Live at Bumbershoot 2014, Day Three: Julianna Barwick, Hurray For The Riff Raff, and Real Estate

Julianna Barwick - 5:30 p.m. If Julianna Barwick had been placed on an outdoor stage, soundbleed would have all but ravaged her performance, so it’s worth commending the Bumbershoot curators for not only booking such an experimental artist, but also putting her in a venue that she would shine in. As unpredictable as Bumbershoot’s lineupRead more...

Live at Bumbershoot 2014, Day Two: The Replacements, Mission of Burma, The Dismemberment Plan, and The Head and the Heart

The Replacements - 6:15 p.m. Twelve months ago, you could probably count the number of people who thought the Replacements would ever play another gig on two hands.

Live at Bumbershoot 2014, Day 2: San Fermin

Live at Bumbershoot 2014, Day 1: The Lonely Forest, Elvis Costello, The Both, The Afghan Whigs, and Mavis Staples

The Lonely Forest – 3:30 p.m. The Lonely Forest played its last ever show (before heading on hiatus) on a drizzly, gray Saturday afternoon to a medium-sized crowd of local fans and their hometown following from Anacortes, and it couldn’t have been any more fitting. Emotional, but never overbearing, the band certainly acknowledged that the bandRead more...
