Sasquatch 2013, Day 4: Dirty Projectors, Toro y Moi & Tig Notaro

by Tara Kelly Kearns Well, it finally happened. The rain that had teased and threatened for the last few days finally came and reminded everyone just exactly what the PNW is all about. That didn’t deter anyone, however, and the music played on even through the wet and the cold. Fortunately, my first event ofRead more...

Sasquatch 2013, Day 4: Toro y Moi

Toro y Moi kicked off his world tour with a performance at Sasquatch to the increasingly tired but never lacking in excitement crowd (see exhausted dancing). His set was between the PNW’s Odesza in the morning and Disclosure’s in the afternoon - a line-up of three amazing and impossible to not dance to groups. HisRead more...

Sasquatch 2013, Day 3: Grimes

To say I feel like I know too much about Grimes might be an understatement. While I’m not a mega fan in knowing facts like her favorite foods - I am a mega fan in that I’ve been fascinated by her since around 2009, long before Grimes was a giant and adored pop star. AndRead more...

Sasquatch 2013, Day 4: Chvrches

If Killer Mike had my favorite show at Sasquatch, Chvrches gets to take favorite pop show of the weekend. Where their albums are already pretty perfect in the realm of pop - the live performance blew them out of the water. Lauren Mayberry’s vocals are so close to sweet that it’s almost bitter - sheRead more...

Sasquatch 2013, Day 3: Earl Sweatshirt

I might not have gotten on the Odd Future bandwagon back when it began, but that doesn’t mean I was going to miss Earl Sweatshirt this year at Sasquatch. He took stage simply - his black Supreme sweatshirt (hood up of course), OF DJ Syd backing him up close behind. Lucky for the audience (“HeyRead more...

Sasquatch 2013, Day 3: Killer Mike

So I might have been ranting about various shows this weekend being the best shows I saw - but here’s the thing. Yes, they were amazing performances by talented musicians, but Killer Mike’s set at the Yeti stage topped all of them. There is something about witnessing a brilliant musician finally receiving the full blownRead more...

Sasquatch 2013, Day 3: DIIV

At around 3 o’clock, I made my way to the fairly full audience of the Bigfoot stage to catch Cole Smith’s (of Beach Fossils) project DIIV. Little did I know I was in for one of the more sun drunk performances I would see - and I mean that in the best and most innocentRead more...

Sasquatch 2013, Day 3: Primus, Grimes, Mumford, Elvis and more

by Tara Kelly Kearns The third morning of Sasquatch looked like it might be the day of rain. But after only a few sprinkles in the morning, the sun and clouds stayed their dry course and danced the day away. The few people that woke up and got it together in time were able toRead more...

Sasquatch 2013, Day 3: El-P

As clouds began to gather (though they wouldn’t actually be super ominous until Earl Sweatshirts set) El-P took stage to a large audience totally ready to get down with the talented east coast rapper. He would later be called a brother to Killer Mike - and his ability to get the crowd moving whether itRead more...

Sasquatch 2013, Day 3: Fang Island

Is it weird that I actually noticed that singer Jason Bartell was wearing the same star studded shirt today at Sasquatch that he was wearing during Fang Island‘s session in 2010 at KEXP? I only notice because that’s one way I think of their music - the sincerity of their power chord power stance performancesRead more...
