After exploring the schedule for Bumbershoot, a few of the artists photographers Abby Williamson and Simon Krane selected to cover on day one included Walk the Moon, Mac Demarco, the Both and Wu-Tang Clan. By the way, the big breakthrough from Cincinnati, Walk the Moon are set to release their second album with RCA in December (oh hi, present alert!), and music fans are also thrilled to see the joining of Ted Leo and Aimee Mann to form the Both. Mac DeMarco’s April Fool’s Day 2014 release, Salad Days, failed to win the Polaris Music Prize, but. . . well, whatever. Wu-Tang played their set after Elvis Costello, which was just a peculiar “pairing” at the festival.
