At this year's Bumbershoot Festival, The Innocent Criminals headlined the Real.com stage at Memorial Stadium. Ben thanked the organizers of the event numerous time. He mentioned that the last time he played at Bumbershoot '94 he was on either on the Rhythm Stage or the Blues Stage. He also thanked the approximately 10,000 fans in attendance for being nearly silent during the solo acoustic songs. Juan joined Ben on his raised stage for "Manic Depression." There was a strict 11 pm curfew so the band had to cut the second encore short and bust through "Manic Depression" quickly.

Such a good performance!
I loved Ben's version of Indifference, but I think I got people excited when I whispered "Pearl Jam!" to my friends, referring to the song, not what I was seeing. Front row's the best place to be but the overall energy of the crowd was so positive.

I've been to about three of Ben's shows... all in Seattle, and I think that this was one of his best. I felt honored when the band broke out with "show me a little shame", because I was told that it had never been performed live. I took my best friend to Bumbershoot to see Ben for his birthday... and it is safe to say it was one of his best.
