Bumbershoot ’08: Welcome to Seattle!
SPIN.com arrives in the Emerald City and gears up for a weekend jam-packed with music, including sets from Beck and Death Cab for Cutie.
After spending the summer traveling from music festival to music festival, SPIN.com has finally reached the final — and arguably the best — event in the summer circuit: Seattle’s Bumbershoot Music and Arts Festival.
We arrived this morning and are resting up for the main event, which kicks off tomorrow. Check out our welcoming video below, filmed just moments ago at the Seattle Center. And be sure to check back to SPIN.com over the weekend for festival highlights, and all next week for video footage from Beck, Death Cab for Cutie, Stone Temple Pilots, and many more, as well as video blogs from the likes of Paramore, Dan Deacon, and Anti-Flag.
