I see where Nick is coming from, but skipping one of the best live bands out there for a smaller bigfoot set would be a huge mistake in my personal opinion. Regardless if you like NIN or not, their shows are seriously killer.
That's fair. Bottom line is, I just can't justify seeing a band for their live performance alone. I listen to music, for, well, the music, and I don't like NIN's music. I've listened to a lot of it. Not a fan at all. So if there's a band I actually enjoy playing on another stage at the same time, that's where I'll be.
For the slow-minded superfans: I am not insulting NIN. They're probably great. I, personally, don't like them. This is not a dig at your musical taste or the band's artistic merit. It is a statement of preference. It will not change no matter how much you bitch. That is all.
And you're calling me pompous? I hope I never have the misforchune to meet your sorry ass.
I'm pompous for pointing out your poorly chosen words? I'm sorry that makes you so angry Nick. I very much dislike your opinion, but I will not resort to hate speech, and personal attacks.
Mercy me, I've made a dreadful mistake. Clearly I should never mention 2 band names in the same sentence ever again, or someone will flip their shit, talk to me like an imbecile, and call me pompous (twice).
Fuck you right in the mouth, you judgmental, arrogant jackass. You started this conversation with personal attacks.
I know I am in the minority but I could do without another NIN appearance at Sasquatch. I feel that by dialing it in and going with an already established headliner isn't in the spirit of Sasquatch. However I do understand the idea that the headliners sell the tickets and NIN would sell tickets.
I wouldn't go to their show but I'm not opposed to their headliner spot if there's a decent act on Bigfoot (a la Mumford vs Primus this past year).
Yeah, Sunday night is problematic, because I still live on that stupid island and my bike's out of commission. I also somehow spent over $250 last weekend. All I did was go to a show and play cards! I didn't even buy merch!
Add in the $60 I need to drop on a new crank and I'm brokeski unless I dip into Boarder House (tm) money.
Sorry guys. I am incredibly stupid with money, it seems.
I guess I was just thinking about Chromeo, who I view as about the same popularity as Cut Copy, and have both headlined the dance tent and performed an unforgettable afternoon set on the Main Stage. I was just picturing a similar situation. But regardless of when they played I'd be so stoked for them to be there, the only performance of theirs I've seen was an in-studio at KEXP.
