Bummed you didn’t get tickets to Sasquatch!?

Well, you can always try Craigslist and pray to the ticket scalping gods in hopes of getting a good deal on tickets.

Or, if you want to get a taste of Sasquatch! without making the trek to the Gorge you can catch some of the undercard bands in Seattle prior to Memorial Day weekend. Sure some of the local shows for the undercard bands are sold out too, but buying a scalped ticket outside of a club or theater is sure gonna beat the cost of gassing up your car for a roadtrip east of the Cascades and the high-scalping fees for Sasquatch! tix.

Here’s a list of 13 Sasquatch! acts you can try to see while they are in town prior to Sasquatch! in case you weren’t lucky enough to snag a ticket to the Gorge’s season opener:

Smith Westerns — Tonight @ The Crocodile

The Decemberists — Friday @ The Paramount *

The Young Evils — Saturday @ Showbox at the Market, March 12 @ the Crocodile

Young the Giant — Sunday @ the Tractor Tavern*

Macklemore and Ryan Lewis — Feb. 25*, Feb. 27* and March 5* @ Showbox at the Market

Mad Rad — March 10 @ Neumos

Dan Mangan — March 11 @ the Sunset Tavern

The Globes — March 12 @ Showbox SoDo, March 26 @ The Crocodile

Gold Panda — March 23 @ Nectar Lounge

Foster the People — March 26 @ The High Dive

Pepper Rabbit — March 30 @ The Crocodile

Twin Shadow — April 23 @ The Crocodile

The Head and the Heart — April 29 @ Showbox at the Market

* Indicates sold out shows
