[Bonnaroo] En Roote to Bonnaroo!

Dear Fellow Music Enthusiasts, For those of you unable to attend the Bonnaroo Music Festival this year, I hope these blog posts allow you to live vicariously through a 22 year old college student on her long-awaited pilgrimage.  Hopefully I’ll inspire you to embark on your own musical odyssey.  For me, the countdown is nearly at zero.  We’re all packed up and ready to go and we’ll soon be en Roote to Bonnaroo! I couldn’t be more excited to head down to Tennessee.  I am an obsessive planner, so I’ve be reviewing the lineup and stage schedules for weeks.  However, my friend Gregor will be taking a more focused approach:  get Zooey Deschanel to dump Ben Gibbard so they can run away together.  We’ll see if that plan works out....  Perhaps Regina Spektor is available instead. Thanks to generous friends and family, we’ll arrive and camp at Bonnaroo in style.  I’m not an avid camper, but I think I’m ready for anything.  Now the trick is weighing who to see.  Decisions, decisions! My MUST see: Miike Snow, Stevie Wonder, Phoenix, Regina Spektor, Weezer, She & Him, Jay-Z, and Kings of Leon Artists new to me that are of serious interest: Disco Biscuits, Tokyo Police Club, Japandroids, The Temper Trap, and Les Claypool With pit stops at the Silent Disco and the Brooery, we’ll see if I have time to sleep! I’ll be posting throughout the festival and sending photos too, so be sure to check back!  Thank you to all who voted for me, thanks to you my dream is coming true!  Here we go!  Wish us luck! Abby Braatz

World's Worst iPod: Kajagoogoo "Too Shy"
Gotta love the '80s! Depending on who you're talking to, Kajagoogoo's "Too Shy" is either a song that defines the decade, in a good way, or it's a song that gives all other '80s songs a bad name. It made it to #5 on the charts in...

5 Things You Probably Didn't Know about Birthday Boy Neil Young
Happy 69th birthday to my favorite self-proclaimed "rich hippie," Neil Young. I remember when I was a kid, I hated Neil's voice. I didn't even particularly care for his songs CSNY albums, but the guy grew on me, and he's now one of my...

World's Worst iPod: Mac and Katie Kissoon "Chirpy Chirpy Cheep"
There was a lot of love this morning for a song that made it up to #20 in 1971 for the brother sister team of Mac and Katie Kissoon. The pair hailed from Trinidad and this was their only Top 40 hit.
