Devon Howard has been busy getting ready for the world premiere of The Present, one of the films we featured in the new Tin Shed:
Hey Everyone. Thomas Campbell's new surf film is coming to town this weekend. Please forward this to anyone in SD and Orange County you think might enjoy a nice evening with a little live music by Mattson Two and some great surfing on La Paloma's big screen. Best, Devon
The Present – A Surfing Film by Thomas Campbell
March 6 & 7, 2009
Two shows each night: 7 and 9 pm
La Paloma Theatre
471 S Coast Highway 101, Encinitas, CA
Musical guests: Mattson Two & Ray Barbee
Presale tickets available at Patagonia Cardiff
After the premiere, Thomas Campbell and the Mattson Two will hit the road for a 30-city film tour. Campbell hopes to help keep alive the dying tradition of surfers gathering at a local theater to view a new independent surf film. Tour dates and online ticket sales at trimyourlifeaway.com.
Hit the jump for a taste of jazz from the Mattson Two and a few more nuggets.

Have to say, I'm really excited to see The Present as Sprout is one of my favorite modern-day surf films. Hope to see some of you at the Ventura and Santa Barbara screenings.
