Live Review: Jay Electronica @ Bumbershoot 9/5

Sunday 5.45pm Fisher Green Stage It’s funny that the widely-hailed hip hop visionary and emcee’s emcee Jay Electronica is credited for revolutionizing rap music by being best known for completely removing one of the central ingredients of rap music: the beat. Jay’s penchant for beatless spoken word/rap poetry is clear during his Bumbershoot set; almostRead more...

Bumbershoot Photos from Sunday 9/5/10

Sunday! Sunday! Sunday! Wowzers, there were a lot of bands at Bumbershoot at the Seattle Center on day two. We have some great images here from a little Courtney Love to a lot of Weezer.

Live Review: JEFF The Brotherhood @ Bumbershoot 9/6

Monday 1.15pm Center Square Stage Nashville, Tennessee’s finest psychedelic garage rock double act JEFF (all caps no less!) The Brotherhood (they’re literally brothers) begin their Bumbershoot set with electronic pulses arpeggiating up and down in tone faster and faster and eventually settling into a melody and rhythm to which lead singer and guitarist Jake OrrallRead more...

Live Review: Fences @ Bumbershoot 9/5

Sunday 6.45pm EMP Sky Church The quote “Forever Bummed” on Fences’ MySpace page may give you some clue as to what to expect from local singer-songwriter Chris Mansfield and his musical leanings. His songs probably aren’t going to be used to sell candy or chocolate milk anytime soon; instead they’re jaded, melancholy, intensely personal affairs.Read more...

Live Review: Weezer @ Bumbershoot 9/5

Sure, Weezer may have had their fair share of detractors in recent years, citing the band’s output of late as being chart-chasing, unimaginative, no-brainer rock, but let’s be honest, Weezer songs were never exactly Shakespeare in the first place. There’s not a whole lot of difference between singing about hash pipes or living in BeverlyRead more...

Live Review: Delorean @ Bumbershoot 9/5

Sunday 7.30pm Broad Street Stage Delorean have been peddling their time-traveling (hey!) brand of live dancey synthy handclappy breakbeat since 2001. There was absolutely no reason to use the adjective ‘time-traveling’ in the previous sentence, I just wanted to get at least one Back To The Future reference out of the way early.
