Also during the David Byrne/St. Vincent show I accepted marijuana from three separate groups of middle aged strangers, one of which was Bonnaroo staff. It was awesome.
Excuse me while I brag and make a list of all the bands that I saw at Bonnaroo, so I can remember to write about it later.
Walk the Moon
Bernhoft (Do it, top 5 show there).
He’s My Brother, She’s my Sister (I completely hate that name)
Local Natives (they were not good)
Of Monsters and Men (pretty great)
Passion Pit (thumbs down but I’m not sure it was their fault).
Paul McCartney (Second best show, for me personally. He was utterly incredible).
Two Gallants (kind of sad that I skipped Solange for this but they were so good)
Tallest Man on Earth (unf.)
Portugal. The Man (whatever)
Kaleidoscope Spacetribe (it was Walk the Moon doing Talking Head covers)
I got distracted and missed Bjork and I want to kill myself for it.
R. Kelly (…what? That was the weirdest show. Watch Aziz Ansari’s bit about it, it was 100% accurate).
Jim James and his super jam. It was alright.
Baroness (SO GOOD).
Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros (as good as expected)
David Byrne and St. Vincent (the best show of the night and my entire life. Lots of pictures to come).
Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers (I was too drunk to really remember this one but I danced a whole lot).
Thank you and goodnight. Pictures soon.
Three hours sleep, then off to Bonnaroo. I am as excited for Bonnaroo as I am for the four day internet black out.
I’ll see you cats next week.
