The Surfrider Foundation is an international nonprofit that focuses on coastline protection and enjoyment. Its four Hawai`i chapters work on issues like water quality, access and responsible development. In an ongoing look at live music in the islands, HPR's Noe Tanigawa found a couple of Hawai`i's best bands at a recent Surfrider Foundation benefit.
The Throwdowns perform for the Surfrider Foundation tonight at the Lava Lounge on Kaua`i and Saturday night at Mulligan's in Wailea, Maui. Saturday is international "Hands Across the Sand" day in support of sustainable energy and against offshore drilling. Check surfrider.org
