Ear Candy’s Official Bumbershoot Kickoff Party

What better way to kick off Bumbershoot weekend than with a solid lineup drawn from all corners of the local soundscape? The Macklemore-hosted and festival-condoned kickoff event opens with the harmonic indie rock of five-piece outfit Curtains For You, followed by the bold swagger and smooth flow of unstoppably creative emcee Sol and the psychedelic cross-genre pop of Kay Kay and His Weathered Underground. At the top of the bill is the soulful bluesy rock of Thee Emergency, led by spirited frontwoman Dita Vox. Bumbershoot is all about the best Seattle has to offer, and that’s exactly what this kickoff celebrates. NICK FELDMAN
