Fuck Coachella—the Sasquatch Music Festival is where it’s at this year.

Here is the line-up if you missed it:

Saturday, May 23rd: Kings of Leon, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Decemberists, Animal Collective, Bon Iver, Devotchka, M. Ward, Doves, Sun Kil Moon, The Gaslight Anthem, King Khan and the Shrines, Ra Ra Riot, Passion Pit, Mount St. Helens Vietnam Band, Arthur & Yu, Death Vessel, Crystal Castles, Todd Barry…there are more but I shortened the list

Sunday, May 24th: Jane’s Addiction, Nine Inch Nails, TV on the Radio, Murder City Devils, Of Montreal, the Avett Brothers, M83, Calexico, The Airborne Toxic Event, The Walkmen, St. Vincent, The Dodos, The Submarines, Viva Voce, Point Juncture, WA, Natalie Portman’s Shaved Head, etc…

Monday, May 25th: Ben Harper, Erykah Badu, Silversun Pickups, Fleet Foxes, Gogol Bordello, Santigold, Grizzly Bear, Girl Talk, Blitzen Trapper, The Knux, Bishop Allen, Monotonix, Black Moth Super Rainbow, Beach House, The Dutchess and the Duke, Horse Feathers, School of Seven Bells, Loch Lomond, Tobacco, Chromeo, Gods Pottery, Demetri Martin, The Whitest Kids You Know BLKS JKS, and MORE+++

basically–if you were wondering what was happening in the oh-so-wonderful music industry in the past few years, you could seriously just go to this show and see what’s up.  With that being said, I’d love to pretend that I can afford to go to this but in all honesty, I can’t.  AND–the show is at the Gorge.  From what I have heard it is beautiful area where camping tents and marijuana are rampantly seen.  Nice.

  1. First off… love the blog!!! i didn’t know it existed until now. In regards to Sasquatch… Ben Harper and Jane’s Addiction as headliners? I would be sleeping through these sets… they should at least have NIN switch spots w/ Jane’s Addiction. The only thing this festival has on Coachella is the fact that the festival goers don’t have to sweat their balls off all day.

  2. unfortunately, i won’t be going to either festival. booo. you making it to Coachella?
