Photo Gallery: 2012 Sasquatch Music Festival

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.

Categories: Reviews

Phish 08/05 & 06/11 The Gorge - George, WA Words/Photos by Phishbeard On the 5th and 6th of August 2011, the Gorge was once again blessed with the presence of Phish. Phans from all over America congregated for one of the most magical weekends in recent Phishtory. The weather was superb and the campgrounds were packed by the time my crew arrived at the Gorge to set up camp and prefunk for the Friday night show. We had numerous cars of people as part of ...

Soundgarden w/ QOTSA, Mastodon & Meat Puppets 07/30/11 The Gorge - George, WA Words/Photos by PhishBeard Ok folks, I first must once again apologize for the severe tardiness of my reviews. I have had a very eventful summer to say the least and my lazy ass never got motivated enough to post my reviews. I did however post 95% of all the videos I recorded this summer on Youtube.com. Now it is time to kick back and enjoy the hellride of a summer that I ... Read More

Phish 08/06/11 Gorge Amphitheatre, George, WA Words/Photos by Reverend Justito Note: As with part one, this was written on the trek from Spokane to Los Angeles. Pardon any and all typos.  For night two we decided to start the first set up on the lawn so I could see the sun set/get a different appreciation for the venue. Phish came out just as the sun snuck behind the ridge and played the worst set of the weekend much to my delight. It's not that the music ... Read More

Phish 08/05/11 Gorge Amphitheatre - George, WA Words/Photos by Reverend Justito Where I usually write reviews from my computer, we will make an exception and type this from gate B5 at the Spokane Int'l Airport (That's my way to say excuse typos/grammar cause I typed this on an iphone). You see, this is not a typical Reverend Justito confession. This is a dream come true because I can now say I have seen Phish throw down at the Gorge. 99% of the time you hit the ... Read More

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! Festival – Sunday 5/29/11 – The Gorge Amphitheatre Review, pictures and video from thenaturalstoner and Phishbeard   Sunday morning started off much like Saturday, with a whiskey and coke.  We battled wind the night before and made it through unscathed, but Sunday night would be an entirely different beast.  The shows Sunday were great, possibly the best day musically, but the aftermath was about as lame as it gets. Read on…. We had a tough decision to make in the afternoon, and it was unfortunate, ... Read More

Sasquatch! Festival – Saturday 5/28/11 – The Gorge Amphitheatre Review, pictures and video from thenaturalstoner and Phishbeard   Waking up on a Saturday at the Gorge Campground is about as great of a feeling as one can possibly imagine.  If it weren’t for the hangover from the night before and a tent in shambles, I would have been feeling great!  So of course as soon as I got up it was time for the Gorge breakfast of champions AKA whiskey and coke!  Drinks were plentiful ...

Sasquatch! Festival – Friday 5/27/11 – The Gorge Amphitheatre Review, pictures and video from thenaturalstoner and Phishbeard   Since we have 4 days worth of Sasquatch! content to post, I thought it would be best to put each days items up on ConcertConfessions.com individually.  Friday was the opening night of the Festival, and it was a super rocking good time.  There were less bands on Friday, and we were testing out our camera access limits, so the Friday content isn’t as voluminous as the rest ...

Sasquatch! Festival 2011 Preview – The Gorge Amphitheatre, George, WA

Categories: Reviews

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, ...
