BLACK EYED PEAS, MODEST MOUSE DRAW BIGGEST BUMBERSHOOT CROWD

Rolling Stone

After 36 hours of wet, discouraging weather, Bumbershoot saw its biggest crowds on Monday for final-day headliners Modest Mouse, Franz Ferdinand and Black Eyed Peas. Props to the young music fans of the Pacific Northwest: without enthusiastic teens and 20-somethings braving the dreary conditions, this year’s festival would’ve been a literal washout. Local love: The Cave Singers sang beneath the Space Needle, Truckasauras rolled through EMP, and Wallpaper (actually from Auburn, Washington) covered their own greatest hits. Bumbershoot had its troubles this year, but Northwest talent wasn’t one.
