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 […]

Sasquatch 2015 Picks: Courtney Barnett, Kendrick Lamar, Run The Jewels, S, Tame Impala, THEESatisfaction {Monday, May 25}

{Top photo: THEESatisfaction – Photo credit: Brady Harvey} Of all the stacked daily lineups at this year’s Sasquatch, Monday is probably my favorite. Just looking at this schedule makes me exhausted! Aside from being maybe the best day for music of the whole weekend, it’s also the best day for hip-hop, jam packed with local […]

Sasquatch 2015 Picks: James Blake, St. Vincent, Temples {Sunday, May 24}

Sasquatch Day 3 – SUNDAY SUNDAY SUNDAY! At 6:00 on the Bigfoot stage are British psych rockers Temples. The quartet put a modern spin on old 60’s psych rock; from songs like “Shelter Song” that look backwards to the sonic sounds of the Beatles, to songs like “Sun Structures’ that sound closer to modern contemporaries […]

Sasquatch 2015 Picks: Modest Mouse, Odesza, Perfume Genius, The Budos Band, The Young Evils {Saturday, May 23}

Really, so much good stuff to see today at Sasquatch! On the Uranus stage at 3:00 are Seattle rockers  The Young Evils. What started a few years ago as a more acoustic based Vaselines homage between Troy Nelson and his girlfriend (now wife) Mackenzie has expanded in both members and sound. They’ve amp’d up the […]

Sasquatch 2015 Picks: Flume, Sleater-Kinney, The New Pornographers, Unlikely Friends {Friday, May 5/22}

{Sleater Kinney – Credit: Brigitte Sire} The Sasquatch music festival is finally upon us, and as always it promises to be a fantastic weekend. Last year Sasquatch attempted to mix things up by adding a second weekend over the 4th of July (in addition to the traditional Memorial weekend event) and shortening each to 3 days […]

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, […]
