Bumbershoot 2009: The audible review

Like most of Seattle’s music media I spent Labor Day weekend at Seattle Center for Bumbershoot 2009 and as always it was a killer festival with some pretty memorable moments. In the coming days you can expect to see lots and lots of photos and some words from the weekend. On the 150-mile car ride home my buddy Brent and I, along with very special guest Mrs. Ear Candy (aka my wife), recorded a podcast containing our thoughts about Bumbershoot and Ear Candy’s (F)unofficial Bumbershoot Kickoff show. Give it a listen below and look for tons more Bumbershoot coverage in the coming days.

Candy Cast Bumbershoot Review by ear_candy

Podcast: Flaming Lips and Dead Weather concert reviews, a review of Pearl Jam’s Backspacer and more

I’ve returned to the podcastophere with the sixth installment ofthe Candy Cast. This time around Ear Candy’s Brent and I talked about some great upcoming local releases in The Maldives and Built To Spill (we even played snippets of songs from both albums), discussed the awesomeness of Jack White, did some wishful thinking about Them Crooked Vultures show and I share my non-Teletubby experience at Marymoor Park for The Flaming Lips.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a Candy Cast if we didn’t talk about the upcoming release of Pearl Jam’s "Backspacer," so we’ve got an actual review of Backspacer too.

I’ll be writing some words about the Flaming Lips concert and sharing some great photos from the show soon (pics that are much better than the one to the left and much better than my photo set from the show) but if you want to hear the full story about the emotional craziness that was my day at The Flaming Lips concert (including finding out what made me tear up at the end of the show) click here to give a listen to the latest Candy Cast. You’ll get all the other aformentioned goodies too, but really, as is always the case with most everything involving The Flaming Lips, Wayne Coyne and Co. steal the show.

Aerosmith vs. ZZ Top, Wilco, Flaming Lips & reader interactivity on the latest podcast
