I'm holding off on taking advantage of the ol' Sasquatch Record Club until the times come out; like, I don't want to start listening to The XX, get psyched, and then find out they're playing against LCD Soundsystem...
Haha you should definetly listen to the xx anyway, definetly in the top 5 albums i got last year. Its hard to take out once you put it in
Even though it may have less total, Monday (in my opinion probably not others) is the best day, any added bands will just be added conflict haha, theres already too much to handle. And Ween is sick, but Mgmt has the relevance and songs to close out a great festival
Why are people acting like the headlining is weak?? Pavement?!? I dont mean to sound obnoxious but Pavement is ridiculously huge to have on the bill, along with Ween and Massive Attack! Just because its great doesnt mean theyre not "big drawing" : ) I feel like this line-up just has less filler bands.
How were the vocals? I've heard bad things from many, many people but a good opinion is nice to hear. The high quality youtube videos i saw were disappointing.
That's the thing, the youtube videos ive seen also have done no justice compared to the actual live show. The energy of the crowd was constant the whole set, and the vocals were completely fine. Plus the new songs like "Congratulations" made it amazing.
And for favorite tracks from the bands I listed I would say
Neon Indian-Local Joke, Deadbeat Summer, 6669 Dr. Dog- From, The Girl, Shadow People Girls- Ghost Mouth, Headache, Substance Dirty Projectors- Cannibal Resource, Useful Chamber

Mgmt at bonnaroo last year was life changing. No Age while Randy was in a arm brace was absolutely great. Dr. Dog in what appeared to be a haunted old folks home, Never heard anything prettier in my time. and when I saw Girls, I wouldnt say they just played through their album in a un-reworked manner, it might have just been because they were happy to be back in San Francisco, but when I saw them on Valentine's Day they played a fantastic set with other songs and just great performances of everything they played.
and no one should miss neon indian. there'll be regret, at sometime in the future when Local Joke becomes the National anthem
I personally, due to recent experience, have to strongly urge anyone in search for a mindblowing experience to see girls and neon indian. Theyre the best acts ive seen this year. MGMT and Passion Pit will keep the feet moving, Then No Age, chune yARDS, dirty projectors, minus the bear???? This line-up is quite powerful.....
