On BUMBERSHOOT's main website, you can customize your own schedule and check out what else is in store for you on 9/3/11, as well as the rest of the weekend in the likes of Comedy, Performing Arts, Words & Ideas, Theatre, Spectacle, and Visual Arts.

I'm personally enthralled to see Little Dragon, STRFKR (StarFucker), and Brite Futures (formally known as Natalie Portman's Shaved Head) tomorrow. I've seen NPSH back in their prime in 2009... These three bands/artists should be the highlight gigs of the day for me..

I'll also be roaming Flatstock for hours, the many merch stands, and the Thai Food tent. Because what's Bumbershoot without Asian street food?

This is the first Music & Art Fest .rapt has covered since.......Bumbershoot 2010? I might weep. Not to worry, I'll be covering much more in the future.
I could only stay away from .rapt for so long.... A fresh quarter in college is starting this month and my plans for permo-Californiacation come this winter are still underway! There's much life to be discussed, lot.

In the meantime, those of you attending Bumbershoot's weekend-long events alongside me, let's endure an eruption of Galactic Bossonova good times and hear some great music.
