Tonight in Seattle:  

Bumbershoot announces more acts

Bumbershoot announced some more acts late yesterday afternoon (and one unfortunate cancellation). The new addtions are Franz Ferdinand, Eugene Mirman, Os Mutantes and Janelle Monae. The act who cancelled is The Ting Tings, who cited a scheduling conflict (that scheduling conflict is becoming the opening act on Pink's forthcoming tour).

The full schedule will be out sometime this summer but the confirmed acts looks like this:

Sheryl Crow / Modest Mouse / The All-American Rejects / Katy Perry / Michael Franti & Spearhead / Franz Ferdinand / Isobel Campbell & Mark Lanegan / De La Soul / Raphael Saadiq / Brett Dennen / Os Mutantes / The Long Winters / Sly & Robbie & the Taxi Gang / World Party / Keller Williams / MSTRKRFT / Roy Ayers / Common Market / UH HUH HER / Dave Alvin and The Guilty Women / Eric Hutchinson / No Age / Matt & Kim / Dead Confederate / Janelle Monae / The Cave Singers / Swollen Members / Vieux Farka Touré / Lenka / Gang Gang Dance / Todd Snider / Holy F**k / DJ Spooky That Subliminal Kid / Iglu & Hartly / Low vs Diamond / Sera Cahoone / Eleni Mandell / U.S.E / Carrie Rodriguez / The Honey Brothers / Natalie Portman’s Shaved Head / Extra Golden / Cordero / Forgive Durden / Hey Marseilles / Adrian Xavier

Amongst the new additions, the one I'm most looking forward to is Janelle Monae, an excellent R&B singer who should be putting out her debut full-length record this year. Here's a short film for her song "Many Moons".

WTF?? How can the Tings Tings cancel? Isn't there a contract in place before Bumbershoot annouces the acts? Nothing against Pink but I say make them play Bumbershoot like they were supposed to. Or else get Pink too...
