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.
