Renee McMahon Beck!
Yes, yes, yes, your favorite mid-level indie band is playing Sasquatch! 2012 (full lineup after the jump), but when the lineup was announced tonight at the Neptune during the Sasquatch! launch party, I got most excited about the headliners at the top of the bill. Jack White, who recently announced a solo record, is a huge get for fest. And Beck -- who last played (w/puppets) in 2006 -- is a most welcomed marquee act for the four-day festival/retreat at the Gorge that runs from May 25 to 28. Other headliners include Bon Iver, Pretty Lights, Tenacious D, The Shins, Beirut, Girl Talk, and The Roots.

OK, that concludes our Sasquatch! Launch Party coverage for this evening. Check back in the morning for comprehensive analysis and snark.
