Wow. We arrived in San Francisco last week, a little nervous about spending two days on an artificial island in the middle of the San Francisco Bay, asking ourselves “Who actually lives on Treasure Island?” and “Is it really made out of trash and dredged mud?” Once we actually made it on-site (after a left lane exit ramp followed by a hairpin turn), we were blown away by the amazing views of the Bay Bridge, cryptic “no trespassing” and “radioactive” signage and laid-back vibe of the Treasure Island Music Festival.
We were onsite at TIMF for both Saturday’s dance line-up and Sunday’s indie rock jam, silkscreening scarves with custom SF-themed designs from the Royal Scourge and handing out free Incase product. The line for the Incase booth was at times out of control, winding itself into other vendors’ tents (sorry, Boost Mobile and Jim Streibich!)
We had a blast talking to festival goers about Incase and helping them choose custom Royal Scourge designs (Tenderloin furry with ballgag vs. Mission furry with fixie bike) for their scarves. Our scarves definitely came in handy as the sun went down and the wind whipped up!
We were also lucky enough to get Incase product to some of the festival bands: CSS, TV on the Radio (killer), Spiritualized (OMFG), Vampire Weekend, the Raconteurs and more.
