Kendrick also came out over a half hour late for his set at last year's Pemberton...hopefully since he's headlining that won't be an issue. I mean, he's the first fucking name on the poster.
Can also attest to to extreme awesomeness and down-to-earthitude of both halves of RTJ. I've rubbed Killer Mike's belly for luck way too many times.
This is surprising to hear. I've seen Kendrick twice, once at free show sponsored by The Fader and then opening for Kanye on the Yeezus tour and he was incredible both times. Great energy, knows how to work the crowd and had a live band for the Yeezus tour. I'll be shocked and majorly disappointed if he doesn't shut the festival down in a major way.
Oh, make no mistake, every last one of the forty or so minutes he played was fuckin' dynamite. Just not as many minutes as I'd hoped.
My initial reaction was one of mild disappointment, but really, there are hella bands on that list that I love, that I know put on excellent shows, or that I have heard put on excellent shows. I imagine once the late adds come in, on whatever level they may be, the lineup will look a bit more well rounded (R.I.P. Loud Friday.)
Speaking of loud: kinda disappointed in the lack of heavier music this year, especially since we seemed to be trending in that direction with Torche/Red Fang in 2013 and Deafheaven/Sandrider last year.
Just to bring it up again: i think TV on The Radio is a pretty likely headliner candidate. I see them in the same position the National was in late 2013, where people weren't sure if they were quite up to that status yet. But they last played in 09, and this new album is about as dancey/stadium-ready as they've ever been.
At the very least, I bet they're one of the Primavera crossovers next year.
Man, Old Man EL-P is so much more considerate than Young Man EL-P was. Can't even beef properly. "I think it's a good nature thing, I love this guy's music...SUCK MY DICK...with no disrespect." That better have lead into All Due Respect.
very pleased that we do this so early. keeps the fantasies fresh. Also, Sasquatch 2015 should be interesting for the sole reason of this year's double-festival debacle. I bet it's just the one weekend and four days again this year.
I'll eat my hat if Spoon don't subheadline a night. and to answer your question, it's a delightful little yarmulke and it'll probably go down easy.
In that vein, I'm wondering how much of the lineup next year will consist of Julysquatch reparations. I get that it's a business and these things happen but still. I wouldn't be surprised to see Cloud Nothings, Foxygen, Action Bronson, and maybe hopefully please Fuck Buttons on the bill
DFA1979 also would not leave me shocked, but would leave me happy. I'll reiterate it as many times as you'll let me: their set at 2011 was one of my favourite Squatch shows period. And The Physical World is my sex jam at the moment.
I expect someone from the TDE crew will make an appearance...and in terms of rap, Shabazz Palaces are due for another appearance. Maybe main stage this time?
Would be very down for either Foo Fighters or Modest Mouse to return to headline, but it was only three years ago that they both did 2011...
and then these have all crossed my mind:
