Polka Dot Dot Dot

17 Mar

K Records holds this festival on an organic farm in a little town just south of Olympia every summer called the Helsing Junction Sleepover.  There’s a huge range of artists, from acoustic bluegrass to free jazz, garage rock to twee pop, with a massive DJ dance party at the end of the second night.

Last August, the festival had beautiful weather all weekend, but the third and final morning brought wind and rain. Calvin Johnson played under that blue tarp, and everyone crowded under the tree like story time to stay dry.

When Olympia folk-doo-wop stars Polka Dot Dot Dot took the stage, the wind just about blew the stage away. The little pop screen for my Zoom works wonders though, and my recordings turned out pretty good.

I’m not sure about the title of this song, but I guarantee you’ll like it! It shall be tentatively known as the “having a crush in Olympia song.”
