things to look forward to: bonnaroo 2010

Okay, we all love Bonnaroo It comes at the perfect time during festival season and it's usually a pretty great time. I'm going this year and I'm more excited than I've ever been. There have been some excellent acts at the 'roo, but there's something about this year. I still don't know who I'm going with, exactly, but I know I'm going. And it's nicethat it's so close. I always want to go to Coachella or Voodoo or Virgin, but they're always so hard to get to. Not Bonnaroo, it's perfect.

Also, Lollapalooza is looking quite amazing this year, too. I would go just to see American Bang (plus, Arcade Fire, The Strokes, Phoenix, Spoon, Eryka Badu, Minus the Bear, Rogue Wave, Wavves, Flosstradamus) but I"ll be in Pittburgh that week, so Chicago is obviously not going to happen. And Bonnaroo's lineup is more appealing to me. Not to mention, I'll get to see a few of the Lolla bands anyway (although The Strokes/Julian Casablancas is a very compelling arguement). I'm going to prove it by bigging all the bands I'm looking forward to seeing at Bonnaroo versus the above 10 at Lolla--and pointing out Phoenix who I REALLY want to see is playing both festivals.
