I'm limited at work, so I plugged Moon Taxi into Pandora (ya'll and my real-life Roo friends can't say enough kind words about them). The first song it played was "Just Go Ahead Now" by the Spin Doctors, so I'm going to assume they're a wonderful nineties cover band who will bring back fond memories of Spyder Harrison's Saturday Night House Party. I'M IN!
A LOT of us have met in real life. Come to the brunch on Friday morning and you will meet a lot of us there.
There will probably be over 200 inforoosters there.
I'll be there. Where exactly will it be held?
Probably the northeastern corner of Tent Only. This is where we traditionally set up Camp Inforoo and hold the brunch. It will probably be the same this year. we will know for sure prior to the festival.

I haven't met any of you yet. THIS YEAR I WILL, THOUGH. I wandered around in 2010 trying hopelessly to find the inforoo brunch with a bag of Sun Chips, and ended up sitting down and eating the whole bag by myself dejectedly. They were delicious.
I usually don't care about any of the headliners when I go to Bonnaroo... for me, it's almost always about the undercard. The fact that, finally, there are some headliners that I actually like, is making me SO happy. Also, 11th grade me is flipping out over Radiohead + RHCP + The Shins + Ben Folds Five + Ludacris.
11th grade you and 7th grade me had shockingly similar taste in music.
I have never and will never say anything bad about Bonnaroo. I have had a great time all 4 times I went. That being said, it's with a heavy heart that I'm not going to make it this year. Yes there a lot of bands I'd love to see, but there's also a ton of bands listed that I've already seen or have no earthly clue who they are or really just don't care to see. I was really looking forward to going this year, but I just can't justify spending that much for a ticket when I'm not really pumped about the lineup.
To those going, I hope you have the best time ever! I truly will miss being on the farm this year!!!
I will never understand how people who live in Nashville, Knoxville, or anyplace else within a 3-hour radius don't go to this regardless of how great/not great the lineup is. It's such a minimal amount of travel, it blows my mind.
yup. god forbid there is anything even remotely comparable to this in the northeast every year
Personally I'm a big fan of Four Thieves Gone: The Robbinsville Sessions . The ones before and after that are awesome as well. I started off with "I and Love and You" and then went on to discover all their other stuff.
I and Love and You is good but it's a tad bit more polished than their older stuff.
Also check out their EP's.
I can put Avett's on shuffle and be happy with whatever comes up.
