Though it should be noted that Fiery Furnaces shows are about as "difficult" as "difficult" gets.
Haha yeah some people were noticably confused at that show. And since it was a music festival I'm pretty sure half of the people there didnt even know who they were. Again, I still liked it, but I wouldnt rank it super high in my list of shows I have seen in my life.
I've had two arguments with someone on this board who thinks Elvis is headliner worthy at Sasquatch. He's two different dudes live, one part scumbag punk god, and two parts pop pop pop catchy song dude. I much prefer the former, so I didn't like his show.
I still think if he played he would headline. They seem to be moving more and more away from legacy acts so I don't see it happening but if he played (with the imposters) he would headline
On topic: Of bands that I will probably see in the next couple years Sigur Ros and Neil Young are really the two that jump to mind

Oh let's see.
-Pink Floyd -Tom Waits -Peter Gabriel
-The Knife -The Philistines Jr -Snowglobe
Honestly I've seen most of the acts that were on my "bucket list" (I fucking hate that term) at one point. So I'm pretty fulfilled in that regard, although Tom Waits and Peter Gabriel are like the elusive final two trading cards you need to complete your collection... And they can only be found in the really fancy, high end trading card shops...
