My Sasquatch! 2009 Predictions!!!

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?

A Second Comedian Confirmed!

Zach Galifianakis is confirmed via a Sasquatch! Blog reader. My predictions coming soon...

Tuesday, February 10, 2009

New rumors, confirmations....

Todd Barry is now confirmed for the comedy/dance tent via his myspace page.

And the Walkmen are rumored, as they are touring with Kings of Leon.

However, rumors of Public Enemy, King of Khan, Neko Case, The Black Lips and Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs are unfounded at this point, unless someone has some links...

It is on!!!

I am about to rewrite a press release for posting on Ear Candy and I thought I would send along the press release for your blog.

Live Nation and Adam Zacks are pleased to announce confirmed dates for this year's Sasquatch Music Festival - Saturday May 23, Sunday May 24, and Monday May 25 - Memorial Day weekend at the legendary Gorge in Eastern Washington.

For the first time in its 8-year run, the festival will include the newly expanded Comedy & Dance Tent. The tent will feature performances from comedians throughout the day, and then come dusk, will spotlight electronic and dance music artists. The full line-up, website launch, and on-sale date will be announced, Tuesday, February 17, 2009.

Already the official opener to summer for music fans, Sasquatch! Music Festival is a certified monster of a musical event: this year's festival will feature another exciting and diverse line-up for the musically adventurous, and ups the ante on an event already hailed for its independent spirit.

The Decemberists Heavily Rumored, Other Confirmations!!!

Thanks to loyal Sasquatch! Blog readers it is evident that The Decemberists are heavily rumored for Sasquatch! '09 Via Colin Meloy's (Decemberists' frontman) Twitter Q & A and a date in Eugene, OR at the McDonald's Theatre. Below is the Twitter exchange:

Rumors Abound on the Message Board and Abroad...(2009)

Now there are many rumors out there, here are a few that I believe to be solid:

Tobacco (from Black Moth Super Rainbow fame): A Facebooker pointed this out on the Sasquatch! Facebook page. After a little digging found the info on Tobacco's Myspace page. Interestingly, it does not explicitly say that he is playing Sasquatch!, but Tobacco seems to be saying he will be there in his own way.

Grizzly Bear: Quartermass, the co-administrator, along with myself, knows someone trying to book Grizzly Bear, but there was conflict because they are playing Sasquatch! He also says he has on good authority that Monotonix will be playing Sasquatch! Thanks Quartermass!

Passion Pit: A Consequence of Sound reader and commenter sited that Passion Pit revealed that they would be playing Sasquatch! '09 as well as Lollapalooza and Coachela in an interview for Under the Radar Magazine. The issues cover is on the Under the Radar magazine website, but not the content, sure enough Passion Pit is featured as an artist to keep a lookout for in 2009.

John Vanderslice: A message board reader and commenter wrote that he heard John say on KEXP that he will be playing Sasquatch! this year.

Keep the rumors coming, if they seem solid I will post them!
