And wow, you're like a walking, talking infomercial to turn people away from Pearl Jam and Ohio State, aren't you? Before you started posting here I quite liked Pearl Jam and was indifferent towards OSU, now I find myself wishing that Eddie Vedder falls down a mine shaft or that Columbus is infested with locusts
There probably be another category in the first post that covers open for interpretation but sounds promising. B/c Akron/Family and Phantogram seem likely from their responses.
Battles too seemed very promising ("maybe?! ") which was left off the front post entirely
I had Battles in "confirmed" for some reason. I will move it to "open for interpretation." I don't really see the need to get too specific with that category, as in positive or negative, that's the point of having it open for interpretation.
"In the darkness hundreds of glowsticks streaked the air like tracer shots in war. Giant inflatables bounced over dozens of light sabers pointed skyward. Stuffed animals impaled on sticks danced above the hot crowds, puppeted by someone just given ecstasy by a friend made seconds before."
I contacted the manager for Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears and asked if they were coming back. His response was:
"They played last year I'm afraid"
So I'm pretty much taking that as a No. I was really hoping they would be back too. I also am waiting to hear back from Gary Clark Jr. We need some Funk!
This is sad news about BJL, but heres hoping to Gary making another appearance (hes blues by the way). Ive seen him twice this year and that isnt enough! On another side note, I heard back from Gillian Welchs' booking manager and he said there werent any plans for Bonnaroo as of yet.....there is still hope.
