Seems like a lot of people on the board are going solo this year (including myself). As a fellow lady, don't fear, you won't feel unsafe. Just don't put yourself in any stupid situations if you are doing things on your own. I'm sure the experience will be a little overwhelming at first, but you'll have fun, solo or not!
I'm pretty sure the show last night went longer than anticipated, and it seemed like Moon Taxi played more songs than they planned on. But everyone there was really into it, so it was awesome.
Local Natives are amazing live! I was obsessed with them right after roo, they were pretty much all I was listening to. I saw them in the fall and was so worried their show wouldn't live up to their bonnaroo performance, but it did. That made me happy.

I don't know if I am going to make their set this year, I just picture a lot of conflicts. But their 2012 set was a top 5 show for me that year. Lots of fun and dancing. If you haven't seen them before I would check them out, they won't disappoint. The two singers really work well together and the sax player is great.

I love my best friend, but I'm not a fan of the people he hangs out with. He shared a racist joke with me last night one of his friends had told him. I had to send him a message on Facebook asking him not to tell me any more racist jokes and that they're not funny.
Vibe/Genre: Indie pop-ish, sorta soul-awakening, good, good music! For people who enjoy… Young the Giant, Hanni El Khatib, Walk the Moon, Grouplove Members: Michael Fitzpatrick (singer/songwriter), Noelle Scaggs (vocals), Joe Karns (bass), James King (saxophone & flute), Jeremy Ruzumna (keys), John Wicks (drummer).
Bio: Fitz & The Tantrums was formed by Michael Fitzpatrick in Los Angeles in 2008. The band performed their first live show in December of 2008 but their debut album was not released until August of 2010. That album, ‘Pickin’ Up The Pieces’ reached number one on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart. Their new album ‘More Than Just A Dream’ is currently at number 67 (and rising) on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
If you want to party, listen to… L.O.V. (Pickin’ Up The Pieces, 2010) If you want to chill, listen to… Don’t Gotta Work It Out (Pickin’ Up The Pieces, 2010) I highly suggest listening to… The Walker (More Than Just A Dream, 2013)
Bonnaroo History: Fitz & The Tantrums played a 16-song set at Bonnaroo 2012. The performance included a cover of The Raconteurs’ “Steady As She Goes” and The Eurythmics’ “Sweet Dreams” closing out the set with one of my personal favorites, “MoneyGrabber”.
This is one of the sets that I image will be opposed by a mess of conflicts so I’m really going to have to plan my Bonnaroo 2014 schedule carefully in order to make it to most, if not all, of the show. I definitely recommend this one of you like to dance!
