Belatedly, From Bonnaroo 2011

We came, we camped and we conquered. Frankly, SPIN covered the shit out of this festival. We also emptied its moonshine reserves, but you won’t read about that here. Nay, instead you’ll viddy glorious retellings of such historic events as:

The 5 Best Sets of Bonnaroo 2011 Day 1 (I wrote on Wavves, Twin Shadow), Day 2 (Atmosphere), Day 3 (Low Anthem, Gogol Bordello) and Day 4 (Explosions in the Sky, Junip); AS WELL AS Lil Wayne Returns Sober, AND Buffalo Springfield Reunites, AND Iron & Wine Goes Free Jazz (with set lists!) .

Yes, it happened over a month ago and nobody reads this stuff more than 12 hours after the fact, but … well, um, consider it? Maybe?
