The last couple years, you've done an exceptional job of bringing acts I never thought I'd see to my backyard. First, it was Public Enemy, then the Stooges, then A Tribe Called Quest, then Roky Erickson...all for a very low price. I know people of Seattle bitch at the rising ticket costs...but when there are legends like this on the bill, there is no room for complaint.
So, my plea to you for Bumbershoot 2008 (you are thinking about it already, aren't you?) is to keep this ball rolling and please, please book Sly and the Family Stone! Please! They've just announced their first U.S. shows in quite some time, so I'm guessing they're in the market. Picture it: the Seattle Center marquee boasting "TONIGHT: SLY AND THE FAMILY STONE".
