The Roots on the Bigfoot? Wow. John Reily & Friends on the Yeti? Wow. Explosions in the Sky and Mogwai on the bigfoot? Wow.
I absolutely fucking love that the top three bands listen on the bigfoot are The Roots, Explosions in the Sky, and Mogwai. I was worried about Mogwai especially getting stuck with a daytime slot, but this is going to be amazing.
Hey guys, glad you all had a good time waiting for the lineup last night! Most seem to be pretty happy with it.
My thoughts? It's not a bad lineup. It probably stacks up with last year's in overall appeal: Beck, Jack White, the Shins, and a slew of other solid bands. That said, I'm gonna sit this one out. There's just nobody on the bill this year that I can justify the value of flying across the country, renting a car, and doing all the there stuff that comes along with that. Cost too high, value too low - for me that is.
I sincerely hope you guys have a great time! Say hello to Beck for me
SHIT! Judging from all the empty cans and bottles it looks like everyone had a good time last night. One of my boys fell down the stairs so we spent the majority of the night in the ER making sue he was ok. He is.
Gotta say that this is one of the strangest line-ups I've seen from Sasquatch. Looks like it could be a lot of fun though and MOTHERFUCKING BECK IS PLAYING!!!! Worth the price right there.
Looking forward to some new discoveries and meeting up with you all in May.
I wouldn't be surprised if you are picturing me peeling a carrot with a staple gun.
I'm still having a hard time letting this lineup sink in, somehow believing that it can't be true. Last year there were only two bands I wanted to be in the pit for, Foo Dr. Garbanzohters and the Flaming Lips. This year I can count at least fifteen. Jack White, he's pretty rad. He must be doing songs from all over his career if he's getting top billing, right? I'm overwhelmed with this lineup seeing Beck, The Roots, The D, Feist, Metric, Beirut, Silversun Pickups... jesus I'm gonna be sore after Memorial Day weekend from all my time in the pit. I've wanted to see The Roots and Tenacious D for YEARS and now they're both on the same lineup.
