It does. But Built to Spill played the perfect set last night, we will see 'em again at Sasquatch and if we can't find any extras, I'm going to see Ben Folds 5 instead. So, all in all, I don't have too much to complain about.

Damn! Launch party sold out quick, our friends were denied. They said the line was 5 blocks long, they were in the 3rd block and it sold out before they even got very close to the box office, so if anyone else got lucky and has extras Burrito and I will beg at your feet.

My facebook just blew up with people freaking out about Prince headlining Sasquatch. I guess it was posted on last.fm and then taken down shortly thereafter (so this is probably still considered 'rampant speculation'). I think they posted several bands but everyone just was Prince and went ballistic. Trying to see if anyone got a screen shot...
So I spent the better part of my day listening to Sigur Ros so as to prepare myself. How in the nine hells does this fit in at a festival? 40,000 people with their party face on just doesn't seem befitting of a band that plays classical music badly(whatever that's what it sounds like).
1) Believe it or not, this shit can get pretty heavy live. Talkin’ silence to violence. Patience grasshopper, enjoy the slow build. 2) (DRUGS) WHALES. ZYLOPHONES. BOWED GUITAR. Turn that shit up, it’s meant to be listened to loudly. 3) Not sure why it won't allow me to embed the video but here's the link www.youtube.com/watch?v=yWYH6frn3og
She & Him announced a tour starting in June today for a new record. They're pretty much a lock right?
Am I the only one who thinks She & Him is boring as fuck? God damn, that set in 2010? Zooey Deschannel looked SO uncomfortable (I get it, it's her "thing" to pretend to be sheepish/awkward/cute, I just don't get why other people find that endearing). She also looked like she might faint at any moment from malnutrition, I was seriously concerned that if the wind kicked up she would have been blown into the gorge. At least that would have been interesting.
EDIT: Oh, I see, this conversation already happened over in the Rumors thread.
