This has already been mentioned in the rumors thread, but I thought I would start another specifically for the launch party to see if anyone is going/would be interested in carpooling/etc.
This is the post from the official Sasquatch site:
Live Nation and Adam Snacks are pleased to announce The 2010 Sasquatch! Music Festival Launch Party presented by Esurance and sponsored by Jack Daniel’s happening on Monday, February 15, 2010 at 7:00 p.m. at the Crocodile.
For the first time in the festival’s history the lineup will be announced LIVE at this very special event featuring performances by Surfer Blood, Atlas Sound and Fresh Espresso and hosted by Luke Burbank. Prize packages from Esurance and Xbox will be given away all night long, along with limited-edition festival posters and more.
Free tickets are available courtesy of Esurance by stopping by either Easy Street Records locations starting Friday, February 12th at 9:00 a.m. (limit 2 per person), or by listening to 107.7 The End all week to win!
Surfer Blood calls West Palm Beach home and, while still in their early 20s, have penned an album of summery indie songs that even the most hook-laden power pop band would rightfully be jealous of. Called “irresistibly catchy” by Pitchfork, Surfer Blood’s critically acclaimed debut album, Astro Coast, was released on January 19.
Atlas Sound is the solo moniker of Deerhunter frontman Bradford Cox, so named since 1994, when a sixth-grade Bradford made recordings on a karaoke cassette machine. Now signed to 4AD, Atlas Sound is those ideas that he “can’t make work with a five piece rock band,” employing stream-of-consciousness writing alongside ambient electronics.
Fresh Espresso, named by local blog SoundOnTheSound as representatives of “the next wave of Seattle hip-hop,” is producer/composer P Smoov (of Mad Rad) and MC Rik Rude.
Carpool to the Launch party for a chance to win 4 VIP tix and a premiere camping pass to Sasquatch courtesy of Esurance. Find out more at www.esurance.com/music

These aren't so much as predictions as wishes, but all the bands listed are free Memorial Weekend so... maybe?
Metric (Playing at Coachella) The Blow (PNW band) Architecture in Helsinki (playing at Coachella) United State of Electronica (PNW band) Belle and Sebastian Goldfrapp (recent album) Imperial Teen Minus the Bear (PNW band) Band of Horses (PNW band, same label as Fleet Foxes and Grand Archives) Yeah Yeah Yeahs (unlikely, in the process of writing and recording a new album. Maybe next year?)
As for your guesses... Jimmy Eat World seems somewhat likely as far as tour dates and locations are concerned, though I don't know if they are "indie" enough for Sasquatch. The Decemberists seem more likely as they are PNW and are playing with Death Cab in Oregon on the 24th. I imagine they'll be added to Sunday.
Tegan: We love something together, and we made it together and we appreciate that and we'll always have that bond... Sara: It was a mistake, and I should've worn a condom.
