Right. I was hoping for some adds too as there still seems like there's room. The release of the poster obviously doesn't mean there won't be adds but we've been in a lull lately regarding information so some news would be nice. I'm not reading anything into the poster as anything other than something new to sell in the store.
They just released an updated poster on the Sasquatch main web site. I don't see James Murphy on there. He could also just be unadvertised. Not trying to alarm all of you Murphy lovers and I might be blind, but I just thought it was odd.
If you're willing to pony up money for premiere, you should also just consider staying at Wildhorse. It's $50 cheaper than premiere, the food is better (two words for you: wild burger), and the atmosphere is more low key (which may not be what some of y'all want). It's offsite but it's only a mile away and there are shuttles every half hour.
The odd thing is that Nate Reuss (lead singer of fun.) was previously in a band, The Format, that was generally highly regarded, especially their album Dog Problems. They were still highly derivative (so HFG probably still hates them), but I found Dog Problems at the Multnomah County Library's used store for 75 cents and it's pretty good. Here's some irony from wikipedia: "The Format chose their name to make fun of the music industry's inclination towards a cookie-cutter "format" for a hit." And look at fun. now.

If Pollstar is correct about Friday and earlier reports are correct, that makes it 14 on Friday this year, which is up from 9 last year.
2011:Foo Dr. Garbanzohters (Sas), DFA 1979 (Sas), The Bronx (Sas), Bob Mould (Sas), Against Me (Big), Biff Clyro (Big) , Rival Schools (Big) Mariachi El Bronx (Yeti), DJ Anjali & the Incredible Kid (Banana).
I don't think that means they start any earlier, however. They are just fleshing out the stages more. Last only Mariachi played the Yeti and only Anjali/Incredible played the Banana Shack. This year so far, according to earlier reports:
Pretty Lights Girl Talk Santigold Of Monsters and Men Allen Stone
EITS Ben Howard Polica
honeyhoney Sean Wheeler & Zander Schloss
Beats Antique SBTRKT STRFKR Little People
There's one more on the Sasquatch last year but that stage started at 5:45 in 2011. The Sasquatch stage might start a little earlier than last year but I would imagine the festival still starts at 4 on Friday. There's still room on the Yeti and Bigfoot as well, should they choose.
