so says i

So, according to this graphic, Sasquatch is three days(!) this year. Now maybe, I'm just getting myself worked up to be let down, but if you're having a three day festival, it's gotta be friggin' good. And, considering how amazing last year's lineup was, this year should prove tremendous. So far, rumours abound that the Shins, Rogue Wave, Constantines, Neko Case, Pretty Girls Make Graves, and Sam Roberts we'll be playing the Gorge on Memorial Day long weekend.

The official announcement is tomorrow (technically today) at 5pm on Seattle's The End.

edit: The PFork has the bulk of the lineup. The headliners don't excite me that much, but the rest of the lineup is enough to drag me down to the desert.

now playing: Uncle Tupelo - I Wanna Destroy You (Soft Boys Cover)

THREE DAYS????

Holy hell! Last year was so much fun...great memories.

Best part wasn't the show though, but sharing a bed with you.

Ok then...

three days at the Gorge would put Sasquatch on the festival A List. They just need to turn down the heat a bit this year.

coechella, sxsw -- welcome sasquatch. heavy lineup indeed: www.stereogum.com (including sufjan's only gig this summer)

Um, how the hell does Ben Harper fit that bill at all?

The lineup is good but falls somewhat short of expectations for a 3 day festival, especially after last years show.

great lineup! heavy indie, trippy indie and the Hip!

I was sooo close to getting a pic of you two in bed together.

So I saw an Editors/Stellastarr date for April 25 at Richards. But you have Ladytron there...so I'm confused. Just thought I'd pass it along.

Ladytron got moved to the Commodore I think.

they did, indeed...

which makes sense, as that's where they played last time, if i recall correctly.

sasquatch pre-sale is on until Friday. $155 for the three day pass (ie. no discount over buying three one-day passes)

By Anonymous g, at 8:26 PM  

because of that, i think im gonna grab sat/sun for now.

and hit friday if the surprise act is some sweet...

i dont really need to see NIN and, while Trail of Dead are amazing, theyre not really worth $55us
