Couldn't agree more. I spent almost two full days in one tent (Mattstick knows which one). They just killed it with one full day of Afro-beat and one full day of Bluegrass. It was like a mini-fest of each genre. Though to beat that... that's something they are learning from Jazzfest, I think. If you make one tent a themed tent you will have people there all day. It works!

Having said that, I'm doing both weekends of Jazzfest this year, so Bonnaroo is likely not in the cards. It's Sophie's choice as usual.
I've been coming to where I am from the get go
Find that I can groove with the beat when I let go
So put your worries on hold
Get up and groove with the rhythm in your soul

Yup, but they started doing that in 2002 with the "gospel" tent on Sunday.

Pretty sure it was "The Other Tent". Good times.

So far the lineup isn't blowing my mind, and the rumored headliners won't get me there either.

I spent almost my entire time @ that same tent as well last summer @ Bonnaroo -- some pretty great stuff went through there, you cathch Fishman w/ Del Mcoury, PIE-GUY?
Phish makes me happy.  It's as simple as that.

For 'roo to continue to be a relevant fest it has to attract 20-somethings consistently. That is what they do best. In 2002 20-somethings were into jambands. In 2009 they were into indie bands. 2010 promises to be more of the same. I can't fault 'roo for that.

I saw Passion Pit last year, too. I was not impressed, but they had the kids dancing like Phish used to!

You're totally right, and I didn't really think about it like that (The 20-somethings thing). Oh well, I guess roo just isn't my festival

As if to prove my point for me, my 22 year old cousin posted this on my facebook wall today:

Just two whiskies, officer.

I'm not sure if I followed this thread correctly, but what guys are saying is that Dave Thomas sold crack in inner-city DC in the mid-80's, right?

He really doesn't dress the part at all, but he does ride a fixed-gear bike everywhere.

It doesn't get more hip, or st00pid, than bikes without frickin' brakes.

But, I don't think our fans do happily lap it up, I think they go online and talk about how it was a bad show.

I don't know, I'd ride one if I had it and I am far from a hipster.
They're great on gas, c'mon.
that's great. people are stupid.

My records are my media for music. They are to be played. Loud and as often as possible.

He has a hand break to help him stop when he really needs to, but the fixed gear thing is strange. Still, it's a beater of an old bike worth next to nothing so he never worries about locking it up anywhere in Austin... he goes out drinking a lot, so it beats the shit out of a DUI.

Here in Gainesville you can get a DUI for riding the bike drunk.

you can here, too, but they won't pull you over unless you don't have a light. That'll get you every time. They are serious about bikes having lights at night around here.

DUI for driving a bike, that's insane.  Are they just trying to boost sales for the cab companies?
