Back on Friday we broke the news that NPR will be streaming the audio of over 40 sets from this week’s Bonnaroo Festival. We were wondering if anybody would be webcasting video and apparently YouTube got the nod. No word yet on exactly which sets will be webcast, so keep your eyes on the Bonnaroo YouTube Channel in the coming days.
Here’s a look at a few other stories of interest…
- Drive-By Truckers have confirmed a New Year’s show in NYC
- Spin finds out from Jonthan Mayers why they call it Bonnaroo
- Review: MGMT trips and falls at Friday’s Salt Lake City show
- Galactic (and Doug E. Fresh) bring New Orleans to the BK Bowl
- Check out this image of a funny fan letter sent by Steve Martin
- Arcade Fire played a surprise show on Friday night in Montreal
Finally, Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers’ lengthy summer tour started last week and former JamBase editor Aaron Kayce was on hand for Saturday night’s show in Oakland. His report for Spin Magazine makes it seem as if the band is already in fine form. We’re not surprised to see many songs from Mojo make the setlist, though we hope that Petty switches up the classics.
