Cloud Cult at Black Cat 5/28

Cloud Cult brought their multi-media show back to DC last weekend at the Black Cat. DC Surfrider’s MOP was happy to join them and talk OCEANS to folks at the show. We didn’t talk to a lot of folks (slow night for some reason!) but we had a good time and the show was great. Thanks to Gayathri Sriskanthan and Shelley Alingas for volunteering to be at the show! Huge thanks to Connie Minowa of Cloud Cult who got us on the guest list—thanks Connie!

Brett Dennen and Reverb at 930 Club

Brett Dennen was at the 9:30 Club last Saturday the 21st of May and DC Surfrider’s Music Outreach Program was on hand to talk ocean pollution to concert attendees. Big thanks to Kate Brennan for taking the reigns, as I was out of town—great job Kate! Apparently Brett let all of the volunteers come backstage. He put on a great show despite being out all day picking up trash and playing an outdoor mini-concert at DC Surfrider and Barefoot Wines’s clean up at Anacostia Skate Pavilion. Huge thanks to Reverb for letting Surfrider be a part of this event!

Xavier Rudd at 9:30 Club

DC Surfrider’s Music Outreach Program was on hand for Xavier Rudd’s show at the 9:30 Club last Friday night. Thanks to Kate Brennan for volunteering! It was her first time representing Surfrider but she did a great job. HoneyHoney opened for Xavier and put out a great round of warm stompy blues. Xavier Rudd brought his tribal beats and signature didgeridoos. The crowd ate it up.

At the Surfrider table we talked to a good amount of fans, and signed up some people for our campaign against plastic bags in Virginia and Maryland. Altogether a great evening of music and talking oceans! Thanks again to Christi Thompson at Thompson Artist Management and Sarah Flynn with Xavier Rudd for hooking Surfrider up with this great show!
