Sasquatch 2009 Line-Up

Several years ago, I went to the Sasquatch out in the Gorge in Washington. It's a twothree day music festival held in a wonderful outdoor venue with three stages. For whatever reason, the year I went turned out to be anti-climatic. The pacing of the line-up along with the actual line-up did not work well. Yes, the big name acts get primetime, but you have to build tempo as well so that everyone is amped not bored and ready to call it a night. Now that I got that out of my system, I'm going to do a 180, and say that this year's line-up has me very tempted to fly out to Washington and give Sasquatch another try.

I have to admit, I'm not that excited about the line up.
