Bumbershoot

Bumbershoot is underway. Sets on the first day of the 2013 edition of the Seattle music festival included !!!, Kendrick Lamar, Crystal Castles, Sallie Ford & The Outside Sound, Charles Bradley, Washed Out, Gary Numan and more. Some of those artists also stopped by the Toyota Soundwave tent where our hosts Dave Hill and Billy Jones are holding things down as the hosts of the early afternoon BrooklynVegan presentation each day.

Gary Numan, who is touring in support of a new album, chatted with Dave and Billy about living in LA now, not liking Halloween, his kids, his appearance on Mighty Boosh and more before also DJing for a bit during the Purevolume-curated portion of the day.
Sallie Ford and her band The Outside Sound stopped by to rock out for a few songs in our intimate setting to lucky fans. Comedian Todd Barry, who is also touring and performing multiple times at the Seattle fest, chatted with Dave and Billy for a bit even if he wasn't 100% sure why he agreed to do it. And we closed our portion of Saturday down with a special interview with Washed Out's Ernest Greene who also came back to the tent to DJ later in the day. When no guests were on stage, Ernest told us about his new record, touring, going from playing bedrooms to playing large festivals, his wife who is also is in his band on tour with him, how when he opened for the Shins in Portland people didn't know him until he played the Portlandia theme song, and how both Big Boi and Elton John recorded in the same studio with him and his hope that maybe he can collaborate with both one day. Dave Hill, a musician himself (who has a new album coming out Tuesday!), took acoustic requests on guitar. Pictures from the whole Soundwave day are in this post.

Today (Sunday), we're doing a special three hour segment on the Soundwave stage in honor of Barsuk Records' 15th anniversary. Check out our full schedule HERE, and more pictures below...

Here in my car
I can wear my toupee
And drink water from a box
And rock out on my MacBook
In cars

There IS a lot of great new music being made today! But many people aren't used to looking for it! There was a time when radio was a great source for new music, and it was handed to you on a silver platter! Today, radio & record companies have stopped promoting good music, and instead found it easier to manufacture the trash that is today's pop music. And it gives the impression to the casual listener that the good stuff is gone. People have to learn to find new sources, rather than MTV or radio
