TripKnight – Bay to Breakers Vibe

Last Sunday I was out at the Bay to Breakers and caught this excellent hip hop collective, TripKnight Party Crew, as they work the crowd. One of the things I really like about this band is the subtlety of their music played by a live band. And hey, since we’ve found them, they can introduce themselves…

This Video is of the TripKnight Party Crew. A.K.A the sound and art collective. The first M.C. is Dove. The second M.C. is Metaphysical from Reno who is also in a group Called Element and Tours with Digital Underground as well. The third M.C. is Hotsteez who is also with Element. The Drummer is L.Cooper, who plays drums for MuhdKat, plays bass for Adisa (also of TripKnight). L.Cooper sings Blues and Folk Rock for herself and raps for TripKnight and a group called Curbside. The Guitar player is Jerry. You also have Brooke on Keys.

    great party vibe! so now you are moving on to film I see… I really wanna do the same but my fancy camera doesnt do video. Never should have given away my old point and shoot.

    yes… on to film! which i have been wanting to do for awhile. yet another creative thing to get obsessive about. i was lucky to be able to get this in one long take… but yes, i figure this is Website presents a great opportunity to start messing with video.

    there’s another song i filmed from this same collective where i am right up close to them so there’s no people dancing, just them. i think i like even more and i will post when I have time to put it together.
