1. The Flaming Lips - One of the best live bands I've ever seen AND playing Soft Bulletin? If you don't plan on seeing this show, you should stay at home during Sasquatch. 2. DFAMCMLXXIX - I can finally take this off my bucket list 3. Wolf Parade - Apologies to Arcade Fire, but this is the best band from Canada. Snacks gave the band a giant fuck you for giving them such a shitty slot for their last show maybe ever 4. Deerhunter - Arguably one of the best bands out there right now. Everything Cox touches is golden. 5. Flying Lotus - Missed his show twice already, I won't make that mistake for the third time. 6. Major Lazer - One of the most insane live shows I've ever been to. I love Wilco but this show is a must see IMO. 7. Modest Mouse. IF Brock and Co are on top of their game (which is a big IF) this would be Top 3 for me. Here's to hoping they play more The Lonesome Crowded West/The Moon and Antarctica and less material after 2001. 8. Black Mountain - One of the most underrated live bands I've seen 9. Beach House - One of my favorite bands ever since I saw them open for Wolf Parade back in 08'..great live show 10. Iron & Wine...could put many other good acts here but I've never got the chance to see these guys.
Honarable Mention: The Antlers (most likely won't be playing Hospice material), GBV, Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, Sleigh Bells, Aloe Blacc.
