Sasquatch 2013: Welcome to the Gorge!

photos by Matthew Thompson

Today was spent traveling the winding road through the still snow spotted mountains, before breaking out into beautiful, cloud filled endless sky and the growing feeling of excitement. After much ado finding and pitching our tents, and a surprisingly short wait to enter into the grounds, I walked in to Sea Wolf playing right next to the entrance, and quite close to our own booth! After wandering around, getting my bearings, photographing the line-up (they ran out of fliers!), I caught Red Fang slaying the stage with their fiery rock, and on the mainstage, with that well-known breathtaking backdrop of red cliffs and sky, Reignwolf playing a smoky and passionate daytime set. Plans for this Friday night include rockers Japandroids, sultry Father John Misty, the always classic Built to Spill, Idaho’s gem Youth Lagoon, and later the epic pop of Vampire Weekend and our own hip-hop favorite Macklemore. Yeah, it’s hot, but it’s gonna get cooler, and good god if the sights don’t distract you from that bead of sweat dripping down from under your hat, then I don’t know what will. Sasquatch 2013 is well under way, and people are totally ready to dance, shout, and enjoy an amazing weekend.
