Using what we know for sure, solid rumors, distant rumors, gut feelings and a little bit of want here are my 50 or so predictions for Sasquatch! 2009:
Nine Inch Nails, Weezer, Pavement, Jane’s Addiction, Oasis, Kings of Leon, Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs, The Shins, Decemberists, Grizzly Bear, The Long Winters, Patrick Wolf, Stars, Animal Collective, The Walkmen, Neko Case, Public Enemy, King of Khan, The Avett Brothers, Peter Bjorn and John, Monotonix, Sun Kil Moon, Passion Pit, Tobacco, Youth Group, Silversun Pickups, TV on the Radio, MGMT, Santogold, Vampire Weekend, Girl Talk, Nada Surf, Wolf Parade, Jenny Lewis, The Black Lips, Dan Deacon, Metric, The Wrens, Seaweed, Clumsy Lovers, Tenacious D, MSTRKRFT, The Thermals, Mt. St. Helens Vietnam Band, John Vanderslice, The Duchess and the Duke, Eliot Lipp, U.S.E., Todd Barry, Zack Galifinakis, Patton Oswald.
What do you think? Obivously there will probably be closer to 80 or 90 bands, but that is exhausting. Last year I got 27 of the 71 bands right. How many do you think you can guess right?
