Since this will be my first Sasquatch, I will be wearing my cons that I have had for over ten years. They are retired but still come out on special occasions and for places that I have never been before.
Wow, Robyn or Matt and Kim? I'm going to have to think about that for a good long time.
Think about who is going to tour more. Is Robyn doing a full US tour? Matt & Kim have been playing nonstop all over the nation for a while now. I'm pretty sure they might come some place that is close to you.
In saying that, don't think I'm trying to convince you not to see Matt & Kim. They are a fucking blast.

Alright, I'm going to participate in this thread but in my own way.
These are my top tens bands that I am interested in seeing but have not seen before(in no particular order):
1.) Wye Oak - Has anyone else listened to The Knot? Talk about a beautiful sound. I honestly don't know how someone could listen to it and not want to see them live.
2.) Modest Mouse - If there is a band that reminds me of high school, this is it. I remember sitting in the bed of my truck with a few select friends and even a special girl while listening to The Moon & Antarctica. I never got a chance to see them live and have always regretted it.
3.) Old 97's - I went to University in Texas. Just north of Dallas to be exact. This is definitely one band that reminds me of the great fun and friends that I had in the small town of Denton.
4.) Wolf Parade - How can I not see a Canadian band that has actually influenced others? And, I mean, they're like breaking up, right?
5.) DFA1979 - See above, except instead of breaking up, getting back together. K?
6.) Local Natives - Gorilla Manor was one of my most listened to albums last year. They remind me of a much more sad Guster and since Guster doesn't really tour that much anymore I will have to see Local Natives.
7.) Jenny & Johnny - I cheated a little with this pick because I've seen Jenny Lewis at Coachella but she has such a beautiful voice and is quite talented I'm going to have to see what she and her boyfriend have come up with.
8.) The Flaming Lips - Who doesn't want to watch them? This is my first Sasquatch and I know they've played the festival before but I figure this will be as good of a time to watch them as any. A quintessential Sasquatch experience, if you will.
9.) Surfer Blood - Another great band with another album that was in my top listens for last year. Probably a band that won't be coming around my parts anytime soon.
10.) The Drums - You want to have some fun? Listen to the Drums. You won't regret it. Want to whistle along to a song? Listen to Let's Go Surfing. You won't regret it.
