Postal Service, Macklemore head Sasquatch! lineup
It should be noted that KIRO radio and TBTL podcast host Luke Burbank did a fantastic job hosting the party last night and was looking super fresh in his suit and tennis shoes.
This year's lineup gave me almost everything I wanted and some stuff I didn't even think to ask for. I knew I wanted to see the The Lumineers and Sigur Ros on the lineup, but I never even thought to hope for Cake to be up on the screen. Now that I know they are playing I couldn't be happier.
I must say, though, a chance to finally see Postal Service is the highlight for me by far. I pretty much gave up. They played on of the early Sasquatch! festivals back when it was still only one day. Now that dream will come true and as cheesy as it sounds I am confident that after their set I will feel a little more complete about my life than I did before they played.
It's nice to see some Sasquatch! alums like Vampire Weekend and The xx come back but it is really exciting to see all the newcomers on the lineup. Bands like alt-j, Empire of The Sun and Father John Misty. This might be my favorite of all the Sasquatch! lineups ever.
Local artists on the lineup this year include Deep Sea Diver, Brothers From Another, Ra Scion, Odesza, Reignwolf, Rose Windows and of course Macklemore and Ryan Lewis.
Comedy: Nick Offerman, Mike Birbiglia, Brett Gelman, Jenny Slate, Kyle Kinane, Brody Stevens, Jon Daly, James Adomian, Joe Mande
