Three Imaginary Girls IndieTunes Podcast {Bumbershoot 2009}

The Lonely Forest at Doe Bay

Bumbershoot takes place at the Seattle Center this September 5-7 and there's about a million and a half things to do (bands, literary panels, art shows, Flatstock, kettle corn lunches) over the three-day fest.

To help folks (especially ourselves) prepare for Bumbershoot 2009, we put together this lil mix of some of the things you should add to your Bumbershoot scheduling spreadsheet. We hope this helps you pick your must-sees or at least provides a soundtrack as you wander to and fro.

Greetings, and happy Election Day!

We face this historic election brimming with hope (and nerves). We must confess, we're going to miss the crazy whirlwind drama that has been this election season. At least, a little.

Mostly, we feel relieved to know that we can refocus our imaginary attention back where it belongs: on music!

In fact, we have a brand new podcast today, chock full o' delightful Northwest bands and indie-pop tunes. It's our Election Day gift to each of you.

Download this podcast to take to the polls!
