A lot happened at Bumbershoot this weekend, and as usual Line Out was all over it:
Throw Me The Statue debuted a new song.
Grynch held down the Fisher Green stage.
The Walkmen and Estelle underwhelmed, competently.
Man Man made a new fan (fan) out of me; Saul Williams made Black Nationalists out of a bunch of white folks.
Darando made up some new words for old desires.
!!! threw a rave on the Fisher Green.
TI brought heat, summoned smoke, and blew the crowd away.
Lee “Scratch” Perry put the “dub” in dubious mental health.
Upright Citizen’s Brigade and Human Giant begged the question, Is facebook is too edgy for improv comdey?
The Weakerthans renewed my faith in having my faith renewed.
These Arms Are Snakes and Brother Ali looked great, sounded like a “big bassy fart.”
The Saturday Knights cooked a hot rock out out of the Fleet Foxes “White Winter Hymnal.”
The Black Keys struggled with the size of Memorial Stadium.
Stone Temple Pilots reminded me how much I hated every minute of my life in 1993.
Monotonix rocked too hard, got shut down after 14 mintues.
Battles bent the Space Needle to their own vision of the future; Dan Deacon passed out the bug juice.
Two Gallants gallantly entertained on an afternoon lawn.
Superchunk just ruled.
Black Eyes and Neckties played KEXP and no one got hurt.
Death Cab For Cutie drove me home.
Flatstock moved Megan Seling.
And that’s just what we have so far…
