OK I'm ready to get past the hey-who-took-the-flaming-lips-and-turned-them-into-NIN conversations. Especially since I've been part of some.
I know I'm excited for this year, and ready to get more so. Last year, one of the people on the board put together a podcast, which I know I listened to on the drive out to the gorge and greatly appreciated. It was great to get a listen to some music to help in the decision-making of which stage to check out when. In light of all this, I decided put together a 3-part mix, one for each day of the festival. Day 1 (Saturday) is complete, I'll let you know when I get the other 2 parts up. Hope you all enjoy:

Glad to do it- Basically, it's a mix of tracks that I thought were good introductions to some of the performers, and for a few bands that I was unfamiliar with, a track that I enjoyed out of the 3-4 that I sampled for each. Sort of a starting point to see if the acts are worth looking into further before May rolls around.
if you dont mind me ask which bands were you unfamiliar with, sadly i dont know some of these bands , but of the ones you posted that i know i might have posted differently, not cause i dont like the songs ...haha just because..just want to know which ones you like.

Sure- the only ones that are on there that I wasn't very familiar with before putting that together were: Blind Pilot, King Khan & The Shrines, Owl City, and Death Vessel. All the others I knew somewhat well. There are some tracks that I picked for random reasons too though- KoL I picked "the bucket" just because that still is my favorite song of theirs, and I feel like it'll transfer to the live show well, Passion Pit I picked "I've Got Your Number" because I figured most people that knew them only knew "Sleepyhead," and I thought it was worth putting a different track out there...etc.
