I love the brightly coloured girls that dance by themselves

The Mad Rad frontman reminded me of a mix between Bruce Springsteen and Bob Dylan

Mad Rad wrapped up their set by getting wrapped up in mic wire

The crowd was just as excited as Mad Rad

PROJECT: Sasquatch! – The Line Up….

So here it is….

The long anticipated line-up for SASQUATCH!

So many GREAT BANDS. I can’t even begin to select a focus on who to talk about.

The big bands are the Foo Fighters, Death Cab For Cutie, Modest Mouse, Wilco and The Flaming Lips.

Black Mountain, Dan Mangan  are just some of the local acts that I am flipping out over as well as other Canadian favourites Sam Roberts and Wolf Parade.

We were handed a press release that said Death From Above 1979 is also stopping by to continue their reunification shows.

CHROMEO and MSTRKRFT will DJ up a loud set at the hot-sweety dance tent.

And DEERHUNTER is pretty much all I was hoping for, and my wishes came through.

The most notable absentee from the rumoured line up is The Arcade Fire but there is enough talent to fill that void of Canadiana.
