Wolf Parade's bombastic performance on day two of the 2011 Sasquatch Music Festival was a bittersweet one: After finishing a tour last year in support of its third album, Expo 86, the band announced that it would be going on indefinite hiatus after a small number of shows in 2011. Its set at Sasquatch was its penultimate performance, and it played with the force of a band that knows it will soon be playing its ragged, world-weary songs for the last time.

Recorded live at The Gorge on Saturday, May 28, the band performs as part of the 2011 Sasquatch Music Festival outside Seattle, Wash.
