1. Band of Horses (Always great, especially Ben Bridwell's stage presence) 2. Vampire Weekend (I wanted to hate on their hype, but I cannot, they were a lot of fun and very catchy) 3. Pavement (I know, I know messed up a song, bad attitude blah, blah, blah, I still think they killed it, listen to their records it is controlled chaos much of the time, well represented on stage) 4. Massive Attack (great lights, great sound, Martina Topley Bird voice is amazing, loved that the version of Teardrop they did) 5. The New Pornographers (always fun, great stage banter)
Honorable Mentions, which was almost everyone else I saw including: Local Natives, She and Him, The Heavy, Long Winters, Passion Pit, Public Enemy (the couple songs I saw), Mayer Hawthorne, Dr. Dog (I wish they could have played longer) and Nada Surf.
Edward Sharpe and Mumford and Sons would probably have made the list if I could have actually seen them.
WHAT YA'LL THINK OF EINSTEIN TECH N9NE MAKIN" AN APPEARANCE, ALL THE WAY FROM KC MO. I think its a pretty good possibility. I hear many "homeskillets" callin' him the realest rappa alive (even faster than twista), and I need to see him for myself! I bought my tickets banking on the chance of Tech bein' thurr, so if you think it might be possible holla back at me. My roomate saw them 7 times, and all he talked about for nine months was about tech being the greatest live show on earth. I jus gotta see for maself. There's gotta be some juggalo's out there with some inside info?>
AWW, YEAH, NINJA!!! ARE YOU PLAYIN ME? DON'T YOU STRAIGHT PLAY ME, GANGSTA, I'MA FAYGO YA CAR BOY
TECH N9NE WOULD BE MAD MOTHERFUCKIN DECENT (WOOP WOOP) -- YOU'D SEE ME STRAIGHT UP THERE, STRAIGHT UP HOMIE
I'LL BE SEEIN' YOU AT THE DARK LOTUS SHOW TONITE, RIGHT NINJA? WE'LL TALK ABOUT IT THERE PEACE
This topic has clearly gone off topic, but since it has changed to a subject that is quite near and dear to my heart, beer and more importantly craft beer, and no one seems to mind I have decided just to add microbrews to the title. I hope you do not mind friendlydestroyer and sorry about the run on sentence.
Here are my thoughts on camping and craft beer:
There is a fairly new movement in the craft beer industry and that is putting tasty beer in cans. There is a number of reasons for this: you can chill it faster than bottles, take it more places (places that ban glass) and it is recyclable everywhere. Plus more compact, especially after it has been drank. My recommendations tend to be on the hoppy side as I am a certifiable hophead: Dale's Pale Ale, Caldera IPA, 21st Amendment Brew Free or Die IPA, but if you like wheat beer (aka hefs and wits) check out 21st Amendment's Watermelon Wheat, better than you might expect. If you are looking for something light, but tasty Anderson Valley's Summer Solstice is tasty, has this graham cracker/creme soda kind of flavor that is also strangely tasty. For a brown/amber ale go Big Sky Moose Drool, it comes in cans now. And if you really want to go a little crazy and you love Imperial Stouts Oskar Blue's Ten Fidy is tasty and like 9.5%. To get ahold of these fine brews check out your nearest store that carries more than just the big microbreweries (Top Foods, QFC, even Albertsons on occasion) this is only if you do not have a beer store like 99 bottles, Bottleworks or Malt and Vine that you can get to with some ease. Beeradvocate.com can help you locate beer stores as well.
Hey guys, the article that cbatson posted from the Stranger got their info from my Sasquatch! Blog (sasquatchmusicfestival.blogspot.com), so those are my guesses, some of which have already been pretty much debunked, but fun to guess and dream nonetheless. Knowidyuh has been helping me this year with the blog, so check out his posts and look forward to his guesses in the near future...Oh, just so I slightly stay on topic, what do you guys think about Faith No More as a headliner? They have second tier billing at Coachella, I know that back in the day they were not a headliner, but neither were Pavement... It is a reunion, Mike Patton has played Sasquatch! before and he has quite a cult following, but it also might be one too many reunions for this year...
Ok, here is a new thread for Sasquatch! 2010 rumors. Please stay on topic and be civil or I will delete your comments. Below are the rumors that we have actual citations for on the Sasquatch! Blog, if there are some we have missed this is a good place to talk about them.
Rumored Nada Surf, Vampire Weekend, Local Natives, Girls, Soundgarden, The National, Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros
I recently had another reasonable request for a new admin and I looked into it and unfortunately the creator of the board looks to be the only one who can make people admins. I did e-mail him and never heard back, but I will e-mail him again as it is important to add more help as the community grows. Thanks for caring so much for the forum.
