Music lineup, vendor roster out for West Seattle Summer Fest 2013

Announced today by the West Seattle Junction Association – the music lineup for this year’s West Seattle Summer Fest (co-sponsored by WSB), coming up July 12-13-14; see it here. Kicking it all off, Caspar Babypants at 11 am Friday 7/12. Other highlights include Not Dead Yet, Hobosexual, and the Rat City Brass. Meantime, you can find the vendor/organization list here (you’ll find us in the Information Booth at the heart of the festival zone again this year). As always, West Seattle Summer Fest is a three-day extravaganza that’ll be out in the street on California SW between SW Edmunds and points just north of SW Oregon, as well as on SW Alaska between 44th SW and 42nd SW. And there’s a pre-funk too – the night before Summer Fest, on Thursday, July 11th, the streets will close for setup and it’s a great time to wander while enjoying the West Seattle Art Walk‘s Junction venues.

ADDED 3:38 PM: Some other notes – starting with, the food. This year the food court is on SW Alaska east of California, instead of west as in past years. And yes, deep-fried PB&J sandwich provider Peanut Butter Goodness is back.

    Other than Rat City Brass and Casper Babypants, can anyone give info on the bands that would be something other than rock and roll? Thanks!

      Loco Moco and Jazzberry Jam are a couple projects Carol Johnston – the ebullient Senior Center of West Seattle denizen – is involved with. I’m thinking they’ll be pretty festive. And Whiskey River is the Lynyrd Skynyrd tribute band.

    I’m so sad that Caspar is playing Friday dates for this and the Hiawatha shindig! No evening/weekend concerts mean kids in childcare miss out!

    Oh man, I’m going to enjoy watching the umbrage and outrage crop up when West Seattle hears the name of who’s play Saturday night for the first time…

      Haven’t seen much outrage over band names ’round here.

  • Junctionite June 24, 2013 (5:00 pm)

    Not outrage, but I do wish there was a bit more variety in this line up. There are country, bluegrass, jazz and blues performers in the Seattle area. Music beyond rock and roll seems very under represented.
