KEXP suggests the Georgetown Music Festival this Saturday

by Brian Connolly

The Georgetown Music Festival is back for another summer afternoon of indoor/outdoor entertainment. With over twenty local acts from which to choose and three stages between which to divide your attention, you shouldn’t have any problem finding something to occupy your attention.

Featuring many past-GMF alums, this year’s lineup is a poignant sampler of what Seattle’s burgeoning pop scene has to offer. With the likes of M Bison, We Wrote the Book on Connectors, and Black Whales all performing throughout the day, the forecast calls for a bouncing audience and plenty of singing along. This is fortunate for all of you festival goers, too, because the weather forecast is looking stacked in your favor as well.

It’s not all saccharin and toothaches at the festival, though. Also in the lineup are The Redwood Plan, The Hands, Spanish for 100, and H is for Hellgate. These three acts alone are enough to inject the event with the adrenaline it needs to keep the whole affair feeling properly Georgetown. You’ll need those guitars and vocals to work with and accentuate all of the brick and machinery, trust me.

An additional bonus is that the festival organizers were smart enough to think ahead: all of the acts on the Georgetown Stage start playing on the half hour while the other two stages start on the hour [schedule here]. This should alleviate unnecessary amounts of standing around waiting for another band to set up and maximize your concert-consuming experience.
