Death Cab is going to be opening for Foo Fighters in the UK in July. Since they're usually already rumored to be at Sasquatch, does this help their chances?
Also with Foo Fighters in the UK in July: Billy Clyro, Tame Impala, Jimmy Eat World, and Hot Rats. Should Foo Fighters expand their tour, it would make sense that one or more of these bands also plays the NEW Friday event.
Pulp will be opening for Foo Fighters at Isle of Wight on June 11th. Does that make them more likely to hop on the magical flight from Primavera to Sasquatch to play with Foo Fighters before going to England of Isle of Wight? Or would making two cross-Atlantic trips in a week and a half make them 0% likely to be there?
Saw Gorillaz tonight. One of the best shows I've ever been too, and I usually don't like arena shows as much as shows at smaller venues. I doubt they'll still be touring in May, but they would have been sweet.
With a new album coming out next year, I thought Mogwai might show up, but they're playing the Wonder Ballroom on May 5th, so I'd say it's unlikely they'd find their way to the Gorge a few weeks later.
Ok, so some people think that since this is the 10 year anniversary, Mr. Snacks will find a way to whip up some extra cash for some extra special headliners (Daft Punk, Radiohead, etc). Other people, however, think it will kick ass the same way last year's festival kicked ass with a solid undercard and entertaining (but not as huge) headliners.
What are the chances he chooses to revisit Sasquatch 2002, the inaugural Sasquatch? The line-up that year was: Blackalicious, Galactic, Ben Harper, Jack Johnson, Maktub, Soulive, and String Cheese Incident. All of these acts are still performing. I don't think (not do I want - Ben Harper can sit out a few more Sasquatches) all of them will return this year, but maybe a few? Blackalicious probably has the best chance.
