They've never had a Banana Shack artist rival a late night set, and I doubt they would ever do that. It's the exact same crowd at both, so I highly doubt they would porpoisefully split the crowd.
Remember that time they put the Flaming Lips on at the same time as Yeasayer? I think about ten thousand people had their brains ripped in half that day, I mean, they basically have the exact same fanbase. I really don't think they think about these things that hard.
I remember the year that Flaming Lips played against Ghostland Observatory. I know this board is not big on Ghostland but that was a really tough choice for me.
James Murphy -> Feed Me would be the best night ever. I feel like the badfeelings about not seeing Bon Iver would be gone in a second once JMurph gets the tent going.
I'm gonna have to listen to Feed Me since you guys hyped them up so much. I like Bon Iver too, but I don't give a shit about him if James Murphy is DJing at the shack. I feel LCD Soundsystem was disrespected a couple years ago by only being given a 60 minute slot, and then fucking Pavement got to play for god knows how long. I hope they let James go on for as long as he wants, he's awesome.

I agree with LCD being disrespected by only getting a 60 minute slot. However Pavement can play as long as they fucking want. That show was great.
I'm pretty sure I'm the only person attending Sasquatch that doesn't get the appeal for Feed Me. Perhaps I'm just getting too damn old.
I think it's funny because Pretty Lights is the only EDM artist on this lineup and the Coachella lineup that I have listened to and actually really enjoyed. I am not a EDM hater, I am just a situational EDM listener, and that situation usually involves being at a festival under the influence of dr0ogz.
I really like the song "Shining Bright Despite the Plight" from the album Glowing in the Darkest Night.

That's pretty much my feelings about EDM aside from the Pretty Lights comment. I can't sit at my house or drive in my car and listen to it but if I'm under the influence of good ol Molly it's usually pretty great. Boys Noize was one of my favorite Sasquatch performances ever a few years ago for that very reason.
You shouldn't base your interest in Pretty Light live show solely on his recorded material. He plays a pretty good live set featuring the best of his catalog mixed with a large variety of other music that he remixes. His recorded material is hit and miss for me. I really love some of his songs, but some are very boring. I imagine there would be some full sets floating around out there on the internet.

Imagine the biggest dance party ever, and multiply that by a thousand. That's what a Pretty Lights show is like. He plays everything from his downtempo stuff to his newer, heavier songs. So don't be surprised if you hear some of his slower, groovier songs because both of the times I've seen him he has played quite a bit of everything from his catalog of music.
