Kidnapped by Sasquatch

The lineup for this year's Sasquatch Music Festival was announced earlier today, and it's once again quite a doozy. Saturday features Arcade Fire, Bjork, M.I.A., The Hold Steady, Grizzly Bear, Two Gallants, Loney Dear, Viva Voce and more. Meanwhile Sunday has The Beastie Boys, Interpol, Spoon, The Black Angels, Tokyo Police Club, Smoosh and many more.

Playlist: Sasquatch Music Festival 2007

At first glance, Saturday is the better lineup, with a top-to-bottom embarrasment of riches. However, note that when Neko Case plays outside in the Northwest, Mother Nature does weird things (see video from last year's hail-laden performance.) I love her to death, but she's bad news weatherwise.

Sunday, on the other hand, has both the Neko-less weather and some Beastie Boys reunions. First, you'll note on the schedule that Money Mark plays earlier in the evening, so one has to assumed that he'll join the Beasties at some point during their set (and perhaps some reciprocal love will be in store earlier during MM's set.) Also, let's not forget that The Beastie Boys and Sasquatch have a history:
