Bonnaroo Artist | Peanut Butter Lovesicle
Stage & Time | Cafe Where? | Saturday | 1:45PM

Pennsylvania-bred, Brooklyn-based, and London-polished, the two brothers and their cousin who make up the rock and roll trio that is Peanut Butter Lovesicle are more than ready to make 2013 their breakout year. The retro-tinged meets modern garage rock tunes they’ve been churning out have already nabbed tons of press attention.

Bonnaroo Artist | Ranch Ghost
Stage & Time | New Music On Tap Lounge | Saturday | 12PM

We already gave Ranch Ghost the Bonnaroo Band of the Day treatment after they earned a spot on the festival by winning the second Road to Bonnaroo competition.

Bonnaroo Artist | Rayland Baxter
Stage & Time | New Music On Tap Lounge | Friday | 2:40PM

Though he grew up in Nashville, it wasn’t until he began to travel and experience more of the world that Rayland Baxter knew for sure he wanted to be a musician. The son of famed multi-instrumentalist Bucky Baxter, Rayland’s influences stem from rock to folk to bluegrass to old country, and he channels them all effortlessly.

Bonnaroo Artist | Ri¢hie
Stage & Time | New Music On Tap Lounge | Thursday | 1PM

We already gave Ri¢hie the Bonnaroo Band of the Day treatment after he earned a spot on the festival by winning the third Road to Bonnaroo competition. What started as a fairly tongue-in-cheek jab at rock and roll attitudes and excess has become a sincerely fun, over-the-top, and confident live act that always brings the party.

Listen | “Party Hardliner”

Bonnaroo Artist | Royal Thunder
Stage & Time | New Music On Tap Lounge | Sunday | 8PM

Another welcome addition to the underrepresented heavy metal side of Bonnaroo, Atlanta’s Royal Thunder takes the classic approach to metal, without sounding the least bit dated. With impossibly thick, progressive arrangements, soaring melodic vocals, and top-notch musicianship, you seriously don’t want to miss these guys!

Watch | “Whispering World”

Bonnaroo Artist | Ryan Montbleau Band
Stage & Time | New Music On Tap Lounge | Friday | 4PM

Folky, soulful, roots rockers Ryan Montbleau Band hail from Boston, and their sound is a great callback the scene that Bonnaroo used to pull more heavily from. Fronted by singer-songwriter Ryan Monbleau, the group channels the laid back, technical, pseudo-jam styling of groups like Railroad Earth and the Dave Matthews Band.

Listen | “Dead Set” (live)

Bonnaroo Artist | SIMO
Stage & Time | New Music On Tap Lounge | Saturday | 8PM

Nashville by way of Chicago guitarist/vocalist J.D. Simo and his retro-rock power trio, collectively called SIMO, are a modern reflection of all that is great about classic rock and blues. Like a more psychedelic, rock-leaning Black Keys, SIMO are part of a Nashville rock-revivalist trend, and are inevitably destined for big things.

Listen | “Shake It”
