Steven Bernstein's MTO rearranging Sly & The Family Stone classics (Steven's name was misspelled on the sign I think, lol!)
the legendary Bernie Worrell!
another of Bernie
Eric Mingus was quite the frontman on "M'Lady"
The crowd for The Kooks at The Which Stage
Janson Skivvy is the Bonnaroo "Festival Director" this year...you may also know him as the "manager" for Flight of the Conchords, lol!
St. Vincent interviewed backstage by The Weekly Feed's Kyle Meredith
the lineup for the media tent
Avett Brothers on the main stage!
obligatory Bobblehead photo
I believe this is Hey Rosetta! at the Great Taste Lounge...heard 'em while walking by and stopped for a few since the crowd seemed to be enjoying them
Yukimi Nagano of Little Dragon
Chris Thile, mixologist
Chris Thile of Punch Brothers mixing drinks for backstage folks
turns out The Punch Brothers are great bartenders!
this year's drink was not as "punchy" as 2 years ago when they were trying to re-create 1930s style beverages...that's a good thing!
Feist on the Which Stage
Feist backup singers, aka the band Mountain Man
more Bonnaroo fashion...?
who could it be in the helicopter?
now that's not very Bonnaroo!? Someone saw this flag on Saturday and the happy face was right side up, so we speculated that maybe it's the sad/happy dichotomy of Radiohead headlining tonight, with the Chili Peppers Saturday? lol
Ludacris (pay no attention to the dancer doing a um, handstand in front of him)
Ludacris probably shoulda played the Which Stage (2nd biggest here) where Feist was around the same time...Feist has a big audience too, but her laid-back sound would've fit This Tent better imo
Sarah & Sean Watkins waiting for Ludacris to finish before they played the much quieter Great Taste Lounge
ok, here's Sarah & Sean playing for real (not just soundchecking)
Black Star (Talib & Mos Def)!
