Bumbershoot is choosing a very elegant yet fun way to throw itself a 40th birthday party (!) this Wednesday, September 1.
Kurt B. Reighley, KEXP DJ and author of the just-released extensive tome on all things roots-rowdy, United States of Americana, is hosting this party and ice cream social at Teatro ZinZanni. It’s all about crafting up your own noggin-cover, and bringing it down to be judged by Evening Magazine, the hosts of The Marty Reimer Show, and Mr. Reighley himself (who gives a lot of coverage to crafting and homemade creativity in his new book too).
Here are the instructions:
Hat-donning party goers will receive free Bumbershoot cupcakes courtesy of Trophy, and Bumber-berry flavored ice cream from Molly Moon’s. Then there will be the presentation of the current Teatro ZinZanni production, Hearts On Fire. (Note: No dinner will be served that night, as it will be focused on the show.)
