Continuing Sasquatch coverage…

posted by on May 26 at 17:56 PM

…over on Out Line, I mean Line Out, The Stranger’s festival-obsessed, frozen-Ninja-Turtle consuming blog. Twenty-seven posts in the last two days, including from the likes of Bethany Jean Clement (on the beer), Ari Spool (on the fashions), Brendan Kiley (who stood there as an old man said to him, “I work at Coachella every year, but fuck Coachella, this place is beautiful. And I’m drunk.”), Eric Grandy (with an REM confession), Megan Seling (on the yucks), Kelly O (videos are coming), and yours truly (total number of frozen Ninja Turtles I consumed: 4; tastiest part: eyeballs).

Also covered: the Breeders (“Holy fucking shit!”); Isaac Brock’s banter (“Mumblemumblemumble had a shirt I was gonna wear mumblemumblemumble bullshit mumblemumble bullshit!”); Stephen Malkmus’s banter (“I heard that yesterday it was raining sideways…crooked, crooked rain”); Death Cab for Cutie (“Death Cab is a stadium band now”); plus photos of Beirut, M.I.A., and former Stranger music intern Robin Pecknold (have fun in Europe, Fleet Foxes).

ZZzzzzzzzzzzzz. Twenty-seven posts in two days and almost no comments. Can you guess why?

Every music fan in town is at the festival, and they're not reading your obsessive coverage. Duh! The rest of us couldn't give a shit.

And surprise, surprise, there's a former Stranger staffer in the Fleet Foxes. No wonder you guys relentlessly promote them.

Robin Pecknold's sister works for the music section of the Weakly. This is a band that will get it's unfair share of coverage through Seattle's alternative press.

Dang, now that's what I call a formula for success. Anybody in the family work at Pitchfork?

Why the scraggly beards? That is so Fleetwood Mac...

@3 - I've been reading it. I didn't go. What am I going to comment on?

Thanks, Liston for commenting about not commenting. Interesting stuff.

Thanks for noticing, Mouse.

The Fleet Foxes were pitchy and boring both times they played. Least exciting way to start a 3 day festival / cover for The National ever.
