KEXP had a few nice words to say about the festival:
“…bands like The Hoot Hoots, Julia Massey and the Five Finger Discount, The Jesus Rehab, XVIII Eyes, Tangerine, Friends and Family, The Great Um, Abraham and Robb Benson and the Shelk will be sharing three stages – The Crocodile main stage, The Croc’s back bar and The Rendezvous’ Jewel Box – over the course of two nights, playing the free, all-ages event. Additionally, from 7PM-8:30PM, there will be readers opening each night with poetry and essays about Seattle music – from Kurt Cobain to Elvis….”

To get your copy, come to the festival and buy $5 or more of ANY of the Boombox Bands merch. So, if you really like Yonder for example, (We do!), you just go buy a CD or a T-shirt or anything else that costs $5 or more and you get a copy of the Boombox Compilation in addition to sweet stuff from your new favorite band!
