Michael Franti Salutes The Giants
Last night the San Francisco Giants ended a 52 year drought (56 if one considers the origins of the team back in New York), defeating the Texas Rangers 3-1 to win the World Series. Michael Franti has celebrated his home town team by reworking his single, “Say Hey (I Love You),” which originally appeared on 2008’s All Rebel Rockers. The new version is titled “Say Hey (I Love You, Giants)” and references Tim Lincecum and Brian Wilson, among others (Wilson is music fan, who was sighted at a Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi Band show earlier this year). The video appears above, or can be seen in a larger frame over on the Relix video blog.
Tonight Michael Franti and Spearhead are in Northampton, MA at the Calvin Theatre.
