this year’s bonnaroo lineup is being announced today…starting at noon today, they began revealing one artist at a time every 5 minutes on their myspace page. pretty annoying actually…anyway it is going on right now if you want to check it out here. so far, among the performers they’ve announced are the avett brothers, weezer, phoenix, the xx, ok go, jay z, theivery corporation, jimmy cliff and the flaming lips performing “dark side of the moon” with stardeath and white dwarfs.
i know it’s not over yet but i’ll admit, with the exception of jimmy cliff (which is rad), i’m a little disappointed. maybe because i was at the second bonnaroo when the headliners were neil young, widespread panic and the dead. it seems like each year it gets a little more mainstream. what do you guys think?
on a more positive note, i love this photo shoot by dan martensen that was taken at bonnaroo ’08 (i was there that year, too)! as i mentioned yesterday, martensen shot our new february catalog, and our team was very inspired by this photo shoot – i can see why!
