The third, and final, day of Bumbershoot 2015 brings the super Bassnectar and a solid lineup of local artists. The local bands (and ones I always champion!!) Sisters, Bread & Butter and Kris Orlowski get chances for great exposure on the Rhapsody and Starbucks stages. See as many as possible, and be happy.
2:00 @ Rhapsody Stage
Details: Sisters, Seattle (via Florida) pair Emily Westman and Andrew Vait, clinched an early but important slot this year.
Why You Want to See Them: The transplants and former music students, who have also played Sasquatch! Music Festival and Capitol Hill Block Party, play some beautiful pop music.
3:00 @ Rhapsody Stage
Bread & Butter
Details: Classic rock anyone? For sure.
Why You Want to See Them: I had nothing to do with getting this Seattle band, or any other, a slot at Bumbershoot, but I really love this band and am proud they’re making their Bumbershoot debut. I put their music in the category of music you would actually listen to.
4:30 @ Starbucks Stage
Details: Kris Orlowski will have a band with him – the photo of just Orlowski is a little misleading. But hey, it’s an awesome photograph and who else has had a photo taken with an owl plus two additional birds of prey? Right? It’s awesome.
Why You Want to See Them: The singer-songwriter has a massive voice to go with his wonderful music. Why do you need more? You just don’t.
10:00 @ KeyArena
Details: A damn genius producer and DJ.
Why You Want to See Him: I still imagine a little symbol of sound ingesting nectar when I hear about Bassnectar, but that’s my problem. Bassnectar will break KeyArena apart with his relentless sound, atmosphere and excitement.
