Bonnaroo Day Three

Finally getting to see Bon Iver makes up for missing him in January. Seeing him twice even more so. This set is excellent, the sound is spot on and has a guest appearnce by Elvis Perkins in Dreamland for a few songs, including a cover of a Yo La Tengo song. The sound is a lot better than the Sasquatch recording however the atmosphere didn’t even come close.

THE BEST OF MONTREAL SHOW I HAVE SEEN. The only bummer? Atrocious sound and it really comes through on the recording, it’s completely burried in bass. But man, they were on fire at this show, just spazzing out on stage the entire time and having a blast. Also, they finally played the Past is a Grotesque Animal. Made my day. Not to be a dick but you really had to be there.

It was alright I guess. Probably the worst Mars Volta show I’ve seen, but by no means a bad show. A few tech problems, such as Cedrics mic cutting out whenever he goes to belt it out, also Omar forgetting how to play Goliath. Sound turned out pretty well though. Also playing during the day (7:15 - 8:45pm in America is still day time) did them no favours.

Cedric also needs to not talk on stage. Ever.

What about me and my blue collar?

What you are looking at here is the only known recording of Bruce Springsteen at the E Street Band at Bonnaroo. Bonnaroo has an open taping policy, however Bruce asked that his set not be taped, and being Bruce the festival honoured this, I did not know this until after the set when I arrived at Nine Inch Nails and all the tapers seemed to be ecstatic that I was able to record all of Bruce Springsteen.

This set is AMAZING. I have never been in a crowd so huge in my life (85,000) and the atmosphere was perfect, just one big 3 hour sing-a-long. I was pretty far back but right on the barrier that went from the stage to the soundboard, turns out Bruce would walk down this path 4 or 5 times, and I sure as shit got to high five him. Also seeing Bruce walk through the crowd collecting signs off people for song requests was quite a moment.

The sounds a bit jumpy, the crowd is loud, whenever Bruce walks down the aisle I get bum rushed so the sound is affected, but over all I am very pleased with how this turned out. Absolutely killer set list as well. Bruce Springsteen is a mother fucking performing and an amazing entertainer. 80% of the set was drummed by Max Weinberg, the rest by his son Jay.

Nine Inch Nails’ last ever US show. If you believe they really are over.

Was an amazing show, setlist differs wildly from their Australian show and they play some awesome rarities. Can’t believe they did I’m Afraid of Ameircans. Playing from 1am until 3:30am was a perfect slot for them, they absolutely owned it and the crowd was incredibly packed.
