The Pet Shop Boys and Motorhead were the best things I saw all weekend. The Pet Shop Boys took me on a journey where I couldn't stop dancing and Motorhead had me standing there with my jaw on the floor (when I wasn't playing the hell out of the air guitar or air drums). Don't expect much from Lemmy but the guitarist is amazing and that was likely the most impressive drumming I have ever seen. Oh, and Slash played like half the set with them.
Both sets were greatly helped by the fact they were in a very uncrowded tent and everyone there was there to see them. Two of the best crowds of the weekend. Total opposite from NMH where half way through the set a constant stream of teenage girls started pushing to the front for a good spot at Lama del Ray. Kinda ruined the end of the set and I almost threw an elbow or two.
I only saw 16 full/ mostly full sets because of the 'ahh, there's always weekend 2' mentality, but I feel like I did fairly well staying until every stage was empty every night.
Outkast was ok, but I was pretty bitter that Andre mentions Prince is backstage halfway through the set and then Prince is nowhere to be seen.
I am so fucking glad founders tickets sold out so fast. I would have gotten one, but I was not expecting the sell out that happened.
I can't even comprehend the stupid behind this. I was 99% convinced that the major delay for the lineup was some contractual BS where Outside Lands got to announce an act first. This does not seem to be the case.
How do they not even have the land permit? I though Live Nation had a 10 year lease on the land after the first one. I assumed they sold that to these guys. What an amazing clusterfuck...
Still can't decide if I want Pemberton to be decent since I probably won't be going, but it would be nice if it was successful so I could attend in following years as Julysquatch seems to be permanently dead.
No offence but why do you want to meet a bunch of strangers from the internet?
You have 5 posts so it's not like anyone here knows anything about you. The Smith's sig is nice though.
Shucks, I dunno *shrugs like a timid 5-year old*...I was thinking if no one has friends who like Robyn/Royksopp...and didn't really want to go alone...meeting people from the board could be cool 'cause we already have something in common (we all like the same music)??? It was just an idea *retreats into turtle shell*
Sorry, I didn't mean for that to come off as confrontational, I was generally curious why someone would think internet strangers would be better company than any other random strangers at a concert.
When I first joined the board I had no intention to meet anyone else on here, I just wanted to be able to talk about Sasquatch more.
Everyone I've met from here have been great people, many of whom I now consider to be good friends.
If you want to meet people from here, post more. We can always use more opinions and whatnot. It can be a bit intimidating at first but just remember that this is only the internet and basically every person on here (even the really nice ones) are way nicer in person.
If I end up going I have no problem meeting up with new people from here, it's just nice to get to know them a little from the safety of my dark, damp basement.
