I haven't gone before, but with a lineup including Feist, Andrew Bird, Divine Fits, Kurt Vile, Sharon Van Etten, Shabazz Palaces, The Felice Brothers, Foxygen, King Tuff, and White Fence, I'm considering going this year. Has anyone gone to Pickathon before?
Arctic Monkeys- Favourite Worst Nightmare Alt-J- An Awesome Wave Phoenix- Wolfgang Amadeux Phoenix Macklemore & Ryan Lewis- The Heist Foals- Holy Fire The Postal Service- Give Up Modest Mouse- The Moon & Antarctica Dirty Projectors- Swing Lo Magellan Macklemore- The Language of My World Andrew Bird- Armchair Apocrypha
Someone feel free to correct me if I'm wrong since my memory isn't that great, but in the past there usually hasn't been very much in the way of band-specific merch outside of shirts and hoodies. Since Sigur Ros is a headliner they might have a bit more stuff than other bands, but there's a couple dozen bands each day and only two or three merch booths. I'd buy the shit out of one of those candles if they had them, but I'm guessing it's rather unlikely.
They do switch out headliner merch each day, but I still don't see anything being sold outside of records, shirts, and posters.
Yeah man, I meant it more as a joke. I agree with nick: I don't foresee those candles being available at Sasquatch. I do, however, entirely recommend enjoying the driftwood campifery goodness on your own! Instant Iceland.
Alt-J are playing Seattle on April 6th during an extensive US tour that ends after Coachella. They do have to come back to the US for the Governors Ball, but I don't think they'll be at Sasquatch this year.
Agreed on Macklemore. On a similar note, Built To Spill has Friday (and only Friday) listed. I'll report cases like them and Macklemore where only one day is listed, but pretty much any time that day is Friday everybody should be wary. It was mentioned in the other thread that some bands will report playing on Friday simply because it's the first day listed. Might be worth putting them on the list, but should be taken with a grain of salt.
Ya, unless they have dates scheduled around Sasquatch! that make Friday fit, I'm not comfortable confirming them for that day.
Their other dates warp up on May 12th. Not enough information to confirm a date.
I completely agree, HG. I've been trying to come up with an elegant way to convey that sentiment since I first saw this thread. I like the idea expressed in thread, but the Holocaust is off limits in humor and should not be used for comedy porpoises.
