Moonface would be sweet, but I don't know how it would play outside and to an unfamiliar crowd. Like I've listened to 2 and a half songs and it feels like I've been listening for 30 minutes. I'd watch if they were on the bill though.

Honestly I don't care how it would play to an unfamiliar crowd, for all the bullshit I have to put up with on the lineup every year. Krug meets the hipness quotient for Sasquatch regardless of what he's doing and it would kickass to have something that I care very much about seeing that would also keep all the fucking derpsteppers far, far away from me for forty-five minutes.

I mentioned it earlier but it was in the midst of a bunch of other lame bands that I was joking about, so I'll say it again:
Nick Zammuto is one half of The Books and he's putting finishing touches on his first solo album and is planning to tour towards the end of the year. Fantastic, lovely, glitchy electronic stuff; I think it would be perfect.
I'd love to see Zummuto there but I'm curious what the tour is going to look like. The books live show wouldn't fit anywhere at sasquatch (maybe during the day in the dance tent? I dunno needs to be somewhere where the videos are clearly visible) so if Zummuto is touring in a similar manner I wouldn't count on them. I'll dolphinately try and catch him when he comes through though
That Zammuto song is awesome. Book em. Get it? Books...eh.
I would like to see more acts that make Sasquatch special. A few to pull out of the hat that'll make music nerds turn their heads for a minute. This is what Coachella does really well. Any suggestions from anyone in that direction? I think Modeselektor and Apparat's Moderat project would fit that bill. I would cream my jeans for them. Plastikman and Nicolas Jaar would be killer as well, also in the electronic mold. I can't think of any others. I'm bad at shit like this.
