I just finally got around to linking most of the guesses for clue #1 on the website. Not sure if I got all of them, I'll check more thoroughly tomorrow if I can.
Clue #2 is coming tomorrow around 2pm, so get ready! I'm going to be out of town for the weekend so I don't know how much I can do, although I'm hoping I can be around a little. But if not, I expect some good sleuthing from you all!
1-1-12 Bassnectar NYE SHOW! 1-21-12 G. Love and Special Sauce 3-1-12 Radiohead 3-9-12 Experience Hendrix 5-15-12 Jack White @ The Ryman 6-7-12 Bonnaroo 6-19-12 Roger Waters presents "THE WALL" 7-7-12 Ringo Starr's 72nd Birthday Party Extravaganza at the Ryman
^yeah. we need a little more help on that one. I don't know what the deal is. Maybe it's a red herring. If it's not, we need a little more direction. All we know is that we need to find a actaul space trip that did not do what it was set out to do.

This is my first year of racking my brain over the clues. Are they always this difficult and do we ever get confirmation if we guess the correct artist? I'm enjoying the mind bending, but just wondering if it will ever be satisfied. Looking forward to my fourth Roo no matter who is going to be there!

This seems pretty on par as far as difficulty goes. And no, we don't get confirmation - they're not allowed to confirm anything.
It seems to me like we're getting a bit more feedback on individual guesses then we've gotten in the past, though. To be honest it's driving me crazy because it's causing people to keep tweeting ridiculous guesses because people for some reason feel the need to tweet guesses as if it makes them official...BUT we've managed to specifically rule out a few guesses, which is nice.
Overall I'd say the clues are pretty similar to previous years' clues, but it's hard to say when we only have 5 so far and a couple of those are still completely unanswered.

Yeah, I was all apprehensive when I refreshed the page today...was half dreading what I was going to see because I thought there might be several new clues that I would have to get up on the website...and nope.
Honestly I'm cool with it, I think 10 is probably a better number. Or at least something like 15...but I think the number we had last year may have been a bit much, especially when they started coming fast and furious at the end. This is a lot easier to deal with and gives us more chance to actually think about them and possibly solve them.
And bethtwit - I hate to break it to you but almost all of your guesses are impossible. You're guessing things that have already been ruled out, trying to guess clues that have already been solved, etc.
