Bumbershoot’s Final Day, Ending On A High Note

Day 3 was a delight, not only was Solange performing (I seriously couldn't wait for that set), but our hometown super stars, ODESZA were capping off the night. But I'll get to that soon enough, lets start from the beginning. The internet is good for many things, one that I discovered recently is to … [Read more...]

Bumbershoot ’17 Day 2: A Jam-packed Marathon of Music

Bumbershoot lights up the night for fans // All photos by Morgen Schuler Day Two of Bumbershoot was jam-packed with music and people. From Lorde to Weezer and everything in between, there was something there for everyone. I might have legitimately heard every genre of music on Saturday; I was … [Read more...]

Bumbershoot ’17 Had A Sleepy Start Day One, But Ended With a Party

all photos by Morgen Schuler It was a little sleepy at the Seattle Center on Friday night, though we were in the mix of large crowd of teenagers in summer uniforms (read booty shorts and backless cropped tanks) coming out of Memorial Stadium. In fact, as a 35-year old concert goer, I felt old and a … [Read more...]

Bumbershoot ’16 Opening Day: Cautious Optimism

  We were all wondering how Bumbershoot was going to treat us this year. Would it prove to be on the upswing or are we looking at a change to the basic structure and feel that will leave the "old" festival to the history books. The answer: both. It's obvious we're not going to get our … [Read more...]

For our preview … [Read more...]

Steven Tyler Packs Them in at McCaw Hall

I purposefully kept away from any reviews of the first show (in LA earlier this week) of Steven Tyler's Out On A Limb tour before heading out to McCaw Hall yesterday to see him perform. Having only been a passive Aerosmith fan in their heyday (though who could resist "Walk This Way" or singing along … [Read more...]

Sasquatchin’ Day 4: Thanks For All The Memories

It’s day four, are you spent? I think I may need a kick in the pants, or some early afternoon ROCK AND ROLL! Thunderpussy Molly Sides and the rest of Thunderpussy strolled out onto the main stage glistening in skin tight threads. As the fog machines roared to life with the first lines from … [Read more...]

Gleason Fest 2015: Wow…

This summer, Gleason Fest had a smaller lineup than normal, but not because they couldn't find talent to fill the slots.  With Nahko & Medicine for the People and Appalachia Rising on the bill, it would be upsetting to give them anything less than two large time slots, therefore their sets took … [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. Until this year it felt like they had been setting their sites toward a younger audience. While the mural/Starbucks … [Read more...]

Bumbershoot 2015: What’s in Store?

Those of us who've been around the area for a while, have very specific feelings about Bumbershoot. Some have been around so long they remember when it was free, put on by the Seattle Center, and usually grumble about how expensive it is these days. Others are annoyed at how it changed from a local … [Read more...]
