Sasquatch is a month away playlist

Only one more month. Heres the things I’m most excited for.

Kettering– The Antlers
As long as the live show is less depressing than the album.

Ten Mile Stereo– Beach House

The Hair Song– Black Mountain

ATX– Alberta Cross

Going Steady– Death From Above 1979
Their first reunion show at SXSW turned into an actual riot. This years reunited band (like Pavement last year) is really the only draw on Friday for me.

Twilight At Carbon Lake– Deerhunter
Of the three times I’ve seen them, this has only been played once. I’d love to see it again. Their live show is never the same twice, and thus far they’ve been great 2/3 times and absolutely incredible once. Here’s hoping that first time gets repeated. Either way, its a band I love.

Watching The Planets– The Flaming Lips
Legendary, theatrical live show. Sure to be a highlight of the weekend.

Do The Astral Plane– Flying Lotus
How could FlyLo not be a highlight of everything ever?

You– Gold Panda

Lounge (Closing Time)– Modest Mouse
I’ve heard that their either really good or really bad. Hopefully they err on the good side. With the exception of a few songs, I hope they play nothing recorded after 2002.

Seventeen Years– Ratatat

Riot Rhythm– Sleigh Bells

Imagine Pt. 3– Smith Westerns

Wooded Hill– The Globes

Heavens On Fire– The Radio Dept.
I like the Thurston Moore intro.
Feel It All Around– Washed Out

St. Rosa and the Swallows– The Thermals
A joyful, sweaty mess. So much fun.

King Of The Beach– Wavves
Another joyful, sweaty fun mess.

Kamera– Wilco

Modern World– Wolf Parade
Its their last show ever, and I’ll go if nothing conflicts with it.

Ambling Alp– Yeasayer
I hope they play only stuff from All Hour Cymbals and then this song. I didn’t like Odd Blood very much.

All My Life Foo Fighters
Definitely a why the hell not show. Besides DFA1979 I have no one I care to see on Friday, so I might as well see the Foo Fighters.
