Sasquatch 2015, Day 4: Sharon Van Etten

“This is our first rap song.” Sharon Van Etten may have an extraordinary talent for extracting every last excruciating detail of her romantic failings, but it can’t be said that she doesn’t have a sense of humor. One of a handful of acts to play during Monday’s brief period of cloudy skies, Van Etten andRead more…

Sasquatch 2015, Day 4: Natalie Prass

Although there was plenty of star power on the final day of Sasquatch, there was a clear standout during the early afternoon on Monday, and it wasn’t just because brought a Godzilla figurine onstage with her.

Sasquatch 2015, Day 3: James Blake

Of all of the late night sets at Sasquatch 2015, none was more subtle than James Blake’s. Unlike most of the nighttime sets in the Gorge, Blake’s performance revealed itself gradually rather than blasting the audience over the head with lights and sound, and it was all the more effective because of it. Blake’s liveRead more…

Sasquatch 2015, Day 3: Ex Hex

“Wait, they’re here?” That’s how most people reacted when they heard Ex Hex were playing, mishearing their name for that of the nocturnal London trio.

Sasquatch 2015, Day 4: Jenny Lewis

Jenny Lewis has long been an onstage powerhouse – it’s hard to imagine the Postal Service’s 2013 performance being as great as it was without her acting as co-frontwoman – but she’s never been so much fun as she has been on the tour behind 2014’s triumphant The Voyager. Beaming from the second she hitRead more…

Sasquatch 2015, Day 2: The Decemberists

“I’m going to get all VH1 on you for a minute if you’re okay with that, crowd of 85% shirtless men.” Colin Meloy may be a bookworm at heart, but he’s spent the last fifteen years learning how to be a rock frontman, and during The Decemberists’ Saturday evening mainstage set, those skills were putRead more…

Sasquatch 2013, Day 2: Modest Mouse

Seven years without a new album. Nearly biannual membership shuffles. Repeated reports of studio sessions without any release. For a minute, Modest Mouse looked like they might have been heading down the lucrative but artistically fruitless legacy act path that a few of their contemporaries are starting to follow. But when they arrived on theRead more…

Sasquatch 2015, Day 3: St. Paul & the Broken Bones

Church took place on Sunday at Sasquatch, and Paul Janeway was the officiant, worship leader, and pastor. St. Paul, as he’s otherwise known, was a man possessed led by the Spirit from the second he set on stage with his equally as fiery bandmates in St. Paul & The Broken Bones. From The City, theRead more…
