    But isn't that where Drama usually takes place...on Stage?
    Its like the Infinite Monkey Theorem, if you put X amount of monkeys in a room with a typewriter and ask them to give you Shakespeare 99% of them will fling their shit at you while the other 1% will masturbate in the corner.

    that was a great review. thank you for sharing. this year's lineup had me really tempted to go, but i don't know if i'd be able to deal with some of those obstacles (the rain...mud...bad layout...), i'd be karate-chopping some mofo's left and right.

    What the hell was with the ants? I must have pitched my tent on top of an ant hill, every time I woke up, there were ants all over me. Ugh.

    Well Brandon, to me it sounds like the festival itself was frustrating for you which I understand. However, I'm glad to read that most of your music reviews were solid and it seems like you enjoyed most of what you saw. That is what it's supposed to be about, right?

    Also, no sweaty man hug mention?

    It was frustrating mostly for the first day. After I figured out where I was going, what to expect and was able to tell the tents apart from each other it was great. Like I said, I am glad I went and I enjoyed myself. I just think Coachella is a bit more user friendly. And has better weather. And bands. But that is just me, and I appreciate that Bonnaroo is different and strives for different goals.

    After I went to Sasquatch (which is nowhere near as hard as Bonnaroo), that was my impression of Coachella too. We are spoiled. Coachella is fucking easy. Everything is laid out for us. I love Coachella.

    Nice coverage, Bran, but it becomes a bit hard to take seriously the criticism of a man who doesn't seem to score anything lower than an eight. Especially when 10 is apparently Yeasayer. Gross.

    Everything was pretty great for the most part. My 2007 Coachella review has more varied scores.

    And Yeasayer was amazing.

    It didn't even sound like you really liked Wilco, you just gave them a high score to appease their fans on the board. Weak.

    Yeasayer is just more of the same meandering hippie bullshit.

    I really enjoyed Wilco actually. A lot more than I thought I was going to anyway, especially when I only listen to one of their records (the one most people dislike). If I was trying to appease people here I would have talked about how amazing Animal Collective was. Also, if I am not necessarily enjoying the song being played but it's being performed well, I'm not going to knock points off.

    You're just upset because I skipped YYYs.

    Yeasayer opened for them at that first show, and it was excruciating just to sit through them. And I shall continue to champion those gimmicky little cunts til they put out a second album and it completely blows.

    I enjoyed your review, Brandon. I've only been to Texas a few times and i had a good time. The only problem I had was someone breaking into my car in a gated community. The gate was not a deterrent it appears.

    Great job Brandon. This is really helpful to know exactly what your getting yourself into if one decides to go.

    After reading this, I don't think I could ever do Bonarroo. Unless I had a hotel to stay at.

    One should not have to use a fucking mnemonic device to figure out where a band is playing, as I had to (a is before i in the alphabet, That Tent is closer to the gate than This Tent). While I'm usually glad not to have to see a band at the Bud Light stage, this time might have been an exception.

    Thanks for the thorough review, B. I enjoyed reading this. Although I'm going to echo Rocke's comments and say that Bonnaroo is most definitely not for me, even with great lineup choices like Grizzly Bear and Wilco. 6 hour lines + jam bands = my own little personal hell.
