This profile film follows Bim Ditson and Rigsketball, a bracket style basketball tournament featuring 32 Portland bands played on a regulation height hoop attached to the back of Bim's band's tour van. Through sweat, skinned knees, and a DIY ethos, Bim's dedication to building a living, breathing music community is unrivaled.
