The Decemberists Visit KCRW

Tune in today (2/10) at 11:15am (pst) for a live studio performance by The Decemberists on KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic.

The Decemberists are currently on tour in support of their latest, The King is Dead, which is out now (grab a copy here).

The Decemberists – We Both Go Down Together

Sasquatch! 2011

The wait is over.  The official lineup for Sasquatch! 2011 is here.

The big names are a plenty (Foo Fighters, Death Cab for Cutie, The Decemberists, Modest Mouse, Wilco…to name a few), but it’s the slightly-lesser known artists and acts that make this lineup fantastic (Robyn, Beach House, Sleigh Bells, Das Racist, Radio Department, Best Coast, Surfer Blood, The Drums, Matt & Kim, Yeasayer, and more)!

And if the lineup wasn’t good enough news for you, in honor of the festival’s ten year anniversary Sasquatch! 2011 will continue on for a fourth day, running from Friday, May 27th through Monday, May 30th at the Gorge Amphitheatre (in George, WA).

Four day passes will run you $285 (not including parking) and are available for purchase here, while individual day tickets will go on sale Monday, February 14 at 10 am.

Will I see you there?
