Sound Check

Posted by andrew matson

Georgetown Music Fest '08

The Georgetown Music Fest is heating up. The weather is not. Last year, the GMF opened on what felt like the hottest day of the year. This year it opens on what feels like late Fall. Gray, cloudy and a little breezy. Sweatshirt weather.

The sound of drums, distorted guitar, "Check! check! check!" shouted into microphones, and, yes, overhead airplanes fills the air, but the music hasn't started yet. Right now it's rock ambiance: sound check.

The outdoor Rainier and Stockhouse stages are being serially occupied by several rock bands, each setting up their instruments, playing a few chords, almost starting a song, then thumbs-upping the sound guy and walking off stage to make room for the next band. The same thing is happening on the stage in nearby bar Jules Mae's and around the corner of 12th and Harney at the Georgetown stage. Last year there were three stages- the Georgetown stage is new.
