Sasquatch 2015

Sasquatch 2015 – Monday: Alvvays, Courtney Barnett, Kendrick Lamar, Run The Jewels, Tame Impala, THEE Satisfaction

Show Date: May 25, 2015

Getting things started right on Monday afternoon were Seattle hip-hop R&B duo THEE Satisfaction. With local producer and beat maker O.C. Notes as their DJ, MC”s Stas and Cat vibed their way through a set filled with cool jams and some heavy beats. The bass in this set hit HARD. The duo even worked out […]

Sasquatch 2015 – Sunday: James Blake, St. Paul and the Broken Bones, St. Vincent, Temples

Show Date: May 24, 2015

One of the pleasant surprises (at least for me) was the late afternoon Bigfoot stage performance from the Birmingham soul septet St Paul and the Broken Bones. Front man Paul Janeway sang with a ton of energy. He’s got a voice that seems to have an Otis Redding tone to it, with some occasional touches […]

Sasquatch 2015 – Saturday: Father John Misty, Modest Mouse, The Budos Band, Vox Mod

Show Date: May 23, 2015

The Budos Band came ready to rock the mid-afternoon crowd on the main stage. One member of the band played the biggest saxophone I’ve ever seen. A quick Internet search tells me it’s a sax called a “contrabass saxophone”; pretty good low-end sound coming from that thing. Their sound has grown a little more rock […]

Sasquatch 2015 – Friday: Action Bronson, Flume, Little Dragon, Sleater-Kinney

Show Date: May 22, 2015

Starting things off on the right foot Friday evening, Queens rapper Action Bronson rocked a large crowd on the Bigfoot stage as big drops of rain came down. The crowd seemed to actually gain energy once the rain started to fall. Bronson rapped over some crowd favorite beats like Biz Markie’s “Just a Friend” before […]

{Sleater Kinney – Credit: Brigitte Sire} The Sasquatch music festival is finally upon us, and as always it promises to be a fantastic weekend.

Sasquatch 2014, Day 3

Show Date: May 25, 2014

I have to admit, I kind of like the new Sasquatch schedule of Friday-Sunday instead of the old late Friday-Monday. It’s a little less tiring, and you still get the free travel day on Monday so you can stay out late at the party stages guilt free. With that said, onto the final day of […]

Sasquatch 2014, Day 2

Show Date: May 24, 2014

Saturday turned out to be the sunniest and hottest day of the weekend. It seemed that a good amount of the festival goers tended to skip the first few acts and the grounds didn’t start to really fill up until 4:00 or 5:00. Most of us however knew there was good music to be heard, […]

Sasquatch 2009 Wrap-Up: Day 3

Show Date: May 24, 2009

MONDAY Oh Monday! Dear third day of camping, hair unwashed, everything I own smelling like sunscreen. After packing everything up post-haste we hoofed it to see one of the two early shows that day, the Heartless Bastards. I'd heard scattered ruminations about them but didn't know much and I'm patting myself on the back for […]
