Bumbershoot Gets Hall & Oates. Not Bad"/>
Bumbershoot -- the 41-year-old music and arts festival that is revealing on artist a day until the full-lineup announcement on June 1 -- announced today that they've booked Daryl Hall and John Oates, the strangest hipster-approved nostalgia act of them all. They're the second act (after Wiz Khalifa) confirmed to play the Seattle Center festival, Sept. 3 to 5.I will say, though, that it's adding insult to injury that readers of Bumbershoot's Facebook page (where the announcements are made each day at Noon) are treated to an ad for the Dave Matthews Band's Caravan, competing with the fest at the Gorge over Labor Day Weekend.
That's just cold.
