Friday at noon on the homepage, we'll host a live pre-Bumbershoot concert in our old basement press room, with local artists and Bumbershoot performers Sera Cahoone and Deep Sea Diver. They will play a few songs for a private audience in the building, streamed in the centerpiece spot on seattletimes.com for all the Internet. Cahoone plays Bumbershoot Saturday at 3:30; Deep Sea Diver is on Sunday at 7:30.
Cahoone — the stoic, countrified Seattle singer-songwriter (and yet she has a song called "Rumpshaker") — will play from her upcoming album "Deer Creek Canyon," out Sept. 25 on local label Sub Pop Records. Fun facts about Deep Sea Diver: also a local band, and it features Jessica Dobson, guitarist for the Shins and Beck.
After the live show we'll have high quality videos of the songs. For an idea of what this is all about, watch these:
