Bumbershoot This Weekend

Bumbershoot

Bumbershoot, Seattle’s Annual Music and Arts Festival starts tomorrow (Sep 5) and continues throughout the Labor Day weekend. Music critic in-residence Drake LeLane will be on the scene at Seattle Center this weekend reporting on all the comings and goings at the festival.

In other Bumbershoot news, Youngershoot, three days of “kid-specific and family-friendly programming”, makes it inaugural bow at this year’s festival. Ironically, Drake is attending Bumber “kid free” this weekend, (or “fancy free”, if you will), so I guess we’ll have to hear his first hand reviews of Spin The Bottle Jr. some other time… or will we?

Take a look at the more or less complete list of Bumbershoot performers after the jump or check out the entire lineup at sched.bumbershoot.org.
