The fourth and final day of Sasquatch was the hottest of all. We had been on the fence about leaving on Sunday, but ultimately decided we could handle one more night. Our newest camping neighbors had a DJ (?!) hunched over a laptop in the front seat of a huge truck, blaring music for the entire campground to hear at 2 am! His "set" included such favorites as The Eagles, some very depressing Radiohead, but mostly just trance (trance, trance).
Don't Talk to the Cops was the perfect last music to see. I don't think I have ever been more determined to dance at 4 pm in the blazing sun. Kids in gold lamé leggings and bikinis were losing their minds. A girl next to me was actually dirty dancing! There was a lot of guest star action - OC Notes and Ronnie Voice shared the mics, while Them Team did some impressive breakdancing without succumbing to heat stroke. Trent Moorman drummed better than any computer ever and Josh Rule played a different instrument every few minutes like it was NBD.

Don't Talk to the Cops
After trying to understand so much music all weekend, it was good to just hear tunes I knew and loved, from Seattle, from right now!
