Bumbershoot recommendations

Bumbershoot 2008 is coming up this weekend, August 30 to September 1, and I'll be there all three days. These are my recommendations:

Saturday
  • Beehive at the Wells Fargo Stage (Northwest Court), 12 noon
  • Mono in VCF at the EMP Sky Church, 6:30 pm
  • Kinski at the EMP Sky Church, 9:30 pm

Sunday
  • Sons and Daughters at the Rockstar Stage (Broad Street), 7:45 pm
  • I also plan to see Final Fantasy at the Wells Fargo Stage, 9:15 pm, per my sister's request to "go see final fantasy after sons and daughters and tell me if he's any good for real for real."

Monday
  • Battles at the Rockstar Stage, 7:45 pm
  • I'll also be going to see Mike Doughty at the Starbucks Stage (Mural Ampitheatre), 8:45 pm

Also be on the watch for Byron Au Yong's "Kidnapping Water: Bottled Operas" performances throughout each day at various fountains in the Center.

I'll actually miss Kinski at Bumbershoot Saturday night, because I'm going to see Freezepop at El Corazón that night instead. Freezepop are also playing at PAX this Friday night and I decided I'd rather see them up close at the club than be stuck in a big crowd at PAX, but if you go to PAX I do highly recommend seeing them.
