Sasquatch! Wrap-Up, Featuring the Beastie Boys, the Arcade Fire, Björk, and More

We paid the price in sunburns for these slideshows and live tracks from the annual festival at the Gorge.

A few of us spent the weekend at the Gorge getting thirsty, red, and inundated with fuzz, rhymes, and sarcasm.

In case you weren't able to see and hear it for yourself, we brought back photos and live audio of sets.

The stars of the weekend, without question, were the three rich punks in the Beastie Boys. The trio played a mostly instrumental set on Saturday on the Wookie Stage, and closed the festival Sunday in front of a wind-whipped yet adoring audience on the main stage.

— Check out all our Sasquatch! photos, including those of the Beastie Boys, on our slideshows page.

— Hear a sample of the Beastie Boys' closing set.

— Listen to the entire Beastie Boys' press conference, in which the graying rappers talk about a possible trade to the Arcade Fire and if a record without words can be political.

Other live tracks we brought back include samples from:

— Spoon

— Viva Voce

— Loney, Dear

— The Long Winters

— Earl Greyhound
