Sasquatch! Music Festival 2016, Day 4: Thunderpussy

For the better part of a year, Thunderpussy has been going through a list of local Seattle clubs and conquering them one by one. For their second Sasquatch consecutive appearance (they explosively opened the small Yeti stage at last year’s fest), the quartet roared the main stage open on Monday afternoon. If there was anyRead more…

Sasquatch! Music Festival 2016, Day 4: Iska Dhaaf

Seattle natives Iska Dhaaf now live in New York, but they still introduce themselves as a band from Seattle. This theme of sticking to your origins was found throughout their set at Sasquatch! Music Festival Monday afternoon. The group now takes the stage as a four-piece, a fitting change as their 2016 album Invisible CitiesRead more…

Sasquatch! Music Festival 2016, Day 3: Deep Sea Diver

“It’s pretty windy, and Peter’s cymbals are all over the place, but we’re going to roll with it.” Deep Sea Diver‘s Jessica Dobson may have introduced the Seattle quartet’s performance nonchalantly, but they were anything but casual during their 45 minute performance as they opened the Bigfoot stage on the festival’s third day. Their recently-releasedRead more…

Sasquatch! Music Festival 2016, Day 2: La Luz

It’s been close to six months since La Luz left Seattle for Los Angeles, so Sasquatch served as a sort of homecoming for the surf rock quartet. (Notably, they were met with weather that was far more Californian than Northwestern.) The move hasn’t dulled their reverb-drenched edge one bit however, as the Luzers were inRead more…

Sasquatch! Music Festival 2016, Day 2: Hibou

Peter Michel seems to be living in the breezy midpoint in between lying in bliss and getting lost in the moment, so it’s fitting that the Seattle’ musician and his comrades in Hibou opened the Bigfoot stage on a day that fell into that same feeling. Most of Hibou’s catalog runs at a midtempo paceRead more…

Sasquatch! Music Festival 2016, Day 1: Telekinesis

Save for the jam band-heavy lineup of the festival’s inaugural year – it’s weird to think about now, but in the early 2000s, jam bands were as prominent at festivals as EDM is now – Sasquatch has long been an indie rock heavy festival, and even though this year’s lineup is slightly less heavy on guitars thanRead more…

Live Video: Brent Amaker and the Rodeo

You’ve probably watched a lot of our in-studio videos, but you probably haven’t seen one quite like this one from Seattle’s eccentric, Johnny Cash-saddled Brent Amaker and the Rodeo. Having been around for ten years, Brent Amaker and the Rodeo certainly have their sound and live performance down pat. First off, there’s Mr. Amaker’s zany, frontman personalityRead more…
