Busy at Bumbershoot

Blitzen Trapper

This is my first Bumbershoot- and thus far, I’ve managed to stay so busy that I haven’t even had time to update! I’ve already taken hundreds of photos, and am looking forward to the John Vanderslice and Old 97’s show later today.

Things I’ve seen that were awesome:
The shows in the KEXP Music Lounge, which are a lot more intimate and friendly than the teeming masses outside
Blitzen Trapper, who had tons of energy and worked the crowd into a frenzy in the first three songs
Kate Tucker & Sons of Sweden, whose voice drew me in from my wandering about the entrance
The coolest buskers, an African drumming band that deserves their own post
The cutest 5-month-old kitten, courtesy of an animal rescue booth

Things I wish I’d seen:
Monotonix, who got kicked offstage by the fire marshal for being too wild

I’m sure I will have something to add to this list later, but I have to run before I’m late for JV ;)

    I think Blitzen Trapper may have had the highest metblogger concentration except that all of us must have been there at different times.

    Hah! Interesting- I did see Samantha for a bit, but that was it. Funny :D
