Bonnaroo Day Two

Portugal. The Man’s first ever acoustic set. I enjoyed this a lot more than the previous night. They were on a much much smaller stage and the atmosphere was just right, the first bit of sunshine we had gotten the festival when they came on. It of course being an acoustic set, the crowd is extremely loud compared to the music so this recording is peaksville when there is cheering. There’s a few new songs in this one as well.

Portugal. The Man - Bonnaroo, Manchester, 12/06/2009 - 41.4mb - 27 minutes

From the David Byrne Curated Staged.

I had never really listened to Dirty Projectors much before this set, but I have to say I’m quite the fan now. Was an el grande set. The crowd was pretty small but when they introduced David Byrne to perform Knotty Pine with them everyone went mental and it suddenly turned into the biggest crowd crush of the festival, was a great moment.

Dirty Projectors - Bonnaroo, Manchester, 12/06/2009 - 81.7mb - 52 minutes

A pretty damn good set. The sound is kinda messed up but I’m still pleased with it. The crowd was fucking atrocious, but ten times as huge, the stage was announced as being “At Capacity” for the Which Stage which means 30,000+ people. Crazy. Also it’s good to see that Animal Collective rotate set lists like a mother fucker. No where near as good as the Las Vegas show (Which I reccomend highly if you’re into Animal Collective, they also play 3 new songs in that set) but still a damn fine festival set.

Animal Collective - Bonnaroo, Manchester, 12/06/2009 - 117.5mb - 1 hour 12 minutes

And with this, TV on the Radio become my most taped band. I put this show up there with the Metro one, was fucking great, takes a while for the sound to get right though. Also the first time I’ve seen them play Halfway Home and with good reason too. The song very suddenly changes tuning half way through and requires Dave Sitek and Kyp Malone to throw off their instruments and start playing new ones within a beat.

You heard me rave about David Byrnes show at the Opera House earlier this year, well this was just as good. Amazing set list, amazing performance, amazing stage show, and thankfully, it sounded great on tape. Do enjoy.

David Byrne - Bonnaroo, Manchester, 12/06/2009 - 158.4mb - 1 hour 40 minutes

Officially the most unsatisfying set ever. Only 45 minutes (Shortest set of any band at the festival that wasn’t on the Sonic Stage), all of it pure awesome but it felt like it was over in a flash. Considering how much they had to work with they spread the set list out pretty well. Also this crowd is very talkative, but the show was a fucking party while the rest of the festival was off pretending to be interested in Phish and their 6 hour sets.

Phoenix - Bonnaroo, Manchester, 12/06/2009 - 72mb - 47 minutes

Pretty standard Public Enemy fare. Recording is a bit jumpy during the first song and then sweet from there on out. Performing It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back from start to finish.

Public Enemy - Bonnaroo, Manchester, 12/06/2009 - 155mb - 1 hour 41 minutes
