Haven't listened enough to form an opinion. I think the only Matthew Sweet album i have is 100% Fun, and the first song that comes to my head is Superdeformed from the No Alternative Aids benefit album. Maybe i should look through some more of his stuff sometime.
10/12 - Man Man
10/14 - Fiona Apple & Blake Mills
10/25 - Mike Doughty (Used To Be In) Soul Coughing
10/26 - The Head and The Heart

11/22 - Elton John

Anyone else have a soft spot for Best Coast? I think a return is possible
As has been mentioned, it won't be this year, but I like them, too. They had a pretty bad showing in at Bonnaroo 2011 in my opinion, but I saw them in a club about a year later and really enjoyed the show. Plus they walked onstage to the Beach Boys' Let's Go Away for Awhile, which is always a plus.
And please, show me some evidence of when I said something like "Phil Lesh is an unopposed headliner." I'm sure I've said something like "Phil Lesh COULD be an unopposed headliner" seeing as how it's happened before and I'm not brain damaged enough to think it couldn't happen again, but I really don't think I ever said the thing you think i said.
I'm really not interested in scrolling through to find where you said it. Also, it couldn't ever happen again.
Best Coast's first album is sweet. I'll stand by it and recommend it to anyone. It's not exactly groundbreaking - just a bunch of poppy three chord songs with a surf rock vibe.

Last year was the first in a while Bonnaroo hasn't had a contemporary country artist. If they don't continue that trend this year(Which I know most, ok almost all of you would be ok with) I'm hoping for Florida Georgia Line. As far as popular-radio country goes, they seem to be the closest to rock(i.e. Eric Church) that are still a small enough act that roo may add and roo seems to have a history of grabbing these kinds of acts before they blow up(which I see happening). They play in Chattanooga the weekend before Roo(not sure how the proximity clause works for the lower card), so I'm gonna say it's atleast plausible.

Didn't The Civil Wars fall into that category? I'm not a mainstream country fan by any means but I definitely remember them battling the likes of Kenny Chesney at the Grammy's.
Ya, I guess you're right, I was generally speaking about pure radio country. I consider Civil Wars to fall more into a Folk/Americana catagor. Symantics really, I was just refering to the days when roo had people like ZBB, Dierks Bentely, Miranda Lambert, etc....
;D Also, I would love to see March Fourth Marching Band on the farm. M4 It might have to do with years of me "under the lights" on Friday nights, but I love the sound of a marching band. M4 takes that excitement and magnifies it with a funky electric bass and soulful vocals, then tops it with a burlesque show and stilts to make M4 an experience that should not be missed! M4 is able to march the festival grounds, I hope their schedule allows it. Either way, they will totally enhance the Bonnaroo experience and entertain all that get to see them.
Check them out.
also, M4 should not be confused with another good marching band out of KY, known as Marching Maddness.
