On the strokes thing I'll take the solo act too but the strokes into pavement would be fantastic but no skinny jeans for me more than likely it'll be good shorts weather like always (minus the hail)
Also Can we get the dead weather or them crooked vultures? not impressed with Coachella's headliners that much but Sasquatch should get some of their sub-headliners (who are all for the most part very good) like they did last year.
David Byrne & Fatboy Slim have that concept album out in February. No talk yet of doing anything live with one another, but judging by the new single, it would be a very well received set at Sasquatch. I'd be down (as long as FRATboy slim leaves his solo music and fans behind)
My wishlist: even weather. Last year was WAY too hot. That hail (2006) was nuts. Let's just have sun and some nice, shade-providing clouds.
when it was really windy sucked too. because i was wearing my contacts so my eyes were so dry but i ended up not dying or something idk. was cool cause national got put on yeti though. wind=hail > heat
O.K., so here’s my wish list. Most likely get some shit from other about this, but that’s the way it goes, to each his/her own when it comes to music. Although this list mostly contains well established acts, I really do believe that my favorite part of various music festivals is discovering all the awesome musical acts I’ve never herd about before (or at least very little), I love expanding my musical horizons, plus seeing already established acts, pioneers, underground, up n comers n what not. Too much fun! Can’t wait for this year! See Ya Soon! Oh, P.S. this is somewhat separated, but in no particular order.
Depeche Mode Arcade Fire Faith No More Soundgarden Leonard Cohen Neil Young Daft Punk The Pixies Steve Earle Heart The Beastie Boy’s Bjork

No offense, I love Heart, I really do. But Sasquatch is not a casino. I'm aware they're also doing Lilith fair, but they fit in there. Sasquatch? Eh. I guess if Pearl Jam is there and Cameron Crowe is filming them for his documentary on them, sure since he's married to Nancy. But they mostly do play casinos, not really what most people consider a Sasquatch act. I would still watch em though if they were booked. It's just very, very, very unlikely.
AWK is doing warped tour this year, I'm never sure how Sasquatch crowd likes getting warped tour acts. But AWK is amazing, I love him. Especially if he does what he as lately, plays to audio of his music, dances, talks, and maybe plays some songs. He rules.
I don't mean to even tear you down, I'm just logically speaking.
Here's a wish list in no particular order (including comedians)
Soundgarden Pavement (wooo) Artic Monkeys (again) Beck (again) The Flaming lips(again) MGMT The Hives (again) Wolfmother(again) The subways Explosions in the Sky (again) Matt costa (again) Mike Snow Iglu and Hartley Dan le Sac vs. Scroobius pip The Dead Weather Them Crooked Vultures LCD Soundsystem Vampire Weekend She and Him The Strokes or Julian Casablancas Minus the Bear (again) The Lonely H Phoenix Airborne Toxic Event (again) Franz Ferdinand Ben Kweller Slender means (again) Snow Patrol Interpol (again) Social Distortion Tegan and Sarah (again) and the only one I'm adding that isn't possible or that great of a fit Tom petty just because he's great but he sells out the gorge on his own :(.
Comedy Arj Barker Demetri Martin (he owes us) Louis CK Nick Kroll Nick Swardson
As for the dance tent I'm not really sure who's a good fit.
I'm not even sure if a lot of these bands are even around anymore but here goes: Modest Mouse Minus the Bear Radiohead Death Cab Franz Ferdinand Harvey Danger New Pornographers The Posies Silversun Pickups Smashing Pumpkins The Thermals They Might be Giants Weezer Yeah Yeah Yeahs Noah and the Whale The Vines Jaguar Love Brand New Incubus Dredg Arctic Monkeys Cold War Kids
But just book Modest Mouse and Minus the bear and I would be as happy as could possibly be
sunset rubdown or wolf parade or handsome furs please please please
Nice first post. Wolf Parade would be one of those "holy cow" moments for several of us to see them on the lineup, since they don't tour much anymore. I've seen the two side projects, and I would not miss Sunset Rubdown. Handsome Firs had a lot of energy, and was a fun show, but I was floored by Sunset Rubdown.
