I was excited for this show, but there are two other acts I want to see, and I'm not sure if I want my first viewing of him to be a day show, may wait until next year for him to return to the closest club.

to be honest, ive slowly come around to the idea that this will be an awesome show during the day, and im not sure i would even want it moved to the ln
on principle, sbtrkt should get unchained's slot- that is just obvious to me- but the way it stands i get to see battles-sbtrkt-mogwai during the day and superjam-gza at night. and thats a damn good day/night of music right there
battles-sbtrkt-mogwai in a row in one tent is going to be unbelievable, being up front for that 3 show stretch is perhaps what im most excited for this year (other than radiohead and flylo, duh). so yeah, i think id rather have things stay the way they are than see sbtrkt moved to be conflicting with gza
It's like, if I hand you a sandwich and am all "hey man, have a bit of this delicious ham sandwich," and then you take a bite and hand it back and are all "I'm disappointed, I was hoping for a turkey sandwich," you'd be insane

I still feel like it's a major snub, putting two (three? unfamiliar with Mogwai) light shows on in daylight to make room for Unchained and Pedrito Martinez. But I'm not much of a GZA fan (I'll dig deeper into his catalogue), so I can see how fewer conflicts is good for y'all. I'll be wishing for a surprise small set
Just grabbed the LP today... I'm most certainly bummed I won't be dancing my ass off to this at 3 in the morning, but if I can jam this hard in my living room at 7pm on a Sunday, perhaps I'll be ok at 5:30 on the Saturday of Bonnaroo. Super psyched I grabbed this album, 14 bucks for the vinyl and digi download. Hells yeah.
Saw him Saturday night at DEMF. He didn't have Sampha with him which was kind of disappointing, and overall the show seemed lacking. I'm a big fan of his recorded material, but something about it just didn't click for me in a live setting. I'll definitely stop by his set at Bonnaroo and give him another chance though.
