Preview: Timber! Outdoor Music Festival, Fri. 7/12 & Sat. 7/13

Timber! Outdoor Music Festival – Fri. 7/12 & Sat. 7/13

Wow, so apologies I didn’t get this preview up to let you know about Timber! Outdoor Music Festival earlier. While I didn’t alert you to Thursday’s lineup, I have some ideas for Friday and Saturday.

Kelly Finnigan, a soul singer from Los Angeles has a Main Stage slot on Friday, as do Stephanie Anne Johnson and the Highdogs. Johnson was a finalist on The Voice. You could also celebrate Seattle’s kilcid band‘s album release while catching their set at 2 pm (also on Main Stage). Timber’s Campfire Stage hosts the beautiful combination of Mark Lanegan and the Passenger String Quartet.

On Saturday, garage rockers Thee Oh Sees headline the evening on Main Stage. The Californian quintet are absolutely well known for their live shows. Among other Main Stage acts, there’s also even more variety from Baja Boy (indie), All Star Opera (hip-hop) and Chris Acker and the Growing Boys (country).

And it feels great to say this: ticket options are thoughtfully priced. You can also get camping tickets, which would be worth it. There are many activities going on too, from kayaking to tree climbing to meditation. Big thanks to Artist for arranging Timber!

PS: There will be Midnight Secret Shows. Follow Timber’s Twitter & Facebook for updates.

French musician French Kiwi Juice, abbreviated as FKJ, visited the Showbox in April. Originating in Tours, France, under the given name of Vincent Fenton, FKJ released his self-titled debut in 2017. This year was also a big one for him, as he has a new single out called “Leave My Home,” and he got married in March. Plus, FKJ should have a new album very soon. Thanks to Casey Brevig for getting photos of FKJ’s first of two sold-out Seattle dates.
