To contribute to the discussion regarding The National, I had a same issue with getting into them as well. Even Boxer was difficult for me to listen more than once. High Violet is the album that clicked with me...Especially the song Sorrow. Have you listened to some of their older songs? I have no idea if they still play them but Slipping Husband and Available on Sad Songs for Dirty Lovers made me go "Holy shit this guy can scream".
Not that I'm attending in July, but I just thinking, with Pearl Jam playing overseas on July 3 and 5 and Soundgarden playing July 4, does that mean that Soundgarden will be playing without Matt Cameron on drums? He's such and integral part of both bands I can't see either playing without him. Or will he jet across the ocean, travel to Sasquatch and then go back again for the next day's Pearl Jam show?

Okay, I feel like I gave St. Lucia a lot of shit on Monday because of how antsy I was about the lineup but after listening to them...they're pretty great. Looking forward to seeing them at JulySquatch!
