Gathering of The Tribes,

San Francisco, California, United States San Francisco, California, United States

  • About the event

    Gathering of the Tribes: The Second Renaissance is our second music and art festival created to bring the local music and art community together from the San Francisco and Oakland psychedelic movement. One thing that sets this festival apart from other West Coast music festivals is that Gathering of Tribes gives new, up and coming local bands an opportunity to showcase their music, in addition to sharing the stage with established acts from the Bay Area and the West Coast.  Every year, Gathering of the Tribes invites local visual artists to showcase their work for bands, which has been a long tradition since the days of the Red Dog Saloon, The Matrix and Avalon Ballroom.  Additionally, independent merchants come together as a single marketplace to sell their goods.

    This year, The Midway and Pow Magazine are joining forces with The San Francisco Great Society to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Summer of Love, bringing bands from 1967 and 2017 together to celebrate our musical heritage that started in the San Francisco Bay Area 50 years ago.  The Tribe is coming back on October 21 and 22.

    Why should you sponsor?

    I started at the KFJC studios in 2011 in the San Francisco Bay Area from two online radio shows about the magazine print version of Pow Magazine from the late 80s. The programs inspired the social media version of Pow Magazine using MySpace and Facebook as the anchors to new music, but eventually adding Twitter and Instagram three-years later. Shortly after expanding Pow into the social media world, I started adding people to Pow to cover local art, music, political events and music festivals. Today, Pow Magazine's official website anchors Pow's social media websites and offer other media services.

    And Pow is growing with serious passionate music contributors from around the world.

     

    I have a long history and relationship with Bay Area music long before I started Pow Magazine. Working with hundreds of bands throughout my life and plans to start other Pow Magazines in other cities throughout the world to support local music and live Pow shows. I am remembered curating two fundraiser music festivals for the late great Dirk Dirksen, emcee of the San Francisco punk rock clubs Mabuhay Gardens and On Broadway in San Francisco.

    The No More Censorship Defense Fund Shows were held in San Francisco and Santa Clara California complete with psychedelic liquids and film visuals with bands Pow Magazine supported at the time. The shows were to help pay legal fees for Jello Biafra and Alternative Tentacles. Complaints by the Parents Music Resource Center (PMRC) about the artwork inside the Dead Kennedys album, Frankenchrist, the infamous H. R. Giger poster Landscape XX (Penis Landscape) brought Biafra to trial in Los Angeles for distributing “harmful material to minors". Pow Magazine will be releasing the movie about the two benefit shows on YouTube for its 2017 anniversary in the fall.

     

    Today, I contribute my passion for music and experience by curating rock festivals, local shows, promoting bands, political activism, discovering and documenting new art and music.

     

    The first Gathering Of The Tribes was a daylong music and art festival organized by the San Francisco Great Society, and with the help of Pow Magazine and Counter Culture Group. The festival took place on September 13, 2015 at Public Works SF in the Mission District of San Francisco, California. It was carefully curated to present to its attendees the underground rock music scene of the Bay Area over the span of twelve hours. Musical performances took place on two stages, one being upstairs and the other, downstairs. The objective was to showcase the Bay Area’s new breed of psychedelia and its sub-genres, as well as celebrate its musical and artistic ancestry. The festival’s name is a direct reference to the Human Be-In that took place in Golden Gate Park, January 14, 1967. Psychedelic music relapsed into its second wave in the late 1980s, early 1990s, roughly. It transcended into a third wave, connecting the new millennium to music and ideas dating back to the 1960s. The festival urged to distinguish itself from other popular events and festivals in that it was a community effort to bring everyone together and encourage local musicians and artists to rely on each other in order to be recognized and supported. Given that it is a community effort, there’s no specific owner or organizer for this festival, but I am the festival organizer working with the venue and Amoeba and I am planning the Gathering of The Tribes 2017 festival, This two-day event is to bring forth new ideas and incorporate the best of what everybody involved has to bring to the cause.
