Sasquatch! Music Festival Lineup Announced

Sasquatch Festival 2010 Being relatively new to Portland I am still getting up to speed on the various summer festivals out this way. One that gets the most talk is the Sasquatch Festival, which true to Pacific Northwestern ways includes camping in the Columbia Gorge. Getting in and out of this festival can be a challenge, I’m told, but who cares when you can return to your Westy for a nap and a couple veggie burritos?

This year’s line up looks pretty tasty, by the way, including the recently reunited Pavement, Massive Attack, My Morning Jacket, Ween, Vampire Weekend, MGMT, Kid Cudi, LCD Soundsystem, The National, Band of Horses and others.

Marking it’s ninth year, this year’s Sasquatch Festival returns to The Gorge in Quincy, WA May 29-31 (Memorial Day Weekend).

Tickets go on sale Saturday, February 20 at 10:00am through TicketMaster (booo!!!).

Camping is available for May 28, 29, 30 and 31 and can also be purchased online at Ticketmaster.com

Grant Park, Chicago, August 7-9, 2009

This was my first trip back to Chicago since moving to Portland, Oregon in December 2008. As much as I love Portland, there is a large piece of my heart in that city by the lake. It’s where I was born, it’s where I formed my favorite band, and it’s where my son was born. It’s still my city.

So it was with great excitement and anticipation that I returned to see friends, drink a lot of beer and catch some live rock and fucking roll. I’d been planning and thinking of this trip since before we even moved so you’d think I’d have had all the details ironed out like the Arctic Monkeys‘ fitted shirts. You don’t know me well and the Monkeys no longer wear Fred Perry, but more on that later…

Band of Horses Hit the Right Notes

Band of HorsesBand of Horses at Terminal 5

New York, November 4, 2007

For all of the talk lately – including our own message boards – about blog buzz killing certain bands, it’s nice to see some evidence to the contrary.

When I first caught a glimpse of Band of Horses live, it wasn’t in person; it was a tepid, shaky performance of “The Funeral” on David Letterman (YouTube). I’d had their debut, Everything All the Time, for a while and hadn’t really listened much except to know that the difference between the muscular recorded version of the song and the Letterman adaptation was glaring. Granted, a one-song late-night television debut isn’t the best barometer of a band’s live prowess, but others have done it far better than Band of Horses did.

Recent Songs from Subpop

Subpop is a label that’s been pretty cool about MP3s. They give away one download per release, and they put it out there at the same time they send out the promos. It’s a smart idea, of course, since it allows fans to hear a song and get excited about an upcoming release.

Pissed Jeans – “People Person” from Hope For Men, out now.

Jennifer Gentle – “Take My Hand” from The Midnight Room, out now.

Handsome Furs – “Cannot Get, Started” from Plague Park, out now.

Kinski – “Punching Goodbye Out Front” from Down Below It’s Chaos, out now.

Flight of the Conchords – “Business Time” from The Distant Future EP, out now.

Arthur & Yu – “There Are Too Many Birds” from In Camera, out now.

Band of Horses – “Is There a Ghost” from Cease to Begin, out October 9.
