Prom Night with Allen Stone & Bumbershoot Lineup Announcement @ the Crocodile, 5/2
Article & Photos by Abby Williamson
The lineup for this year’s Bumbershoot is now live! Local favorite Allen Stone helped bring in the announcement as part of a two-night prom celebration at the Crocodile on May 2nd and May 3rd. You can check out some photos from the first night’s festivities, but now. . . the lineup.
Headlined by Seattle legends Heart, as well as Death Cab for Cutie (specifically playing Transatlanticism), Bumbershoot has pulled out all the stops this year with Jason Bonham, Bassnectar, MGMT, Matt & Kim, Kendrick Lamarr, Gary Numan, fun., Tegan and Sara, and Deerhunter. When the announcement video played, I honestly didn’t see any disappointments.
To my excitement, among the huge stars, some familiar local names showed up as well – Allen Stone, Kris Orlowski, Ivan and Alyosha, Hot Bodies in Motion, St. Paul de Vence, The Physics, and Kithkin.
