Last month we were live at the Bumbershoot Music & Arts Festival in Seattle. Our shows included three fantastic music performances -- Jonathan Coulton, PWRFL Power and Rhett Miller of the Old 97s (above). In addition to the podcast version of this show, you can download individual songs from the direct links included below.

Jonathan Coulton
is the internet's leading serio-comic troubador. He's blazed a trail for independent musicians everywhere, blending comedy with subtle character studies. In 2006, we interviewed Coulton on The Sound of Young America. Later that year, Coulton performed as part of our Live in New York show.

Jonathan Coulton - Skullcrusher Mountain (MP3)
Jonathan Coulton - I Feel Fantastic (MP3)

PWRFL Power is Kaz Nomura, a classical guitar virtuoso and indie pop stylist. He rocketed to the top of the Seattle Music scene over the last two years with sweet, simple songs backed by sometimes baroque guitar lines. He recently self-released a self-titled LP.

PWRFL Power - A Wonderful Ghost (MP3)
PWRFL Power - Baby Tiger (MP3)

Rhett Miller jumped out of an airplane and onto our stage at Bumbershoot. He's best known as the frontman of the country-rock band The Old 97s, and has also released music under his own name. He rocked our crowd with two Old 97s classics. (Special note: please excuse the awkward mix on Dance With Me, we had a verse worth of trouble with the house sound system).

Rhett Miller - Dance With Me (Into the Ocean) (MP3)

Greg Behrendt & Tig Notaro Live at Bumbershoot on The Sound of Young America

Show:

Last month we were live at the Bumbershoot Music & Arts Festival in Seattle. Our shows included two standup performances, from two of our favorite standup comics - Tig Notaro and Greg Behrendt (above).

Tig Notaro can be seen as Officer Tig on Comedy Central's The Sarah Silverman Program, and of course touring the nation as a standup comic. She performed standup for us in Seattle.

Greg Behrendt is a veteran standup, who found unexpected success a few years ago with the relationship book "He's Just Not That Into You." The success of the book, and popularity of his appearances on Oprah Winfrey's show netted him a daytime talk show. Greg performed, then we talked with him about fitting his persona into the odd format of daytime talk.
