Exclusive Video Premiere

Born Ruffians - "Badonkadonkey" Live

Nate and I met these boys upstairs at the bottom of the hill in San Francisco (think SF’s version of the Troubadour). When we walked in to their “dressing room” (see: room at top of creaking stairs), they were fist deep into their venue supplied vegetarian dinners and cold veggie platter. As we waited for them to finish, Nate and I scouted potential locations around the venue. We happily stumbled upon a well lit but endearingly dingy concrete and chicken wire walkway that looked like the venue’s top secret exit for bands being chased by swarms of hysterical fans. It was here that the trio set up their battery operated casio keyboard, acoustic guitar and tambourine for this inspired rendition of “Badonkadonkey” from their new album Red Yellow and Blue.
