All this talk about the ASL interpreter at Wu-Tang Clan’s recent Bonnaroo performance has us recalling this now-classic interpretation of Black Eyed Peas’ “My Humps” back in 2009.
This 30-year-old photo of the KidsArt Stage entrance reminds us that we announced Youngershoot content earlier this week.
(Also, nice ‘83 touch: the “Lost Kidz” sign in the window.)

Modest Mouse - “Jesus Christ Was an Only Child” (Live 1997)
Today we’re introducing a Throwback Thursdays, and what better way to do that than with local heroes Modest Mouse. True to their Seattle roots, the band has performed at Bumbershoot five times including their most recent set in 2009. This clip is from their very first Bumbershoot performance 15 years ago.
