[Bonnaroo] All wrapped up...back to the real world...

My long weekend at Bonnaroo has sadly come to an end as I have returned to the Triple M office.  I had an absolutely amazing experience and enjoyed nearly every moment (the exception being waking up sweating and finding little relief all day).  The music throughout the weekend was diverse and sounded great.  The atmosphere and crowd was friendly and kind.  Bonnaroo was a wonderful experience and I highly recommend the festival to anyone and everyone no matter your musical taste.  I am already looking forward to next year! As far as music goes, my top three performances of the weekend include the hometown Kings of Leon, rapper and all around entertainer Jay-Z, and the smooth yet funky sounds of Daryl Hall and Chromeo.  All performances throughout the weekend were very solid. Our humble campsite Inside the Centeroo area Relief from the heat and humidity in Centeroo Thousands of people and cars equals...mud. The King of all stages, The What Stage!  During Nas and Damian Marley The second largest stage, the Which Stage There are three stages about this size, this is the That Tent Umphrey's McGee performing Friday afternoon at the Which Stage British folk rockers Mumford & Sons Indie rockers Local Natives on Thursday Mayer Hawthorne and the County jammed their groovy sound late night I hope this was not the first and last live show by these guys together, Daryl Hall and Chromeo The famous Bonnaroo bobbleheads were painted in World Cup uniforms this year. The wonderful people of Bonnaroo dancing in the glistening sun.  The man in neon has a sign that reads "Smile! You're at Bonnaroo!" I will admit, I smiled a few times this weekend. A short clip I shot of Damian Marley with Nas performing the Bob Marley's "Could You Be Loved" to close up their set. A short clip I recorded of Mumford & Sons playing their song "Little Lion Man."  Be sure to check out their release Sigh No More. Bonnaroo 2010 was a huge success!  Already anticipating next year!

World's Worst iPod: Hall & Oates "Method of Modern Love"
Hall & Oates had a lot of great hits in the 1970s and 1980s, and if you believe a lot of folks, this is NOT one of them! This song with its amazing spelling lesson hook made it all the way to #5 on the charts in February of 1985. We're a little...

Will this be Clapton's last record?
Eric Clapton definitely has retirement in mind. He hinted to Rolling Stone recently that he may quit touring and recording, and only play for family and friends. We can look forward to at least one more new Clapton record before he hangs up his Strat...

World's Worst iPod: Olivia Newton John "Please Mr. Please"
Olivia Newton-John was all over the radio in the 1970s, with hits that included "Have You Never Been Mellow," "If You Love Me (Let Me Know)" and of course those songs from the movie "Grease." But not a lot of people had good memories about "Please...

Mayflies: faschinating, or horrifying? You decide.
The mayflies were out in full force over the past couple days. Now I've heard about these insects over the years, but have never experienced a mayfly swarm. I think I'm pretty happy about that. Apparently the mayflies were so thick they...

Free downloads: The Bayonets
If you were listening to Triple M on the morning of Thursday July 17th, you may have thought somehow we slipped back to 1965. But it wasn't an old song we were playing--it was a brand new one from the Los Angeles band the Bayonets, called "Crash...

World's Worst iPod: Information Society "What's On Your Mind (Pure Energy)"
There's something about the allure of Star Trek that made this song by Information Society extra special. It went all the way to #9 on the charts in 1988 for the band based in St. Paul, Minnesota. According to wikipedia, the band got the...

It's not *that* kind of pool party! ~ Stevi
Pool party's are the best! ...Until someone decides to drive a vehicle in for a swim. Someone should have told her Jeeps don't make good pool toys, and aren't boyant. Check it out, it'll make you feel better about that time you walked out...
