If by effective, you mean rushing into a room yelling at the top of his lungs "you are dumb, you are babby, your opnions don't matter" shitting himself and then leaving as everyone looks around and goes, wtf was that. Then yeah, we got pwnd, hard.
I see where Nick is coming from, but skipping one of the best live bands out there for a smaller bigfoot set would be a huge mistake in my personal opinion. Regardless if you like NIN or not, their shows are seriously killer.
That's fair. Bottom line is, I just can't justify seeing a band for their live performance alone. I listen to music, for, well, the music, and I don't like NIN's music. I've listened to a lot of it. Not a fan at all. So if there's a band I actually enjoy playing on another stage at the same time, that's where I'll be.
For the slow-minded superfans: I am not insulting NIN. They're probably great. I, personally, don't like them. This is not a dig at your musical taste or the band's artistic merit. It is a statement of preference. It will not change no matter how much you bitch. That is all.
I am babby, immature, self-entitled, closeminded 12 year-old, however I fully agree with you.
I heavily research before every fest I go to and in previous years NIN has lost out during the principle research period and I have seen someone else... I'm pretty sure that if they are scheduled in 2014 I will feel the same way as I have in years past. That is the beauty of multi stage festivals is that you don't have to be forced to watch bands that you don't particularly like.
Wonk really needs to work on his trolling, what is the point of trawlling if the only one getting the "lelz" is the troll. People are trying to have a civil conversation of what-if's and personal opinions and he comes in sounding like a neckbeared butthurt basement dweller. It's okay if you need attention dude, I'm sure someone will give you that hug that you need.
It seems like Neutral Milk will probably be at julysquatch as well, but are not big ticket sellers, they are spank material for us indie nerds.
Why not May? They are playing Primavera Sound the weekend after. I think it would make sense that they play MaySquatch. I keep expecting them to announce more dates in their crazy touring schedule that will include the PNW, but I guess they are probably just holding out because of Spring festival dates.
I was mistaken and thought that Primavera fell on the same weekend as it usually does, however it does not, and it seems like their last date before the 28th in Portugal is Feb 21st in New Orleans, so your theory holds some weight. Depending on their trajectory after their two Portugal dates, if they come back state side I say July, if not than it is likely that they may do May and possibly even Coachella, due to how open their schedule is from Feb-Late May.
It will be very interesting to see what the Primavera lineup is going to be, because of years past where some bands did the fly in thing and some "refused" based on not wanting to come stateside just to play Sasquatch. I feel like we will get the opportunity to see more crossover than in year's past.

I know I am in the minority but I could do without another NIN appearance at Sasquatch. I feel that by dialing it in and going with an already established headliner isn't in the spirit of Sasquatch. However I do understand the idea that the headliners sell the tickets and NIN would sell tickets.
I knew I should have mentioned that I was going to that show, but I didn't think anyone else was...shame on me. Next time, Cheese, next time.
I feel the same way, I found out about it in this thread, and completely spaced it until we were pregaming in our hotel. I did happen to meet some pretty chill people one of whom had been to 5 'squatches and we had a good time killing time drinking beers before the show.
