Bigfoot Late/Lower Tier Rankings

UPDATE: According to Travis Hay/Earcandy, the Bigfoot Late shows will be 11:30pm - 12:30am Saturday and Sunday night, and the schedule should be out in a couple days.

A couple words about the BigFoot Late stage, which Deadmau5 is playing on Saturday night, and Booka Shade is playing on Sunday night, according to the Sasquatch main page. In the past, the Bigfoot/Wookie was scheduled to end around 10pm, even though it has gone later based on delays. With additional slots on the Bigfoot/Wookie this year, we've already discussed a Deadmau5 10:30pm to midnight show, so this may be the definition of Bigfoot Late, since it is much later than any other year. It could be later though.

Bjork was scheduled to play until 12:30am at Sasquatch 07 on the mainstage, which is the latest anyone has been scheduled. There have only been a couple instances when music was still playing around 1:00am, and one memorable occasion was weather related. There is a county noise curfew, and the campground has always had a 2:00am noise curfew, so you shouldn't expect a late show approaching 2:00am, but it's very possible we see an act scheduled past Bjork's 12:30am ending slot three years ago. We'll soon find out.

On to the Lower Tier Rankings. As I mentioned with the Middle Tier Rankings last week, I've spent a couple hours listening to each band on the lineup, so here is how I would rank the lower tier. The lower tier is defined as the 30 lowest billed acts on the lineup. I'll list the other 15 after the top 15, so you know which 30 I am pulling from. If you have a couple bucks burning a hole in your pocket before the schedule is released, why not give one of these bands a try?


1. Tallest Man on Earth
2. Nurses
3. Local Natives
4. The Very Best
5. The Heavy
6. Mumford & Sons
7. Phantogram
8. Martina Topley-Bird
9. Cymbals Eat Guitars
10. Avi Buffalo
11. Langhorne Slim
12. Fool's Gold
13. Yes Giantess
14. Shadow Shadow Shade
15. Booka Shade


The other 15: Damn-Funk, Neon Indian, Hudson Mohawke, Fresh Espresso, Jets Overhead, Tune-Yards, Shabazz Palaces, Morning Teleportation, Past Lives, Dinosaur Feathers, Jaguar Love, Seattle Rock Orchestra, Z-Trip, A-Track, The Dawes.

Agree, disagree, hate, like, anything else?

Neon Indian should be on your list of those to watch, but otherwise pretty good job.
