Rob Machado's Melali: The Drifter Sessions - Slim's SF, 4/12/11

by Brooke Tessman, Surfrider SF Chapter Volunteer

On Tuesday night, Neel Singh, Adam Weiner, Rachel Kippen and I arrived to a crowded house at Slim's in San Francisco. We had the opportunity to set up the Surfrider outreach table in a prominent position close to the front door.

We, along with everyone else, were here to see opening band, Con Brio, and Rob Machado's Melali: The Drifter Sessions. The crowd hushed as the band performed live, and in sync, as The Drifter Sessions surf film ran in the background. A truly mesmerizing experience...

Throughout the night, current Surfrider members stopped by our table to say hello, along with a lot of new folks looking to learn more about our organization. We had about 25 folks (of all ages) sign up and ask to receive our Surfrider newsletter. In between sets, Sunny (see photo inset of Brooke, Sunny, Rachel) stopped by to sign up for our raffle in the hopes of winning our reusable Surfrider bag. Sunny has already been surfing for a year and a half...go Sunny!

Thanks to everyone for your continued support of Surfrider and yet another successful show. Special thanks to Tracey Buck of Slim's for helping to coordinate the show. We look forward to working with Slim's again in the near future!
