The Flaming Lips and Modest Mouse may have been the biggest deals on the main stage Sunday at Sasquatch. But over at the Yeti Stage it was all about the hipster-hop, starting with rowdy Seattle crew Mad Rad, whose backing band included Mt. St. Helens Vietnam Band singer-guitarist Benjamin Verdoes.

Up next was smart aleck Brooklyn hip-hop trio Das Racist, who rocked a series of "classic jazz songs," harassed photographers and clowned sponsor Soy Joy as they hurled soy bars back and forth with fans.
