Tectonica

Tectonica

Using bloody big speaker stacks on the main street, Tectonica will use sounds to tell the geological story of the West Coast—from 500 million years ago until today. Tectonica will kick-off on Friday at sunset with a rumble that will set the scene for a weekend of the epic noise and vibrations of volcanoes, geysers, earthquakes and meteorite hits. Ending on Sunday, we celebrate the most recent great geological event—ACDC’s 1976 visit—with an earth shattering hour of their greatest tracks. BOOM!
