I’m heading out on vacation to Northern Ireland for a week or so. Posts here will probably be slow for a good reason, instead of the usual neglect and work and gardening and biking and such.

Saw Doctors @ Bumbershoot, in the rain.

The Saw Doctors, from Monday evening at Bumbershoot. Played for 2 hours in the wind and rain putting on a very good show.

I was a little dissapointed in the offerings at bumbershoot this year: fewer stages and higher prices. On monday, I only ended up seeing 5 shows. There was a huge hole in the middle of the day that was filled with a good rain shower. Rockin Teenage Combo was fun, El Vez was quite political, and on the ‘right’ side. He had a short talk/song on erosion of liberties and what this country is supposed to be. I also enjoyed the Derailleurs and the Antibalas Afrobeat Orchestra. Both nice upbeat bands.

This post has been brought to you by the wayport sea-tac airport airport network. It’s not free, but at $7 for a day (or the two hours that I’m waiting. 5 min at checkin, 2 minutes at security. 2:30 is the time to arrive for the London flight.)
