It was a wild 48 hours at Bonnaroo for some of the folks over here, and I wanted to share a little of our totally ADD experience and photos with you guys. What a party!
Let me just give you an idea of how hectic this was… Tune-Yards, Katie Herzig, Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, Sam Bush (highlight of the afternoon), Little Dragon, Avett Brothers, Feist (where I met my new friends Hudost who played on Thursday), Oberhofer, Ludacris, Rod y Gab w/ C.U.B.A, St. Vincent (my highlight of the night), Foster The People, Radiohead, & The Word… there was some general wandering around in the late night, but I would hardly say that I was coherent and paying attention any more at that point though.
Sleep came quick on Friday night, and, after a morning of refueling, we were back out for Cosmic Suckerpunch, Bad Brains, Das Racist, ALO, Battles (highlight of the festival), Puscifer, Gary Clark, Jr., Santigold, Childish Gambino, The Roots, Dispatch, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Alice Cooper, ?uestlove’s superjam with D’Angelo’s first US performance in over a decade (close second for highlight of the festival), and who in a 20 mile radius of the Farm didn’t hear Skrillex. That about did it for us. The early Sunday morning rain puddled in our tents with our brain puddled in our heads, and we limped out of Bonnaroo whipped and convinced that an RV is the way to go for these old dudes.
Some of our favorite photos are after the break (mostly by our man behind the camera Brad Hochstetler). Click on any picture to start a slide show with bigger pics. Dig it.
