Sasquatch '09 re-cap

A month since my last post. The weather has been amazing here in the PNW the past few weeks. Our most recent fun was a roadtrip through the Cascade mountain range to central Washington to Sasquatch music festival. The Gorge one of the most spectacular concert venues in the US or perhaps the world. The show was amazing. We spent the first half of the day lounging in the shade on the hill and enjoying the view. The second half of the day was spent in the crowd, inching our way closer and closer for NIN. We had such a blast and I even discovered a new band. The Avett Brothers are a mixture of bluegrass/southern rock/folk. I'm pretty much a sucker for anything that has a banjo and awesome harmonies. My favorite songs they played were If I Get Murdered in the City and Bella Donna. Matt loved the Nine Inch Nails concert. As always, Trent Reznor was intense and put on a great show. The main reason to go to this show was because it's rumored to be NIN's last tour. A sad day for many fans for sure. I'm so glad we went and were able to enjoy so many different bands. Have to say Murder City Devils was a crazy set. Spencer Moody, the lead singer, went on a crazy rant and was totally nutty! I was competely rivetted the entire time.... didn't know if I should laugh or cringe!

That sounds like it was a blast! I had to download The Avett Brothers and check them out. I 'll let you know what I think once I listen to it!
