Sasquatch! Music Festival 2017, Day 1: Thee Oh Sees

If there is one thing Sasquatch crowds seem to agree on, it is that Thee Oh Sees are awesome. Fronted by the quite charismatic multi-instrumentalist John Dwyer, Thee Oh Sees tore up the Bigfoot Stage on Day One of 2017’s Sasquatch Music Festival, resulting in a sweaty, bro-laden mosh pit and necessary crowd surfing. In thisRead more…

Sasquatch! Music Festival 2017, Day 1: Gazebos

Seeing Gazebos in the daytime feels a rare occurrence. Usually found in a dimly-lit club, the Seattle band graced the Yeti Stage on Day 1 of this year’s Sasquatch Music Festival, largely playing tracks from their 2016 debut record Die Alone. As the opening band of Sasquatch, Gazebos earned the dubious honor of playing to a small crowdRead more…

Sasquatch! Music Festival 2016, Day 4: King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard

Sasquatch! Music Festival 2016, Day 4: Four Tet

A Four Tet remix has long been a universally accepted stamp of approval and new music from the beatsmith is always met with a rare intensity of excitement.

Sasquatch! Music Festival 2016, Day 4: Caribou

Sasquatch! Music Festival 2016, Day 4: Ibeyi

Due to the windy weather and the consequential shuffling of band’s set times and locations, Sasquatch! Music Festival’s El Chupacabra tent housed several acts that certainly didn’t fit the sound the EDM-themed stage is known for. Ibeyi was seemingly one of those bands, but the group had been scheduled for the stage since the beginningRead more…

Sasquatch! Music Festival 2016, Day 4: Jamie xx

A 12:30 a.m. timeslot on the final day of a four-day Sasquatch! Music Festival is a daunting test. You’re either playing to whoever’s passed out on the lawn or people who are, for any number of personal and chemical reasons, not ready to let their festival experience end. Jamie xx wasn’t the most explosive electronicRead more…
