Posted in Music, News at 1:54 am by Calico Jack

The sixth annual Bonnaroo festival is being held this June in Manchester (Tennessee, not England), and yesterday Live Music Blog leaked the list of bands scheduled to perform (artists that I would kill to see are highlighted in bold):

Wow…if I can swing it, I’ll be there. This almost makes up for the bitter taste in my mouth at being unable to go to Coachella this year, due to the small obstacle of living on the other side of the country. (Any festival that has the Arctic Monkeys; Interpol; Amy Winehouse; Rufus Wainright; Silversun Pickups; Placebo; Kaiser Chiefs; the Fratellis; Jack’s Mannequin; The Good, the Bad, and the Queen; Benny Benassi; José González; Fair to Midland…okay, you get the idea).

Still, Bonnaroo’s lineup isn’t bad at all — and even more importantly, it’s within a long day’s driving distance. I’m going to clear my calendar and see if I can get a group together; this would be so much fun to attend.
