Day 3: Top 3 Can’t-Miss Picks for Monday at Bumbershoot

We’ve made it to the final day of the festival. Our legs are tired, our ears are ringing and we’ve eaten too much festival food, but we are amped for the culmination of this year’s Bumbershoot. And if you want to relive the past couple days of the festival, check out our Day 1 photos, with images from Day 2 forthcoming.

Ty Segall (Fisher Green Stage, 3:15 PM)
We’ve seen quite a few polished, hi-fi bands at the festival this year, so we’re in the mood to let our hair down a little. Giving a clear nod to Seattle’s grunge and garage rock roots, Ty Segall offers a raw, rough-around-the-edges approach to alt-rock. Between driving guitar riffs and screeching vocals, you might want to bring some hearing protection for this set.

Fujiya & Miyagi (Fisher Green Stage, 8:00 PM)
Britain’s answer to the German Krautrock movement comes in the form of Fujiya & Miyagi, named after a brand of record player and a key character from Karate Kid, respectively. The electo-experimental quartet plays a mellow, downtempo brand of music, with quirky lyrics (think Knickerbocker and Taiwanese Boots).

Hey Marseilles (Starbucks Stage, 8:00 PM)
Making yet another appearance at Bumbershoot, the beloved local chamber-pop group Hey Marseilles will once again charm the crowds with their catchy composition and delightful instrumentation. The gaggle of gents that make up the group play a wide range of instruments, from violas to cellos to accordions to trumpets to mandolins, and everything in between. The band’s breakout hit, Rio, is sure to be on tonight’s setlist, and would serve as the perfect swan song to Bumbershoot 2012.
