Sasquatch! 2017: Day-by-day highlights | The Seattle Times

If you’re feeling overwhelmed with all the choices, check out these recommendations for each day.

Thousands of people will gather at The Gorge Amphitheatre this weekend (May 26-28) to see their favorite bands perform at the Sasquatch! Music Festival in George, Grant County.

For the first time, there will be no overlapping sets on the Sasquatch and Bigfoot stages, which means you won’t have to choose between two of your favorite acts.

Here are some day-by-day recommendations:

Friday, May 26

Los Colognes.

4-5 p.m., Yeti Stage

This Nashville band features upbeat vocals and echoing guitar solos, and they just released a new album on May 12. Their style draws on classic rock in some songs and 1980s pop in others.

 

Thee Oh Sees

5:15-6:15 p.m., Bigfoot Stage

Formed in San Francisco in 1997, Thee Oh Sees mixes various rock genres, including 1960s garage rock and 1980s post-punk. The band’s February performance at KEXP shows just how loud and energetic their live shows can be.

 

Sleigh Bells

6:15-7:15 p.m., Sasquatch Stage

This pop-punk duo from Brooklyn first gained popularity with their 2010 album “Treats,” which includes songs like “Rill Rill,” “Crown on the Ground,” and “Kids.” (You might recognize those songs from the many movie trailers that featured them in 2013.)
