The War on Drugs were stupendous. Their sound was so much bigger and jammier at Bonnaroo. Same goes with Kurt Vile.
It was the first time I saw Annie Clark live, and I couldn't agree more.
Other highlights: Flying Lotus, Danny Brown, Gary Clark, Jr., The Black Lips (always).
Also caught ?uestlove's drumstick from The Roots Saturday night set. Awesome time to say the least.
Wow, I hadn't paid attention to Bonnaroo at all this year. That's quite a lineup. Kurt Vile is someone whom I dismissed for a long time as being Dark and Angsty, but he's grown on me so much. I think it was Peeping Tomboy that made me remember that Dark and Angsty done well is still really good. Great song.
