Gorge-ous Backdrop

Do you hear that?

It is the sound of folks feverishly tweeting and posting about the amazing #Sasquatch line-up just announced. After weeks (who are we kidding, months!) of mathematically calculating probabilities based on tour schedules and record release dates, we finally have a firm answer of who’s going to be at the Gorge this Memorial Day weekend, as well as explanations as to why certain folks don’t have a Seattle tour date in the next few months.

Not to sound like everyone else every other year, but this year’s line-up has left me speechless. The Sasquatch folks have brought together the best of the best of the best (except Allo Darlin, which I’m guessing will be begged to participate next year) to celebrate their 10th Anniversary.  I mean Wilco, Bright Eyes, Matt & Kim, The Radio Dept., The Thermals, Stornoway, and The Young Evils!?!?!?  You’re killing me!!!
