Sasquatch

The Sasquatch Music Festival has finally arrived this weekend. Saturday and Sunday are both sold out, so hopefully you have your tickets if you are going. Personally, I will only be attending on Saturday, and I don't think I'm going to be camping. I've driven home from the Gorge after many concerts and I don't see why I can't do it again this year. Which brings me to my question for you.

Who is going to Sasquatch this weekend? Are you going more than one day?

If anyone is only going on Saturday, I would love to carpool with you.

If I were going this year I'd totally try to swing that with ya, but it's a no-go this time around. Boo.

such is life.

Almost everyone I talked to that is going seems to be going for the whole weekend. That's way too expensive for me, though. Going one day is plenty of concert for now.

Holy crap, but I just realized that the day I'm going to see Beck/Decemberists in Bend is THIS Saturday, so I'll be getting a little pre-show of Sasquatch. RAD.

Oh nice! I wish I was seeing Beck and the Decemberists. Both of them have such awesome live shows. I skiped out on Sasquatch on sunday because I've seen most of those bands once before.

Why I'm going on Saturday instead of Sunday
Bands on Saturday:
The Flaming Lips (Seen once)
The Shins
Neko Case
Iron & Wine
Sufjan Stevens
Gomez
Rogue Wave
Architecture In Helsinki
Stephen Malkmus and The Jicks
Common Market
Slender Means
Elvis Perkins
Bands on Sunday:
Beck (Seen 3 times)
Death Cab For Cutie (Seen 2 times)
The Decemberists (Seen once)
Nada Surf
Pretty Girls Make Graves (Seen once)
Blue Scholars (Seen once)
Clap Your Hands Say Yeah
We Are Scientists
Damien Jurado
Ben Lee (Seen Once)
The Village Green


Even though Sunday has a stronger mainstage, I'd rather see bands that I haven't seen before. I am sad to be missing Beck, The Decemberists and Clap Your Hands and Say Yeah. But I'm seeing Sufjan Stevens, The Shins and Architecture in Helsinki instead so I am not that sad.

Re: Why I'm going on Saturday instead of Sunday
But Sufjan Stevens sounds almost exactly like Ben Gibbard... so it's almost like seeing DCFC, except with different lyrics.

Sufjan Stevens and Ben Gibbard have completely different songwriting styles, though. And I'm not even sad that I'm missing Death Cab.

Re: Who rocks it?
I am looking forward to Slender Means. I've only heard a couple songs frmo KEXP, but I do like what I hear.

The only fear is that with a schedule this packed, there is going to be some overlap.

You're going on Sunday?

If so, don't you agree that Sunday is the best day to be going?

It's all subjective, but Sunday is the only day I can go, so I didn't have a choice.
