With Sasquatch 2013 now in the rearview, we’ve got an awesome collection of reviews and photo galleries to remember it by. We’re closing out our coverage this week with a look back at some of the highest highs and weirdest weirds from our weekend at The Gorge!
Most Dedicated Performer: P.O.S., who kicked all the ass at Sasquatch despite needing a new kidney, and spent 80% of his set rapping in the rain, standing in the crowd.
Best Non-Musical Pastime: Superman sliding leaps on the rain-soaked grass
Best Crowd Singalong: Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros during their infectiously catchy closer “Home”.
Funniest Stage Banter: Cake frontman John McCrea, whose witticisms and snarky attitude kept the crowd laughing through their entire set. “Thank you! Your attention span is awesome!”
Strangest Accessory: A bag of urine? What the hell is that?
Biggest Dance Party: Tie – Arctic Monkeys and Bloc Party
Most Misplaced Act: Elvis Costello & The Impostors – With roughly 90% of the Sasquatch crowd under 35 years old, very few people had any idea who the old dude onstage was, but danced along considerately with the semi-recognizable songs.
Best Onstage Collaboration: Mumford & Sons bringing the entire Edward Sharpe crew onstage for a cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “The Chain” – watch below:
Biggest Homecoming: Seattle’s very own Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, who was greeted like a hometown hero and showed big love to the Sonics with a wildly celebrated Friday night set.
Jack White Lookalike Award: Peter Hayes of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club
Most Inappropriate Brand Name: “Honey Bucket” portable toilets. We’ll never think of Winnie The Pooh the same way again.
Most Awkward Drunk-Chick Butt Flash: This one.
Best Quote: “Dude if you’re not tripping balls during Sigur Rós, what’s the point?”
Most Drugged-Out Fans: Sigur Rós
Drug of Choice: TIE – Molly and Shrooms
Happiest Sasquatch 2013 Attendee: This guy.
See you next year at The Gorge!
