Getting deep, and midway, through our Bumbershoot photo coverage with material from Simon Krane. New Yorkers Sofi Tukker and the Skins lead this post, while we’re also giving some love to Pacific Northwest acts Tacocat, Shelby Earl and Joseph. This is one of the things that makes Bumbershoot so awesome: in one day you can catch bands from both American coasts, as well as an Australian group, Middle Kids! Enjoy these shots of everyone outside, when we could go outside and be kind of warm in Seattle.
Song: “Passenger Side (Grizfolk Remix)”
Why You Want to Listen: It’s a song about driving. . . kind of. . . and about nostalgic good times in cars while driving. That’s most likely pretty appealing, right? And there’s some lost love. And Vegas. Smallpools’ “Passenger Side” is their latest single, and here it is, remixed by Grizfolk.
Ah yes, the celebration of Bumbershoot 2017 continues with day 2 coverage by Kirk Stauffer. Seattle’s Madeline Kenney, who’s now living in Oakland CA, played the Fisher Green Stage. Kenney’s a self-described baker, artist, cartoon enthusiast in addition to being a great musician. If you’re in Seattle and you missed her set, she’ll be at the Timbre Room on October 20th. We’re also glad to share photos of Seattle artists Tacocat and Shelby Earl, always a couple of our favorites. Plus, we’ve got more national touring bands such as Lorde (!!!), singer/violinist Saint Claire,
Dreamers, Middle Kids, Con Brio and a band of sisters named Joseph.
Want some more photos of Bumbershoot’s first day? We’ve got that for you. This time, photographer Simon Krane captured shots of Seattle’s J GRGRY, Los Angeles duo Deap Vally (nope, those are not typos; they spell like that), and a Florida rapper named Flo Rida. You probably know him. All those people dancing on stage with him sure look like they’re having fun. Special note on J GRGRY: congratulations on your spot on this year’s Deck the Hall Ball Lineup!
We’ll be sharing photos by Kirk Stauffer and Simon Krane, who covered this year’s Bumbershoot. Get ready, photos are coming at you fast (if a little late, but that’s the editor’s fault, not the awesome photographers). Apologies on that. Friday, day 1 included a fabulous variety of artists from Detroit rapper Big Sean to pop rock Foster The People to funk rock Chicano Batman and all the way to soul singer Jorja Smith. Enjoy those acts, and loads more!
