Bumbershoot 2011 Line-up – Seattle’s Art and & Music Festival

The fine folks organizing Seattle’s Bumbershoot Festival thought it would be cute to reveal one act per day beginning in May.  I wasn’t that amused, especially since I’m really feeling my age and said, “Whoooo??” to damn-near (99%) of the acts.  So, I just waited until the entire line-up was revealed.

Today’s Song of the Day – Courtney Love – “Nobody’s Daughter” by Hole

Atta girl, Court.

Courtney Love played Bumbershoot in Seattle tonight with her band HOLE – and I missed it. I’m bummed, but I can tell I’m getting old when I don’t have the energy to stand for 6 hours (at least) in the cold, damp evening at Memorial Stadium underneath the Space Needle.

Memorial Stadium - Mainstage at Bumbershoot

Oh, I’ve been to Bumbershoot before. I’ve seen Beck, The Black Keys, Stone Temple Pilots, and sure–it’s fun.  For awhile.  Until you feel the dark and achy chill of the evening.   I’m just too much of a biddy now to truly enjoy that dirtiness that is nighttime at Bumbershoot.  And when autumn began here in Seattle about 2 weeks ago?  In mid-August.  No. Thankyouverymuch.

I love this song…and I love Courtney. Even (especially?) with all of her Cray-Cray.
