What I'm missing this weekend

Play it: Sasquatch Music Festival 2006

The lineup and schedule is now all finalized for this weekend's Sasquatch Music Festival at the beautiful Gorge Amphitheatre. It's an incredible lineup, spanning three days, but I'm heading to Minneapolis for my nephew's bar mitzvah.

While I'm doing a reading at temple Friday night, TV on the Radio will be holding their own temple on the Mainstage. While my nephew recites from the Torah Saturday, Sufjan Stevens and Stephen Malkmus will be will recite musically from their respective indie idioms on dueling stages. When the challah is broken, Neko Case and Band of Horses will be breaking heartstrings on two different stages. And when "YMCA" by the Village People gets played at the reception, people will be raising their hands to the end of Sam Roberts' set while The Shins are just hitting stride with their's on another stage.

I don't want anyone to get the wrong idea here, though. I wouldn't miss my nephew's bar mitzvah for just anything (it only happens once - and will be my first.) I just hope someone reading this goes and comes back with a report for me... come on - this goy needs some vicarious gorge. L'chayim!

A Gorge-ous lineup

I blew it off too. We get free tickets at work, but the idea of sitting in the rain for a long weekend is just too much for me. You made the right choice!

rad said...

ah hah too bad for mjapa there really wasn't much rain (I'll just leave out the hail in that statement :/ haha) it was really amazing, I went sat. and sun. so you're jewish? Matisyahu was AMAZING I think he put on the best show just the way he interacted with the audience and brought the entire crowd together as one, it was a...spiritual experience!! The Flaming lips were great too, the lead singer got in a big clear ball and rolled onto the was really cold but they got everyone dancing to get warm again. All the mainstage bands performed well, though I really hate Queens of the Stone age. Decemberists were good, Shins I loved - I pretty much stuck to the main stage so I could keep a good spot for my fav bands. ahh well theres a lot more obviously but if I went on like this it would take forever...too bad you missed, but its understandable why definately.
