The Black Angels Passover Seattle?

When New York psych-folksters Vietnam play Seattle next Monday, Memorial Day, they’ll be joined by a “secret special guest headliner.” And really, with Sasquatch that weekend, it could be anybody: BjŲrk, Arcade Fire, M.I.A., the Beastie Boys. Or it could be the Black Angels, who are also playing Sasquatch, touring with Vietnam for the rest of their US dates, and who just happen to be free that night. Or, you know, it could be Manu Chao.

Update: Seattle jean-jacket psych-blues rockers Whale Bones are also on the bill.

Aren't Sasquatch performers contractually prohibited from doing Seattle shows during the weekend of the festival? Or does performing as secret special guests get them through that loophole?

Weren't the Black Angels just at the Showbox on 13 May (filling in for the Fratellis) as openers for Black Rebel Motorcycle Club?

That's why they don't advertise who's playing. Same deal with the Beastie Boys set at the Crocodile on Friday.

@1 - In '95, Stereolab did a great commute from the Gorge to the Croc (i guess I did too, maybe fans should have to sign contracts as well). The Showbox gig of 2000 though riiiipppppedd!! Have they been here one time since? When are they coming back?!

@5- They played last spring there. Hopefully they will be back soon, but Tim is busy scoring a soundtrack at the moment so it might be another year or so.
