It didn't occur to me until this morning that I had seen The Roots on the lineup.
I. Fucking. Hate. The Roots.
Overall, though I'm still feeling pretty jazzed about the lineup -- it's about as good as last year and, when I think about it, about as good as 2009 was (Kings of Leon and Ben Harper? Don't matter WHAT your undercard looks like, man, that is terrible). I know now that 2010 was this wild fluke, but I also know that I don't have to have They Might Be Giants and Ween on the lineup to have a great Sasquatch.
I'm positively giddy about Beck, Tenacious D, The Shins, Beirut and St. Vincent; I'm really happy to get to see Bon Iver back at Sasquatch again, their set in 2009 is one of my favorite Sasquatch sets ever. And the electronic acts? Kinda doin' it for me. If we can't have Amon Tobin then Pretty Lights would be next on my list, and for all the shit-talking I did about Girl Talk recently I think that it is going to be a MAD party on the hill.
Mostly I'm surprised that I'm actually optimistic and not trying to hide my disappointment. Sure the undercard is absolute balls, but the undercard is ALWAYS balls. This is gonna be solid.

We're about 40 pages ahead of where I finally passed out last night so forgive me if this has been discussed already, but what's up with the late night sets? I assumed when I saw the lineup that it would be Nero and Beats Antique, but the site says they're both in the shack. Does that mean the late night sets are going to be EITS, The Roots, and Mogwai?
