I love the new album! I thought the same as Geno when I first heard it, but it doesn't take too many more listens to realize that all of the songs are great with classic Shins melodies and smart lyrics. I think their show is gonna be awesome.

So far I've been pretty spoiled by Sasquatch with my most favourite artists - it's true that them being there has had a large impact on what turned out to be my favourites anyways though. Point is, I love Sasquatch! I couldn't imagine a year going by without the 5 months of anticipation and music gathering that goes with it, along with the afterglow that lasts all summer. These boards play a big part in that for sure.
Wolfgang is gonna be awesome. He actually tends to play a lot of his own music during his sets (unlike...er MSTRKRFT) so its a good idea to check out his recent "Weekend In America" release. So much good stuff to be heard!
It's probably Excision. Yeah, I know, he's pretty heavy for Sasquatch, but Bassnectar is only a little less heavy really. Excision's "X" Tour new light/sound show is a big deal, and he was opening for Deadmau5 all last fall so it seems to make sense.
This would be a HUGE add by the way for all of the people who wanted more EDM. I can't wait to see who it is.
I think the coolest thing about this glowpocalypse as opposed to last year is that it will be in the amphitheatre where you can see EVERY glow item from wherever you are. Plus the stage lights won't be too bright for the glow either.
Is this unprecedented for main stage Sasquatch to have an EDM artist close (from previous years, that is)?
