Bumbershoot 2009 sights and sounds...

I know it's taken some time for me to get this stuff up, oh well, it's the thought that counts!Just wanted to bring y'all some pictures and video from Bumbershoot. Minus the rain, it was a beautiful weekend.

U-N-I absolutely killed the stage, and nearly themselves while stage diving. Shout out to DJ Hyphen on the ones and twos back there. We see you homey!

Before we closed out the night with a little De La Soul, can't think of a better way to do it, there was some comedy and a little Mayer Hawthorne.

Day two was more of the same. Dyme Def brought a joint of their forthcoming EP "The Sextape" and fuck if I forgot the name of it. Something new and different from the brothaaas. They came out backed by Big World Breaks...

and brought the always lovely Choklate out to rock Suns Out and Grown Folk off her new album "To Whom It May Concern"...

GodSpeed took the stage with BWB as well. I just got hip to these dudes a couple weeks back and I gotta say, so far, I'm feelin them.

Cruised over to the EMP for a little Spaceman and D.Black. Yo, if you don't have that new D. Black "Ali'Yah" yet...go cop it. So nice...

That was about all I got of day two...Common Market put on an artistic spectacle and we didn't make it to see Swollen Members. Closed out the day with some Raphael Saadiq which was a nice way to cool down.

Day three started off with a bang as Macklemore took the Fisher-Green Stage, in his "hella schmedium jacket", and made it his own with the help of Grynch and Xperience along for the ride.

The real Bang Bang took place when we headed over to the Mainstage for a visit from The Knux. Dudes went hard...pause.

Caught a little more comedy by Aziz Ansari, Sarah Silverman, The Red Wine Boys and others. Missed Champagne Champagne, caught a little Janelle Monae and closed it out with Modest Mouse. All in all, despite the rain, it was a good weekend.
