Sasquatch 2015, Day Three: 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.

Sasquatch 2015, Day 2: The Budos Band

Staten Island’s The Budos Band tore through a tight set of instrumental funk and soul tinged with a heavy, ominous dose of retro stoner metal. Their set on the Sasquatch main stage drew heavily on their latest album Burnt Offering.
