Quick topic for this Thursday: What's the most Sasquatch band? The most Bonnaroo band is obviously My Morning Jacket, but every other festival is less clear. To consider:
1. Does frequent lineup appearances = Most? Neko Case is the most frequent Sasquatch artist, but that doesn't seem right. 2. What about geography? Should a more local band be considered over a less local one? I argue yes. 3. Does a historical connection help? Jane's Addiction would have to be considered for Most Lollapalooza Band, but I would argue for the Red Hot Chili Peppers: huge and yet somehow still somewhat respectable, from the Nineties, good mass appeal and could probably headline Lolla every year without anyone raising an eyebrow.
For the topic question, I think the answer is Modest Mouse. Relatively local in terms of region, popular but not overly so, and has played a few memorable sets in the past few years at the 'Squatch.
Literally all I have so far, although it'll expand soon enough:
1. The Fifty Year Storm The The New Law 2. Strange Land Yellow Ostrich 3. Reign of Terror Sleigh Bells
Still to come: Japandroids, Passion Pit, Dan Deacon, Jack White, whatever I find at Sasquatch
End of the month update:
1. King Con Alex Winston 2. The Fifty Year Storm The The New Law 3. Strange Land Yellow Ostrich 4. Blunderbuss Jack White 5. Reign of Terror Sleigh Bells
Will get on the Japandroids leak soon enough, maybe. Same albums as above apply plus Avalanches (????) and Santigold. I saw Passion Pit a few weeks ago and they played some new stuff, it has potential.
