I'd argue for anyone that is on the fence for Death Grips to consider the amazing abilities of Zach Hill. He is legitimately one of the best drummers out there and I think he's still touring with just his bass and tom. They're chuned super low and just brings an extra primal feel to it all. I saw them in Seattle a few months back and it was one of the best shows of my life.
The Tim and Eric conflict was Animal Collective. That is one of a handful of bands that would prevent me from seeing at least part of Tim and Eric.
Haha yep! And now the regret is actually seeping back in. But I've seen Anco a couple times before and after that year, so i don't feel as bad.
I'm hoping I'll get to see Brett Gelman and maybe Nick Offerman too. I've heard Birbiglia doesn't have much new material though. And I'm surprised Mande has done as well as he has, considering he doesn't really have his delivery down very well. Very funny dude though. He writes some great material.

Do you guys go to the comedy shows ever? I'm hoping some really shit stuff is going on when Kyle Kinane is performing because his new comedy album is one of the best albums I've heard the last year or so...
Don't most DJs/EDM acts do a lot of retreading on gigs though? I mean, guys like Diplo will go every which way on any given week and have residencies in places like Las Vegas. I'm sure Snack's could get them to go up there twice...
AZ is not the curator of Paradiso, so you're probably not going to get any crossovers at all between the two festivals. They are competitors, essentially, and it's quite possible that as the Paradiso festival continues to grow and thrive we will see a more scaled back offering of DJs at Sasquatch. I think AZ went a brilliant route though, and absolutely stacked the electronic based groups/bands. Great move to still get the dance crowd in there like they have been the past few years.
I'm also pretty convinced that deadmau5 will be headlining Paradiso now. He's still working on his next monstrosity that he'll be touring with and Paradiso would be a great fit for it.
True, I'm probably underestimating how cutthroat booking festivals is. And I definitely agree with you on the dance bookings. John Talabot and Matthew Dear had two of the best dance albums of last year IMO. They don't have the wobs or the bass but it still has those vibes. Plus Anzari & III and Disclosure are great new deep house acts.
I am for sure not disappointed by the lack of shit like PL or Deadmau5. I would have gone because they were closing, but that's it.

Are you guys opposed to the Banana Shack? Starfucker brought out a bunch of sexdolls during their Friday set, which was pretty fun. If he's not late night, I'd fight for Baauer because trap seems perfect for this kind of tomfoolery.
