i went to Sasquatch for the first time a few weeks back. Nothing compares to Coachella, but Sasquatch is still pretty damn cool. Main attraction is the Gorge. i was hypnotized by it beauty and just loved sitting near the top of the slope and looking at it as the light changed. At one point i was talking to a "cool person" and they were complaining about the stage and how it had nothing going on "show wise". i pointed out the show was behind the stage. Her response was "oh yeah."

i didn't take too many pictures because i was in vacation mode and hanging with a very excellent friend who would call me out when i was getting obsessive with the camera. 3 parts there will be for Days 1, 2 and 3. Here's part 1:

They got windmills close by too.

The first act i saw day one that elicited an "Ahhhh shit this is goood!" was Crudo. The clip above is a little of "Let's Go" that goes into some beatboxing done by the great Butterscotch.
