This years Sasquatch! Music Festival kicked off with a bang! Well... OK, the weather wasn't cooperative as planned as it rained on Friday and most of Monday. But that didn't stop thousands upon thousands of concert goers from all over the country and even Canada from enjoying 4 days of awesome music at one of the most beautiful venues in the country; The Gorge Amphitheater. With bands such as Vampire Weekend, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, Mumford and Sons, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, and the return of The Postal Service closing things out.

Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready also made a surprise appearance on Monday performing the national anthem on his Fender ala that of Jimi Hendrix at Woodstock. Here is a photo recap of this year's festivities.
