More Nateva Bands Added

Well, here’s one for all the skeptics who may have dismissed the Nateva Festival after being turned off by some of the jammier bands in the lineup: an updated band list reveals that there’s more indie rock included than previously expected (meaning that maybe the Flaming Lips as a headliner were a pretty good indicator of the general vibe of the event). Notable new bands on the roster include She & Him, Passion Pit, Grizzly Bear (I think I just heard every hipster in Portland gasp), You Can Be A Wesley, and – the only Portland bands I see on here thus far – Grand Hotel and Brenda (who are apparently getting all the festival hookups this summer – they’ll also be joining Wilco at Solid Sound in August).

How are those $200 passes sounding to you now?
