Mimicking Birds are soooo good!! They're currently touring with Modest Mouse, which made me think they wouldn't be there since MM opened last year?? I mean there's definitely the change they come on their own, I just think it's weird.... maybe MM will be a repeat as well?? I dunno just the whole Mimicking Birds thing throws me off a little, because I can totally see them coming, but who knows.... Ideas?
I saw them during Portland's MFNW they were great! I think it a possibility due to their rising popularity.
Here are a few other names that may be touring around Sasquatch and are possibilities:
- Chairlift (band with that annoying handstand ipod commercial song) - opening for Peter, Bjorn & John
- Flosstradamus Sat 05/23/09 12th Annual ETD POP Festival Daly City CA - After some research I realized ETD POP is a big electronic festival near San Fran. So perhaps they could snag some of these acts for a dance tent(?)
- Cornelius - Dan Deacon - Dave Seaman (not really sasq. material, unless there is a dance tent) - Dirty Projectors - Fever Ray - Fujiya & Miyagi - Holy Fuck - Jose Gonzalez - King Khan & the Shrines - Lykki Li - Peanut Butter Wolf - Royksopp - The Field - The Sea and Cake
No offense, but hearing people throw around names like 311, Pepper, No Doubt, and Guns n' Roses scares the living bejesus out of me. I'm not sure if I'm alone on this, but past bands like these (ex. Ozomotli) seem to bring a lot of people that only go to see one band, and attempt to make the festival a hell-hole for the rest of us.
You're so not alone on that. I think some people are going to the wrong festival!

Haha I totally agree about the earplugs! Last year there was techno music blasting all night long it was like a constant rave. However, you do get to meet really cool people in general camping. I also got extremely burnt after the second day which totally sucks when people are dancing around and pooping into your shoulders.
