    I'm surprised that there hasn't been a smaller, better curated festival spread out among a few venues in LA yet. And HARD seems to have so many fans that go to like, all of their events, and are STILL excited about all of these repeat acts.

    4/17: Swans, Angel Olsen
    4/18: Lee Coombs, Aphrodite @ Public Works
    4/24-26: Stagecoach
    5/1: Giegling Showcase @ Oakland
    5/2: Sleater-Kinney @ The Masonic
    5/3: Four Tet B2B Floating Points @ Public Works
    5/28: Refused, White Lung @ GAMH
    5/30: Neutral Milk Hotel @ Pappy & Harriet's
    6/2: Kiasmos ft. Olafur Arnalds, Rival Consoles @ The Independent

    Oh I know that believe me. I've seen them enough times since 2008 to know how small their following is. At Coachella 2013 it seemed like there were only 100 people inside that tent. Same goes for Lolla in 08, and pretty much every other time I've seen them.

    100 people in 2013? Maybe because I was in the front but I thought that tent was rocking for them. My set of the weekend for sure.

    I'm def exaggerating but the tent was pretty empty. I was by the soundboard, and dancing my ass off the whole time. I couldn't help but notice how empty it was the whole time though. This was during weekend 2 btw.

    Booka Shade were able to get a good sized crowd the last time through San Francisco at the Mezzanine during San Franchella '13.

    They absolutely owned at Sasquatch '10. The crowd was so awesomely into it, Booka Shade actually came out post curfew for an encore.

    Fuck yeah.

    Wasn't a small crowd either from what I recall.

    I can only imagine how amazing a Booka Shade set would be at Sasquatch.

    For Weekend 1, you are not exaggerating at all. Tent was ~ 1/8 full, I ran over from Phoenix for 20 minutes after deciding my friends chose wrong and while fantastic, felt kinda weird not having more people there. I presumed it would be crowded. I heard Dismemberment Plan was the same way this year, rough time slot I guess.
    Friday: AC/DC//Tame Impala//Azealia Banks//Jon Hopkins//Todd Terje//Cloud Nothings//Caribou//Action Bronson//Erol Alkan//
    Saturday: Drive Like Jehu//Kasabian//Run The Jewels//Father John Misty//Antemasque//Tycho//Sebastien Leger//Tale of Us//Parquet Courts//Tourist
    Sunday: St. Vincent//Circa Survive//Brand New//Gesaffelstein//Touche Amore//Built to Spill//Ben Klock//Desaparecidos//Jenn Lewis//Tiger & Woods//Til Von Sein//Saint Motel
