“Direction of Dreams” at The Warfield

Before Hippie Sabotage arrived on stage, the opening acts at the show were ilo ilo and Sebastian Paul. The environment inside The Warfield had a vast, diverse set of attendees coming to see the brothers. There were college-aged attendees who were thrilled to spend the night out with their friends and older attendees, particularly those from their mid-20s to mid-30s, who were still excited to attend a great night of live music.

Hippie Sabotage turned up the noise with booming bass drops and guitar riffs that electrified The Warfield. Kevin Saurer hyped up the crowd with his flows and rhymes while his brother Jack provided the beats and drops. There were exciting moments where Kevin got involved with the crowd by engaging in friendly mosh-pits and singing along with the crowd while jumping alongside them. The brothers displayed their skills with the guitar, the DJ mixer, and their own vocals.
