2009 Sasquatch! Music Festival Roll Call!

sasquatch 2009

Coming up this Memorial Day weekend is the 2009 Sasquatch! Music Festival, held at The Gorge up in Washington. I’ve got a few friends heading up for the event but I won’t be able to make it there first-hand, yet again. I opted to save myself for Phish a bit, but for the folks that are heading up to the festival this weekend, you’re in for a serious entertainment treat. With some top-tier music acts headlining the festival, some amazing smaller-stage stuff, and a set of comedians bound to make any hipster laugh and cry a few times, this festival is once again a must-see in the never-ending sea of festival announcements and lineup updates.

If anybody sees Banana Man, send us some photos. It’s been a while since he’s made an appearance, although I did see him briefly at Umphrey’s McGee this past Halloween here in San Francisco. But that’s a given. Read on for the Sasquatch! lineup…
