Yob - Catharsis Yob - The Illusion of Motion Yob - the Unreal Never Lived Yob - Atma
Have you listened to these guys a lot? Do you have a recommendation for the uninitiated?
I heard their name tossed around a few years ago, but never really listened to them til just now. Absolutely loving them the last few days. They should be a perfect warmup for Tool. There is not a lot of variation in their sound across all the albums, so pretty much any one will give you a good feel for their sound.
I didn't see the version of the poster with Sasquatch on it, so I was thinking no "live" show, but yeah that doesn't look good. More likely instead of him not playing, the day he plays will get moved. His live show will probably be a little to big for the dance tent too, so he'll most likely get moved to a late slot.
My original thought, before the I saw the Italy situation, was that he would move to a late night Bigfoot set and I would freak out accordingly. Even if he plays Sunday night in Italy, that's a 12 hour flight, plus drive time from the Gorge to the airport, plus stage teardown, setup, and sound check. Moving Sasquatch too Friday night would interfere with Big Gigantic and piss me off even more. May would be a possibility, but as you pointed out, there is really nowhere to put them without pooping someone else. My only consolation in this is the thought that somewhere someone in an office is freaking out too and frantically making phone calls trying to get this resolved. I'm hoping for some official word on the situation in the next week.

It appears that The Bloody Beetroots Live are scheduled to headline Kappa FuturFestival in Italy on July 5, the same day they are scheduled for Sasquatch. I had hoped the poster I saw was a misprint, but a trip to KFF's website shows that they are quite proud of the headliner they just announced. This could be a problem.
Also, every one of you needs to listen to Rodriguez and watch Searching For Sugarman on Netflix if you haven't already.
I've been listening to a little of his stuff and enjoying it so far. Looking forward to digging derper. I looked for the documentary on Netflix a couple weeks ago and it wasn't there to watch instantly. I did, however, watch A Band Called Death and that one is fucking great. Such a cool story for those guys.

I actually feel really sorry for that girl. That's weird for me because I generally hate everyone and enjoy seeing then humiliated, pained, and otherwise uncomfortable. But something about that face and the way she can't stop making it makes me feel kinda sad for her.
Speaking of which, I have a confession. The National bores me. I've tried listening to their records several times but they have just never clicked with me. What is it that I'm missing here? I think they're a good band and all, but there's something that just doesn't hit me when I listen to them.
I remember having almost this exact discussion in the Meow Playing thread a while back. Someone suggested Boxer, which I enjoyed more than Trouble Will Find Me. They have grown on me a little, but I have to be in just the right mood and it's never the first thing I look for. I am I'm sure their live performance is much more energetic than their albums, but if they end up playing opposite Boyz Noise, there is a good chance I will be missing them completely. More realistically, I'll probably give them a couple songs to grab my attention, and if they fail to excite me, I will skip over the hill and get freaky in the dance tent.
