I have it from a very reliable source that Mumford and Sons are scheduled to play a May date in Calgary at the Saddledome. If this turns out to be true then they are a guaranteed lock for one of the headliner spots.
I wouldn't be surprised if you are picturing me peeling a carrot with a staple gun.
Haha sounds like you guys had a great time at the Deacon show though. Any chance he could be rampantly speculated about? I don't know how often he tours. The only time I saw him was at Bumbershoot and I had no idea who he was when we saw him. Fun times though and that seems like an act right up Sasquatch's alley
I saw them last year and the show was sold out (or at least very close) and they were fantastic. One of my top shows of the year, so much energy.
Where did you see them? I am guessing it was right before/after their show in BHAM. They played The Wild Buffalo in Bellingham and that was a pretty small venue for them to be booked in the first place and I fully expected a sell out

I kinda feel like the Deac has obscure philosophical objections to things like Sasquatch. He's done festivals before, but not many and not often.
The Nepchune is one of my favorite venues that I have been to, ever. It was beautiful. It is set up perfectly, with the bar area feeding directly into the GA floor. And those stained glass windows! Objectively they are kinda dorky, but by the end of the evening I wanted to lick them. I don't know if every artist who plays there sets up lights behind them like Dan Deacon did, but watching them flash and change color (Youtube vids have verified that this did in fact happen) was one of the coolest parts of the whole show.
In terms of quantities of sheer fucking fun, that show is waaaay up on my list. I'd have to think about it more thoroughly, but it might have been the actual most fun I've ever had at a show. That whole night was one of the craziest, most insanely fucking fun nights of my entire life.
