Any music fan planning to be nearb Quincy, Washington this Memorial Day weekend may want to take a look at today’s lineup announcement for the Sasquatch! Festival at the Gorge. We knew, of course, that the recently reunited Pavement would be headlining at least one night at the scenic ampitheatre, but that’s only the tip of the iceberg, as we now know My Morning Jacket, LCD Soundsystem, the New Pornographers, (recent TwentyFourBit fav) Laura Marling, Camera Obscura, MGMT, Ween, Tegan and Sara, and loads more of some of the best acts around today are also set to take the Sasquatch! stage.
In other festival announcement news, we mentioned some notable films premiering at SXSW in Austin, Texas previously, but their main focus is, you know, music and stuff. Whereas SXSW’s epic lineup has been known for awhile, the real hard part is figuring who/what/when/where/how to catch all these awesome acts. Enter the full SXSW 5-day schedule.
