Wow - blown away by lack of mocking. I was prepared to take hits for the Willy Moon post. Yay! Indeed, I saw Bjork. Aside from being amazing, she won my heart because she is the only performer I have ever seen who appeared to be awkward as me. Of course, she does have unbelievable talent to outweigh the awkwardness. Anyhow, it made me appreciate her live performance much more.
I saw Bjork back in the day too! That was my first sasquatch and I never made it back until 2010. That year was great though, two Beastie Boys sets, Arcade Fire, Bjork, it goes on!
Anyways, back on topic, here's a review of CHVRCHES from SXSW. It's from Pitchfork so those snobs can't be trusted too much, but it sounds like they will put on a pretty good show. I really hope they don't play 1pm Bigfoot stage like the current schedule looks. pitchfork.com/news/49905-sxsw-chvrches/

Davers - MUCH appreciated. Red Fang was on his list, so that's great. I haven't listened to nearly as much Japandroids as I should have at this point, so I will get on that. Torche is new to me so I will do some homework. Thanks a ton! Yeah - after six years of going without him (my first year was before we started dating) he surprised me early for my birthday by saying he would buckle and accompany me, finally. Admittedly, the range of Sasquatch music is broad and pretty damn eclectic, but it is mostly my kind of music - not his. Thus, the 'uncovering new music' thread seemed perfect. I would like to make it a better-than-miserable experience for him so any bands that fall into those categories will be a lovely addition to my 2013 Sasquatch experience.
(off-thread-topic) - Nadine, that's one of my favorite movies ever!
