Here’s the tweet from Bumbershoot inviting Seattleites to come out to Bumbershoot by the Space Needle. It’s a beautiful end-of-summer day here in Seattle.

Here’s a brochure I picked up some time ago. I like the graphics. Some items are new-ish but already retro : that iPod model on the left. I suppose there will always be guitars to make music with right? and a mike to sing into for the fans.

It’s Bumbershoot weekend, Seattle’s annual music festival by the Space Needle. I have to confess that I am not soo into the music scene and the headliners that include Heart, Death Cab for Cutie, MGMT and Bassnectar are all unfamiliar to me.  Does that mean I should listen to more music? Broaden my horizons? The thing with live music is : it’s never quite the same as its recorded version that you have come to love, the one on your boombox or iPhone or iPad.  But yes, it’s nice to see the band of humans that actually make the music, make it for real up there on the stage – and share the experience with a crowd of fans .. right?
