By some stroke of luck we got an email the other week asking if Cathedrals would be interested in playing Treasure Island Music Festival this year as a last minute addition to this Sunday’s noon slot.
I remember driving up to “the city” 7 years ago for the inaugural TIMF in 2007 while still a college student in Palo Alto and coming away with a newfound fascination with SF’s culture and geography.
The island—surrounded by SF’s 70’s skyline, gorgeous green hills and infinite blue ocean—has become my favorite setting in which to discover and experience art and music.
If you’re around this coming Sunday join us on a little field trip to the island. We’ll kick things off with our set on the main stage at noon and then spend the rest of the day galavanting around to catch Massive Attack, Alt-J, Washed Out, TV on the Radio, New Pornographers, Banks, Polica, Chet Faker, and more. Hope to see you there!
The yurt compound of William Coperthwaite near Machiasport, Maine.
No one alive has done more to promote yurts than Bill Coperthwaite. Coming across the style in a 1962 National Geographic article, he recognized in the yurt a construction method so simple and durable, that almost anyone, regardless of skill or budget, could build their own home. He’s spent the last 4 decades living off-grid, lecturing, selling plans, and leading hundreds of yurt building workshops around the globe.
Read more on Bill’s life and philosophy in his book: A Handmade Life.
