Want to watch musicians take their skills to the streetball court? 3 on 3 metal bands vs. indie rock basketball battles in their stage clothes? Want to see bands like Built to Spill and BOYS defy all that you knew was possible when they try for that off-the-bumper dunk? We sure do!
We’re stoked to have another Rigsketball tourney going down at Treefort Music Fest. Rigsketball, the child of Portland’s Mayoral Candidate, Bim Ditson (also drummer for And And And and maker of some mad chainmaille), is an all-band tournament played on a regulation height hoop attached to the back of And And And’s tour van. This light hearted rugby-basketball hybrid competition is one of the many interesting attractions (outside of music) at Treefort.
My favorite thing about Rigsketball is when it becomes wacky ball, and people are just light heartedly having a blast and being ridiculous. -Bim Ditson
