EPID played two sets on Saturday, Sept. 5 at Bumbershoot Festival here in Seattle. The sky threatened to rain all day, but thankfully the bad weather held off until later in the night. I wasn't able to attend the KEXP broadcast, but I hope some of you got to listen online. I arrived at Seattle Center around 6 p.m. and wandered a bit to get a feel for the festival layout. EPID played the Northwest Court Stage (right near the super-secret clean indoor bathroom) which was the folk/jazz oriented stage. It was the only stage with actually chairs for seating. I decided to watch Eleni Mandell at the Northwest Court Stage until Os Mutantes was due to start on the Fisher Green Stage at 7:30. Then I saw Elvis and Nick! I went right over to the white wooden fence and said hello. I chatted with EP for a minute. We watched Eleni Mandell's first song, then he went backstage (a tent) and I left and watched Os Mutantes! They are a legendary Brazilian psychedelic band from the 60s. As I looked back in the crowd, I saw Brigham and Wyndham watching the show. In fact, Brigham asked the audience, "Did anyone watch Os Mutantes? They're awesome."
If you watch the very, very end of the WYWS video, Elvis bends down and throws something into the audience. It was the setlist, and it fluttered over to me. Here it is:
E (1,2,3 Goodbye)
D (I Heard Your Voice in Dresden)
Mary (Weeping Pilgrim)
Zom (Stay Zombie)
