WANT TO WIN A PAIR OF BONNAROO TICKETS?  You Ain’t No Picasso is giving away a pair of Bonnaroo tix TODAY and the contest ends TONIGHT!  Go show love on his comment board and win some tickets!



  1. For Friday, it’s virtually a perfect lineup. I’d probably get up a little earlier to see Portugal the Man then maybe Tift Merrit instead of Gomez and I’d probably see Paul Oakenfold instead of Girl Talk even though Girl Talk would be more fun just because I’ve never seen the legend.

    For Saturday, I’d get up just a little earlier to catch Chairlift & probably skip Bon Iver for Rodrigo y Gabriella.

    For Sunday, I’d probably try to catch an AA Bondy song or two if you haven’t seen him since he’s on right before Ted Leo who puts on an awesome show…otherwise, your schedule looks perfect, although you might find it to be ambitious

  2. I believe you should hit the first phish show as well. They are really gaining steam and firing on all cylinders.

    Everything else looks like a wet dream. Good work! Have fun guys. I love your blog.

  3. Go see Hockey Thursday night 8:15… I promise you won’t regret it!

  4. How the hell are you going to miss David Byrne? Guys, trust me on this one, DON’T MISS PORTUGAL, THE BAND!!!, they would be on my tops list…will be the surprise show of Bonnaroo…they play twice and they are great.

    White Rabbits
    Portugal, The Man

    Porugal, The Man
    Dirty Projectors
    Grizz Bear
    David Byrne!

    Bon Iver
    Of Montreal
    Elvis Costello

    Andrew Bird
    Ted Leo (Amazing Live)
    Okkervil River

  5. I can’t believe the Roo is tomorrow already! INSANE…i wish i was going, but I heard fuse is showing the highlights of it anyway so thats all good in my book =P They are also showing a Springsteen special tonight from 8-11..they are gonna show Bruce’s live concert, making of his album, and a loaded episode. I’m good on TV for tonight! check it out:
