You always hope for good weather and great bands when you go to music festivals. Northwest LoveFest delivered the goods on the music end, in spite of the drizzly weather. Northest Lovefest 2012 took place over three days, the last weekend of June 2012.
Over forty-five artists performed throughout the community arts festival. Featured performers included JC Flow, Star Anna and the Laughing Dogs, NoRey, The Young Evils, Impossible Bird, Perry Acker, Ben Union, Carson Henley, Tess Henley, Whiskey Syndicate, Caspar Babypants, and more.
This is the third year that the festival has taken place, and the first year to be held at Magnuson Park. This year’s version was the most ambitious yet, and had many moving parts.The organizers worked many long hours throughout the year to put this not-for-proft festival together. Those who attended were treated to a delicious blend of music from a diverse menu, served up by incredible Northwest artists.
SMI would like to thank the team at Northwest LoveFest for their passion and hard work in putting the festival together – and the artists for their talent and time. We interviewed a lot of great folks over the course of three days and look forward to bringing you those interviews and great music in future episodes of SMI Radio.

...and his work with folks like Ethan Anderson to save the music industry locally and globally with the Recording Academy / GRAMMYs is something to watch.
Or don't follow him and life will be a little less colorful and inspiring, but sometimes you don't notice how good life can be without good art and good friends.
In that respect Art is dangerous because you will need more. Andrew has plenty in the vault... ... See MoreSee Less
