Sunday, May 30
Ben’s full account of Sunday’s hot, hairy Sasquatch! action will be up tomorrow, but in the meantime, here’s what he was blathering about over at www.twitter.com/nadamucho.
Apparently "Whoomp, There it Is" is the official song for #sasquatch tailgate parties.
Long Winters end their set with the Grateful Dead’s "Touch of Grey." Weird. #sasquatch
Every They Might Be Giants song in this set sounds like it belongs in a Spongebob Squarepants cartoon. #sasquatch
This #sasquatch media center = heaven. A quiet, private area with clean bathrooms and snacks.
Holy smokes @subpop’s Avi Buffalo are some energetic young whippersnappers! #sasquatch
@theteganandsara are easily one of the best lesbian sister duos out there. #sasquatch
Relaxing at the top of the amphitheatre with a group of Power Rangers, Wonderwoman and Spiderman. Seriously. #sasquatch
The xx crowd thinks they are at a Def Leppard show. Girls on shoulders, crowd surfing, and drunk fist pumping. #sasquatch
Somehow the subtlety of The xx album translates live. They are an arena-ready rock act. #sasquatch
No one wants to see Girls. They’re all headed to LCD Soundsystem. They are missing out. #sasquatch
OH: "I like Girls. It’s my Summertime jams. And it’s, like, summertime." #sasquatch
The ex-drummer for Howlin’ Rain is playing in this live incarnation of Girls. #sasquatch
Pavement sounding beautifully loose and sloppy like it was 1995. At least until their set was stopped for technical difficulties. #sasquatch
Ten years later and Pavement’s Bob Nastanovich is still completely unnecessary #sasquatch
Public Enemy tearing through Bring Da Noize on the Bigfoot stage. Yeaaahhhhh Boyeeeeee! #sasquatch
Overheard: "Flava Flav has two buses. One for travel, the other to carry his crack and clocks." #sasquatch
Insane dance party going down in the tent for Simian Mobile Disco’s DJ set. There’s even glow sticks!
OH: (regarding #Sasquatch) "This is soooo much better than Folk Life!"
Sorry Massive Attack, I like you, but have to beat the traffic getting out of here. #sasquatch
One more thing: Ironic moustache sightings were down 28% this year. #sasquatch
Just met Pavement/Sonic Youth’s Mark Ibold at Ellensberg bar "The Tav." Didn’t think this night could get any better. #sasquatch
