Sasquatch! Sunday!

The Flaming Lips perform on the main stage

Sunday began as another beautiful day at the Gorge with young Chicago rockers Smith Westerns, followed by a sunny set by The Drums to get the crowd dancing early before Fitz & the Tantrums blew the roof off. And that was just the first three acts on the main stage. Cotton Jones, Typhoon, Other Lives, Wheedle’s Groove, The Moondoggies and Basia Bulat all played enticing early sets while Mad Rad, Archers of Loaf, Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears, The Moondoggies, Yeasayer, Das Racist, Flying Lotus, Gold Panda, Tokyo Police Club filled the afternoon. And then, of course, The Flaming Lips performing the entire breakthrough album of The Soft Bulletin was a spectacle of dance Dorothy’s, confetti canons, giant video screen eyeballs, and Wayne Coyne rolling around the crowd in his blow-up ball. Later, Modest Mouse performed a tight set filled with old classics and a couple brand new ones. Check out the photos here, and don’t forget to listen to the live stream today, from noon to 11PM.
