"At the sold-out Sasquatch, bands holding down the headliner spots haven't necessarily turned out to be the biggest draws. Sure, My Morning Jacket played to a mostly packed house on Saturday, and Massive Attack was overwhelmingly solid on Sunday despite a not-so-full amphitheater floor, but the band drawing the most populous, most stoked, most deserved gathering was unquestionably Vampire Weekend." [SPIN]
Pictures of Vampire Weekend, My Morning Jacket, and the rest of Day One of this year's Sasquatch Festival (which just went down over Memorial Day Weekend), below...

Day 1 was the best of the three. OK Go, BSS, National, VW and MMJ in succession was pretty amazing (although I can take or leave VW).

excellent pics, well shot!

I can't tell if this festival looks really exciting or if it just looks really boring. Take away that view and it looks boring.

Guess that's why I fall into the Coachella column.

needs more wide shots. this fest is at the gorge....that amazing view should be showed off more.

The only way you can be bored as this festival is if you are sober. Its one of the best festivals for psychedelics. Its basically in the hometown of great shrooms, the west coast.

Did anyone make any pro-Flotilla rant?! I mean, maybe a big important rock festival like this event isn't the best place to bring up something like that, you know, people might accidentally care about world events. Need to get OFF that already man! Light up the bongs! Wooo!

This event was spectacular and great shots by the way. I was intrigued by Massive Attack and Band of Horses. Oh and I got to shake Flava Flavs Hand he is a great guy! I shot this event with the canon rebel T2i and just made a book called SNAP - Remember This ! about Sasquatch festival........ Can't wait till next year !

The two comics who aren't tagged or identified are Scott Moran in the I <3 New York tshirt and glasses, and Andy Haynes in the grey plain t shirt. Both started in Seattle and are now in New York. Both are fantastic; look them up.

Wasn't Sasquatch 3 days? Where are the other 2 days?

Siamese Dream and Mellon Collie were really good albums. Got them when they came out, still throw them on at times and think they're great. It saddens me when I hear bands from that era when I was a teenager and hear their new stuff and it's so clear how they've lost it, they sound desperate to recapture a sound/magic that they haven't had in 15 years (holy shit).... And then I realize that is not unlike a lot of us.

you dave haters can go fuck yourselves. bonnaroo 2010 was 4 of the best days of my life. the DMB and JayZ headliners at the main stage were two of the best shows I've ever seen, musically and production speaking. 2011 'roo is going to be amazing. Phish headlining?

they also played at a place called Tramps in april '99 losers. with qotsa. where were you? you guys sound pretty angry? go listen to something hip. whatever the fuck you think that is. why does james iha need to be in the band for them to be good? that makes no sense. so the band changed lineups. oh well.
