Welcome to Bumbershoot! Well, it's been a long week of recovering from "festival flu" after just two days at Bumbershoot 2010; it was so bad that we couldn't get out of bed Monday morning to catch the last day of the festival. We did, however, make it to the second day and snapped some good photos from the Sunday...
The Budos Band Bumbershoot 2010, Day One.... First stop for the day was the KEXP in-studio session with The Budos Band, playing a number of tracks from their new Budos Band III album. The band is self-described as Afro-soul, and pretty much every song the band plays makes you feel like you're Indiana Jones running from the enormous rolling boulder...
Who doesn't love Labor Day Weekend? One last three-day weekend to close out the summer months and music to see across the country: the inaugural North Coast Music Festival in Chicago, Jazz Aspen Snowmass in Aspen, FYF Fest in Los Angeles, plenty of East Coast stuff that I'm not even aware of, and last but not least, Bumbershoot Festival...
Unlike Bumbershoot 2008, which was a gorgeous 70-degrees-and-sparsely-cloudy weekend, Bumbershoot 2009 was a much more Seattlesque weekend.  The Yeah Yeah Yeahs kicked off our Sunday afternoon, but between the ugly weather and a lackluster crowd, the show never really took off.  I have to admit that I'm only a fan of four or five of the band's "bigger" songs,...
The first day of Bumbershoot started early at 12:30 with an indoor set by Dyno Jamz.  An up-and-coming funky hip-hop act from here in Seattle, they recently won the EMP Sound Off Competition, an under 21 battle of the bands now approaching its 8th year.  Supported by the grandeur of the EMP Sky Church's enormous lighting rig, the band...
Just a quick update before heading out the door for the last day of Bumbershoot Music and Arts Festival in Seattle, and I thought I'd leave a selection of photos from the weekend thus far.  Also, stay tuned for a weekend recap very soon. All Photos by Kane Jamison
Seattle's musical grab-bag of a festival known as Bumbershoot is coming up September 5-7, and I'll be headed back this year to check out the activities. Unbeknownst to most of the festival-goers, Bumbershoot is an arts festival as opposed to a strictly music festival, and has a wide variety of options outside of the live music.  I had a...
Phish Friday came a little early this week. Tune in to http://www.livephish.com/radio/listen.m3u or stream from Phish.com to hear the upcoming live album At The Roxy. The site should be streaming each night today and tomorrow, though I'm not sure how much of the album, or at what points in the day, or if it's in its entirety...
According to the Rock n' Roll Daily blog over at Rolling Stone, the upcoming movie based upon Grateful Dead roadie Steve Parish's book, Home Before Daylight, is starting to take shape.  Though first announced in summer 2007, Rock Daily reports that the movie has some potential actors on board as well as a preliminary soundtrack: The Grateful Dead biopic adapted from Home...
For those of you looking for a way to combine your political passions with the current Halloween season and some free live music, you may be interested in Trick or Vote.  Trick or Vote is a nationwide nonpartisan costume canvass taking place on Halloween in a city near you.  After a few hours of get-the-vote-out canvassing I'm told that...
