great lineup - but a comedy tent will suck at sasquatch just like it does at Coachella. Comedy doesn't work at festivals, except bumbershoot, but just because they use the permenant theaters. great music lineup though

Go see the Upright Citizens Brigade! I live out here in New York now and I am addicted to their free sunday night performances of Asssscat! Amazing work.
