Earlier this month, it was announced that City Arts Magazine will be hosting their first-ever three-day music festival this year, and in case you haven’t heard, the lineup is a doozy!  Some of the bigger acts include She and Him, Gogol BordelloBelle and Sebastian, and The Vaselines, to name a few.  Also added to the bill include Cat Power, Fruit Bats, Phosphorescent, Wye Oak, RA Scion, and Lucy Schwartz (see the full lineup below). The festival will run from October 20-23, with shows happening in venues spanning from downtown Seattle to Capitol Hill, and as far away as the Showbox SoDo.  This is one debut festival that will be hard to top in years to come, and you surely won’t want to miss taking part in it.
