Show Preview: Bumbershoot, Day 3 w/Myon & Shane 54, Johnny Monsoon & More – Monday, September 1st

Bumbershoot‘s final day offers an intriguing collection of bands from countries such as Morocco and Hungary, plus additional shows by comedians. It’s a good thing the comedians do repeat performances, as the comedy stages are always enormously popular. Prepare to laugh and dance on Monday.

12:30Gold & Youth @ the End Zone Stage

Canadians Gold & Youth released their debut album, Beyond Wildnerness, last year. From what I have heard, this is my kind of music: synth, dark vocals from male and female vocalists, and just moody as hell. After a June show at Neumos, they return to Seattle for Bumbershoot!

1:15Hoba Hoba Spirit @ the Fisher Green Stage

As far as I have seen, Hoba Hoba Spirit seem to be the only band from Morocco on Bumbershoot’s lineup. I mean, I wouldn’t expect many bands from Morocco, and if you’re at all curious about that country, why not check these guys out? Very few people will understand the lyrics, as they’re in colloquial Arabic, but the music should get through to you.

2:15Seattle People Doing Sketch @ Leo K.

Comedy. More comedy, please! This event includes Emmett Montgomery, Love Snack and others. Not sure what will happen, but will be fun and funny.

8:45Johnny Monsoon @ the Pavilion Stage

Trance DJ Johnny Monsoon will definitely be one of the day’s highlights. He’s a talented and impressive DJ, and I think it will be really cool to see him trance an audience the fuck out.

9:30Myon & Shane 54 @ the Pavilion Stage

Continuing your stay at the Pavilion Stage, which is (to me anyway, and I hope to others) an incredibly welcome addition to Bumbershoot scheduling, enjoy Myon & Shane 54. The Hungarian duo, who are DJs and producers, will close out the Pavilion Stage’s lineup.
