I would be lying to say that this wasn’t an odd show. The stage was next to the entrance of some hip hop club which was playing good music (Tribe Called Quest, Jay Z) but had young patrons with anatomy bursting this way and that. The air was dense with body spray, properly fitting clothes were scarce and our attention was elusive, but we played on….
Big thanks to Content Magazine though, this footage is dope.

This past July, The Rum Diary played their first show in five years at the C.A.M.P. festival in Guerneville. Huddled in the middle of a redwood forest, they resisted the primal urge to chant the Ewok Song (Yub Nub) for an hour straight, and played some songs. Thanks to Joe for capturing the nice sounds.
