Show Preview: Bumbershoot – Day 2, Sun. 9/1 w/ Katie Kate, the Zombies, the Animals & More

Puppets, zombies and animals come to the fore in Sunday’s Bumbershoot schedule. While a Thriller Flashmob, Zombie Attack & Zombie Walk hit each day of the festival, bands the Animals and the Zombies play the Starbucks Stage on Sunday. At least two shows will have puppets, plus the addition of Katie Kate makes this an even finer day.

Kithkin @ TuneIn Stage

Groovy sounding Kithkin, a quartet from Seattle, get an early start to the festival with an 11:45 a.m. slot. This band also has a cool website, something I always respect. Some groups neglect their sites.

Katie Kate @ TuneIn Stage

Katie Kate makes a completely welcome Bumbershoot return – she appeared at last year’s Bumbershoot – and will get the audience members moving. They won’t be able to help it.

Eric Burdon & the Animals @ the Starbucks Stage

Greats from Northern England, the Animals, will perform some legitimate rhythm and blues. Burdon’s distinctive voice is one of rock’s most recognizable sounds.

BRONCHO @ Plaza Stage

Oklahoma’s BRONCHO is another band I recommend you check out. Call it garage rock, that’s fine. It’s good stuff.

The Zombies @ Starbucks Stage

The second great English band of the day, the Zombies, will have an evening slot on the Starbucks Stage. The Zombies should do “She’s Not There.” I love that song.
