bumbershoot looks pretty decent. and i get to see sally timms :) not quite as cool as when vic chesnutt and victoria williams played, but hey...still. and george clinton finally...plus kristin hersh finally, since i missed her three years ago because i was waiting in memorial stadium to see david byrne. others include modest mouse[of course :)], ani [show #4 and still no cds *g*] and tracy chapman. some good stuff goin on...also some other bands i keep hearing about from people but havent gotten a chance to check out yet like death cab for cutie and quasi.
