If Bumbershoot [sat :: sun :: mon] proper isn’t enough or you’re skipping the festival itself (perhaps you’re otherwise occupied with a fair, PAX, or a football kickoff?) and just want a taste or spot to meet up with your dampened exhausted Bumbershoot pals, there’s no shortage of pre-, after-, and during-parties. Here’s a brief list, I’ll add more as information surfaces.

  • Friday: Kick off Bumbershoot weekend with the pre-party at the High Dive. Victor Shade, Born Anchors, Grynch, and the Redwood Plan get you in the spirit, plus raffles for kids. $10, 9pm. [highdive]
  • Saturday-Sunday: After a day of beer gardening, Queen Anne’s Solo hits the sweet spot between dive and meatmarket within just a couple blocks from the Seattle Center campus. On top of that, stars of some of the festival’s bands will be chilling out there for DJ sets. Monday’s usually Twin Peaks night, but that might get postponed due to last gasps of long weekend revelry. [solo-bar]
  • Sunday: A reminder that the official afterparty is at Neumo’s. In addition to DJs, the headliner is a big name already performing at Bumbershoot, who, if the event is written up by more conservative media outlets, might have a few letters of their name replaced with asterisks. $free, with RSVP.

  • Sunday: Another afterparty, starring U.S.E. and the premiere of their brand new music video and digital album. See you on the red carpet. [havanasocial]
  • Sunday: We skimped on the comedy recommendations in our preview, mostly because those are the shows that are often the toughest to get into and they’re mainly all worthwhile (particularly if you need a laugh in the rain). The comedy crew afterparties with almost certain hilarity. People’s Republic of Komedy hosts, Mary Lynn Rajskub (the original 24 terror-fighting awkwardly awesome computer genius) headlines. Just kidding. MLR had to cancel due to filming sone terror fighting, but other funny people will be there and the event will be FREE. 10 pm. [chopsuey]
