Bumbershoot 2009 :: Music Lineup Guide

Three Colours' Music Guide to Bumbershoot 2009

While there's plenty of fantastic shows this year in Bumbershoot's lineup (too many to catch), here's a guide that should hopefully steer attendees to the best musical acts of the festival. I think this is probably the strongest lineup in years, and there's bound to be some bands that I'm neglecting to put in there, but that's the magic of Bumbershoot - the most memorable acts are the ones you happen to stumble upon while wander the Seattle Center. My biggest complaint this year, however, is the overlapping shows of Telekinsis and Elvis Perkins in Dearland. Oh well, if I hustle I can probably catch most of both shows.
