Update 2/14: It’s legit… http://lineup.bonnaroo.com/

Possibly a rumor/fake, but this potential Bonnaroo 2012 line-up looks way better than Coachella, if you ask me.  Well, RHCP kinda ruins it, but Ben Folds Five reunion show more than makes up for the Chili Peppers…

Radiohead, Florence + the Machine, Bon Iver, BFF, the Shins, Feist, Rod y Gab, Mogwai, Childish Gambino, and more… wish I didn’t live across the country now…

So far the official response is “we cannot confirm or deny reports at this time.”  We shall see…

they’re taking over

I don’t mean to make this a Sigur Rós-centric blog, but here’s Stereogum‘s great report from Bonnaroo 2008:

They (i.e. Barbara Streisand) say people who need people are the luckiest people. But you know who really are the luckiest people? People who have a ticket to see Sigur Rós this summer. It’s not that I haven’t seen ’em before, but it’s been 24 hours and I’m still paralyzed from the 1AM bliss fest of their set Saturday night in That Tent. Here’s why you should sell all your possessions to secure a ticket to see them right now:

  1. The current setlist is a catalog-spanning beast, showcasing hallmark moments from each of the band’s style shifts, from the dark and dank Ágætis byrjun, to the slowest-of-core unpronounceabilites of the ( ) stuff, to the triumphant Takkisms. (Saturday brought “Svefn-g-englar” [the “it’s you-oooo” song], “Njósnavélin” [the “yu-silo” song], “Olsen Olsen,” “Hoppípolla,” “Glósóli,” and non-album crowd fave “Hafsól” [the drumstick-on-the-bass song]).
  2. The Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust stuff crushes it live, comes with lots of horns, ups the band’s overall joy quotient, and really seems to have loosened them up, as people, even more. Last night these included “Inni Mer Syngur Vitleysingur,” “Godan Daginn,” “Vid Spilum Endalaust,” “Festival,” “All Alright” (the one in English!) and of course “Gobbledigook.”
  3. Umm, “Gobbledigook.” Which winds up having 12 people on stage (fully clothed, sorry), a drumline powered by amiina, confetti guns, and, most notably, a wildly grinning Jonsi.
  4. The mariachi band that parades the stage during “Sé Lest” has a pretty great outfit.
  5. They are the best band in the world.
