This Month In Photos: August 2013

Soaking up the last real month of summer, when it's still warm enough to wear shorts and a t-shirt at night. That's what August is about for a lot of PNW folks. It also mean TONS of festivals, mega-shows, and concert series'! This month we headed out to see Chastity Belt and Deep Sea Diver at the KEXP Concerts at the Mural series, and saw the first show of Bummershoot, a DIY festival happening Labor Day weekend (though we didn't make it out to Bumbershoot, the city's signature festival). August was a sweet month for shows; I hope you took advantage!

My first show of the month was a beach-front benefit concert for Lha Charitable Trust. Here's Heels To The Hardwood. August 1.

Enjoying Fremont Art Walk at the new Atlas Space (in with Atlas Clothing and Beats Anne Bohos shop). This event featured Bardo:Basho. August 2.

The fun and FREE Concerts at the Mural series, sponsored by KEXP. Deep Sea Diver (above) and Chastity Belt (below). August 9.

Jet Man Jet Team Tour Kick-Off show at Chop Suey. August 11.
Soft Shadows opened.
Jet Man Jet Team put on a killer set.
Creative musical use of children's toys.

The ever-epic My Bloody Valentine played a sold-out Showbox SoDo August 21.
Best photos I could get after getting smacked for taking photos by staff. Shame, SoDo.

Super funny singer-songwriters Katrina Charles (left) and Debbie Miller (right). Conor Byrne. August 22. 

Mitts played an energetic set at the Blue Moon Tavern, August 23.

BUMMERSHOOT: Day 1. Hollow Earth Radio hosted the first epic night of three during the Bummershoot festival. Opening act was the excellent Briana Marela (above right), fresh off a tour and celebrating the funding of her Kickstarter trip to Iceland to record her album. She was followed by Try The Pie singer-songwriter Christine (bottom right), who also plays in Sourpatch and Salt Flat. The night also featured a performance art piece by Viviane James/White Boy Scream (very bottom left), and music by Pleasure Beauties, as well as The Webs.
