Sasquatch 2013, Day 1: Japandroids

photos by Morgen Schuler

After Red Fang had totally shredded the Bigfoot Stage, punk rock Vancouver-based duo Japandroids jumped on stage and after fairly minimal sound checking, started their sweaty and awesome set. Though the sound was a bit strange (it would later cut out during a Vampire Weekend song), their energy was sweaty and happy. They barreled through crowd pleasers like “Fire’s Highway”, “Younger Us”, and “The Night of Wine and Roses” before rain on the horizon began to be rain on the stage – to which they prompty responded that mother nature could get lost. And though the rain would provide a beautiful foreground of golden glitter during Built to Spill, for Japandroids it mostly contributed to the already punkish crowd surfing and dancing along.
