Bumbershoot lineup includes Lorde, Weezer, Solange and Margaret Cho

by Albert Rodriguez - SGN A&E Writer

I know it's hard to think about Bumbershoot right now with all these April showers we're having, but you might want to put it on your calendar already. The 2017 musical artist lineup, revealed this week, features Flume, Lorde and Odesza as the three-day festival's headliners, plus Weezer, Solange, Spoon, Dillon Francis, Die Antwoord, Flo Rida, Haim, Conor Oberst, Gucci Mane, The Roots, Vince Staples, Big Sean, Lil Yachty, Sofi Tukker, Highly Suspect, Kaleo and The Maldives, to name just a few. The Labor Day Weekend event also includes several comedy acts, from Margaret Cho to Todd Barry to Judah Friedlander, not to mention authors, poets, a shorts film fest, theatrical performers and a Sub Pop Pop-Up Store, all converging at Seattle Center on September 1-3. For tickets, details and the complete list of entertainers, visit Bumbershoot.com.

If you're an old-timer like me, then you're familiar with Steely Dan. And if you're familiar with Steely Dan, then you definitely know who Donald Fagen is. One of the pop-jazz group's founding members, Fagen launched his own career in the early '80s with his critically praised debut The Nightfly, which produced two hit singles, 'I.G.Y. (What a Beautiful World)' and 'New Frontier.' It also earned seven Grammy nominations in 1983, including Album of the Year. Fagen and his newly formed band, The Nightflyers, will be appearing at the Paramount Theatre on September 23 to perform songs from his solo recordings, Steely Dan favorites and 'some swell surprises,' as promised by the man himself. Tickets are now available online at Ticketmaster.com, in person at the Paramount box office, or by phone at 1-800-745-3000. For more information, visit STGPresents.org.

Here are a few more just-announced shows to consider going to: Cut Copy on June 15 at The Neptune, DJ Shadow on July 14 at The Neptune, Future Islands on September 23 at The Neptune, Needtobreathe on October 28 at the Moore Theatre and Blues Traveler on November 12 at The Showbox Market.

Should you happen to be at Long Beach Pride next month in Southern California, you'll be treated to a performance by legendary funk-R&B artist Chaka Khan, on May 20. Similarly, country superstar Lee Ann Rimes has been booked for New York City Pride on June 25 (she interviewed with SGN a few years ago) and dance-pop duo Pet Shop Boys are going all the way to the Middle East to appear at TLV Pride, in Tel Aviv, Israel, on June 10.

Finally, send good thoughts and prayers to Elton John, as he recovers from a severe bacterial infection that he contracted while touring in South America. The Gay icon, who had to be hospitalized, is hoping to get better and return to the stage soon.
