This year’s festival boasted some huge names on the main stage and Bigfoot stage – Father John Misty, Ryan Adams, Schoolboy Q, Spoon, and of course, the great Robert Plant brought their A-game and provided the shiny entertainment that people paid to come see at this year’s Memorial Day festival at the Gorge. But there were a lot of CRAZY-good bands that, although they didn’t receive top bill, provided some truly awesome entertainment. Here are four of my favourites.
Black Pistol Fire
Garnering attention from being featured on the latest Nicolas Sparks movie soundtrack, Black Pistol Fire brought the HEAT at the Yeti stage, providing an energetic two-man shred-and-drum-roll slaughter with sick beats that had everyone on their feet. Who knew two dudes could command so much balls-out attention?
Comparable bands: The White Stripes, The Black Keys, JET
Key track(s): Hipster Shakes, Run Rabbit Run
Shovels and Rope
