Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeroes played the Sasquatch! Music Festival at the Gorge on Saturday, May 29.
Here are a few quick notes on a few of the sets I saw on Saturday.

Check back all weekend long for Reverb's coverage of Sasquatch! 2010. And see how you can contribute to our coverage.

Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes, Bigfoot Stage, 4:05 p.m.(ish): Great ensemble rock in the proud tradition of the E Street Band and the Arcade Fire. Only hella sloppy. One of the more exciting indie-rock show I've seen in years.

OK Go, Mainstage, 4:25 p.m.(ish): Far more similar to Spoon than I remember, only sparklier, thinner, perhaps slightly less artistic heft, definitely less self-aware, and with a better live show.

Brad--filling in for canceled Wale--Mainstage, 3:20(ish): I overheard an adorable family with a couple teenagers checking out Sasquatch! together talking about "Wale's" show on the mainstage. Dad: "I didn't hear one bit of rap. I heard guitar. He had a great guitarist." Wale had to cancel. The band was Seattle's Brad. And the guitarist was Pearl Jam's Stone Gossard. Dad knows a good guitar player when he hears one.

Fool's Gold, Yeti Stage, 1:20 p.m.(ish): This jam band, posing as an indie rock band, loves them some African pop. By 2 p.m., Saturday, it was the early set to beat.
