Anni Rossi is playing at the Tractor tonight. I hate that I am posting this so late in the day but wanted to let you know. I saw her open for Noah and the Whale a while ago and I took to her. And don’t forget, she’s playing a viola. Not a violin.
For Bumbershoot on Sunday, September 6th I recommend spending most of the day in the EMP. This is again with the purpose of putting together a schedule you could actually stick to and catch the entire set from these bands. EMP always holds great local bands and Sunday they have:
Black Whales @ 2:00, EMP
I knew that whales make beautiful music but who knew whales were this foxy? This band is fantastic. Will look and sound very sharp in this venue for sure.

Romance @ 5:00, EMP
I have followed this band from, I believe, the very beginning – or very near to it. I am looking forward to seeing them at EMP as they were stunning when I saw them there a couple years back.

Sleepy Eyes Of Death @ 6:30, EMP
One of the band members does magic and light. Their music often reminds me of the soundtrack to A Clockwork Orange. This is a very good thing.

Holy Fuck @ 7:45, Broad Street Stage
Finally you can go outside for some electronica from Canada. Should be a dramatic show under the Space Needle.
Music has about 5 seconds to get your attention, right? Here’s what I am especially looking forward to checking out at Bumbershoot on Saturday and if you follow this schedule you can catch all these bands. . . Sunday & Monday to follow.
Saturday, September 5th:
Hotels @ 2:00, EMP
I caught this local band earlier this year and they are a complete package of perfection.
