[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: Martika "Toy Soldiers"
For some reason, the song "Toy Soldiers" by Martika just made Jonathan & Kitty feel really, really old. The song was #1 for two weeks in 1989 for Martika, who started out in show business as a child actor. She had an uncredited role as an orphan in...

Dylan Noir
A new Bob Dylan video takes a violent turn. The video for the song "The Night We Called it a Day" from his Sinatra cover album "Shadows in the Night" gets a little bloody. But luckily it's in black and white so it seems somehow more...

In Search of...Spock
The passing of Leonard Nimoy at the age of 83 makes me feel like I've lost a member of my extended family. Growing up with three brothers, two older and one younger, it would have been impossible to not be over-exposed to Nimoy's Spock and the...

Who else still misses George?  George Harrison was born on today's date in 1943, and was only 58 when he died in 2001. I was interviewed by Channel 3 after he died, and I said it was truly sad for me, because I grew up with the Beatles and...
