See you at the ’Shoot !!

If you’re over at Bumbershoot today, look me up, or if you can’t be there, check us out at

Here’s where I’m (tentatively) planning to be today:

11:45 a.m., Nick Vigarino on the Mural Stage, followed by Vicci Martinez; might wander away for a while to check out Throw Me The Statue (12:30, Broad St.) or see what Neko‘s up to (1 p.m., Mainstage)

Most of the afternoon will be wanderin’ around time. If you see me, say hi. I’ll be the guy who’s probably fumbling with a cell phone (my first one; the best phone $10 can buy).

4:45 p.m., back at the Mural for Joe Bonamassa, who I’ve heard lots about; he might have to pull me away from Thao with the Get Down Stay Down (4 p.m., Broad St.), though.

5:45 p.m., The Walkmen at Broad St.

(Noticing a trend, here? Mural and Broad Street are the alternative-to-the-Mainstage places to be today).

6 p.m. (If The Walkmen bite), “Reefer Madness: The Musical” in the Center House Theatre. This’ll be especially high-priority if (shudder) it’s raining, since it’s inside.

7:30 p.m., torn between Band of Horses (Mainstage, the opener for Beck) and Man Man (where else? Broad St.)

8:30 p.m., to the Bagley Wright for a little Burlesque a la “Apocalypse in Coney Island,” which sounds just goony enough to be fun, though. If it’s a nice evening, though, might be good to stay outside for Tim Finn (Northwest Court).

However …

This could be a leave-early night, in order to make it back to Port Orchard in time to see Goldy McJohn & Friendz at Moondogs, Too. Goldy’s the keyboardist from the seminal hippie-biker band Steppenwolf, and has one of the most unique, gritty, groovy organ styles ever. He’s on at 9 p.m. or thereabout, with a band that sounds kickass.

See you one place or the other, I hope.

More later. — MM
