I almost forgot about this song. The Crow Soundtrack got me through some shit as a teenager. I've never been a huge fan of The Cure, but the possibility of them playing this song has me very excited about their set.
The whole Gorge singing along to "Fuck Her Gently" was pretty great. I'm down for that repeat.
Fuck, I wish I had been there for that. That was the last year I didn't go. I'll never forget the regret I felt that Memorial Day sitting home knowing what was happening at the Gorge. I swore then I wouldn't miss another one, regardless of the lineup.
That Shamir song on the Spotify playlist bugs the hell out of me. Not sure if the other stuff is as bad, but not sure if it's good either.
I listened to his album when it came out because everyone was raving about it, but I'm not sure I even made it all the way through. It just didn't do it for me. Kinda sounds like it would be a lot better in a live setting, though. Of course, most music is.
Small sample size, I know, but is it irrational to believe that we will see up to 3 additions Friday, 7 Saturday, 4 Sunday, and 6 Monday? 20 total? If you even look back at 2012 (18/35/35/35), there was a lineup of 123 artists. The lineup is definitely thin at the moment from a numbers perspective, and with it being announced a month in advance it should be interesting to see how this all goes down before Memorial Day weekend.
Thanks. I hadn't actually compared the numbers with previous years, but I knew it felt light. I had been meaning to compare this year's launch #'s with last year's since there was a steady stream of late adds last year adding up to the big Sleater-Kinney announcement. It makes sense that the lineup would be even less finished this year on account of being announced almost a full month early. Definitely interested to see what "& more" means for us this year.
Four Tet is going to play at the same time as Sufjan's sunset main stage set because of course that would happen.
Smurfjam at sunset, Four Tet late night. So I say, so shall it be.
Edit: Maybe Jamie XX late night Bigfoot and Four Tet closes the dance tent. Either way, no conflicts with Sufjan. Grimes, on the other hand, headlining the Bigfoot could be a problem. And every one of them will probably overlap Florence somehow. Monday night will be a heartbreaker no matter how we slice it.
So uh, while I was working with the lineup poster and the blank version of it being used as the website background I noticed a peculiar difference between the two...
That shape is just right for three letters with a longer word under them. And the placement is right for a top tier headliner. It's true that Sasquatch wouldn't be the second show that a band like LCD would announce for their big reunion tour, but once they announce the rest of the tour schedule... Could be that part of the LCD deal was that Snacks & Co couldn't say anything until Murphy & Co made the rest of their announcement. Could be I'm reaching here. I'm certainly not saying it will happen. I'm just saying it could happen.
