West Seattle Summer Fest music lineup update: Caspar Babypants on Saturday, not Friday

A followup to our report Monday afternoon about the announcement of the West Seattle Summer Fest music lineup: Susan Melrose from the West Seattle Junction Association says the originally published schedule has a big error – Caspar Babypants is actually performing on SATURDAY, not Friday. His show will be at 11 am Saturday, July 13th, in Junction Plaza Park. While Susan says the website will be fixed, a “pocket guide” that’s already been printed will include the error – so please make a note on your personal calendar and/or anywhere else you can – CB’s on Day 2, not Day 1. (Meantime, as also noted in our Monday report, the Summer Fest website now has the vendor list and map too – we’re not on the list because, as always, you’ll find us helping out in the information booth – see the big question mark on the map above at California/Alaska – we look forward to seeing you there!)

    There is also an error on the “Getting Here” page. The bus routes listed no longer exist or run from downtown.

    We like to refer to the new routes as the “You Can’t Get There From Here Transit System”. We have to rely on route 22 circulator to get us anywhere close to a bus going to town, or get in the car and drive to Westwood Village. Those of us in southend of AH or Shorewood got shafted. Oh well, that is for another forum :)

      Mike, I almost included this in my response previously but since you mention it – we know this firsthand as well as via covering the news, because, while transit doesn’t currently work in the kind of time frame we need to get to breaking news, etc., so we seldom use it, we have a teenager who DOES use Metro, a lot, and the change in the 22 was a big change for him – since it is the only bus that goes through our neighborhood (upper Fauntleroy just south of the Gatewood line).

    wow, how much does it cost to reprint the pocket guide? that’s a pretty big mistake

    I used to go see the Young Fresh Fellows back in the 80’s. Anyone else that shouldn’t be missed?

    @Marcus, if you’re of the KJET generation, be sure to show up early for Mono Men (B’ham) before YFF on Friday night. And you’ll probably like King County Queens on Saturday afternoon.

    Got an e-mail from West Seattle Junction Association today saying they were correcting the “Getting Here” section that had the wrong bus routes.

    Not to be missed is West Seattle’s own Not Dead Yet. Hip new band playing good-time rock and roll. Saturday at 12:40 pm.

Sorry, comment time is over.
