I say that jokingly but I asked my doctor last week if I could go to the Sasquatch Festival (which is three weeks from my due date). She strongly advised that I do not go because of the heat and the fact the nearest hospital is 2 hours away. I joked that my physician assistant friend would be with me and she could deliver but she didn't think that was so funny.

Well, today the line-up was announced and I'm seriously bummed I was "strongly advised" not to attend.

Authorities confronted Sasquatch! and were able to wrest a cryptic note from the creature before it vanished once again into the mist. The note reads as follows: "The Cure, Modest Mouse, Death Cab for Cutie, the Flaming Lips, R.E.M., M.I.A., the New Pornographers, Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks, Battles, the National, Beirut, Destroyer, Okkervil River, Built to Spill, Jamie Lidell, the Breeders, Fleet Foxes, White Rabbits, the Cave Singers, Tegan and Sara, Flight of the Conchords, the Kooks, the Hives, Grand Archives, Mates of State, Thao With the Get Down Stay Down, Rogue Wave, Sera Cahoone, David Bazan, the Little Ones, Kinski, Throw Me the Statue, the Shaky Hands," along with a few more assorted scribbles.

I know this baby is totally worth missing these fabulous acts but let's hope Les Schwab pulls in some of these great acts!

Take heart! In past years, Les Schwab has pulled at least a few of the Sasquash acts down this way for the weekend. We're always bummed to miss it, but not willing to give up our trip to the coast!
