Mark your calendars for the Doe Bay Music Festival, August 14 & 15
I was going to wait until it got a little closer to the event before mentioning this here but I hear that tickets are selling very fast and would hate for it to sell out before any of our readers heard about this great event. As someone who does most of their recreational traveling based around out-of-town shows, this sounds like a perfect excuse to get out of Seattle for a few days without going too far from home.
This is the second annual Doe Bay Music Festival and will take place on Orcas Island the weekend of August 14 and 15th. This lineup is much more ambitious than the one last year, with many of the finest northwest bands. You can order tickets (which are a steal at $30 for the weekend) here.
The full schedule is here and it includes many of our favorite bands, like The Long Winters, Friday Mile, Slender Means, The Moondoggies and Hey Marseilles:
