When they say "save the best for last," they weren't kidding! Day 4 of Sasquatch went out with a bang, and a big bang indeed! The last day of the festival was nothing short of a spectical. The weather was nice and it showed with nothing but sunshine and ans warm temps to let us know, that summer was definitely on it's way... Especially with the akward weather that has been happening in the Pacific Northwest as of recent. However, that didn't stop Mr. Wind from making yet another appearence in the evening. But at least his presence wasn't as bad.
Day 4's lineup was stacked! Featuring Grouplove, Ted Leo and the Pharmacists, The Cave Singers, Feist, Silversun Pickups and rounding out the end of the festival; Tenacious D and Beck.
I was lucky enough to be able to shoot two accoustic "Endsessions" that Seattle station 107.7 The End was putting on in their own private tent of Grouplove and Silversun Pickups. Both bands were playing mainstage and being that I didn't have mainstage photo, this had to do. Both put on amazing sets but I had to leave during Silversun performing "Panic Switch" to shoot Fun.
Speaking of Fun. The band put on what had to be one of the most energetic sets I had seen all day! I wasn't too familiar with the band but to say the least they fit their name perfectly!
Another big surprise was finding out that John Reilly and friends was none other than well know thespian John C. Reilly of Boogie Nights and Chicago fame. Hell, he even named his guitar "Dewey Cox." LOL However a couple of my colleagues were wondering if anyone would turn up for his set, or would catch on who "John Reilly" was...
Then this happened... Yes, that crowd spread across the grounds that lasted to the concession stand and covered the media area. My colleague Morgen said it was bigger than Foster the People's the prior year when they played the Yeti stage.
However, I was a bit disappointed to hear Mogwai whom was supposed to be the last act of the night on the Bigfoot stage, cancelled at the last minute. Instead Deer Tick decided to play another set of nothing but covers. I also learned that on Saturday, STRFKR played a second set as I Break Horses cancelled as well.
As for a favorite band, I really didn't have one as I enjoyed all the bands I shot and seen that day, ending another great year of Sasquatch! Be sure to stick around, as I will have individual galleries of all the bands I shot, interviews, and "People of Sasquatch." Now if you'll excuse me, I have a ton of photos to edit and sleep to catch up on LOL.
