The Last of Bumbershoot.

The third day of the festival was definitely the best!!!
First up was Improvised Shakespeare, who performed "A Midsummer Night's Wet Dream"
(titled by an audience member's suggestion)
Needless to say, we nearly died laughing!
We also caught the Black Eyed Peas show, where Fergie was clad in the worst "romper" I've ever seen in my life. Look at the picture for evidence. Regardless, the show turned out to be really fun, despite a couple of technical difficulties and looming rain clouds.

Wandering the grounds during some down time, we discovered Flatstock. Imagine a giant room filled with booths of gorgeous posters from all of your favourite bands, perfect for hanging in your room. This was heartbreaking because we couldn't buy any posters. We were going to be on the rainy festival grounds the rest of the day, and a soggy poster just didn't seem worth it. I suppose there is always next year...

The concert lineup for that evening was amazing. We got to catch the first half of Janelle Monae's show. She is the tiniest powerhouse you've even seen, with an amazing voice, sweet wardrobe, and flippin' awesome hair! Then we booked it across the fairgrounds to get up close and personal with Franz Ferdinand! They were amazing live even though the mosh pit was really crazy for the first 20 minutes of the show. Eventually it turned into a giant party. I tried to get a picture during the madness, but with all the people all I could get was grainyness. We stayed for almost the whole show, and then went across the fairgrounds again to catch the final show, Metric. Such a phenomenal show! Emily Haines and her crew were so good, we didn't want to leave! As we walked homeward, we could hear Float On echoing from the festival grounds, as Modest Mouse wrapped up their set.

All in all Bumbershoot was possibly the most fun I've ever had in a weekend, I loved every minute!
