Going to The West Seattle Summer Fest? (Mudhoney!)

I’m heading out to this year’s West Seattle Summer Festival Friday after work mainly for Mudhoney, though the rest of the evening’s lineup, including Mark Pickerel & His Praying Hands and Black Panties is certainly worth the trip. The festivities and music continue Saturday and Sunday.

I haven’t seen Mudhoney in nearly a year, since they (or No Age – who were amazing) over-rocked KEXP‘s parking lot PA system. I shouldn’t blame the bands as I don’t know what actually happened – mid-way through Mudhoney’s set, a horrible melting-plastic smell overtook those of us at the stage and the sound cut out. I fled before the situation was remedied and Mudhoney finished their set.

Are you heading out to the festival? Taking pix? Throw them in the Backbeat Seattle photo pool!
