Great music, great people, great (local) beers, beautiful weather...anything else I'm missing? Yep, Bumbershoot never really disappoints. Year after year I go with pretty muted expectations (especially after the corporate takeover), and thoroughly enjoy the hell out of it. Pick a beer garden and just let the music come to me. Smoke a fatty, wander the grounds with ears wide open, ready to hop into a crowd if something catches my attention. I always find something new and amazing I've never heard, and the journey is 99% the fun anyways.
I love 3 day weekends. I love Seattle in September. I love Bumbershoot.
Well, Bumbershoot just announced more additions to their lineup and I'm sold once again. I was a little weary with the announcement of Sheryl Crow and Katy Perry, but they just dropped some serious heat with this latest group of artists (and plenty of local flavor!). Here are just a few of the groups I am geeked about peeping:
De La Soul / Raphael Saadiq (!!!!!!!!) / Roy Ayers / Swollen Members / Kasabian / Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears / Janelle Monae (!!!!!!) / The Knux / The New Mastersounds (!!!!!!) / MSTRKRAFT / Reggie Watts / Wale ft. UCB / DJ Spooky / Keller Williams / Michael Franti
and the list of locals is fucking stellar:
Common Market / Dyno Jamz / Dyme Def / Handful of Luvin' / D. Black / Spaceman / Natalie Portman's Shaved Head / Macklemore / Reggie Watts / Truckasaurus
And there is still another round of acts to be announced. Get your tickets HERE.
See you in the Fisher Green beer garden.

Home of the Lydon Johnson Space Center and Mission Control, Houston is a major center for the US's Space program. These sneakers build upon that theme and have a super dope moon rock shine to them, along with a speckled sole and a planetary ring around the NIKE on the heal.
The Nike Big Nike Low Houston “Space City” is expected to release on June 16, 2009 at selected House of Hoops locations.

This weekend marks the 10 year anniversary of one of Seattle's dopest and most respected crews...Massive Monkees. They will be getting down in Fremont tomorrow at EVO for the 10 year anniversary party iteslf, and then uprocking their way to Nectar 2 blocks down the road for the after party featuring DJ Crazy Legs of the Rocksteady Crew and Bruce Illest (performing the cult classic 'Great Adventures of Bruce Illest!). So get your ass down to Fremont tomorrow and enjoy some good old fashioned BREAKBEATS and serious b-boy madness.

That said, the Air Griffey Max is looking to be a fine addition to the collection. They just dropped the new royal blue colorway. Sure they are out there...but if I were to get JR to sign them? I wouldn't ever put them on my feet.

New exclusive Bapes X Aoyama. This is a combination of the gold and silver color ways A Bathing Ape dropped earlier this month. It appears that this is going to be limited to a Hong Kong release. Good thing too, 'cause these things are too loud for even me, and it would drive me nuts to have to stand next to someone who could pull em off.

What do I mean by ‘that time’ you ask? It’s time for another amazing funk show in this wonderful city we all call home. If you have read anything I have posted over the last few months, you would be fully aware that I am a connoisseur of all things soulful and a lover of funkiness in all its forms (so you should listen to me!).
Well, I will be rocking the eff out at Neumos this Saturday to a group by the name of Soulive. Soulive is an incredibly dope funk outfit out of upstate New York that has been cranking out feel good jams for a hot minute. Their previous albums are all worth at least a spin or two, and their hip hop infuzed remix album is a work of genre-bending art. They are currently touring in support of their latest effort titled Up Here and it is exactly what I expected…very funky. It’s a little more rough around the edges than some of their previous efforts and this is a great thing. You can almost picture them rocking out in a basement while recording and the hints of grime in the tracks make it a little more authentic and organic. For example: the slightly distorted bass and guitar riffs, along side some super fresh horns, make the cut Backwards Jack sound like a quality bootleg recording at a concert/basement party rather than a fully spit shined studio recording. All qualities of which I am a fan.

A 3-1 victory over Arsenal yesteday put the Devils in the Champions League final for a second Consectutive year. This is a club not to be taken lightly. As I'm typing this Chelsea Midfeilder Michael Essien scored a Nineth minute goal to take the lead against Barcelona in the second leg of their evenly drawn matchup. If Chelsea can hold on, we will be looking at a rematch of last year's Champions Leaugue final. The Premeirship is killing it right now, and the Devils are killing the Premiership.
I can't help but think that putting these two girls' birthdays so close together is like god playing a cruel trick on us. Anyways CSaB wants to wish two very happy birthdays to two of its favorites. So if Salts didn't get you last night, and Mel doesn't get you tomorrow I'll see you at the annual Dirty Salty Mess at Del Ray on Friday.

Come out and support the start of something new on the Hill! We are stoked about Capitol Club and know that the vibe will be crackin with the deck and good folks like you in attendance.
dj100proof // DJ Swervewon // DJ Sean Cee
414 E Pine St. NO COVER. 9:30-2:00
Super dumb props to Dyme Def on their new EP release and this stellar video. Also recognition needs to be handed out to Bean One for such a neck-spasm inducing slapper.
Pomz, Swerve and I were at this shoot (drinking warm J&B out of a plastic cup) and did shoot some cameos, but strangely enough two white hip hop nerds and a Dominican didn't make it into the final cut...
Its now officially called the Toro Bravo pack, which takes its name from the Toro Bravo, a special breed of bull bred for the Running of the Bulls in Pamplona, Spain.
This is a damn near flawless retro release and I wish I had the dough to cop.
