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
So should we expect bigger headliners this year since the price of 3-day tickets are just about the same as the 4 day passes were last year?
There's no way to know for sure yet, but I don't think that is necessarily the right assumption. With festival organization, there are variable (by day) and fixed (for the whole weekend) costs that Sasquatch has to pay. It's not just an increase from 4 to 6 days of variable costs with 1 weekend worth of fixed costs, but now 2 weekends worth of fixed costs that Sasquatch has to compensate for.
Song that made me buy my first album: "Seven Nation Army" - The White Stripes
Song that made you buy an album and wonder, "Why did I buy that album?": "Reflektor" - Arcade Fire /semi board suicide
You are 5 minutes from passing out and you find yourself with a set of headphones: "Champagne Supernova" - Oasis
Current song that you are embarrassed to like. Because, you know, we all have those people in our lives that make us listen to the radio: "Burn" - Ellie Goulding
Song you wish you would never hear again: "Just the Way You Are" - Bruno Mars
Song I always come back to: "Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space" - Spiritualized
Song you liked until you found out all the douchebags liked it: "Pumped Up Kicks" - Foster the People. In October 2010, Foster the People and Twin Shadow were the first two bands to be rumored for Sasquatch 2011. Nobody knew Foster the People yet - their debut EP wouldn't be released for 3 more months. Their MySpace page listed the tour date @ Sasquatch, and you could download "Pumped Up Kicks" for free. I thought it was a pretty cool track. Little did I know they would blow up.
"To everyone really upset about us asking people to dress up at our shows… please relax. It’s super not mandatory. It just makes for a more fun carnival when we are all in it together. So far these have been the best shows we have ever played. See you soon. Love, Arcade Fire"
