Thanks to KEXP DJ, John Richards for this great one:
My first Bumbershoot was the fall of ‘93, when I moved to Seattle and the Violent Femmes were playing. I walked into the festival, straight to their performance. I worked my way through the crowd and jumped off the stage and was carried until security escorted me out. I left, went around and did it all over again and the security gave me a wink, a smile, and said it looked like I was having the time of my life. I was. I never left Seattle again and have had a warm place in my heart for Bumbershoot ever since.
