Categories: Reviews

You could use a ton of clichés to describe our pal Phishbeard. Let’s just say homeboy marches to the beat of his own drum. A nomad, a free spirit, someone who shoots first and asks questions later. Homeboy spent Memorial Day weekend at the Gorge enjoying the 2012 Sasquatch Music Festival. He took no less than 1200 photos. Here are the best ones. We hope you enjoy.

Sasquatch! Festival – Monday 5/30/11 – The Gorge Amphitheatre Review, pictures and video from thenaturalstoner   Monday morning was a little bittersweet.  Of course we started with a morning drink, but Mr. Sparkly was already gone for a couple days and Phishbeard was unable to stay for one last blow out, so I rocked Monday at the Gorge solo.  I had company from our neighbors of course, and the day turned out to be a total success.  I got to meet an artist I really ...

Sasquatch!

Sasquatch!

Sasquatch! Festival 2011 Preview By thenaturalstoner It’s hard to believe that out of over 100 bands performing at this years Sasquatch! Music Festival at the Gorge Amphitheatre, I have only seen two.  I go to a lot of concerts, and like a lot of these bands, so it’s really freaking odd to me that I have only seen the Old 97’s (at an old Bumbershoot Festival in Seattle, approx. 10 years ago) and Sharon Jones, although I didn’t see her with the Dap-Kings, ...
