I already typed up most of my Bumbershoot highlights for Ye Olde Metblog over the weekend. If you're interested in my hasty ramblings here are some delicious links for your web browser:

  • Friday's 826 extravaganza [#]
  • Saturday (Jamie LIdell, Roller Derby, Rogue Wave, of Montreal, Shooter Jennings, Badly Drawn Boy) [#]
  • Sunday (New Pornographers, Spoon, Nick Thune/Mary-Lynn Rajskub/Aziz Ansari, Common Market, Zero 7) [#]
  • Monday (Nouvelle Vague, Tinkle, SuttonBeresCuller, Feist, Metric) [#]

Usually, I end up camped out in the miserable Exhibition Hall for at least a couple sets or staring at the pretty lights at Sky Church. This year, the Backyard Stage took a serious turn for the awesome, both in terms of booking and backstaging. With great weather, it was nice to not be in the dark during the day.
