Folklife’s Indie Roots at Center Square

May 26, 2011

So you are missing Sasquatch this weekend, and you are looking for ways to make your weekend a little less meaningless.  Thankfully for the Puget Sound residents that like their live music to be provided on the cheap there is always the option of the Northwest Folklife Festival.  At folklife you won’t get Esurance and Jack Links marketing rats handing out useless swag. When I was in my wholesome youth I recall walking barefoot with a half-dreaded mop top looking for every booth with free samples, and yes such folk still make it back every year.  Folklife is free, that means you don’t have to pay anything, free, yes I know, I said free. This year, Indie Roots at Center Square will be provide the most consistent line up.  Led to Sea, who will be traveling to the Music Hall of Williamsburg next month is a gem to check out on Friday. Angelo Spencer et les Hauts Sommets, is the Saturday must see as they take experimental indie pop to new horizons. Don’t go on Sunday unless you want be lulled into a deep slow folk inspired sleep.  Yuni in Taxco, who recently played KEXP’s Hood to Hood show at the Sunset in Ballard will be closing things up for the weekend on Monday.
