I asked both brilliant and talented photographers Erik Clineschmidt and Jason Tang to list their five favorite Bumbershoot photos. Jason offered these as his favorites. – ChrisB.

“I almost didn’t go to this one because Metric was playing 15 minutes after [their set began].  I’m so glad I did, even if it was for one song!”

Carly Nicklaus of USE:

“They totally killed it!  So much energy and a lot of fun to shoot.”

Janelle Monae:

“Karma, I tell you. [When security stopped] letting anyone else in to the Metric KEXP lounge show, I figured I might as well kill some time and catch Janelle at the Fisher Green Stage.  Boy, was I in for a big surprise!”

Raphael Saadiq:

“I actually made it to all of the lounge shows on Sunday.  Not surprising, they saved the best for last.”

“Epic lighting with those wall-to-wall screens. The sound was great in there too; by far, my favorite venue.”
