Wye Oak is listed higher than J Mascis on the schedule page, so I think swapping those two might be in order (it wasn't always that way, but I think it changed a few weeks ago).
which is fine by me if WO gives me something to do during Pink Martini, but the prediction game can be tricky and I am kinda hoping there are a few surprises when the actual schedule comes out... like maybe Wolf Parade getting a decent slot/amount of time to play.
UPDATE: looks like they switched J Mascis and Wye Oak again... in other news, I should stop obsessing over this shit.

They do nothing for me EXCEPT in the context of Sasquatch. Their music is mild and forgettable and their fanbase are a bunch of upper class assholes, so I would never EVER go see them when they play in town (which is all the damn time), but all those mellow vibes and tropicalia rhythms are going to make for some weird, space lounge-y kind of atmosphere at the Gorge.
Like the music of Martin Denny accompanying the insanity in Alan Rudolph's film adaptation of Breakfast of Champions. The juxtaposition is going to be priceless.
