Sasquatch! day one kicked off at The Gorge Friday and some top local talent was on hand to get the festival started off right. Two Seattle favorites, Ayron Jones & The Way and Thunderpussy put on electric performances.
Our own John Lill is working hard roaming the festival grounds to capture a lot of the action. Below, are some of John’s photos from Sasquatch day one, featuring: Action Bronson, Blank Range, Flume, Little Dragon, Mother Mother, Ought and another Northwest favorite, Sleater Kinney, who are flying high since their recent reformation after being absent from the scene for several years.
Gogol Bordello, delivered what would have to be one of, if not the most powerful performances of the day. This multi-national outfit combines gypsy punk, dub and other influences to create a highly energetic and eclectic sound – filed with highly charged and socially relevant political lyrical content.
