Forget Coachella (Chili Peppers?!) — the real buzz festival, again, is Bonnaroo. This e-mail’s making the rounds, and while we’re skeptical, remember Radiohead’s farm gig was almost too good to be true too.Sources close to the Manchester Times have recieved confirmation that The Police, Bob Dylan, and Pearl Jam have been confirmed to headline the… More »

Radiohead @ Bonnaroo 6/17/06

I’m not quite done with my Bonnaroo coverage, but I promise I won’t let it drag beyond tomorrow. Some of you asked how Radiohead were. To be honest, I was sort of distracted. As hinted at in a previous post, I lost my wallet! So I had to spend some time on the phone with… More »

New Tom Petty – “Saving Grace”

Mr. Petty lit it up at Bonnaroo, so we had to let you get an earful of the whiskey-blues of “Saving Grace,” the lead single from his new solo album Highway Companion (out 7/25).

Beck And Puppets At Bonnaroo 6/17/06

Special shoutout to Beck and his band of puppety oddballs.Beck had one of the most entertaining mainstage sets, incorporating lip-synching puppets and a video clip satirizing Bonnaroo culture (“The enzymes you can get from fresh fruit are so ? epic.” “Jackalopes are an endangered species. There’s only a few of them left.” “Drum circles and… More »

Stereogum At Bonnaroo Pt. 2

Hey kids. Lots of craziness since my last Bonnaroo update. Let’s start with Friday afternoon. A press conference with Jim James, Lewis Black, Ben Folds, Robert Randolph and Jack from Steel Train featured lots of left-field questions (i.e., “What’s your stance on stem cell reserarch?”), but Lewis Black was hilarious. (And Ben Folds is so… More »

My Morning Jacket – “What A Wonderful Man” Live At Bonnaroo

Some footage from the best act Stereogum’s seen so far. My Morning Jacket took over That Tent Friday at midnight with a blazing set heavy on Z cuts and covers (the Who, the Stones, the Band). Rock’s best kept secret no longer, in their fourth year at the fest MMJ were not to be missed. More »

Tom Petty And Stevie Nicks Rock Bonnaroo

Last night Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers headlined the main stage for a rousing 3+ hour set heavy on the hits. One of the Clap Your Hands guys tipped me off that Stevie Nicks was gonna join in (she’s touring w/ Petty this summer). Sure enough, at around ten to 10, Stevie and Tom revisited… More »

Stereogum At Bonnaroo Pt. 1

Live from Manchester, Tennesse, it’s Friday afternoon. Thanks to the folks in the AT&T Blueroom, I can file a Day One ‘Roo report. Last night was slim pickings obviously — most of the notable bands that played will have other sets this weekend. But I did watch Matt Costa’s quintet maneuver from a Britpoppy “Yellow… More »

Bonnaroo Sold Out!

Last year at the ‘Roo, there was some mumbling in the press tent that attendance was down … that someone died … that flash floods were coming. Well, that was all true, but this year Manchester, TN is the place to be this weekend. The fest has now SOLD OUT. From their newsletter:There will be… More »

Bonnaroo 2006 Lineup Announced

Not a total departure from Roo’s hippie roots, but it’s nice to see Radiohead and Tom Petty headlining instead of Trey, Dave, and the ubiquitous Warren Haynes. This will be my third Bonnaroo; Stereogum’s highlights from last year’s fest here.

Bouncing Round The ‘Roo

Didja miss me? I tried to see as many Bonnaroo bands as possible. It’s hard ’cause they all play at the same time. Fortunately I ran into my friend Stacey who lemme hitch a ride on her golf cart a few times. The “flash floods” heading to Manchester never materialized, and Sunday wa… More »

One Week ‘Til Bonnaroo

Everyone’s making fun of me for going to Bonnaroo. It’s a “hippie festival” they say. Look at the line-up, though — there’s plenty of patchouli-free rawk!

Wanna meet up in Manchester? E-mail me.

Should I have a guest blogger while I’m gone? In case Federfetus grows a second head or something? More »

Anyone Been To Bonnaroo?

My coworkers are making fun of me ’cause it’s a hippie fest. But they’re wrong. There are some bands I’m really excited to see: Yo La Tengo, Grandaddy, Wilco, My Morning Jacket, David Byrne, Bob Dylan… If anyone has any helpful advice, like what to bring, what not to bring, when to arrive, etc… I’d… More »
