Bonnaroo preview – The White Buffalo

If you are planning to go to Bonnaroo (and care enough about music to have found this blog), I assume that everyone knows the first 10 to 15 lines on the bonnaroo artist lineup.  So, my intention here is to give you a number of daily blog posts heading up to the festival introducing you (and myself for some of them) to the “bands at the bottom of Bonnaroo”.  One of my favorite things to do at festivals is to avoid the huge crowds for the bands I’ve seen a dozen times, and to wander through the lesser known stages to find the gems of tomorrow.  Maybe we’ll bump into each other there!

The White Buffalo is Man. Guitar. Whiskey.  This guy sounds like what you would expect to hear from the diviest dive bar in town, and that is just fine with me.  He sort of reminds me of a mix between Jack White and Tom Waits….  One thing is for sure, the man sounds all-Nashville.  Check him out at the On Tap Lounge on Sunday between 4pm and 4:50pm.

More information and more songs to hear, check out his website or the Bonnaroo website, and here are a couple of links to some of his music (including a bad ass cover of “Highway Man”).
