I wanna hear all about Bonaroo you boners! (That's the correct term right?) All I got was a text from Souly confirming that Pooch is the coolest dude ever.
I don't have words, Weenie...T'was indescribable and mind blowing but I'll try...
Top 10 Best Sets! (probably forgetting something huge) 1. Bjork (by leaps and fucking bounds, even the people with us who weren't big fans going into it put her on the top of their list) 2. Animal Collective (my ribcage is still bruised, most brutal show I've ever been to- in all the right ways. Fucking rowdy, they actually had to stop 10 mins early bc it had gotten so out of control, though I felt I could have gone ALL night) 3. Swans (evil old dudes slaying it, made it through 4 songs in an hour and a half, just downright impressive) 4. Paul McCartney (he made up a song about Bonnaroo/fireworks!) 5. Four Tet (genius dance party) 6. Grizzly Bear (best show of the 4 times I've seen them) 7. Bustle in your Hedgerow (sooo much talent, felt like the real thing) 8. David Byrne & St Vincent (choreographed dances!) 9. Superjam(s) 10. Tom Petty AND SO MUCH MORE!
Also the weather was incredible, mid 80's almost the entire time. The staff are by far the best, truly there to help not hinder, the lines moved very quickly- the "searches" took about 5 seconds, everyone there is the happiest person on earth for the whole weekend.
