Spring Break: Sasquatch!

-In addition to an expected appearance by Kings of Leon and a predicted appearance by Bon Iver, this year's Sasquatch! lineup features a ton of Pacific Northwest talent. While I am excited to see Seattle's Fleet Foxes (despite rumors that they suck live), the real spotlight seems to be on the Portland scene, with newer bands like Natalie Portman's Shaved Head playing alongside veterans such as M. Ward and The Decemberists. Even if you haven't bought a CD since the millenium, old favorites like NIN, Jane's Addiction and Murder City Devils will make the festival's steep ticket prices well worth it. The festival will take place from May 23-25th at The Gorge.
