On the concert front, we have good news and bad news.
We’ll tackle the bad news first.
JamBase, a two-day festival scheduled July 5 and 6 at the Gorge Amphitheatre in George, Wash., has been canceled.
Event promoter LiveNation didn’t explain the reason for the cancelation in a news release, but did say a new event from JamBase featuring some of the artists in a “more intimate setting” in the Seattle area is being planned.
The bill included Robert Plant, Bruce Hornsby, Michael Franti, Slightly Stoopid and Rodrigo & Gabriela. Ticket refunds are available at the place of purchase.
The good news? It appears Pig Out in the Park is coming together nicely. The annual Labor Day weekend extravaganza has booked headlining concerts from ’90s alt-rock band Spin Doctors, 1960s English rock band The Zombies, featuring founding members Colin Blunstone and Rod Argent, the Southern rock band A Thousand Horses and regional favorite Too Slim and the Taildraggers. There are plenty of local stalwarts, as well. Sammy Eubanks, Big Mumbo Blues Band, Civilized Animals, Terrible Buttons, the Fat Tones, Abbey Crawford Orchestra and Soul Proprietor are among the acts taking the stage at Riverfront Park at summer’s end.
