Am I the only person on the board that doesn't care for Jack White? I respect the hell out of him and recognize his importance, but nothing he's ever done has really grabbed my undivided attention.
That's exactly how I feel about Jack White. I'll still probably catch his set, because I know better than to pass on seeing a legitimate rock god at the Gorge. But I can count on one hand the number of songs he's written that do anything for me.
This is me also. Definitely a master, without question, but I've just always been "meh" towards most of the White Strips/Raconteurs catalogue, and just plain don't like Dead Weather. Regardless I'll probably watch because, well, fuck. He's gonna put on a hell of a performance, and I'm probably going to be too drunk to do much else except stumble around on the hill yelling "aiYEEEE Icky THUMP" to every song.
Meg White being there would make me have to re-evaluate my "I dont come to Sasquatch to masturbate" clause. Do the Sasquatch big screens effectively capture jiggle?
Jack White and his awful redundant rock and roll songs. Pretty Lights and their stupid EDM that's not probably fun to dance too. Bon Iver and his/their unbearable songwriting lack of enough a-list material to headline a festival (although this should hopefully lead to the light at the end of the tunnel: their Bjorrito cover). Beck and his dumb being one of the most creative musicians in the past 2 decades 2 decades ago.
I'm selling my tickets fucking stoked anyways, you guys.
Fixed it up.
The B-man has a point, but in the end, it don't matta. I have a feeling Beck and Jack White going to pull out all the fuckin stops to prove their worthiness as top-tier headliners.
Bon Iver, while arguably not headliner material, will undoubtedly put on a sublime performance just because that is what they do, and with the Gorge as a backdrop they really can do no wrong. Pretty Lights, well....I'd only really be stoked on an EDM headliner if it was Daft Punk but fact is that shit'll be one helluva partay. And if his stage setup is awesomely wicked, all the better.
Seriously. John C Reily better be doing some Sasquatch shit on stage during Tenacious D's set.
This is making me wonder if Dave Grohl will be filling in as the drummer. John C. Reilly on drums would be wicked too though.
I really hope the lineup takes advantage of its crossover potential.
I was wondering about Grohl too, but figured that's just wishful thinking. I don't think he's ever played with them live. It would be fuckin grand, though...and Dave did seem to have a fuckin good time last year (lolbeers) so maybe he'd be down.
If not, then I definitely hope Col. Sanders will be there.
The only reason I'd prefer a Loud Friday as opposed to an Electronic one is that the 25th is my birthday and there's a higher likelihood of bands that I enjoy playing the former than the belt sander. I'm still choked I missed seeing Explosions in the Sky as a birthday show in 2009.
Somebody up there obviously listened so there's no way I'm passing that up. It'll be weird transitioning from them to something like Girl Talk but fuck it. I'm sure the drugs will help.
