Best. Festival. Ever.

Make your Memorial Day weekend plans now. Right meow.

But, don't take my word for it. Just look at this lineup and try to talk yourself out of going. It's just not possible. And, oh yeah, I've gone ahead and bolded the ones I really want to see. I just can't believe there will be others still added to this list. I mean, who'd they leave out? I guess it couldn't kill them to add Pearl Jam or Wilco to the list. Maybe even both? A brother can dream, right?

I highly recommend Sasquatch! It is a great little festival and the view behind the main stage is amazing.

Heads Up--New album:

Menagerie by Nous Non Plus.

It's a must have.

Remember your warm coats and sleeping bags and thermals because the weather can go from gorgeous and hot to so cold you're willing to skip the last half of Bjork's set because not doing so means certain death. Then again, Bjork's not on the rundown this year, so maybe the Icelandic chill will won't make an appearance either.
