oh-my-mother-fucking-god

so many great northwest bands!

Best 'Squatch line evar!

Got so excited I forgot to say "line up". I'll shut up now.

There is a band made of Mike Patton and Dan the Automator ...? Oh my god.

DESTROYER!

This is incredible!!!

i. can't. wait.

I wish I could go! Throw Me The Statue are fantastic!

Hmm...so let's see here...Built to Spill, Battles, David Bazan, Kinski (four of the shows I said were the best I've seen last year), plus the Cave Singers and the Fleet Foxes. Have the planners been reading my profile here on TIG?

Not to mention the other handful of bands I'm excited to see on there. I think Chona said it best: "oh-my-mother-fucking-god"

This sucks...

...because I'm going to have to make a lot of tough decisions on bands with conflicting schedules that weekend. o_o

Well, it seems I have some plane tickets to buy.

Shit. Between this and All Points West I just about spent all my money for the summer and it's not even March.

Where is the day by day line up???
i can't find that...:(
