Sasquatch has released its full schedule. So how are the conflicts? Compared to many festivals, they’re incredibly kind. However, there will still be some tough decisions for attendees: on Friday, Girl Talk, Explosions in the Sky, and Beats Antique all somewhat overlap. Sunday is likely the most brutal, with The Walkmen and Beirut overlapping a bit, as well as Bon Iver being in near direct oppostion of James Murphy’s set.
This last decision may be the hardest for many, so a bit of advice: Murphy will be DJ’ing, spinning his favorite records. Not that this won’t be exciting, but when this writer attended the same event at last year’s Moogfest, many in the audience were expecting a James Murphy show, so just be aware of what you’ll be seeing.
Sasquatch is from May 25th-28th, with tickets sold out, but with this smaller festival having a more exciting lineup than many of the majors, perhaps it’s worth looking at Stubhub for those without passes.
Plugging away since 1999, The National finally hit mainstream success with the release of their 2010 album High Violet. Of course, this entailed their first world tour, but in the new documentary Mistaken For Strangers, it’s only the backdrop for the relationship between lead singer Matt Berninger and his younger brother Tom, who had no idea that these short videos he was shooting would turn into a public document of their troubled, if still loving brotherhood.
