Sunday, May 29th marks day three of Sasquatch, with one of Seattle’s most-beloved bands, Tacocat hitting the Sasquatch. Their show is pretty early – at 1:00 in the afternoon – but you can manage that. Other big news, of course, includes the Cure playing that same stage at 11 PM. Drink your coffee.
Why You Want to See Them: People really love Tacocat. I mean, they really love Tacocat (we’ve featured the band several times on Back Beat Seattle). This year, Tacocat received huge Warner Bros.-type exposure by recording “Who’s Got the Power?”, from the Powerpuff Girls.
Why You Want to See Them: In 2016, Los Angeles quartet Saint Motel released “Cold Cold Man,” its first new song in two years. The song is recognizably Saint Motel (I’m a fan), and it begs the question, “What has Saint Motel been up to?” A couple EPs; one I have and can vouch for completely. So. . . more on its way?
Why You Want to See Him: The wonderful R&B singer-songwriter Leon Bridges also appears at the Sasquatch Stage. Undoubtably you know his # 1 hit, “Smooth Sailin’.” You should appreciate him. Bridges has one of the busiest tour schedules I’ve seen this year, but the Sasquatch date is the only show anywhere near Seattle at least through the fall.
11 PM-1:30 AM
Why You Want to See Them: It’s the Cure. Why wouldn’t you want to see them?
Big Grams (Big Boi + Phantogram)
12:30 AM-1:30 AM
Why You Want to See Them: The most likely show people will turn up to out of curiosity. I’m not saying they’re unworthy of attention, but festival attendees will first be drawn to find out what you get when you combine rapper Big Boi and electronic duo Phantogram.
