So out of sheer boredom I was monkeying around with the faux schedual and it looks like there could be some major conflicts arising already. If it pans out the way it's been speculated one of the biggest is tUnE-yArDs, St. Vincent and The Shins. I would more than likely pick tUnE-yArDs and St. Vincent since I'm not overly impressed by The Shins music, but I would still like to see them.
The other big one looks to be the EITS, Girl Talk, Pretty Lights conflict. I've never seen EITS or Pretty Lights before, and when I saw Girl Talk it was on a really shitty stage in the pouring rain. I think that Girl Talk/Pretty Lights would be a fun night, but EITS are more my speed. But until the real schedual comes out, who the fuck knows.
I want to see all of these bands, and I know I'm going to have to miss at least one given how they'll schedule things. EITS being given a late night slot would eliminate the belt sander conflict.
I am going to choose to miss EITS, simply because I saw them last fall in one of the oldest buildings in Boise which was designed for silent films shown with live music meaning it had some of the best acoustics I have ever witnessed. Seeing them for a second time at Sasquatch in lieu of the brain-bending dance party which will be occurring on the mainstage just is not an option for me.
If it's EITS vs Girl Talk... I've seen them both multiple times so it will be mood dependant, but there's no way I'm missing Pretty Lights for EITS. I mean, Glowpocalypse, in the fucking Gorge?!? Unless we are talking about Radiohead playing The Bends on the Yeti there isn't much that will make me miss that.
There is zero chancey chance the chiggity champ of champion chancellors I am missing Girl Talk or Pretty effin Lights for EITS.
Don't get me wrong, I really enjoy EITS, but I really don't feel like a festival is the best place to experience them while a festival is the ideal place to catch Girl Talk or Pretty Lights....I could be wrong, but I won't be upset if I miss them.
