It's been close to six months since La Luz left Seattle for Los Angeles, so Sasquatch served as a sort of homecoming for the surf rock quartet. (Notably, they were met with weather that was far more Californian than Northwestern.) The move hasn't dulled their reverb-drenched edge one bit however, as the Luzers were in fine form during their afternoon set, opening with the always kinetic "You Disappear" and then diving into an hour of beachside haze, the band showed every bit of the skill and charm that they had during their triumphant sold-out Showbox album release show, their Neumos NYE double header, or any number of the memorable gigs that the band played during their time as one of Seattle's most beloved local acts. But during the part of the band's set dedicated to crowdsurfing selfies, it was clear that it, and the band at large, are clearly ready for bigger audiences than they had in Seattle, and they might only be one disposable camera away from that next level.

Peter Michel seems to be living in the breezy midpoint in between lying in bliss and getting lost in the moment, so it's fitting that the Seattle' musician and his comrades in Hibou opened the Bigfoot stage on a day that fell into that same feeling. Most of Hibou's catalog runs at a midtempo pace...
