Goes without saying that they'll be some of the finest musicians at the Gorge that whole weekend. JUST LISTEN TO THAT FUCKIN' VIBRAPHONE PLAYER!
I was totally about to comment on that guy's glockenspiel solo, but after this comment I had to look up the difference, and it's a good thing I didn't. That would have been embarrassing!
I would not normally pay to see them, and I agree that it would be pretty cool to experience them in a Gorge setting, but they're on your top five/ten most exciting acts for Sasquatch this year? This surprises me. Yeah, they're great musicians, but their music is horribly derivative. Personally, the "lounge" thing is kinda boring too. I'd much rather have some big band jazz or swing action. Either way, if there aren't any conflicts I'd love to burn one down with you guys and see if I can get into their groove. I can't decided whether I'd rather be laying on the grass or right up in front for their show. I think location would dramatically affect the experience.

I'd probably move Pink Martini, Ratatat, and Modest Mouse down, move Das Racist, Sleigh Bells, Decemberists, Deerhunter, and GBV up, then it would be more accurate. Plus, I'd drop Noah & The Whale, since I don't think you actually give two shits about them, you just mentioned you sort of like them in a post once. Then I'd maybe add Foo Dr. Garbanzohters, just because you feel like you have to see them.
Anyway, I made that list entirely based on Gramma posts, so there was no input from PMs or personal conversations. I could probably do the same for most of the regulars here, and be fairly accurate.
