I made it home alive, as did Goldbeard. Good fucking times. Bonnaroo tried to kill me, but I still love that motherfucker so goddamn much. If all you lovely folks were there it would have been even better than Sasquatch. I never thought it would be possible.
Sasquatch Board invasion of Bonnaroo 2013!
Stories to come, but I am in the worst fucking pit of flu/cold/post-ecstasy comas right now.
This trip makes me want to do this exact trip. Amazing! With 12 months still to back out of it I feel comfortable saying I will Definitely be following in your footsteps burrito and goldbeard. You guys are awesome.
And when I say it's about the music, it's really about the music. The sets are longer, louder, and later. I saw several of the best acts that played at Sasquatch for 30 minutes longer, and at least 10 decibels higher.
The food is better than you've ever had (fucking bacon scallion sauce on a steak burrito). The crowds in general are friendlier than you've ever seen (60-something year old Phish fans give you pipes that they carved from elk antlers). Radiohead plays Separator. They clean the porta-potties (that's not a word, but portal-potties is? I don't want to know) more often. The vendors give you extra chicken strips if you dress like a wizard (thank you Dr. Garbanzo). Pot from the PNW trades like gold. Maynard James Keenan makes fun of hippies. Every band mentions that it's the best festival in the country and they actually sound sincere. It rains. It pours. They have taxis that take you from your campsite to the front gates and back. Air conditioned theaters where you can watch Rambo with Doug Benson and Brian Posehn. There's a 40 foot water slide that you can use for the entire weekend for $10. Did I mention 4 hours of Phish?
