Rude at Bonnaroo --eventblogging as mock ethnographic survey of sorts, in the proud tradition of Margaret Mead -- and Body Ritual Among the Nacirema. (from the ever Rude Pundit, who's also performing there) ; >

I live about an hour from this event. Every year I think about going but so far I have not. I wish I could go take a look without having to actually go. *shrugs*

Terrible.

And you can take a look without having to go.

Many of the sets are being webcast here.

More like in the proud tradition of a self-styled gonzo Onionist, really.

The first year in four I haven't been. I think, for better or worse, it's successively transformed itself into the Coachella of the East, a pretty far road from the jam band hippy haven it was five years ago. It's strange that one of my favorite bands, Tool, is headlining there and that kinda disgust me on a certain level. There's a place for Prison Sex to be played, but it's not in those semi-sacred cowfields in a certain Tennessee valley. Really mixed feelings, in any case.

The writing is less then brilliant, although I have, in the past, remarked on the similarity between multi-day festival "campgrounds" and third-world refugee camps.

Well, it's rather late notice, but anyone know how to / have the ability to save one of the video streams? My girlfriend would kill for the Widespread set (on at 8:45 tonight) but she won't be home...

(I just realized it's 8:45CST, so there's hope yet....) BTW, thanks for linking the site with the videos! (And the original post.)
