2218 schedule::attendeesLocation The Gorge Amphitheatre
event::about Birthed by Mouth in the year two-thousand and five, young Edward Sharpe had to wait nearly two years before he was to grow his arms and legs and fingers and toes. Immaculately conceived, his father (a Robot who had magically become a real boy... but that's another story) declared his undying devotion to the creature. He perched the fleshy bust upon a teetering pedestal fashioned from stacked cereal boxes and positioned the display at his window for all the town to see. Young Edward soon proved no ordinary boy.

1725 schedule::attendeesLocation The Gorge Amphitheatre
event::about Local Natives make soaring, sky-scraping harmonies, dreamy orchestral melodies, and throbbing tribal beats that bash their way into your soul. Theirs are songs you can dance to almost as well as you can swoon to them.

646 schedule::attendeesLocation The Gorge Amphitheatre
event::about To call them multi-instrumentalists might be a little overdone. The kids in Freelance Whales are really just collectors, at heart.

2694 schedule::attendeesLocation The Gorge Amphitheatre
event::about What is this? Another lost LP from Brian Wilson's sandbox phase? If only things were that simple. What we're really alluding to here is Passion Pit's first proper full-length, Manners, a bird-flipping break from the blogosphere by a 21 year old with much more on his manic mind than girls, girls, girls. You know, important matters, like the end of the world and learning to love someone other than the man in the mirror.
