The (F)unofficial Bumbershoot Kickoff Party feat. Redwood Plan, Born Anchors, Grynch and Victor ShadeSunday, August 9th, 2009
I’ve hinted about it and you’ve probably read about it on other blogs (like this one, this one or maybe this one) or perhaps you received the Facebook invite but now, just in case you haven’t heard the news about what’s sure to be a memorable night, I am making it 100 percent official and legit by dropping the news here: Ear Candy is having itself a Bumbershoot party Sept. 4 at the High Dive. For this show I was very fortunate to book four of my favorite local acts, all of which I know you’ll enjoy if you aren’t listening to them already (but you really should be since I’ve been blogging about them for quite some while now).
The bill has some of the best Seattle talent that was mistakenly overlooked by the Bumbershoot booking crew, including two of the best up-and-coming bands in Seattle with retro-90s alt-rockers Born Anchors and the dance-your-ass-off pop-rockers in The Redwood Plan. Also at the show, The King of Ballard, Grynch, will extend his reign southeast to Fremont. Headlining the night will be the Seattle debut of Victor Shade who will be performing a set you won’t want to miss. Trust me.
Expect to hear more about the show soon and look for ticket giveaways and interviews with some of the acts of the bill. See you on Sept. 4!
