Also, on the way home I heard another End jock mention a "reunion band" (most likely referring to Jane's) and an End Acoustic band. Now, who could that be? Tenacious D? That would kick ass. NIN, Jane's Addiction, The D! Very cool! I have no factual data on the D being a part of the 'squatch, just thinking. How many "acoustic bands" are there that 107.7 plays? It's gotta be Tenacious D.
Reunion band is probably Jane's Addiction.
End Accoustic band is Airborne Toxic Event, who The End loves so much despite playing only one very 90s song of theirs to death. It's a reference to Endfest Unplugged, which was also Bad Religion, PotUS, Everlast and a couple others. So they could theoretically get any of those, but it's almost surely Airborne Toxic Event.
The third thing they mention is "Endie" Award winners - Kings of Leon and Santogold both did that.

I really don't have anything to say about KoL if they were to headline. I've listened to a few of their songs, and nothing really stuck out at all(may just be me listening to the wrong songs though). If they do get the headliner nod, I may go back and try and listen to some of the consensus' favorite tracks, but if they're just a mid-day band or something, I'll probably try and find something at one of the other stages/tent(s).
I am really hoping for some very unexpected headliner to make things interesting. I like some of the bands that are in the mix so far, but nothing is making me super excited. That could all change in about 12 hours though... Who else will be listening to The End tomorrow morning while they are refreshing the Sasquatch page and the Ear Candy blog?
Just thought I'd let you know I won't have the info on my blog until tomorrow morning so no need to refresh your browser tonight. But I do plan to post the lineup immediately after I get the press release so check back then.
