Checking in on Bonnaroo
Posted by T Rex on June 14, 2008
Only at Bonnaroo would Chris Rock be the opening act for Metallica who then would be the opening act for My Morning Jacket. “Opening with the title track from the new album, ‘Evil Urges,’ and getting right down to business with ‘Off the Record,’ the Jacket performed virtually the entire new album and a smorgasbord of everything else under the sun including covers (‘Get Down on It’), a horn section (feat. Jeff Cotton from Bela Fleck’s Flecktones), and, um, oh yeah – -did we forget to mention that Metallica’s Kirk Hammett sat in during ‘One Big Holiday’? He did. And it was great. But the actual highlight was whatever it was they played between taking the stage at midnight and taking their final bow around 4 in the morning.-Spinner
I’m seeing these guys for the first time on Friday night at Radio City and they announced this week they were going to play the Garden and it was only 2002 that they were playing the Mercury Lounge in New York City. This band is on fire and I can’t wait to finally see them.
Also to play Saturday were Jack Johnson, Ben Folds, Phil Lesh and Friends and Sigur Ros. Sunday, the last day of the four-day festival, was to wrap things up with Robert Plant & Allison Krauss, Death Cab for Cutie and Widespread Panic, among others.-Associated Press
