Bumbershoot 2012 / by Rhys Logan

Chances are, if you're into music, you know about the Northwest.  Knowing about music in the Northwest, will eventually lead you to the magical mystical festival known as Bumbershoot;  the place where musicians from every part of the only planet we know to support life gather for three days and nights of ridiculous tunes, dance parties that will change your life, and performances that will live on to become legend, told and retold to those who were unfortunate enough to miss them.  

The tough and talented Kristina Valencia of Findyourfav.com, has wholly taken on one of her roles in life as the messenger of epic, bringing you news, info and interviews of your favorite musicians out there and even had room to spare a credential for me to experience some of the most musical and amazing days of life.  So check it out, for your own sake. 

Here's to moshing, crowd surfing, ear plugs, head bobbing, dancing like you're legs are made of hammer pants and listening.  They're all things we could always use more of.

and thanks for looking!
