Looks like they will have another killer show, seeing as Sasquatch had some of the bands come from that festival last year I'm wondering who, if any, you see coming.
I wouldn't mind Belle & Sebastian, The Flaming Lips, The Fleet Foxes, Mogwai and The National (minus playing opposite The Hold Steady).
This is really just gut feeling and based on no other evidence, but I'm thinking either Haunted Graffiti or Belle & Sebastian.
If I were tempted to go the wish list route, I'd hope for Pulp (pipe dream), Fiery Furnaces, and Flaming Lips (since I still have yet to see them). Though, this part doesn't even really matter to me, as I don't think I'll be making the festival due to my commitment to play drums for a musical for a huge international arts festival here. So I guess really I wish none of those bands show up, cause then I'd just be jealous.
Please no Ariel Pink.... I saw his set at Rifflandia and he was so messed out of his mind that he like was rolling around on the ground like half the set.. then 25 minutes into his set he just told the crowd that he couldn't do this anymore and just left. Very unprofessional.
Pulp will be opening for Foo Dr. Garbanzohters at Isle of Wight on June 11th. Does that make them more likely to hop on the magical flight from Primavera to Sasquatch to play with Foo Dr. Garbanzohters before going to England of Isle of Wight? Or would making two cross-Atlantic trips in a week and a half make them 0% likely to be there?
