Hellooooooo darrrrlings. I have several indubitably insightful posts in the works, but nothing that is quite ready for your well-trained eyes. It seems the longer I wait between posting, the harder it is to hit publish. My vanity must grow well un-read. Blogging is an exercise in trimming the gorgeous, oft-blushing rose bush that is my ego. While you wait with baited breath for next offering, I’d like to share with you some songs from some bands that I am going to see/hear this weekend as I journey to Tennessee the for the 11th Bonnaroo, a magical four days filled with hippies, thousands of unwashed bodies, southern heat, great food, and of course great music. This will be my third year in a row going.My mom and I are rolling from DC to Tennessee in my beloved Swag Wagon (aka station wagon). As always: here’s the playlist.
Barton Hollow by The Civil Wars
Go On Say It by Blind Pilot
Cruel by St. Vincent
Twice by Little Dragon
Boys and Girls by Alabama Shakes
Bizness by tUnE-yArDs
Chapel Song by We Are Augustines
Tamacun by Rodrigo y Gabriela
and of course….the big ones:
Mushaboom by Feist
and last but certainly not least….
For Emma, Forever Ago by Bon Iver
If you’re going to Bonnaroo, and you see me wandering insightfully through the crowd….holla at your girl and you can meet my awesome mom. Oh and some help! Bon Iver and The Civil Wars are at the same time….which should I see?
