I've been having troubles understanding the appeal of Hot Chip... just not my style of music I guess. But the new song they released today, Huarache Lights, has got me thinking I should give them a second chance. Really like it.
The crossover number might be obsolete if one of those artists was booked from Coachella but cancelled.
This is the way my theories are leaning right now. I feel like there's a chance that Florence and her glorious Machine once sat upon the top of the Friday lineup but had to cancel for some reason. But who knows? Nothing in the world makes sense any more.
Of course this is just speculation, but TV On The Radio cancelled a ton of European shows due to illness/injury just before the Sasquatch lineup announcement. Although their current North American tour has not been affected by this (yet) my thoughts were maybe they backed out since the public commitment was not made yet. Doesn't really matter now I guess, but that was my train of thought at the time.
Help a brother out? When I was logged out I could see Pea's magnificent work he did with the site, but when I logged in it went back to the old brown theme? I'm on an iPhone, anyone know how to remedy this?
My dudes!! We got Bishop Nehru... NehruvianDOOM! Seriously, anyone into hip hop needs to get on board with this MF Doom project. This kid is going to kill it, so stoked I get to see him live. 24 hours in from the lineup announcement and I've found my first hidden gem. I love Sasquatch season!
Still have to do some research but for now I can see at least 15 that I won't be missing: Modest Mouse Kendrick Lamar Schoolboy Q Will Butler The Decemberists St. Vincent Gogol Bordello Jose Gonzalez Pete Davidson Ought The War On Drugs Jenny Lewis Royal Blood Run the Jewels Action Bronson
Well after taking some time to really let this sink in, I can honestly say I'm not disappointed in the lineup. Sure I'm disappointed that the two musicians I wanted to see the most (Bjork and NMH) didn't make the bill, but besides that I think that the lay out of the poster is what threw me off at first. We all knew Kendrick Lamar was a strong possibility, as well as Modest Mouse. There was talk of The Decemberists headlining as well. Robert Plant is definitely the one surprise act which Sasquatch always hands us each year. Move The Decemberists up on the poster, as well as a handful of other acts, and push Lana Del Rey down the poster a bit, below St.Vincent and a few others, and things start to look like a festival worthy of some praise. Kendrick, Modest Mouse, The Decemberists and Robert Plant, seem like decent and legit Sasquatch headliners to me. Not to mention a very exciting undercard! From Jenny Lewis to Will Butler, Pete Davidson is hysterical! And there is some some serious rap game this year as well. I'm not going to let time slots fool me into thinking that this lineup is less than worthy of Sasquatch. I'm all in for 2015... But still, r.i.p Bjorksquatch.
The Jesus and Mary Chain are playing Austin Psych Fest May 8-10th and then Vancouver @ The Vogue Theater May 13th. Haven't found any other dates yet but seems reasonable to consider them a possibility.
