Music (and then some) at this year’s festival.

This year Bumbershoot goers lucked out with “perfect 10” weather that brought soaring temps and bluebird skies. And although many around town—especially of the “old-school Seattle” contingency—grumbled about the festival’s escalating ticket prices, those gathered at Seattle Center this past Labor Day weekend seemed to be having a mighty fine time.

 Give back. Get music.

It’s true that good music and good causes bring people together, and it never gets old.  Protosong brought together some of the best local, independent artists to contribute unreleased songs to an exclusive playlist that the public can purchase. For two weeks only, you pick the price and the money goes towards helping provide clean water to people in developing nations.
