Went yesterday… had a great time, loved it. I particularly loved the Mad Max, bicycle-powered theme park rides. Tear out the Fun Forest, Seattle Center, and give the space to the geniuses behind Cyclecide, please.
Caught Schoolyard Heroes at Memorial Stadium—we wanted to see Panic at the Disco, but couldn’t hold out until 10 PM (yes, yes: complete pussies). And you know what? If One Reel needs Memorial Stadium to make Bumbershoot possible, we ought to keep Memorial Stadium. Want more green space at Seattle Center? Tear out the Center House and Key Arena and that place where the Seattle Reign used to play. Bumbershoot is just too good, and too important, a cultural event to risk screwing up. We ought to err on the side of not fucking up Bumbershoot and keep Memorial Stadium and lose some of the other crap.
More Bumbershoot coverage over on LineOut.
