Bonnaroo 08 wrapup: When the words fail, post video
All right, PopWatchers. It’s been two days since Bonnaroo, but I can’t bring myself to type any more adjectives. Still, I want to make sure you have the full pocket-pet experience, so I decided to embed a few things here to sum up my long weekend. Hope it’ll suffice — there’s lots of good video out there if you look. (And here’s a hot tip: Pearl Jam is now taking preorders for the official bootleg of their set, which is well worth owning.)
First up, this tidbit from the start of My Morning Jacket’s endless Friday night set. It doesn’t capture their luscious sound so well, but it will give you an idea of the amount of stuff (besides rain) that was flying through the sky and hitting me in the head. Yep, those are glowsticks.
Search “My Morning Jacket” on YouTube for more clips from the show (someone’s got the Kirk Hammett guest spot on there, complete with crowd shots that make me feel like I’m back in it; turn down your speakers, the sound is crushingly bad). Then check out my gallery of photos, all my shots on Flickr, and join me after the jump for good video from Broken Social Scene, Swell Season, and Metallica. Finding more clips you like? Post them in the comments!
Broken Social Scene, “Ibi Dreams of Pavement (A Better Day)”
Swell Season, “Falling Slowly”
Metallica, “Enter Sandman”
