There are two ways of looking at Upstream, a music festival unrivaled in its ability to spur discussion (or just hand-wringing) about the politics and culture in Seattle. On the one hand, it’s another financially inaccessible music fest, this time bankrolled by a tech billionaire. On the other hand, it’s commendably ambitious, seems to operate in good faith, and results in a whole bunch of local artists getting Paul Allen’s money. In the fest’s second year, its top-of-the-lineup programming offers much of the same as the first time around: second-tier pop stars (Miguel), music fest veteran indie (Flaming Lips, Little Dragon), and something for the middle-aged rocker set (Jawbreaker).
