I wanna hear about Feist/Grizzly Bear at the Variety Playhouse. I'm probably gonna have to miss her set at the 'Roo...

Feist sold out before I could get a ticket, but I saw her at the Earl. (I got a free ticket to catch the Stills instead.) Have fun and be safe! I was offered a free ticket to go with a friend to the 'Roo, but 3 times was more than enough for me...Drink lots of water, and stay away from the wookies and the tanks!(that hissing sound you can't miss.)

Ah, I'm used to the wookies and you don't have to worry about me and the tanks. In fact, this year I doubt I'll even wander into the campgrounds since we opted for the hotel instead.

Ya, I saw Feist at Georgia Theatre a while back with Bright Eyes/Magic Numbers so I'm not completely bummed. I'll be missing her for Wilco and White Stripes, and that's not so bad.

I don't think we're leaving until 10ish. Nothing to do until 6pm or so anyway other than get the lay of the land.

I really, really hope I have time to hit Grimey's in Nashville and/or Grand Palace in Murfreesboro while I'm up there.

We had planned to go to Bonnaroo before John Darnielle announced the Mountain Goats charity campout shows.

Have fun, I'm looking forward to your reports, photos and possibly (hopefully) taped performances.

I saw Feist and Grizzly Bear last night, and they were both great. Feist has great stage presence and joked around with the audience, got us to sing harmony with her, etc... all in all one of the best concerts I've ever been to!
