Sasquatch! Festival Day Two

Somehow I manage to sleep right through until 10am. Wake up, eat my awesome breakfast of 3 apples, 4 museli bars and a burrito, we build shade city and generally sit around cooking in the heat and being drunk. We go see the Walkmen who were about 10 times younger than I expected but awesome followed by Calexico who I must not get or something. St. Vincent is next, it’s hot, she’s hot, everyone’s happy.

Pretty sweet way to start the day. Regretted not recording her solo show at the Spiegeltent earlier in the year. Set gets hilariously messed up during Marry Me.

Aziz Ansari, now I haven’t seen that much stand up but he is STUPIDLY hilarious. I never wanted him to leave. Sat next to Dave Sitek while I watched him.

Had to run from there to see the Murder City Devils play the best show I have ever seen hands down. Spencer Moody is off his tits drunk, stumbling around and basically hurting everyone who gets in the way of his microphone stand, he spends 5 mins in between each song screaming his tits off about how he hates jocks, loves faggots, girls shouldn’t let men disrespect them and how we don’t know shit about Iggy and the Stooges, and then when they play a song it’s tight as. He continually makes out with the guitarist, jumps into the pit and makes out with whatever guy he can, chases the photographers in the pit around with his cock out and then runs back stage, takes this guys shirt off and starts sucking on his nipple. Turns out this guy is the dude from M83 when the camera finally gets a shot of him.

Cuts in during the first songs.

Zach Galifianakis is in the Comedy Tent and not doing too well because someone is heckling him pretty bad and he’s not dealing with it very good. He does a song with Annie Clark though. I seee the Dodos, pretty much exactly the same as the last two times I saw them. I eat dinner, watch 3 songs of TV on the Radio and then go to watch M83. I don’t know what people where on about when they played the Metro because they were SO GOOD. Did not see it coming at all.

Amazing, starts off slow but turns into a pure party. Crowd was reaallly into it as well. Sound is a bit flat, this stage had terrible sound the entire weekend. Just imagine M83 on album, and then make it 10 times as epic.

I run to the main stage, watch 5 songs of Nine Inch Nails and they do a Gary Numan cover. I fucking shit you not. A Gary Numan cover, I am so far away from the stage that by the time the sound travels to me the visual is like 3 seconds out of sync. It’s awesome. I go back and get a good spot for of Montreal. Dear Australia, you got jipped. Well over 40 extras, better suits, better choreography, and Kevin Barnes’ voice was like, 10x what it was in Australia, he’s doing all these crazy screams and everything is working out perfectly. They did a Prince cover but I didnt’ pay attention because someone standing two people over from me had a seizure so that was a bit more important.

Pretty big decision between this and Nine Inch Nails. But I think I made the right one because this blew me away. Only played 2 songs they hadn’t played at the Manning Bar but Kevin was so spot on for the entire show. of Montreal has only ever trashed their gear at the end of a set twice and I’ve been there both times, cliche but damn it’s exciting. Only started this time because Kevin thought Brian had smashed his when all he had done was dropped it. Also includes a Prince cover.

Jane’s Addiction
play and give the exactly as expected rock and roll show. Perry Ferrell still jumps around like a mad man. All of TV on the Radio are standing near by and ALL getting way into it and being over excited about seeing Jane’s Addiction, was awesome. Also Jane Says live is perfect.

I expected a rock and roll show, a fucking weird Perry and a shirtless Dave and that’s exactly what I got. Eric Avery knew this was all about him and was lapping it up. Sound is excellent as you’d expect from a headliner, the show suddenly takes 10 steps up when they bust out Jane Says. If you’ve got the 90 or so dollars, see them at the Hordern.

Also some one tell Perry Farrell that George/Quincy isn’t Seattle. This is tagged as "Sasquarch" so you may want to fix that.

We get back to the Campsite and by the time we get there its memorial day, so it’s this huge party, lots of fireworks, lots of awesome. Also everyone had this habit of someone, anywhere in the campsite would start cheering and it would slowly grow until the entire campsite was cheering, repeat every 30 minutes.
