Wheedle’s Groove Day coincides with the film’s week-long theatrical premiere at the Northwest Film Forum from Sept. 3 – Sept. 9 with special historical and musical Q&As every night following the film. If you missed the two screenings at SIFF, you better not give us any excuses for missing one of nine screenings over six says. If you have to work, it’s time to get ill. More information about the screenings can be found at the Northwest Film Forum website. Dig it!
It’s hard to believe we’re just five days away from Saturday, Sept. 4., which we’ve been anticipating ever since Wheedle’s Groove was booked to play at this year’s 40th Annual Bumbershoot Festival. Now we have even more reasons to be excited. Not only is Saturday the first day of the festival and the day Wheedle’s Groove will be shaking things up before New York’s Budos Band on the Fisher Green stage, but earlier this week, Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn officially proclaimed September 4, 2010 as Wheedle’s Groove Day. Everyone, from the band members and representatives to Light In The Attic HQ, is tremendously delighted and honored to be regarded so highly for their contributions to Seattle’s storied music and film history. You can find us celebrating en masse and dancing like crazy on Saturday at the Fisher Green (State Farm) stage at 3:45pm. Come get down!
