Hey Guys. Originally came here just to prepare for my first Bonnaroo (thank you btw) but have found a lot of interesting topics to comment on. Just finished my first Bonnaroo and boy was that more difficult that I thought. Yesterday I would have said I would never go back, but today I'm thinking about presale tickets. I can be fickle these days.
What my user name represents/means: My favorite song from one of my favorite bands, White Stripes. From: Moved around a bunch, grew up in Philly, lived in Austin, TX for a while, now reside in East Nasty
Favorite Bands/Artists: Led Zeppelin, White Stripes, MMJ, Woody Guthrie, Elvis, Ricky Nelson and a bunch more and these are definitely not in any order.
Favorite Books: Blink!, Blind Watchmaker
Favorite Movies: Basketball, Top Gun
Favorite TV shows: Always Sunny In Philadelphia, The Wire, Lost
First Concert Attended: Bon Jovi
Last Concert Attended: Besides Bonnaroo, Deer Tick/Dr. Dog
Bonnaroos Attended: 2011
Bonnaroo Wishlist: Anything that incorporates Jack White, Zeppelin (ain't gonna happen)
Hi all. I Just finished my sixth Bonnaroo in a row and I've already purchase my ticket for 2012. I had a great time this year as usual, but something was missing. I realized that I've met dozens of people at the festival, but have no real long-standing relationships with anyone that I've met. I hope becoming part of the inforoo family will help me open up a little, and connect with people who share the same love of Bonnaroo, and live music that i do. NAME: Justin From: Grew up in Wisconsin, Live in Massachusetts. USERNAME: I camped near Inforoo in 2009 and got to meet a ton of people from this board. I don't remember any names except for Tara and Jess. Anyway, I was referred to as Justin#2 because someone else from the crew is named Justin. FAVORITE BANDS: MMJ, Arcade Fire, Radiohead, Belle and Sebastian, Deerhunter/Atlas Sound, Beach House, Röyksopp and so on. FAVORITE AUTHORS: Chuck Palahniuk, Saul Bellow, John Updike, Tom Robbins and Kurt Vonnegut. TV SHOWS: Most Series on HBO and Showtime. Can't wait for the new Season of Curb Your Enthusiasm. I'm sort of a couch potato, so I'll watch pretty much anything. FIRST CONCERT: RHCP/Foo Fighters @ Dane County Coliseum in Madison, WI LAST CONCERT: Bonnaroo, The Pains of Being Pure At Heart/Twin Shadow. BONNAROOS ATTENDED: Every one since 2006. BONNAROO WISHLIST: Bring back Radiohead and Hot Chip. Would love to see Trentemoller and Röyksopp come to the farm.

My name is Jim, originally came here off a link from another board and from the main site for some more reading on Roo. 2011 was my first time, and I needed to read as much about it as possible. Lurked for a few months then signed up to download someones spreadsheet checklist, but have stayed because the vibe is good, and the people here seem awesome.
Currently trying to sell my wife on going next year, and if I have to go VIP/RV, I will do it. Had the time of my life last weekend, and want her to experience it as well. I will definitely be hitting up the Inforoo camp/brunch next year!
From: Born, raised and reside in Ocean County, NJ USERNAME: Apparently the board censored d0uche bag, but this one is fine I use the real name on another board.
FAVORITE BANDS: Phish, Dead, Springsteen, Mumford, Primus, any classic rock and most jambands.
FAVORITE AUTHORS: None in particular, but many
TV SHOWS: Most HBO series, currently Game of Thrones. Silly sitcoms and most Discovery channel stuff.
FIRST CONCERT: Poison w/ Tesla in 1989, my mom took me (ouch!)
LAST CONCERT: Bonnaroo, Phish
BONNAROOS ATTENDED: 2011
BONNAROO WISHLIST: Dylan, Zeppelin, Roger Waters, Butthole Surfers.
