Another Bumbershoot is history. And among other things that means I have more time to come up with Weekly Weigh-In surveys. Ones that aren’t as silly as that last on about Ice Cube’s gangstaism, even. Yaaaaay!
And this week, I wanna hear from everyone who made the trip north for the big Bumberevent. Click here to cast your vote for which main stage act was best at Bumbershoot 2008.
Del the Funky Homosapien was a hit over on the Fisher Green stage with a set that included some of the songs he recorded with Deltron and Gorillaz along with his solo material.
Bay Area singer-songwriter John Vanderslice (right) delivered one of my favorite performances of Bumbershoot ’08. “Tablespoon of Coedine” is a pretty mellow number on last year’s Sept. 11-themed “Emerald City” album, but it reached some seriously rockin’ crescendo’s in the live setting. “They Won’t Let Me Run” and “Kookabura” also provided moving highlights of that set.
