The Sasquatch Superlatives

From Outkast to Sexy Jeff Goldblum to all 101 individual basketball jerseys, here are the best things we heard and saw at the Gorge on Memorial Day weekend.

Music
In the grand scheme of the glutted music festival circuit, Sasquatch is a tier or two lower than the Coachellas or the Bonnaroos in terms of prominence. It always seems to book last year’s big names (with the exception this year of a certain reunited hip-hop tandem determined to break the world record for number of festivals headlined in a single season) and rarely gets that “holy shit” exclusive. ...   More

Music
Well, we got Outkast. The reunited hip-hop duo will headline the first half of the annual Sasquatch Music Festival at Washington's Gorge Amphitheater, which this year is spread across two separate weekends in May and July. Considering the legendary Atlanta rappers proclaimed they'd perform at 40 festivals in 2014, it'd be a major disappointment otherwise. Although the specialness of that ...   More

Live Review: Sasquatch! 2013

japandroids

Music
Now that the dirt and shame have been washed away and the effects of that jeffrey I accidentally smoked during the four minutes I spent watching Steve Aoki have reached manageable levels, it’s time to reflect upon a weekend of musical adventuring at the Gorge. City-slicker festivals like MFNW and Pitchfork notwithstanding, the only festival I have to gauge my expectations of this year’s Sasquatch ...   More

Music
Well, there's no Phoenix or reunited Britpop legends, but at least there's no Red Hot Chili Peppers, either. The 2013 Sasquatch lineup is out and it's, well, a music festival circa 2013. Headliners include the reunited Postal Service; Seattle-bred indie-rap uber-success story Macklemore and Ryan Lewis; "retarded Irish folk singers" (not my words!) Mumford and Sons; the apparently ...   More

Last night on Twitter, the rumors were flying around as slavering music fans awaited news of what the 2012 edition of the Sasquatch Festival at the Gorge (happening on Memorial Day weekend) had in store. One tweeter claimed Pearl Jam was going to be headlining one night performing on their album Backspacer. Another talked up an appearance by Lou Reed w/ Metallica. And, me, I tried to convince ...   More

Sasquatch 2011

Music
We sent Matt Singer to Sasquatch!, and this is his report. Extra photos from Evan Neuhausen are located at the bottom of this post. -Ed.Festivals are a young man's game, and I'm getting too old for this shit.Well, I'm not old, exactly.
