Videos: Local music on the move, Sasquatch! 2014 edition

It’s Sasquatch! weekend once again (also known, to others, as Memorial Day weekend). We recruited three local acts that will be taking the stage this weekend at the Gorge, and had them do a song on the go for us. It’s not quite planes, trains and automobiles, but you’ll definitely notice a transportation theme.

For our full preview of the Sasquatch experience, head over here.

In retrospect, last year’s Sasquatch was a seminal event.

The enthusiasm generated for the festival in 2013 — tickets sold out in 90 minutes — allowed the festival to sprawl over two weekends this time around.  That Coachella-esque expansion has accelerated some of the trends that have slowly changed the face of this beast over the last several years.

With the induction of the two-weekend schedule, one thing is clear: Sasquatch has lumbered out of the misty forests of neofolk and obscure indie rock, and into the sunny, solo-cup strewn field of EDM and party pop.
