Sasquatch! predictions and wish list

Tonight is the night I have been waiting for since Memorial Day. Tonight is the official Sasquatch! Music Festival Launch Party at the Neptune Theater in Seattle. I finally get to know the lineup for my favorite music festival.

Lots of rumors and speculation swirling as always about who will be there this year. Will Sasquatch be another stop on The Postal Service reunion tour? Will there be a big hiphop name this year? Is that big name Macklemore?

What we do know is that Built To Spill and Cody Chesnutt will be performing, along with a “very special surprise guest performance.” The party will be hosted by KIRO’s Luke Burbank again this year. I’m wondering if Luke will take the stage with a beer bottle in the breast pocket of his shirt again this year like he did last year. I’m thinking it’s highly likely.

I will be at the lineup announcement tonight, live tweeting everything that happens including who the surprise performer of the night is. You will be able to keep track on Twitter by following @whatradioblog or by watching the blog post that will be up on here with my Twitter feed embedded.
