Picking up where I left off on Bumbershoot’s Sunday mega schedule, I’ve got more great electronic music and country music. . . and. . . Phoenix, whom I think a huge portion of Sunday’s audience will clamor to see. If you cannot get in, since they’re playing outside, you can hang around as close as possible to listen.
Show Preview:Bumbershoot – Sunday, September 2nd – Part 1 ~Dagmar
The final day of Bumbershoot has a huge lineup of female performers. So many, in fact, I split the day’s highlights into two. Part one, exclusively female, includes artists from Kailee Morgue to Olivia O’Brien. There are some hard choices to make on this midafternoon schedule.
Her song “Medusa” is based on the mythological figure, Medusa, who Morgue explains, “. . . was cursed with snakes for hair and a hideous face over something that wasn’t her fault. It’s actually a tragic story, but people perceive her as a monster. So, she takes on the leadership role of the ‘broken’ in the song.”
She’s interested in Wicca.
She provided the vocals to Norwegian artist Bearson’s “Go To Sleep.”
Day two of Bumbershoot is tomorrow, Saturday September 1st. What a great way to begin a whole new month. As on Friday’s schedule, I’m highlighting a lot of electronic music. This year has yet another excellent lineup in that genre, my favorite.
Bumbershoot 2018 has arrived! Loads of great music and all sorts of fun await at the Seattle Center, where the weather should be mellow and not raining. While you can build your own Bumbershoot schedule here, I’ve gone through the schedules for all three Bumbershoot days and made some picks. Keep checking, as I’ll have previews for Saturday and Sunday coming up.
Jack Beats is actually a London-based pair of DJs.
They’re Beni G (the British Ben Giffin) and Plus One (the Scottish Niall Dailly).
Dailly said, in, OWSLA, “If a year ago someone had said our music would come out on a major label across the world I’d have fallen over laughing,. . . We began life as an underground crew making tunes for Sunday night hardcore clubbers.”
Halestorm, fronted by guitarist Lzzy Hale, recently headlined at the WaMu Theater. Backed by Joe Hottinger (guitar), Josh Smith (bass), and brother Arejay Hale (drums), the band is on the road with two other female-fronted groups – In This Moment (Maria Brink) and New Years Day (Ash Costello).
