hey. me and my friend are driving from manitoba, going to the gorge via vancouver and seattle, picking up a friend at vancouver airport. give me an email if your interested in a ride, and well see if we can work something out. firstname.lastname@example.org
ok. me and my friend were just talking, and we were wondering... a) can you buy ice at the festival? we didnt think this was likely b) how do you keep the booze cold if not maybe im missing something, but if there are any vets reading this that can give us some tips, much obliged.
oh pleeeease let them come. there album is so good i cant stop lsitening to it right now. CoS has them crossed out of the rumours list though. it doesnt explain why, but like you said kelly they do have open tour dates.
ever since the line-up went out a few weeks ago, talk of solo sets by chris walla and eddie vedder have died down. does anyone think that these may be late additions. i realize that death cab is already playing, but that doesnt mean walla cant do a small set too. thoughts?
Tegan and Sarah are not local they are from Calgary. That's not Pacific NW. Its on the other side of the Rockies
But they lived and recorded a lot of their music in BC for a long time so there's your NW connection. I think Tegan and Sara will be early on the main stage if only because they're listed above Ozomatli and New Pornographers on the website
one of the twins lives in vancouver (the other in montreal). the album was produced by chris walla in portland im led to believe. definite PNW connection.
holy crap, this one gets me excited. the UK's 'foals' have just released their north american dates. theres a pretty big gap between LA and Portland, but wow, just maybe...
Minneapolis 7th St Entry (28) Madison High Noon Saloon (29) Buffalo Big Orbits Sound Lab (May 1) Toronto Lee's Palace (2) Montreal Cabaret (3) Burlington Higher Ground Lounge (5) Cambridge Middle East (6) San Francisco Pop Scene (22) Los Angeles Troubadour (24) Portland Doug Fir Lounge (28) Vancouver Richards on Richards (29) Seattle Neumo's (30)
im gonna go out on a limb and say that we might see mogwai there. they were rumored to be playing coachella according to CoS, but aren't on the bill. according to this website they are looking for festival(s), and i think sasquatch! would be a good fit for this band. www.groundcontroltouring.com/avails/ not too sure how reliable this source is however.
you can maybe add 'the kooks' to the list of unconfirmed acts for sunday:
