Day two of Sasquatch! Festival spreads several of my recommended bands on several stages, including an afternoon – uh, daylight – performance by Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. I saw BRMC perform a daylight, outdoor show as well at Bumbershoot and they still made the atmosphere all sexy gloom.
4:30-5:30 – Black Rebel Motorcycle Club
BRMC will most likely feature songs off their new album, Specter at the Feast, and you will enjoy it.

7:25-8:25 Bloc Party
Brits Bloc Party put on a great show – really, they do. Those of you who appreciate great bass playing should check them out, as bassist Gordon Moakes is awesome.
9:00-10:15 The xx
I still haven’t met anyone who hates the xx. Send me an email if you do, I want to know about it.

Honda Bigfoot Stage
2:00-2:45 Robert DeLong
Robert DeLong was just in Seattle opening for Booka Shade, and boy I regret missing that show. We have another chance on Saturday!

3:05-3:50 Atlas Genius
Atlas Genius is here from Australia! This is a very likable brother-brother duo.

6:50-7:50 Holy Ghost!
Another duo that will get you moving is Holy Ghost!, who has quite a few gigs set up for June opening for New Order. That’s pretty cool.

8:15-9:15 Divine Fits
Indie supergroup (Britt Daniel, Dan Boeckner, Sam Brown and Alex Fischel), Divine Fits, work amazingly well together. You just never know with a supergroup. This one is great.
10:00-11:00 Tame Impala
More Australians! The Perth-based band Tame Impala brings the stoner rock.
El Chupacabra Stage
10:30-11:30 Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs
Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, or TEED, is Orlando Higginbottom (wait, that’s a good name too!). TEED produces, DJs and has his own album now called Trouble. Recommended viewing.
9:00-10:00 Surfer Blood
Surfer Blood’s second album, Python, has a June release date. You’ll probably hear a song or two from it though!
