Lemolo at Seattle's Waterfront
The weather has been beautiful recently in Seattle. It has cooled off some from what was a pretty hot few weeks. On Saturday I panicked a little because I realized I have not done the outdoorsy things I wanted to do this summer. I decided to get outside on Sunday.
What to do. I consulted the always reliable events calendar in The Stranger (warning - The Stranger sometimes has colorful ads) and saw that there was live music at the waterfront for a Friends of Waterfront Seattle event. I was too late to catch Heather Thomas, but I could easily get down to the waterfront in time to see Lemolo. I've heard of them and have wanted to see them.
Tony, who has been in bands, is the real music writer here at Rain City Collective. I can't speak all that authoritatively about range, instruments, harmonies, etc. I just like music, and I know what I like. I liked Lemolo a lot. Great music in a beautiful setting. A little touristy, but it's on the water. The sun was setting over Elliott Bay, the Great Wheel was rolling, and people were hanging out on the pier and in the beer garden. And on stage was a popular Seattle band, serving up almost 2 hours of their awesome "dream pop". I'm ready for the next show. There's only one problem - there are a lot of great musicians and bands to keep track of in Seattle these days.
