster in alphabetical order on the flip side!  

Not only will you get this handmade and super rad shirt sent right to your door, when you support Rigsketball with your purchase we’ll throw in a free set of copies of our TWO HOUR LONG Rigsketball 2012 Comp double tape!   All the money we make on these shirts will go right back into the tournament so rest assured when you order, you’re making this event possible!
