hey! [26 May 2009|06:41pm]

I've found reasonably priced airline tickets for my friend and me to the Nashville airport, the only problem is that I don't have $120 to get the shuttle to Manchester.

Is anybody going to be around the airport on wednesday around 12:30 in the afternoon, or on thursday around 6:30 in the evening?

or basically anytime on wednesday or thursday? I haven't gotten any replies on the Bonnaroo site, or on Inforoo, and I really don't want to hitch hike, but I feel like i'm going to have to.

I can definitely throw in some gas money (just not $120)

Please let me know if you can help!

Going to Roo again after a 3 year hiatus. The line up last year was frighteningly anti-Roo, so I did not consider going.

My hope it that the return of Phish (for 2 shows!) along with a few other staple acts will restore the goodness vibe.

After seeing the Rothbury lineup announced, which brings back nothing but bad memories of a wasted bob dylan at the roo 2004, I think the roo has the best lineup of anyone this summer. Hope I can make it!

ticket question [21 Feb 2009|02:27pm]

My friend got a group together to go to Bonnaroo this year. They already got their tickets and then asked me if I wanted to come along.

I haven't decided yet. When do you estimate is the latest I could wait until to decide to get my ticket? (Heh, did I phrase that right?)


Oh yeah, duh, first timer here.

Wakarusa? [14 Feb 2009|09:37am]

[ mood | curious ]

has anybody been?

i know they are at a new venue, new state this year, so it will be different in some ways than years past. But if anyone has been... what's the vibe like? the natural setting? the amount of people? the size of the camp grounds? how close everyone is to each other? the stage setups?

i don't like Bonnaroo's lineup this year, and the vibe has been off the last two years. I've been looking at the other festivals, and i've heard good things about AllGood and Bisco. However, Wakarusa's lineup is sick, and when they added Shpongle and Black Crowes, that pretty much sealed the deal. Rothbury and 'Roo would have to come with some ridiculous heat to even strike a match to what Wakarusa is offering this year. (and its half the ticket price, and for me, half the distance to Roth).

BEST BONNAROO YET! [19 Jun 2008|05:23pm]

[ mood | happy ]

Tom Petty & tHBs at 2006 will always be my favorite performance though...

However... this was my 4th year and it... was... AWESOMELY AMAZING TO THE MAX!!! I had some of the COOLEST neighbors ever, who became like family by Friday night. Plus all the other GREAT people I met. ALL the music was top notch, except that poser and his glow in the dark puppets, but whateva. This year renewed my faith in alot of things, except that you people will clean up after yourselves... jebus guys, there's trash cans EVERYWHERE, it shouldn't look like that every night! Other than that, IT ALL ROCKED! Thanks to everyone for making it a weekend that I'll NEVER FORGET!!!!!

Top 5 Shows
1) Disco Biscuits
2) Jack Johnson
3) Robert Randolph Revival
4) BB King
5) Charli2na backed by the greatest band in the world, GALACTIC

Other notables... Pearl Jam, Stephen Marley, LES CLAYPOOL, MSTRKRFT, Wood Brothers, Lez Zepplin, Dark Star Orchestra, Phil Lesh & Friends, Plant/Krauss/Burrnett, Ozmatli

Grupo Fantasamo, Battles, MIA, Chromeo

Favorite Vendor
Wormtown Trading Co.

This year really blew me out of the water with the caliber of music and the great people that I met at every turn. The weather was awesome and we really couldn't have asked for much better. I went to the silent disco for the first time since '05. Still have to ride that damn ferris wheel and tag the wall, so, I guess......

that I'll probably be seeing everyone next year... or possible at Rothbury, if that gets any better, I won't be able to pass it up...

some pics from the craziest game of poker i've ever sat down and playedCollapse )

Highlights [19 Jun 2008|09:35am]

[ mood | sleepy ]

This was my fourth Bonnaroo, and almost certainly the best. At least, it rivals 2006, which used to the be best. I had an amazing time, and it has been so hard to focus on the real world since I've been back.

Anyway, I just wanted to share the highlights.

Top Five Shows (almost everything I saw was good, though):

1. Pearl Jam!!!!
2. Jack Johnson
3. Death Cab
4. Donovan Frankenreiter
5. The Super Jam: Gogol Bordello and Les Claypool

Best Discovery: Swell Season and Grupo Fantasma

Best Vendor: The Samosa Man (oh my god -- tofu samosas with homemade hot sauce!)

Camp Luna Moth, our usual bunch, had a few new faces and we were only 10 minutes from Centeroo, even after a tequila and eggs breakfast.

I finally made my way to the silent disco and LOVED it!

Best Bonnaroo weather ever: enough rain to keep the dust down, and enough sun to keep me smiling.

And under the cut are a few of my favorite pictures, for your viewing pleasure: Read more...Collapse )

FUCK KANYE [16 Jun 2008|06:32pm]

Making us wait almost two hours for a show that didn't even last an hour because his egotistical ass didn't want to play at the same time as anyone else.  What a prick.  I'm glad most of the artists I saw on Sunday felt the same way and said so, especially Robert Randolph.

M.I.A. canceled her UK tour, saying during her Friday performance in NYC, saying "This is my last show. I cancelled the U.K. tour."

Is she also out for Bonnaroo? No one knows at the point, but it seems likely.

Hello Everyone!!! I hope that you are all as excited as I am about this week....it seems like I have been talking about going for so long, it is hard to believe that it is finally here! I hope this isn't an annoying question, but I can't seem to get a grasp of how this works. The gates open at 7am...but you can't wait there...so what happens? Where should I hang up and wait until 7am?

Oh, and I am coming from Louisville, Ky...anyone else?
