Sunny Day Real Estate to reunite, play Bumbershoot?


Remember a few weeks back when Ear Candy set the Internets ablaze with the rumor of a Sunny Day Real Estate reunion?

Well, mark your calendars for Labor Day Weekend Sunny Day Real Estate fans because that’s when you’re going to get a Sunny Day Real Estate reunion in Seattle. Or at least that’s when the Internet told me a Sunny Day Real Estate reunion will be happening in Seattle.

For all you observant types out there, yes, that is Bumbershoot weekend, which means Sunny Day Real Estate will be playing this year’s Bumbershoot.

How does Ear Candy know this? Well, nothing official from either the band or Bumbershoot has been released stating this is true, so take it for what it’s worth. But trust me, I’m not making this up.

On Twitter, KEXP DJ Marco Collins posted the following: Sunny Day Real Estate @ Bumbershoot? Fact or fiction?

UPDATE: Marco has removed the post from his Twitter page

I consider Marco a credible source. And while Marco did put question marks after his statements, he probably wouldn’t have gone on Twitter and raised the possibility of SDRE playing Bumbershoot if there wasn’t some ounce of truth behind it.

Or, maybe Marco is just screwing with everyone. Who knows?

But he was correct about the Capitol Hill Block Party headliners and he was the person who originally tipped everyone about SDRE getting back together, practicing and prepping for a tour. I think that gives him some credibility as a source.

So, is this rumor true? You decide. But if I were you I would go ahead and buy your advance Bumbershoot tickets now.
