Bumbershoot 2017, Day One: J GRGRY

Covered in pink and gold paint, J GRGRY took the Mural Amphitheatre stage in Seattle Center. Under the gaze of the Space Needle with the sun beaming down on the band, it made for an electric opening for the first day of the Bumbershoot Music & Arts Festival.┬áLead vocalist, Joe Gregory, moved across the stage like Perry Farrell and Ziggy Stardust were both possessing his body at the same time. Even that might be a disservice because Gregory was uniquely his own while he was on the stage. The surging guitars and synthesizers were fierce, but his energy kept egging them on to do even more. The push and pull between vocalist and band created a thrilling environment to see one of the city’s most compelling acts.
