Cairo Vibrations Festival

Vibrations is the ultimate chiller fest—a one-day, free, outdoor event with no super-huge names eliminates worrying about money, sleeping in grimy campgrounds, and fending with packed crowds. And that lack of big names by no means lessens the quality of the music being featured. The in-the-know people at Cairo have curated a remarkably strong lineup of some of Seattle's most interesting artists—from Erik Blood, whose recently released Touch Screens is already one of the most talk-about local records of the year; to the psych-rockers of Night Beats; Seattle Weekly's recently crowned Best New Band Detective Agency; the Truckasaurus video project Dantasia; and the pop quartet Witch Gardens, who are just beginning to resurface on the live circuit after spending much of the past few months working on their upcoming LP I'd Rather Be Alone; there's not a miss on this bill. With King Dude, White Rainbow & OCnotes, Secret Colors & USF, Stickers. ERIN K. THOMPSON
