Well, I was born in Yakima, but we left after two years. But, I did live in B'Ham and Seattle and for a long long time, so that makes me even more a former local than Yakima. Anyhoo . . . yeah, the show was cool, and was not as crazy as some festivals. In terms of crowds, it was actually pretty tolerable. The music was great. I hope you at least listened to a bit of KEXP's live broadcast . . .
oops. Thanks for clearing that up. After posting I realized that may have misunderstood , though I didn't bother to worry about it.I'm in Spokane, born and raised, and unfortunately didn't get to hear any broadcast of the show. My friend Grant went and had a good time. He was also impressed by Sleater-Kinney and wishes he had seen more of them and he's fan of The Decemberists now too. I heard from others that Cat Power and The Shins also put on good sets, not to mention Built To Spill.
...dang! No editing comments. I'll have to check my typing from here on out.
Oh, Spokane. Well I guess Yakima IS more local than Seattle.Cat Power was good, but short . . . but she played long enough to convince Kimmy, who is now a Cat Power fan.By the way, I just order this box set. Thank god for Pitchfork.
