Riggsveda's Tiny Universe Gets Expanded

The one and only Riggsveda progeny headed down to TN on Thursday without a banjo on her knee, hepped up to see the Bonnaroo. Dare I admit it? I had no clue as to what she was talking about, until she sat down at the computer and pulled up the website. It states: "A four-day, multi-stage camping festival held on a 700-acre farm in Manchester, Tennessee, the event’s first three annual installments each sold out up to 90,000 tickets with no traditional advertising—an unprecedented achievement...In addition to dozens of epic performances, the festival buzzes with round-the-clock attractions and activities including a classic arcade, cinema, comedy club, theater performers, beer festival, playground, kids area, artist workshops, yoga classes, and a music technology village, not to mention over a hundred vendors, cafes, and concessionaires providing high quality crafts and foods."
jm_belatrio01_6-10-05_jm jm_karldenson09_6-11-05_jm What a lineup! Everybody from Karl Denson's Tiny Universe to Bela Fleck, with Madeleine Peyroux and Herbie Hancock in between. Allman Bros., Black Crowes, Dave Matthews, Allison Krauss, Toots and the Maytalls, Ollabelle, De La Soul, Earl Scruggs, and ...Jesus, what an eclectic line-up. Plus movies, games, auctions, charities, yoga, a masquerade ball, and too much more. I'm thinking this may be my second chance to do the Woodstock thing, and giving serious consideration to going next year.

I hear the barbecue in TN is fabulous.

UPDATE: I stumbled over Mouthful of Feathers' website, and whaddya know? Bonaroo blogging! (Very nice site.)
