weekends away

I, like 20,000 other people, am heading down to Sasquatch for the weekend... in 11 hours, in fact.

No posts til Monday or Tuesday, but I guarantee I'll have lots to write about.

I'm hoping to catch some or all of:
Rogue Wave, Architecture in Helsinki, Sufjan Stevens, Iron & Wine, Band of Horses, Neko Case, the Cons, the Hip, The Shins, Flaming Lips, Jamie Lidell, Pretty Girls Make Graves, Chad VanGaalen, Arctic Monkeys, the Decemberists, QotSA, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, and Beck.

I still wonder who, in their infinite wisdom put the Hip and the Cons on almost completely overlapping, and slotted Steve Malkmus in as a last minute addition on the same overpacked day, but scheduled We Are Scientists, Mitasyahu, and Damien Jurado (yawnnnnnn) at the same time on Sunday (I have deemed that time, "nap time"). I know part of it is dependent on band schedules... but still.

Michael and Hanson are there too.

Have a good weekend.

now playing: Neko Case - Hold On, Hold On

Hah! Have fun meeting the female population of my high school, Quinn. They're going to Sasquatch because "OMG DEATH CAB IS PLAYING!! HAVE YOU HEARD OF DEATH CAB??"

you mean you're not going?

during DeathCab I'm going to be "OMG IN THE LINE FOR OVER PRICED FRENCH FRIES!"

if Postal Service two years ago is any indication, a Ben Gibbard appearance is the time to get food and avoid long lineups.

Dude. According to the red cat website Hella/Advantage is now on JUNE 28th, not may 28th.

gord downie: national fucking treasure.

no wonder people were offering $500 for a ticket to the Hip last night.

I saw some extremely overpriced hip records in a Dutch record shop the other day. In fact, the only Dutch record shop thus far worth spending rainy Saturdays in. Too bad I couldn't have imported some Hip records to exchange for Group 1850 records (clearly in no way a one-to-one)//nice German hippy-dippy records.

Hope you have/had a fun time.

love,
Kara

i was at the ff+dcfc concert back in april and, despite all the screaming girls that probably didn't even know dcfc had tons of prior albums, dcfc actually put on a decent show. they actually tried to play like how a rock band would play and didn't come off as some sappy melodramatic performance. oh, then they also came out in gorilla suits and danced around during ff's "take me out".
