Dispatch from Sasquatch

The Gorge has been taken over for the holiday weekend by indie rockers, overpriced beer vendors and my flower-headband-wearing, vodka-downing peers. (And all the others Culture Editor Mike Bookey told us about last week.)

The sounds (waking up in the campground to my neighbor singing, a cappella, Foreigner’s "Hot Blooded"), sights (a young woman vomiting in a garbage can while passersby continued to throw away their trash there) and smells (see last anecdote — plus, curly fries) are exactly what you're imagining.

But so far I’ve seen Vampire Weekend send a crowd of hipsters into a dancing frenzy, Nick Offerman (you know, Ron from Parks and Recreation) shirtless and giving life advice, and indie supergroup Divine Fits shred as night fell. Worth it.
