Beat Those Monday Blues with More Blues: Washington Mile to Shake The Shack at Chop Suey


We don’t know about you, but it was really hard to drag ourselves out of bed and into the office this morning. Mondays seem to always be full of dread for the long week ahead. However, tonight you have something to look forward to – a reason to actually be glad it is Monday.

A perfect combination of folky twang and boot-stomping blues, Seattle’s own Washington Mile provides a balance of calm and chaos. Frontman Chris Wise’s old-timey vocals layered over group harmonies gives the band a raw, around-the-campfire feel, sure to keep your attention on an otherwise sleepy Monday evening. They’ll be joined by Young Lions and Gerhardts.

What Football Game? The Sasquatch! 2011 Lineup Was Announced!


Yesterday was a day we waited for all year – a time when fans of all shapes and sizes gather for one common cause. Yes, Super Bowl Sunday was great this year, in spite of the fact there was a football game on TV. We were, of course, more interested in hearing who would be playing at this year’s Sasquatch! Music Festival, the Gorge Amphitheater’s annual Memorial Day. The festival turns 10 this year, plus the organizers extended the festival to four days to accomodate even MORE awesome music than years past, so we knew this would be the lineup of a lifetime.

Last year’s lineup was going to be hard to beat, but we think they may have outdone themselves this year:

Foo Fighters | Death Cab for Cutie | Modest Mouse | Wilco | Flaming Lips (Performing The Soft Bulletin and more) | The Decemberists | Bright Eyes | Iron & Wine | Rodrigo Y Gabriela | Bassnectar | Robyn | Flogging Molly | Pink Martini | Cold War Kids | Old 97s | Ratatat | Wolf Parade | Chromeo | Guided by Voices | Yeasayer | Beach House | Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings | Local Natives | Matt & Kim | Deerhunter | MSTRKRFT | Trailer Park Boys | Sleigh Bells | Major Lazer | Das Racist | Flying Lotus | Skrillex | Fitz & the Tantrums | !!! | Archers of Loaf | Against Me! | The Thermals | Best Coast | CSS | Surfer Blood | Jenny & Johnny | Macklemore & Ryan Lewis | The Head and the Heart | Bonobo (DJ set) | City and Colour | Reggie Watts | K-os | Gayngs | Tim Minchin | The Drums | Sam Roberts Band | Radio Dept. | Young the Giant | The Antlers | Moondoggies | Sharon Van Etten | Villagers | Stornoway | Aloe Blacc | Black Mountain | Rival Schools | Noah and the Whale | Smith Westerns | Secret Sisters | Twin Shadow | Wye Oak | Tig Notaro | Wheedle’s Groove | Alberta Cross | Foster the People | S. Carey | White Denim | Washed Out | Gold Panda | Dan Mangan | Axis of Awesome | The Gloves | Cotton Jones | Jaill | Mad Rad | Basia Bulat | Other Lives | The Bronx | Rebecca Gates | White Arrows | Pepper Rabbit | Talkdemonic | The Young Evils | and more
