Killer Mike was awesome...got to enjoy the show with cbats and sip on a bottle of Hennesey that KM passed into the crowd. He also went right into DDFH after I yelled it. Also cbats stole my weed.
Nice. I wish I could have made it over for that one. Did you get to experience his Sasquatch set? I was just watching youtube videos from it last night and found myself getting a little misty eyed all over again. It was some seriously powerful shit.
I liked when they were covering Method Man, but the last few I heard didn't do anything for me.
I think it's better than their last couple albums, but not as good as the first two. I say give it a listen. It makes me smile. Also, check out one of their live shows. They are an absolute blast, if you can stand being surrounded by the Hot Topic kids for a few hours.

It's every bit as good as their earlier stuff. Which is to say not intricate technical compositions with deep meaning, but just good immature fun. Many would argue that it's not technically "good" but I argue that it's not supposed to be. It's certainly not going to win them any new fans. But for people like me, for whom they have been a guilty pleasure for years, it's great. I guess what I'm trying to say is if you like their other stuff, check it out. If you don't, you won't like this either.

I know I'm late to the party, but I want to get in on this while it's still 2013. My list, off the top of my head, in no particular order:
Akron/Family - Sub Verses David Bowie - The Next Day Run the Jewels - Run the Jewels Daft Punk - Random Access Memories Fuck Buttons - Slow Focus The Knife - Shaking the Habitual Mindless Self Indulgence - How I Learned to Stop Giving a Shit and Love Mindless Self Indulgence Kanye West - Yeezus Danny Brown - Old Sigur Ros - Kveikur Deaf Heaven - Sunbather Pearl Jam - Lightning Bolt Marijuana Deathsquads - Oh My Sexy Lord Darkside - Psychic Melt Banana -Fetch Gogol Bordello - Pura Vida Conspiracy Deltron 3030 - Event II Tomahawk - Oddfellows The Dillinger Escape Plan - One Of Us Is The Killer The Devil Makes Three - I'm A Stranger Here
This indeed has been one hell of a year for music. I would like to express my deepest appreciation to this board and (almost) everyone on it for introducing me to so many great artists. There are several titles on my list that I otherwise never would have taken the time to listen to. Words cannot express... And all that sappy shit. Thanks.
Oh my fuck yes this is awesome! I'm definitely up for more John Talabot/Matthew Dear sized crowds in the dance tent. So much room to move around, and everyone in there seems to be really into the music and not just there for a SICK DROP.
Most definitely. There is absolutely no way that Darkside will not be there. After the way Pitchfork (justifiably) jizzed all over themselves in their review of Psychic, I imagine that guys are gonna be at every festival next year.

Fuck it, I'm in. This just sounds like to much fun. I had most of my music backed up to my Google music account anyway. I don't care if I have to download a playlist on my phone and take it to work to burn it there, I will make it happen.

I just read that Lupe Fiasco has a new album coming out "early 2014". He hasn't announced any tour dates behind it yet, but I think he would be perfect for Sasquatch. I could see him possibly headlining, or at least sub-headlining, one night.

I thought about that too. Like I said, I don't know how it would work, but it would be nice. There is also the possibility of two separate presales a couple months, one for each weekend. However it works, it stands to reason that the savings would be higher for someone buying passes to both weekends as they are taking a bigger risk and providing more advance capital for the festival organizers.

Personally, what I would like to see from the presale is some sort of flex ticket that would be good for either weekend, but you need to commit to one or the other after the lineups are announced. Not sure how it would work, but seems to me like the best way to do blind presale for 2 separate lineups, short of just buying passes to both.
So if they set up a separate price saving presale for each weekend, would you fellow festival addicts buy passes for both without seeing the lineup for either?
If I can swing it financially, I plan on buying presale tickets to both weekends. If one lineup turns out to be shite, I'll just cut someone a good deal on the pass for that weekend. But, honestly, the lineup would have to be pretty damn bad for me to skip either one, especially if I already bought the ticket.
