I hope that ends up being close to the real schedule, because it got rid of a lot of my conflicts I thought I would have. bloc party vs john talabot vs surfer blood would be tough and elvis costello vs grimes vs azari & III and death grips vs beachwood sparks are the ones I am still nervous about.
Saturday is going to be hell for me with conflicts. Sigur ros, the xx, bloc party, andrew bird, black rebel motorcycle club, bombino, empire of the sun, tame impala, devendra banhart, holy ghost, surfer blood, akron family, suuns, rose windows, totally enormous extinct dinosaurs, john talabot, nick offerman. Why must sasquatch do this to me. I finally start getting into the lineup and everything I want to see is on one day.
I have a show on uw's internet radio. My show is tonight from 8-10. It is streaming on rainydawg.org. You guys should tune in I am pretty excited about my play list for this weeks show. The first half will be roots, folk, americana, and alt county. The second half will be a wide variety of experimental music. It won't go super avant-garde, because most people can't get to into weird music, but it will be some cool things I think most of you will appreciate.
Not to be a downer, but I am gonna be a downer. This lineup in my mind as on the level of a bumbershoot lineup, which is a festival that cost 50 dollars a day. Maybe I have been crazy out of the loop on music over the last year, but there are more artists I don't know on this years lineup then any sasquatch lineup before. This could turn out to be okay, but in general there are only a couple artists I am really excited to see. It is obviously on off year shown by coachella's lacking lineup, but this years lineup makes me think adam is losing his touch. He got primus and sigur ros and a couple other acts that people are super excited about, but how many years has it been now that we have been expecting and hoping for these bands to be on the lineup? The one act that I was actually excited to see and that I could not have imagined on the lineup was the beachwood sparks. Yes there are acts I would be happy to see, but for a festival like sasquatch I am quite disappointed.
Here is who I want to see: Postal service Sigur Ros Bloc party Primus andrew bird disclosure toro y moi ariel pink beachwood sparks menomena oc notes holy ghost! Rose windows devendra bahnhart john talabot azealia banks japandriods Tame impala Black rebel motorcycle club
There is a good number of bands I want to see, but not many that blow my mind and really only enough to fill up two days of awesome music. There is some other good stuff on there for sure, but a lot of it I have already seen and don't have a huge desire to see them any more. I am hoping that we get some more great adds and that with some more listening of artist I don't know that this lineup turns into a good one.
