Long Winters...PLEASE play Sasquatch!

Postby dahlilama » Tue May 01, 2007 2:39 pm

Does anyone else out there think the Long Winters should play Sasquatch this year?

I don't see any conflicts on the Tour page!

While you have that ink out, it's no problem for you to print me a VIP pass, right?

Mainstage, even! Looks like somewhere in the 5 o'clock hour. Score!

WOO HOO!

The Sasquatch lineup just got a lot better...

TLW at Sasquatch a few years back was one of the BEST SHOWS I HAVE EVER EXPERIENCED!

This thread seems magical.

Will someone give me a pony?
Or a new computer? The computer would probably be better/more practical.
So, dear magical thread, PLEASE MAKE MY WISHES COME TRUE, TOO.

Well, you should've asked for a pony-computer. That would've been a two-'fer. Or a computing pony. Regardless, you are a couple of days short, as I just gave away my computer to my dad. Granted, it wasn't new, but relatively decent nevertheless.

2.0ghz AMD Athalon
1gig ram
160g HDD (had 410, but I pulled the 250)
16x burner
7.1 Soundblaster Audigy II SE
etc.

'Twas a good computer. But I got a new one last weekend, and it's even better. So your wish came true -- just not for you.

Yeah, I thought about posting an addendum about their timeslot, but I knew I wouldn't be able to resist making a joke about M.I.A. being M.I.A.

...sigh. See?

Now it's over and none of those who were there want to talk about it. Weir-does.

The performance was very good; they got one of the time slots when the gorge is most breathtaking, visually, and added a good audio accompaniment to that. It was sorta hard to tell if the people up on the hill were very excited, but when John asked them for a response, the roar was actually pretty goddamn amazing. They received one of only two introductions that Sarah Silverman gave over the course of the entire event, though it was entirely about how she used the band's personal bathroom. John's banter has been reviewed elsewhere as underwhelming, but I don't think anyone short of an established megastar can really engage people all the way up the hill; mostly I think those megastars just don't talk between songs, anyway. A great performance, possibly in their biggest venue yet?

good marketing, lots of hype, blogs, and the best of all- blog-driven hype marketing.

Or, they are really good, and put on some of the most frenetic, engaging shows that anyone has seen. Also, they use a hurdy gurdy. ...take that melodica-playing bands; you've been out-obscured!

+1

I've only ever been a casual fan of Arcade Fire, but seeing them live was a real treat. It felt as though there was an element of real, physical danger and complete reckless abandon throughout their performance.

There was one member, whose name escapes me, throwing drums as high as he could and narrowly missing hitting Regine in the head trying to catch them, crashing his cymbal as hard as a human could swing a stick (until it exploded), falling off the stage (hard), falling up the stage (harder), and all other manner of physical sacrifice for the sake of 'energy'. Everything he did was on tempo and all-out. They sounded epic, and looked 'epicer'. It was awesome.

Sounds like Will Butler to me, but that's just a guess. He's so calm and laid back offstage you'd never know it.

one of my many goals in life is to make a non-metal band that successfully brings back the Mellotron. oh how i pine for the days of King Crimson...
