I have to admit I miss being in the Pacific West Coast. Bumbershoot was a concert experience I miss. I love the musical talent, the artists that hang out, food and people galore. If that's not enough, there are movies, movies and movies! The whole event is an experience to behold.
So... if you're in and about the Emerald City (specifically the Seattle Center) around the first to third of September, join in the festivities!
For more information, check out the Bumbershoot's myspace page. If the lineup doesn't get you, consider yourself outdated.
