I keep telling myself that Thurston and Kim are going to make up and Sonic Youth will headline Sasquatch one of these years. It's a hopeless fantasy, but it's mine. I saw them at the Gorge back in 95 and it was fucking incredible. They really are a band that has to be experienced live to truly appreciate.
The last time I almost fell asleep at a show was Sonic Youth about seven years ago.
...and then I remembered that I have to do that thing where I only listen to one non-Sasquatch band for the entire week leading up to Sasquatch. This year I chose SONIC YOUTH, so be ready for lots of them in this thread.
Sonic Youth - Goo Sonic Youth - Dirty Sonic Youth - Experimental Jet Set, Trash & No Star Sonic Youth - Washing Machine Ciccone Youth - The Whitey Album
Stop trying to pretend to like Sonic Youth AND Ween.
As for Tame Impala -- I tried like hell to watch that show, but they seriously went on like, what, like an hour late at least? Fuck that, I walked back to camp with Floor Tim and that was the right decision. It should have been totally possible to watch almost all of both sets. I WILL say that, objectively speaking, the EVENT STATUS of seeing Sigur Ros on the Gorge main stage under a full moon on an early summer evening makes it pretty difficult to rationalize the decision to have been doing anything else at the time.

Seems sketch? Anyone else get this? I think I'm about to get a bag of internet troll poop sent to my door.
If a flaming bag appears in your porch, don't stomp on it to put it out.
