By weeklyvolcano on June 13, 2006

Bumbershoot, er, presents "Bumbershoot Presents: People Talking & Singing," a show featuring, hmm, people talking and singing, Friday, Sept. 1, 8 p.m. at McCaw Hall.  Benefiting the youth writing and tutoring center 826 Seattle, this show features Pulitzer Prize finalist and McSweeney's co-founder Dave Eggers, comedian, author, and social observer Sarah Vowell, author, personality, and sometimes musician Daniel Handler ("Lemony Snicket"), Magnetic Fields' Stephin Merritt and other special guests talking and singing. Although tagged with the Bumbershoot seal of approval, this event is a separate paid ticket from the Bumbershoot Festival.
Tickets for "Bumbershoot Presents: People Talking & Singing" are $30 reserved seating and are available now through an exclusive pre-sale offer for brainiacs who subscribe to the free Bumbershoot BumberFan club in hopes that they might receive an offer like this and get close to enough to Sarah Vowell to snatch her and carry her around in their shirt pocket and learn many wonderful things. 
Public on-sale will be on Friday, June 23 at 10 a.m. at Ticketmaster locations. â€" Suzy Stump
