While Friday and Sunday nights are topped with EDM, Saturday belonged unequivocally and inarguably to good ol' rock and roll.
It climaxed early with a face-melting set from five-guitar band Diarrhea Planet, who brought every rock god dream to fruition: Head banging. Windmilling. Soloing behind your head. Soloing with your teeth. A dusty mosh pit kicked up in front of the stage, the wild-eyed youth unleashing their inner demons, all to the ritualistic howl of the electric guitar...
...The onslaught of guitars continued after sunset and well into the night, with veteran indie rock acts The Decemberists and Modest Mouse anchoring the main stage. The day concluded with a great set from fellow veteran band Spoon, but by that late the crowds had largely given up on guitar rock, trading it in for the synthesized sounds of ODESZA. - [Oregon Live]
Day 2 of the 2015 Sasquatch Music Festival, which happened Memorial Day Weekend in Gorge, WA, featured such heavy-hitters as Spoon, Modest Mouse, Decemberists, and Father John Misty, as well as Arcade Fire's Will Butler, Sylvan Esso, and greasy-haired upstarts Diarrhea Planet, King Tuff and Ty Segall's proto-metal trio, Fuzz.
Pictures from Sasquatch day 1 are HERE, and we'll have photos from the fest's final two days soon. More pics from day 2 below...
