But, as with Coachella, there are some hidden gems of the festival that you need to check out. Some are groups on the verge of breaking through, some are already great bands that just got a bum set time, and others are already popular artists who are going to have some special things in this setting that you may not have realized. So click here to start our list of the 10 less obvious must-see sets for Sasquatch ’13, and look for more coverage this weekend.
Strand of Oaks (6:10 Friday, Yeti Stage): Even though you'll find a gaggle of sad singer/songwriters this weekend (is gaggle right for this? I'm going with gaggle) do yourself a favor and catch Strand of Oaks on Friday afternoon. Lavishly produced and deeply cathartic, Tim Showalter's songs also revel in their own surreal world. Listen to the SNL-inspired murder ballad "Daniel's Blues," which chronicles Dan Aykroyd's violent revenge for John Belushi's death.
