Is it really still three months away?

The 2007 Bumbershoot lineup is nearly finalized, with a few more great acts officially added in the past 24 hours. Highlights of the adds include Kings of Leon, Art Brut, Ted Leo and the Pharmacists, Andrew Bird, The Frames, Rodrigo y Gabriela and Tacoma's very own reunited Seaweed. That last one had scrambling today, pulling out my old 'Weed discs and reminiscing 'bout the good old days of yore.

Add these to the already great lineup, highlighted by The Shins, Gogol Bordello, Roky Erickson, Steve Earle, Lupe Fiasco and the reunited treats of Crowded House and The FRACKING Wu-Tang Clan) and you have quite a weekend. We'll have another baby in tow, so it might just be me (and Eli) taking in the action this time.

Playlist: Bumbershoot 2007 (A-Z)

Right now I'm leaning towards Sunday, with a lineup of Art Brut, Devendra Banhart, Andrew Bird, Kings of Leon and the mighty return of Seaweed. Monday is a close second, with the live prowess of both Wu-Tang Clan and The Frames, along with the rare chance to see Roky Erickson. But then again... if I've got Eli with me, it might have to be Saturday, with some of his faves like Rodrigo y Gabriela, Gogol Bordello, the Shins, and I'm sure he'll like Crowded House. Maybe I can talk my sweetie pie into letting me go all three days? Not a chance (I wouldn't leave her at home with the babies for three days in a row... what do you take me for? ;)
