Don't cross at small border crossings, i crossed at the Waterton/Glacier national park and two old grannies took there job way to seriously and searched my whole car for drugs (i think i was the only car to pull through for the last hour and a bit). I also crossed in cranbrook once for the 07 sasquatch which has a duty free shop were you can purchase cheap alcohol.
the Constantines are doing a cross canada tour with the Weakerthans they end there tour on May 4th. It would be great if both bands could make it to sasquatch even though Weakerthans aren't that big in the US.
Here is black mountain's tour schedule, looks like them and side project Pink Mountain Tops are 100% not coming .

I'm like 87% sure meatloaf will headline playing the entire Bat out of Hell II: Back into Hell album get ready for some 1993 rocking!!! I looked on his website and what a surprise he is not doing anything on the 26th of may which lead me to his wikipedia page only to find it does not mention anything about how he will not be there, i have now come to the conclusion that he will in fact travel to the N.W to play sasquatch! I don't know about you but I'm excited!!!
Let the debate begin on how excited and happy we are about this stunning find! Can't wait for the gorge to all sing "I'd Do Anything for Love (But I Won't Do That)"!!!
It seems to me that the headliners are going to be:
No Doubt- on there website it says they are touring festivals and out door amphitheaters starting in may and it's being produced by live nation, obviously that's not a confirmation but if i was a betting man i could see them headlining sunday. I'm not a huge fan of there music but i still think they would be a band that at least would put put up a entertaining show. As a side note my prediction is that Yeah Yeah Yeahs will be on before them (no clue if they will be there but i liked the idea of having two female lead singers follow each other).
Kings of Leon: there is a lot of rumors surrounding them and i guess i could stand listening to "Sex on Fire". After headlining Glastonbury they are now more than qualified to be in the head lining spot. I could see them doing a Saturday. Something like PB & J will "open" for them.
No idea on the third headliner, although as much as i hate the idea of this, it would not surprise me to see a 2 day sasquatch this year although thats just a wild guess.
