    Nice, well rounded, line up. I’m glad to see Zoe Muth is performing. I was afraid we lost her since she moved to Austin, TX. Thanks for the free music, Seattle.

    I play in VamoLa, a Community Samba band that plays most major festival events in King County. Is there someone I could speak to about playing in next year’s Out to Lunch series?

    Thanks much,

    Just saw the band Dehli to Dublin at the Westlake Center OTL concert. The sound was great, good sized crowd, and the band was great! Thanks for the show!

    12:00-1:00 PM, huh? I’m sure the unemployed vagrants will enjoy the show while the rest of us are at work. Maybe after 6:00 PM would work better for the working stiffs?

    This is a great “free” lineup! Dan Hicks, the Paperboys, Big Sandy could all be bumbershoot draws.
