SASQUATCH AND MACKLEMORE WEEKEND
MACKLEMORE, you guys!! The reason I wanted to go to Sasquatch in the first place, and I was able to catch him. SO happy. Also, best show I've been to, maybe even more so than Lady Gaga, and that's saying something because Gaga is hardly a concert - it's an experience. But Macklemore.... now that was just an epic freaking party! I have a lot of love and respect for Macklemore - he's my homeboy. Seattle pride, y'all. I have a lot of love and pride for my city, and his music exemplifies that. So, yeah, the show was incredible. Like, I'll go to every one of his that I can and I'll even go alone if I have to because I didn't even notice that anyone else was there with me. We just dance, and we cry, and we laugh, and have a really, really, really, good time. ;) [For those who caught that reference, we're automatically friends. :p]
After we partied with Macklemore into the early morning hours, we wandered back through the campgrounds for some sleep. I had to leave the next day as I had commitments and my ticket was a one day pass only. Leaving was so, so hard. I wanted to stay and see The Lumineers, The XX, Mumford & Sons, etc. SO. BADLY. Tough times, guys. :( But I'm grateful I got to go for the time that I did, and I saw Macklemore, which was the most important one to me, and well as Arctic Monkeys and Vampire Weekend so I can't really complain too much. :)
***I just have to add that The Gorge is incredible. Sitting on the hill at the mainstage and watching performances with that incredible (#nofilter) sunset and view as the backdrop is surreal. Again, one of the many reasons I love my beautiful Washington state.
