  1. Crowded House???? Oh boy…they need to just slip quietly into retirement.

    Hey, I live in Seattle and actually worked for One Reel for quite a while. I must say that this year’s line-up is pretty impressive, even though I don’t go to Bumbershoot anymore because of the crowds. Sure to be some good shows, however, and I may very venture out this year!

  2. mmm bumbershoot is off to a good start. i will say that last year my highlights were metric and feist, both put on a phenominal show, but the shins put on a great show, a little bit of hip-hop and the folk rock sounds good,
    better than kanye anyways.
    wheres common market and the guys from mass line media though?
