Last night LP performed at Bumbershoot – an annual international music and arts festival held in Seattle, Washington. It was LP’s second performance at this festival, first one took place in 2012. Bumbershoot is one of North America’s largest festivals, it takes place every Labor Day weekend at the Seattle Center.
The name of the festival was taken from a colloquial term for umbrella – the name was chosen both as a knowing nod of respect to Seattle’s most famous weather pattern, and a symbol of the overarching mission of the festival: to be an umbrella for all of the arts. The programming at Bumbershoot strives to be a contemporary microcosm of what is current across all disciplines and genres.
I was able to find few really nice quotes about LP’s performance. @ceelee88: “I could have stood there for 3 days straight and listened to LP perform. Her band was incredible, and she is so fucking cool. Like, please let me be that cool when i grow up. Even just HALF as cool. God. I will see her whenever she is in Seattle. k thx.” @aviatorrae: “Always the best show of all time…”
@cathbassetti: “The mighty LP tonight in the shadow of the Space Needle, Seattle. Nice to see you again, LP!” @west_coast_blonde: “Saw the absolutely incredible, beautiful LP last night. There are no words to Express how perfect it was!” @ravens.wings: “I’m so happy I got to see you!!! It was an amazing performance!!! Thank you LP!!!”
Jacque’ Compton: “Thank you LP for playing in Seattle!! I love your music and your vocals are breath taking… also thank you for taking time to take a picture!!” @ericarose7788: “She was amazing!” @muzkjunki: “LP – Fisher Green Stage – fantastic performance – Seattle, WA.” @bumbershoot: “Shook 🔥.” @oversized_wayfarer: “The amazing LP.”
LP flew to Seattle straight from Italy, where she was staying for the last couple of days – LP performed at a private show along with her band. She’ll be back in Italy on the 9th September, for the RTL 102.5’s Power Hits Estate 2019. In Seatttle, LP’s drummer Neal Daniels was replaced by LP’s friend, Adam Christgau. Neal’s sister was getting married over the weekend, so obviously he couldn’t be with the band.
For now, not many updates. LP is keeping herself ‘under the radar’, she’s mostly in the studio working with various musicians and songwriters, as she wants her new record to be ready for the release early next year. But as always I’m keeping my finger on the pulse. I didn’t report about LP’s private Italian gig, as almost nothing at all was shared.
