29, 30, 31 – SASQUATCH

So far it doesn’t appear as if it is going to be as awesome as it was last year. But with quite a few exciting unknowns (tUnE-yArDs, Vetiver, Phantogram, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Local Natives, etc.) and a lot of solid bands known for great live shows, Sasquatch 2010 just might match the greatness of the past few festivals.
