Sasquatchin’ Day 3: Ooh La La Another, What A Whirlwind!

High wind warnings! Canceled sets! Brush fires! The cow from Twister flying by my face! Day three of Sasquatch was a harrowing whirlwind, and much like the saga of Mecha-Streisand, Robert Smith was the only Cure. Ugh I’m sorry but I HAD TO. Cosmos Newcomers Cosmos recently won EMP's underage … [Read more...]

Sasquatch ’15 Yearbook: Monday Wind-down

Oh, the last day of Sasquatch. We’re all tired and worn down, but still exhilarated and attempting to get as much of the festival life in while we can. Monday’s weather was a little temperamental, which actually played in well to the eclectic variety of shows lined up. If you were ambitious, for … [Read more...]

Sasquatch ’15 Yearbook: Sunday, Fun Day Bests

Day three at Sasquatch can be a make it or break it event: too slow and it could lower motivation, but too much could lead to exhaustion. Luckily, it was exactly what we needed it to be with a combo of both: starting out a bit slow, but the middle of the day picked up and set the pace well into the … [Read more...]

Sasquatch ’15 Yearbook: Saturday’s Superlatives

Sunburns are in full effect and we made it through the second day at Sasquatch! Day two was chock full of so many good acts it was hard to take it all in, much less capture it all through a lens. I'm rarely happy to run around in 85 degree weather, but I'll most definitely make an exception for this … [Read more...]

Sasquatch ’15 Yearbook: Friday’s Superlatives

Remember back in the day when Sasquatch was only three days long? The memories are strong and for me, the Friday day one at Sasquatch still represents a kind of "day zero".

There were people everywhere in giraffe costumes, wearing … [Read more...]

Radical Face At The Tractor: Sunday Prayers Answered

One of my favorite things about the summer festival season is falling hard and fast for new performers. Sure, you'll spend hundreds of dollars for camping and a four-day pass in order to see your favorite headliner, but more often than not, I've found that most of the time I depart the gates … [Read more...]
