I was listening to Kveikur last night and allowing myself to dream about the possibility of experiencing them at the Gorge again, but I'm pretty sure that was a once in a lifetime deal. That night changed my life.
Speaking of side projects...El Vy is a lock, no? The National and Menomena being Sasquatch alumni...just seems like a fit.
That would be great. I've been listening to their album a lot lately. I know they're playing some shows together, but I don't know how long they're planning on touring. I would like to think that Matt & The National would be back to work on a new album by next summer. And really, as cool as El Vy would be, I would rather have a new National album.
I am guessing there is no chance in hell that this will happen but I saw that Neurosis is doing some shows with Shellac for their 30th anniversary in April. If we could get them (or just one of them) on the lineup I would be beyond thrilled.
I guess that is April in Netherlands and March in SF. Probably no way.
EDIT: It's not all bad. Nothing particularly exciting at the top, but I would be happy with Alabama Shakes, HAIM, Grimes, Foals, Portugal. The Man, Big Grams, Kurt Vile, Vince Staples, and Bully at Sasquatch. (Run the Jewels and Courtney Barnett too, but I doubt they'd repeat.) And I think Florence + the Machine would make a pretty good headliner.
Really digging Nicolas Jaar right now. Checked his tour dates and he doesn't have a bunch going on but late April he does have a Las Vegas date. Nothing around that date but I am hoping he is in the dance tent.
