Pearl Jam - Vs (I can't believe this turns 22 today. Fuck I feel old).
I remember rushing to the music store after school to buy that one the day it came out, back when the name was still Five Against One. I wish I still had that copy; it'd probably be worth something today.

Just checked out the rumored Pearl Jam tour dates and I must say it works nicely to tour the southeast/east coast for a month or two, take two weeks off, then kick off the west coast tour by headlining Sasquatch. Still not likely, but my scientific method of just making shit up puts their statistical probability somewhere around 10% at this point.
As amazing as this would be, I highly doubt that it will ever happen. Which is really unfortunate. Pearl Jam can sell out multiple days at The Gorge on their own, plus they are rumored to be playing 15-20 dates through the winter in the eastern U.S., ending in Toronto the first weekend in May. If the rumors are true, that's a hefty tour for them and I just don't see them hitting The Gorge immediately after that. This is also their 25th anniversary, so they will more than likely have some sort of bash in the PNW later in the year.
Just my thoughts on the subject. But being that Pearl Jam at The Gorge is the #1 show on my bucket list, I would like you to be right.
If there was any festival that could get them, I like to think it would be Sasquatch just because of the PNW connection. Mike McCready played the national anthem at Sasquatch a couple years ago, so that's a step in the right direction. But I do agree, the odds of it actually happening are next to nothing. Their propensity for 3+ hour sets and reputation as one of the best live bands in the world exclude them from almost all festivals in general, but it's fun to dream.

I was internally speculating about Big Grams. I think it would be cool as hell if they played, I just wasn't sure if they were actually performing live together or if the album was just a one off thing.
This is what I'm saying. I'll bet you a beer they sub-headline the Bigfoot (if there is such a thing). Maybe we're getting a bit particular with our speculation here. I think we all agree there's a good chance they'll play at some point during the weekend and probably not at 1:30 in the afternoon again.
I'm pretty sure CHVRCHES will sub-sub-headline the main stage next year. I saw their new show last night, and they're ready for that big of a stage. And Lauren is one of the most charming and engaging band leaders out there.
I could see them playing again, but going from 1:30 Sunday afternoon to sub-headlining seems like quite a leap.

Pure rampant speculation but Arctic Monkeys should be working on a new album and I would love to see them back, possibly even in a headlining slot. I didn't appreciate them enough last time, but AM has grown into one of my favorite albums of the last few years and they're about due to come back.
, went to My Morning Jacket last night and going again tonight... They put on a fantastic set and those videos from 2010 still leave me in awe. I figure with the rise of the teenieboppers and all they'd be maybe sub-headliners but my theory of big Paramount/Moore acts in the fall coming back for 'Squatch wants to see them at the Gorge.
I like the way you think. MMJ would be most welcome after they played all of the festivals except Sasquatch this year.
I've been really digging this one the last few days. I've got a good feeling about him playing Sasquatch next year. He was on the Julysquatch lineup and never rescheduled. The timing would be just right with this album.
