Bonnawahoo! (revisited)

You may have caught this at shreveporttimes.com as an update, but it didn't get put on here. Here's something from Friday morning. I'll give you some photos and other thoughts on my Bonnaroo experience soon.

So far, Bonnaroo is quite an experience. We left at midnight and drove all night just to wait four hours in about two miles of creeping traffic to get through the gate and claim a camping spot.

Some folks are saying there will be 90,000 people here by Sunday. I don’t have an accurate count yet, but there are a ton of dusty music fans here staying in a city of tents.

In the way of entertainment, my sister and I enjoyed the indie-pop of California-based The Little Ones. One of our fellow campers called them “too poppy,” but I think a little melody and spunk can go a long way.

Another interesting review featured burlesque dancers and a guy who could lift irons (the kind you use on your clothes) with cords attached to his pierced nipples. Stay tuned for more.

Well now, this thing looks interesting. Get inspired and come home so we can open a review show with all kinds of people -- men in drag, little people, heavy folks... men in tights... The Red River District could be fun again.

Haha. Thanks, Tour. I'm back. I can't do the nipples part, for sure. But maybe the tights?
