Death cab was sooo bad. I completely forgot that I even saw them. I was only at it for the first 30 minutes. But I wasn't even paying attention so I guess my judgement shouldn't really be considered haha. I was rolling (literally) around in the lawn and color coordinating 1000 glowsticks for the glowpocalypse.
This, minus the rolling part. It was good music to chill and crack 1,000 glowsticks prior to PINK FUCKING ELEPHANTS.
I loved Cold War Kids; their performance wasn't anything special I suppose but they sounded good and I love most of their songs so I was dancing around to it.
I honestly did not care much for DFA1979 though. I was coming out of a pretty rough drunk but I figured that would make me wanna jump around and act crazy to them even more but man, they really did not sound too great to me.

AN OPEN LETTER FROM I8 TO SAM BEAM
Dear Sam Beam,
I love your new album. I love your old albums. You have done a lot of awesome songs, and you have put on some awesome shows. I was absolutely thrilled to see you.
So let me be perfectly clear here: That was not the time and place. I really enjoy what you're doing these days, and the general arc your music has taken, but that was not the time and place for you to experiment with prolonged instrumental dicking around. And I couldn't hear your voice well enough.
If you ever play Sasquatch again, I'll do you the favor of writing your setlist. Your only job is to play every song on it. I'll take care to time it perfectly according to the time allotted to you, thus ensuring that you will not pull that shit again.
P.S. Dude thank you so much for playing "Walking Far From Home."
So glad I stayed for all of the Thermals. It was a very tough call.
CWAS, I was right in the middle of this as well...I had never seen them before, so I was overdue and had to stay the whole set. I was not disappointed. Met a South African dude there and partied with him and his crew for a bunch of different sets all weekend.
Haha, come to think of it, I actually crowd surfed at the Thermals for, like the first time in 12 years. And probably for the last time, too.

Brad that sounds like nothing but awesome times! Get out of here with your crowd surfin' positivity and sweet bands. At least tell us your South African friend had bad breath, or that some dude gave you a charlie horse while crowd surfin', or change "not disappointed" to "disappointed". I'm just failing to see the hate here.
PS - I went to get food at the Yeti and wound up catching a bunch of The Thermals because they were AWESOME!!!!!!! But the chicken strips sucked!!!! Well actually, no they didn't, not at all. Anyone else have them? Great peppery crispy crunch! Damn, Brad is right. It's tough to find the hate at Sasquatch.
I wish I remembered DFA1979. I thought that they were great, but I was pretty shit-canned by that point. It seems odd to ask seeing as I was in the pit and should know, but what didn't people like about them?
