Hippy Killer Hoedown 2


The second annual Hippy Killer Hoedown combined custom bikes, hot rods and bands with vendors and over a thousand stoked guests for an enjoyable day in the sun. The Wild West Arena in Winchester, CA, close to Kutty's home in Hemet hosted the event, and this venue was an easy day's putt from nearly everywhere in Southern California.

Shows with both cars and bikes are abundant in today's scene, but far too often the bikes at these events feel like an afterthought. Maybe that's because the sheer bulk of a '50 Merc casts a dark shadow over a trimmed-down shovelhead. Not so at the Hippy Killer Hoedown. This event did a good job of including cars but not letting them overwhelm the bikes.

More and more smaller events hosted by true enthusiasts are popping up these days, and this fact might signal a changing of the guard in today's motorcycle community. There were no cheesy diversions or master builders on parade at this year's Hippy Killer Hoedown, and this suited everyone just fine. Instead, what everyone got for their ten bucks at the gate was a sunny Saturday afternoon among friends, music and modified machines, and that simple formula is a proven winner.


From Kutty Noteboom of Hippy Killer and Event Coordinator Lisa Ballard, a big thanks to the sponsors, the  vendors, the bands, Danny G and the awesome sound crew, the Lords of Riverside car club and to all of our family and friends that stepped up and helped out all day long. To the amazing crew at the Wild West Arena, great job, we will see you again on April 16, 2011.

Ah, looks like a good time. Love the bikes that Kutty does and the general scene. Not much vintage iron here in Austin despite the good hot rod and Kulture scene.

Great vibe at the show; one of the bartenders was super-foxy, and I didn't run out of gas. Sounds like a win-win to me.

Thanks to all the sponsors and Kutty!

When the Creepy Creeps came on they had a hot one on each side of the stage, so even that was covered if you stayed late enough.

Awesome, there was a ton of '49 - '54 chevys. Why does the stuff I like always end up becoming sought after? dammit
