Good call on finding bands that Bonnaroo has followed since a few months ago.
That was one way that we got a lineup leaked....or artists leaked hours early was when Bonnaroo started adding bands to their myspace friends or something like that. Eventually they started adding random weird ones to throw us off but they still revealed a few.
Could be something to it.
Roo seems to always make these little mistakes, which I love.
Anyone remember in 09 when all the bands posted on myspace before the lineup was announced? That was awesome.

I had messaged Murder by Death a while back to see if they'd be at Roo since they weren't touring near me this year...their response was "We wish"....sounds like they've never been asked which seems weird since I imagine they'd fit in well..not a huge band, but figured I'd post!

I listened to Swans today on Spotify. I dont get it. I tried listening to several different songs, and I couldn't stand it. To each their own, but I won't be adding to the crowd in that tent.
Yeah man its not for everyone. They are kind of part of an early 80s movement called No Wave. Other bands in the movement include James Chance & the Contortions, Mars, and DNA. They are the precursors to a lot of Noise genre type acts, and the early industrial scene. Really weird stuff.
i checked out one song at random by Swan, cant remember the name of it, but it was like 30 mins long, and reminded me a bit of Mogwai, not a bad thing, but need to be in a certain mood to try it out again,
