I would rather this year's Foster the People be Grouplove, but as soon as Glee covered Fun I decided there was no stopping them. Either of them would be better than AWOLnation, that song they have annoys me way more than the former 2 bands.
FD, check out "Don't Say Oh Well" by Grouplove. I want to dance every time I hear that catchy little number.
Thanks Pea. I'm sorry to say that I think I've heard a little too many indie dance tunes like that for it to really get me groovin', but I do appreciate you not writing me off as some crotchety old negative Nancy and suggesting the song to me. Thanks man.
To prove just how uncrotchey I am, here are some radio tunes that I dig when I am in alternate reality radio world in my car.
Rihanna - We Fell in Love The Black Keys - Lonely Boy Florence and the Machine - Shake It Out Gotye - Somebody That I Used to Know Mumford and Sons - Roll Away Your Stone Young The Giant - My Body(?) Lady Gaga - You and I T-Pain - 5 O'Clock Coldplay - Paradise Drake - Headlines Beyonce - Countdown (obviously!!!!!)
I would imagine that these bands won't be at Sasquatch this year with Field Day happening in London on June 2nd:
Afrocubism / Andrew Bird / Baxter Dury / Beirut / Com Truise/ Errors / Fennesz / Franz Ferdinand / Gold Panda / Here We Go Magic /Hudson Mohawke - Live / Jeffrey Lewis & The Junkyard / Julio Bashmore Metronomy / Outfit / Maya Jane Coles / Papa M / Peaking Lights R. Stevie Moore / Revere / Rocketnumbernine / Rustie / SBTRKT/ Tortoise / To Kill a King The Vaccines / Zulu Winter
Not too many big names, but a few candidates that probably won't be at Sasquatch
Also, these are the bands playing Primavera in Spain on the same weekend, so no Sasquatch appearance...
Death Cab for Cutie / Franz Ferdinand / The xx / Björk / Wilco / Beach House / The Drums / Yo La Tengo / Washed Out / Neon Indian / SBTRKT / Death In Vegas / Spiritualized / White Denim / Mudhoney / Other Lives / Shellac / Dirty Three / Olivia Tremor Control / Archers of Loaf / Jeff Mangum / Veronica Falls / Off! / ASAP Rocky / Josh T. Pearson / Godflesh / Baxter Dury / Siskiyou / Sandro Perri / Codeine / Lisabo

So Foster The People are gonna be playin' Seattle and Portland less than a month after Sasquatch. I obscenely speculate that this makes them a less likely candidate for the lineup. Which again begs the question, who is playing at Sasquatch 2012? Only the good bands I hope!
