Skip to 2:30: "We've got a couple of gigs next year. We're doing a couple of festivals. Not many. Like, probably one in Moscow or something. There might be one somewhere else. We might be doing on in California somewhere possibly. I'm not sure if there's any big festivals in California next year, but there might be one. If there is, we might be playing it."
I guess Muse has headlined less recently than Arcade Fire, but having two headliners who were repeats from the last four festivals seems kind of lazy.
10. Built to Spill @ Slim's 9. Tame Impala @ Sasquatch 8. Killer Mike @ Sasquatch 7. CHVRCHES @ Doug Fir Lounge 6. Paul McCartney @ SafeCo Field- Second time seeing Macca so I knew what was coming. Otherwise, it would have been number 1. 5. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis @ Sasquatch!- This show will be the number 1 highlight of Macklemore's career, guaranteed. 4. How to Destroy Angles @ The Regency Ballroom- After seeing the amazingly visual Trent Reznor spectacle in a club, for some ridiculous reason, I didn't want to see it in an arena, so I missed Tension. My mistake. 3. The Postal Service @ Alex Madonna Expo Center 1 & 2- THE YEEZUS TOUR @ Key Arena
Most disappointing concert of 2013: Modest Mouse @ Fox Theater. After their amazing Sasquatch 2011 headlining set, I had high hopes. This show was the first among their small run of shows surrounding Coachella. It was not great.

I saw Foals at Wonder Ballroom last night. Those guys put on an amazing show. It's crazy to me that they'll play to giant crowds at European festivals but play a 800 person room in Portland. Still a great show, though!
Sky Ferreira- Night Time, My Time M.I.A.- Matangi OutKast- Stankonia OutKast- Speakerboxxx / The Love Below - For whatever reason, listening to The Love Below always becomes a chore for me after listening to Speakerboxxx. Arcade Fire- Reflektor Vampire Weekend- Modern Vampires of the City CHVRCHES- The Bones of What You Believe The Unicorns- Who Will Cut Our Hair When We're Gone? Sleater-Kinney- The Woods
