Maybe, but, please... no. I was dragged to one of their Madison Square Garden shows (was in NY at the time anyway, and a friend of mine needed someone to go with), and well... no thank you. Not saying they're bad. But I feel that having them their would be like having Dave Matthews there.
I just read that Dispatch might be coming back in 2011. This would be a perfect fit for Sasquatch!
I'll admit to have been a pretty big fan around the time they were breaking up, circa 2002. I never got to see them at that time, so I would welcome an opportunity at Sasquatch (as I probably wouldn't go to see them otherwise).
I don't think they would pull a certain type of concert goer in droves like DMB would; they were just never that big.
So the fact that he is playing smaller theatre type venues and starting in Middle East Canada kinda works against us, but I noticed Robyn has a pretty nutty east, west, east, west tour going on right now and since the two are pretty much the epitome of comparable, I say the outlook is good.
Plus he will be performing all of "Brian Wilson Reimagines Gershwin", which most definitely does not require a unmanageable number of instruments and people and perfect acoustics.
Cloud Cult is amazing live. Would be awesome to see them again at Sasquatch.
Arcade Fire is probably a band that everyone wants and I'd be disappointed if they weren't there.
Porcupine Tree is also amazing live and I think would make a good addition to the Sasquatch lineup.
Wintersleep would be a good addition as well.
And if Portishead is playing I'll die from excitement
Some other bands I want to see play there; mewithoutYou, The Mountain Goats, Crystal Castles, MGMT, Hot Chip, Built to Spill, Los Campesinos!, Brand New, The Antlers, The Black Keys, and just a long list I don't feel like typing out haha
