Quiksilver Pro Concert Schedule Online (Surfpocalypse Gets a Soundtrack)

Quiksilver today posted a tentative, subject to change, schedule for the Live Site.  I’ve copied the schedule below directly from the press release and have thrown in some links if you’re unfamiliar with particular artists.

All and all, the Surfpocalypse Live Site looks like a fun mix of bands that most should be able to find at least one to like.  Oh yea, and did I mention it is completely free?  Really, who wouldn’t enjoy Badfish – a great Sublime tribute band.  I’m actually most excited by the band Wavves playing.  Described as a “lo-fi/punk pop noise band,” they released a gem of an album last year called “King of the Beach.”  And for those who were at Jones Beach last week, The Flaming Lips are back.

The press release also includes info on some of the celebs coming down, and includes info on the demos planned in the live site as well.  After the summer X-Games have come and gone (and I often forgot to set my DVR), it will be pretty neat to see this stuff live.  Whether you’re a fan of skating/bmx/motox or not, watching their physical feats in person is none-the-less impressive.

The kickoff weekend, (starting on the 3rd) will include XTREME sports personalities and celebrities as: “Tony Hawk, Kelly Slater, Dane Reynolds, Omar Hassan, Christian Hosoi, Danny Way, Travis Pastrana, Andrè Villa, Nate Adams, Robbie Maddison, Rob Dyrdek, Stephanie Gilmore, Travis Rice, Torah Bright, Lisa Andersen and Sally Fitzgibbons.  It will be interesting to see how Travis Pastrana is limping around – and certainly not Nitro Circusing – after his spectacular crash on Thursday night.

Concert Schedule follows, notice that there are no events listed after the 10th, though the competition goes through the 15th.

Benefit Concert Hosted By Kelly Slater & Friends + The Max Weinberg Experience

Taking Back Sunday

The Sounds

SLUNT

I’m still most interested by the 9/11 benefit concert (to be held on the 10th) hosted by Kelly Slater that remains shrouded in mystery, but heavily hyped.  One detail is now revealed though, Slater will have the Max Weinberg Experience – the drummer for Bruce and the E Street Band on stage.  Is Bruce coming to town?  I could only dream.

And the sports demos: note that the Tony Hawk Vert Jam will be in NYC, not Long Beach.  This continues to support the concept that its the Quiksilver Pro New York, not the Quiksilver Pro Long Beach, and events will take place as much in Manhattan as here.

  1. Biggies all aren’t they? Who the heck cares? Let them play in the local bars and burger joints and leave Long Beach to the families that live here.
