Bumbershoot: Three Days Was the Morning

Easily outshining any of the festival's preceding headliners, A Tribe Called Quest wrapped Bumbershoot 2006 with a packed Monday night show in Seattle Center's Memorial Stadium. Thousands flooded the venue's floor and bleachers to participate in the celebration, and their raised arms and fists, marking in time with the music, seemed surreal from an overhead vantage point. Hits from every album were welded together, juggled, and reworked in a way that few outfits could configure in such a confident manner. Calls for an encore were answered in spades and all the time spent waiting in lines for the beer garden, or searching for the press office or the closest bathroom, suddenly seemed rather insignificant.
