Treasure Island Music Festival in San Francisco, CA

September 14th, 2007

Sep 15, 2007

Treasure Island. There it sits in the middle of San Francisco bay. To most of us it's rarely set foot upon, simply driven through, the halfway point on the Bay Bridge. It was built and pirate- and/or Stevenson-named in 1939 as the site of the World's Fair-esque “Golden Gate International Exposition." Since then it's been a lot of things, among them a naval base and site of the Battlebots television show, in which machines battled to a fiery death. Apparently, people live there, too. More

Little did I know that I was about to walk into a drumfest at theLaunchpad. I got there quite a bit early to hang out alone and have a few beers—alone time being at a premium with a new son. After several PBRs and a few games of Ms. Pacman, Ponytail took the stage. More
