Originally posted on boomtownmusic:

In Part II of our Sasquatch experience, we highlight the shows we caught on the fest’s first day. We definitely enjoyed some bands more than others, but each contributed to a mind-blowing first day getting accompanied with the festival.

FRIDAY EVENTS

ZZ Ward (Highly Recommended!)

  • This sassy, tough chick will blow you away with her raspy vocals and bluesy sound. Despite being one of the first artists to perform at the fest, she entertained with a a clean set and really gave the crowd a feel for her rebel style. With a comfortable stage presence and a bit of edge, ZZ Ward could command venues as grandiose as The Gorge and intimate as a neighbourhood coffee shop. Check out her single, Put the Gun Down.

Don’t judge Twin Shadow – the man or the music – on first impression. With a beauty that makes onlookers drool and a swag so valuable it must be illegal, one would automatically assume that a man that puts his own face on the front of his record because he knows he’s a “good looking guy” is probably just as cocky as the king of spades.
