Some photos that were left out of VH1’s roundup, so ONE more Bonnaroo 2005 post (and two MP3s)…
Matisyahu Meets Mike Gordon
At 17, the future Hasidic reggae-rapper followed Phish on the road. In this photo he and Gordo are meeting for the first time.
Patterson Hood Of Drive-By Truckers
Saw DBT last NYE, so I figured I didn’t have to catch their set. Glad I did.
A shame that more people didn’t show up to listen. Everyone was at Umphree’s McGee, who I have yet to listen to.
My Morning Jacket & Friends
Mysterious maestro was conducting the band and an expanding menagerie of puppety oddballs. Surreal and totally unexpected.
Bagels & Lox With The Press, Sponsored By Matisyahu
Plenty of Cool Whip (?), but not enough regular (i.e., non-blueberry) cream cheese. Matisyahu was friendly and soft-spoken.
Iron & Wine’s Sam Beam Contemplates
Really nice guy. I told him I wrote on a “website” where he had “big fans”
Grapehead was the leader. In this photo, he was playfully castigating Green Triclops for dilly-dallying.
Jenny Lewis Of Rilo Kiley
Baby, she’s bad newwwwws. (She also mooned the audience for a sec, but my camera wasn’t quick enough to preserve for posterity.)
“Where Am I?” Board
Concertgoers can leave messages for each other if they don’t have cell phones and/or are tripping balls.
King Of Leon Matthew Followill Waits To Get His Baggage Screened
Stereogum is a pathetic paparazzi.
Passed Out At The Airport
These people are tired.
