We saw What Is It? twice, and It Is Fine! EVERYTHING IS FINE! once (although I've been dying to see it again). Workin' wit da Grips is exactly the kind of thing Crispin would agree to do.
You ever hear the album he recorded? Personal favorite of mine.
Yes! I did hear it. And I have two of his books - ones that he read from when I saw "What Is It" - I haven't seen "It is Fine..." yet and I am dying to see it. Is he still touring with it at all? I definitely don't feel like I am artistically brilliant enough to understand the meaning of his work, but it is amazingly entertaining. I agree - he and Death Grips would be an amazing match.

I had no where else to post this, but I just learned that Death Grips are trying to collaborate with Crispin Glover for a video. Not sure if any pf you guys have seen any part of Glover's odd-to-say-the-least film trilogy, but it is amazingg. Might have moved Death Grips up to the act I am most excited to see this year.

Sorry - last one for the day, I promise. Not sure why this one struck a chord with me. It could be because the video reminds me of David Lynch (I might have a David Lynch hangup) - I half-way expected a backwards-talking dwarf in a suit to jump out during the scene with all the people sitting on a couch. Anyhow, this could be a really interesting new-to-me find as well.

I may be alone in this, but I was SUPER disappointed in Citizen Cope's set in 2007. He seemed too stoned to connect with the audience in any way and he sounded so bad live that I have had trouble listening to him since. I could be crazy though.
- Street Sweeper Social Club was truly dreadful performance. Main stage set in the afternoon in 2009, and they sounded awful, the crowd wasn't into it, and it almost became a comedy set because we were all making fun of them. Also they couldn't stop introducing themselves after every song. Maybe because their name is also terrible?
So, I agree that Street Sweeper Social Club was bad. However, I forced myself to enjoy it and tried to see the humor in their comical broken-record name announcement. I completely understand I was one of the few who didn't hate them. I think I was just too excited about seeing Tom Morello. As for Mars Volta, I missed that set - sounds like it was a good thing!

aktbird - isn't she amazing? I've watched a couple of interviews with her as well and she seems really cool. From what I hear, she puts on a great show. She's near the top of my 'must see' list for this year.
Part of me is wondering just how far I can push my husband - he is a Sasquatch Virgin and I'd like for him to enjoy it enough to come back with me again :-)
Most of us here will say that "the people" is half (if not more) of the reason they go to Sasquatch each year. Think of what your own reasons are going for each year. I'm betting your answer is going to be very similar. So, in that case, why would you think that isolating your husband away from 50% of what makes this festival so special into a hotel room is going to convert him into a regular attendee?
I am not a camper, I loathe it even, but ever since my first Sasquatch I can't wait to bust out my tent for any music festival. Try Wildhorse if you want a little more comfort, but don't deprive your husband of the essential Sasquatch experience his first time out.
