Hey guys, So I decided to make a profile just so I could jump on this bandwagon here.
I come from Calgary, Alberta up in the great frozen wastes of Canada. I try to get out of the country at least once a year during my summer break from University to keep my sanity. I've never had the chance to go to Sasquatch before.
I was just browsing the internet the day the lineup was released when my jaw dropped: Death From Above 1979 was playing the Gorge! They were one of the bands at my first concert when I was 15 which began the drastic change into the music nerd and musician I am today. I've always regretted never seeing them again since then, and now my goal for this year is to see them play now that they're back together.
As I continued reading the lineup, I couldn't believe it. So many bands I've wanted to see but never come through Calgary are playing! At last count, I want to go to see 27 bands on the lineup.
Of course, I wasn't able to scrape together the cash in time to buy a ticket, but I would love to go unbelievably so! If anyone out there would sell me just one 4-day pass, I would gladly write a song dedicated to you, if you'd like. I'll bring my 12-string acoustic along to the Gorge and play the song just so you know you're my bloody hero for selling me a ticket!
