Thank you, everyone! SD Revival Premier a Great Experience!

Thank you to everyone who came out Friday nite! You all helped to make the nite a blast!

We we're all super stoked on the turnout. Thank you for supporting.

The Revival film was absolutely incredible! The full length feature certainly lived up to the superb trailers. All the sections were super sick. The soundtrack was excellent. We could gush about our favorite sections for days but we don't want to spoil any parts for anyone. We want those who haven't seen it yet to go in fresh to get a true first-time Revival-viewing experience--a phenomenal rush.

However, we will comment on the final scene in the film. It was one of our favorite scenes ever recorded on video involving a bicycle. This scene represents our love for the bicycle and the sense of freedom which this human-propelled instrument can provoke. Wonka nailed it.

It was such a fun experience to sit there on the ground with our friends, beer in hand, collectively experiencing Revival and all it's greatness for the first time. After the film ended, I just wish I could have pressed a "re-play" button to experience it all over again.

I was able to watch the film the next day at home and the second-time experience is still a blast, as well. The film really has high replay value. Can't wait for the DVD release.

Thanks so much to Wayne Morehart and Tom Briggs (Skitch and Morehart Films) for allowing us to be apart of the Revival experience. You guys have made a stellar picture. Big ups. It was an honor to coordinate the San Diego premier.

Thanks to the riders in the film, including Jake Ricker and Torey for getting us connected w/ Peel Sessions which ended up putting us into a position to meet Wayne and Tom.

Thanks to The Whistlestop for supporting the nite and allowing us to lock up a Friday at such an awesome space.

-Eddie Kon
