With three recent additions to the confirmation list, let's review the six confirmed acts, and possible implications surrounding each.
Midnight Teleportation - Signed to Modest Mouse's Glacial Pace label. Does this increase the chances Modest Mouse will be on the bill? Maybe. Just as likely is the appearance of another Glacial Pace member, Mimicking Birds, with their debut album due in March.
Vetiver - This Sub Pop band leads the league in Vs. This obviously means Wavves will be there, right?
Miike Snow - Hopefully this confirmation will have no weather implications, but has me dreaming of a Licky Boom Boom Down Friday night campground appearance. This Swedish band has remixed Peter Bjorn and John (also Swedish), and have also been remixed by PB&J. Is it possible PB&J will return and collab with their fellow countrymen? Just typing PB&J is making me hungry. I need a sandwich.
Neon Indian - Rumpus Room confirmation. I'm thinking people will be dancing. I don't know why, just a gut feeling.
Pavement - Remember that feud between Pavement and the Smashing Pumpkins in the mid 90s? Billy Corgan threatened to not play Lollapalooza if Pavement was there, back when the Smashing Pumpkins were relevant. Pavement has a humorous line about the Smashing Pumpkins on the song "Range Life." After booking Pavement so early, the thought, "hey, now we should get the Smashing Pumpkins," was probably number 4,194 on their list of who to get next.
Wale - DC hip hop artist Wale recently had a hit called "Pretty Girls." You heard it here first, there will be pretty girls at Sasquatch.
Update: Consequence of Sound now lists Why? and Cymbals Eat Guitars as confirmed.
