Friday’s Leftovers: ‘Roo Sked

Hear that? That’s the clamorous sound of 80,000 laser jets jamming as they try to print out the monstrous tome that is the Bonnaroo schedule. Kudos to Superfly for putting together such an incredibly varied (and huge!) lineup.

The major conflict that jumps out as us occurs around 7:30pm on Saturday night. Festival-goers will have to choose between Ween, Spoon, Keller Williams’ WMDs, Ben Harper, and Franz Ferdinand. That’s five bands we’d like to see, all playing at the same time. Conflicts were inevitable with so many acts on the bill, so hats off to the organizers for doing a nice job minimizing them. Look for our Bonnaroo coverage straight from the grounds on the weekend of June 14th.

Now it’s time to show off all the shiny new links we collected this week:

  • The White Stripes have added another leg to the Icky Thump tour
  • Paul Simon reunited with Art Garfunkel and Ladysmith Black Mambazo during a performance on Wednesday night
  • Les Claypool is a versatile performer
  • Richard Gehr on the anniversary of the Summer of Love
  • Double J Jesse Jarnow offers up a number of “bobscurities” on the new Frow Show podcast
  • Dave Hill on Monday night’s Steely Dan concert

Have a great three-day weekend! Enjoy the sunshine, let your soulshine. Yuck.
