Bumbershoot Announces Lineup, Death Cab For Cutie Will Play ‘Transatlantacism’ To Headline

Death Cab For Cutie 2012

Seattle’s music and art festival, Bumbershoot, has been going on since the 1970s, but only recently have its headlining acts stepped up their game. The festival, which takes place August 31 through September 2, is headlined by fun., Death Cab For Cutie, MGMT, Kendrick Lamar, Heart, and Tegan & Sara – certainly, nothing to scoff at.

Now it seems Ben Gibbard is on a 2003 kick. First he got The Postal Service back together, and now, at Bumbershoot, he plans to play 2003’s Transatlantacism all the way through during their set. If only I could get fun. to do Interventions + Lullabies, but The Format is wishful thinking, I suppose.

Nonetheless, the Seattle festival has something for everyone, between its mix of old and new rock music and some comedy acts. See the full lineup after the break.

I finished school with a music theory degree. Before I finished school, I was a janitor. You really should apologize to all the janitors you've ever had. You hurt them. Seriously. You did.

But, now that we've cleared that up and you called your high school janitor, know that I quit being a janitor to pursue writing about music. So here I am, and here you are, and hey how are you?
