I am kind of disappointed in the lack of live electronic acts, like Beardyman last year, or Massive Attack or Simian Mobile Disco.
I will definitely check out Presets, Matthew Dear and T.E.E.T.
Also wish there was at least 1 big comedy act. Some good names in there but they're all small time.
Sorry no Dane Cook. Also, you should really explore the lineup before saying such foolishness about the electric acts. take Toro y Moi, The Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Holy Ghost!, and Divine Fits for starters.
Well god damn, how did I miss Divine Fits on that lineup.
I foresee a very MGMT-esque set. Huge crowd, people wait through a bunch of songs that they don't know, "Such Great Heights" comes on, the whole hill dances and smiles. End scene.
This would be true at any given festival other than Sasquatch. The Postal Service were especially huge in the Northwest back in the early 2000s. I'm sure there'll be some people that only know a couple of their songs, but the vast majority at Sasquatch will stick around for their whole set and likely know every song.
Alright, fair enough. Even though I was in the NW at that time, both I and most people I hung around weren't too big into the Death Cab, so it always seemed to me that the Postal Service was for the most part a brief love affair with one bleepy-bloopy track. I stand corrected.
Totally the wrong thread but whatever, someone else started it: Are there stores set up in or around Seattle where you can legally buy the legal weed and if so, do you have to be a resident of Washington to shop there? If said stores exist, what are the prices like?
my understanding is that said stores won't be up and running until december 2013.
no, it's never been that fucking hard, but what i'm asking here is whether you no longer need to keep an eye out for the blue jackets whilst sparking one. whatever though, i'm sure i'll look around regardless of what the word is. it's like second nature. i think cbats' guess is the most likely scenario.
If anyone gives me any shit for smoking the devil's lettuce wherever I damn well please this year (not going to happen, never does)... I am going to tell them Nick Offerman said it was okay.
ha, yeah, that's exactly where my brain went when i saw the video, too. but on that note, do you actually think that it'll be cool to smoke the devil's lettuce anywhere at sasquatch this year, simply without giving a fuck? i get that the gorge is a private venue and they can regulate as they see fit, but in light of the new state law i'm just curious as to what other's predictions are on this issue. that said, it's never been a problem for me in the past, so no worries either way, i suppose.
i am at a loss to explain how the xx are getting all of these top-tier festival slots. sure, their music works well for being in a dimly-lit hipster bar, but the live act is possibly the most boring i've ever seen. zero stage presence whatsoever. i saw them "headline" treasure island last year and they were completely blown out of the water by m83 and the gossip before them. it was like, "hey, hope you enjoyed those awesome shows, now take a nap." for fuck's sake.
if they do headline sasquatch, hopefully it's when empire of the sun is doing a late night set.
