Bumbershoot ’16 Opening Day: Cautious Optimism

  We were all wondering how Bumbershoot was going to treat us this year.

It's obvious we're not going to get our … [Read more...]

Bumbercrazy 2015: Lightening, Rain, and Music Music Music

Well, another Bumbershoot in the books and it was a hell of a time. The lineup was chock full of local and national acts, a solid mix that had honestly been lacking in recent years.

Bumbershoot 2015: What’s in Store?

Those of us who've been around the area for a while, have very specific feelings about Bumbershoot.

Bumbershoot 2013 Day 2: Diary of a Wanderer

The problem with Bumbershoot is one that every large music festival-goer has had: Sometimes, there’s so much good music going on simultaneously, it’s hard to see it all. Normally you would just pick your favorites of the day, make sure you’re there for those shows in particular, and try to catch … [Read more...]

A Love Letter to Death Cab For Cutie: Bumbershoot Day Two

I have a lot of weird blind spots when it comes to music, I've been finding out. One of them is Death Cab For Cutie, whom I've listened to for as long as they've existed, but have never seen them live. I don't know why. Perhaps it's because they only played at big festivals, or because I fancied … [Read more...]
