I take back almost every bad thing I said about Bumbershoot. The mainstage issue is still one of the biggest clusterfuck shit shows to ever exist at a festival, but everything else this weekend ranged from fine to excellent, and I'm really glad I talked myself into going for a couple of days. !!!, Crystal Castles, and Matt & Kim were easily a few of my favorite festival sets this year. It was also super fucking awesome being able to walk into the park with pockets and backpacks full of booze. Thanks (lack of) security!

I was there on Saturday and caught some cool shows. The Flavr Blu -> Nacho Picasso -> Kendrick Lamar -> Left to watch WSU Football --> Charles Bradley -> Heart.
Kendrick Lamar was awesome. He had the crowd going crazy. I was up in the stands watching but the GA was bananas. He had a backing band and no hype man! That dude rules.
The reason we went was because my wife wanted to see Heart really bad. I was indifferent on seeing Heart before but that show was so good. I loved it. Their entire encore was Led Zeppelin songs with Jason Bonham on drums and Mike Mccready had some guest guitarist duties. “Cashmere” blew my brains out.
