A busy, busy weekend schedule

July 9th, 2008 by travis hay

I’ve got a busy, busy weekend schedule planned filled to the brim with tons of music. Here is what I’ll be doing and where I’ll be doing it this weekend:

Friday
Stevie Wonder
White River Amphitheatre

When you have a chance to see a legend perform live you do it. So when I was given the chance to see Stevie Wonder I just said “yes please.” I expect to be dancing in my seat for the entire performance.

Saturday
SP 20
Marymoor Park
Gutter Twins and Brothers of the Sonic Cloth (feat. Tad Doyle of TAD)
Showbox at the Market

I’ll be spending the day in the sun (hopefully) soaking up rays while rocking out to Mudhoney, Flight of the Conchords, Seaweed, Pissed Jeans, Helio Sequence and a slew of other great Sub Pop bands in celebration of my favorite record label’s 20th birthday. Then after a long day in the sun I will be spending some time indoors having my ears blown off by Brothers of the Sonic Cloth and then being darkly soothed by the sounds of the Gutter Twins.

Sunday
SP 20
Marymoor Park

More birthday festivities in the park. This time Green River, Wolf Eyes, The Ruby Suns, Beachwood Sparks and others will be on hand. It’s going to be a great capper to a music-filled weekend.

So that’s where you can find me this weekend. If you’ll be at any of those show be sure to say hello if you spot me. I enjoy meeting readers. You can expect to read all about my musical exploits from the weekend here at Spin the Black Circle on Wednesday of next week.

If you keep your browsers peeled here throughout the summer you’ll also get to read about more of my musical adventures, including trips to the Cap. Hill Block Party, Radiohead, Bumbershoot, Warped Tour and quite a few more shows that are on my horizon.
