Updates from Joe and Rob at Bonnaroo

06/18/13: We are back home! After a long day of travel Monday, we returned safe and sound with smiles on our faces and the past weekend's adventures still in our minds.

Sunday morning we awoke to flood watches after a night of heavy rain. There was standing water all over the festival grounds and more rain on the way. We packed our belongings and walked about half a mile to the point where shuttles picked up folks to return them to their parking lot at a nearby hotel.

Monday Night June 17th at 8pm: THE BEACH BOYS - Pet Sounds

We celebrate the first week of summer -- and Brian Wilson's 6/20 birthday - with this critics' 5-star favorite Monday night.  Layering their pristine vocal harmonies with such quirky tools as harpsichords, Theremin, bicycle bells, and barking dogs, 1966's Pet Sounds remains one of the best-produced and most influential rock albums ever released.  Yes, it's up there with such milestone classics as The Beatles' Revolver and Sgt. Pepper, which Brian in particular tried obsessively to compete with.  "Without Pet Sounds, Sgt.

Thursday Night the 20th between 8pm & Midnight: GHOST BROTHERS OF DARKLAND COUNTY Soundtrack

Not long after buying a rustic vacation cabin, John Mellencamp was told by the previous owner that it was haunted by the ghosts of two brothers and the girl they both loved, all of whom died horrifically there half a century earlier.  One thing led to another, and Mellencamp was able to team up with novelist Stephen King and producer T-Bone Burnett to create the musical Ghost Brothers of Darkland County.  Of course they were able to amass an all-star cast for the soundtrack, so you'll hear Sheryl Crow, Taj Mahal, Dave Alvin, Elvis Costello (playing Satan), Ryan Bingham, and others

20TH BLUE RIDGE BBQ AND MUSIC FESTIVAL IS ALMOST HERE!

In honor of the Blue Ridge BBQ & Music Festival AND Father's Day, there will be a great Car Show as just one of the many things you can do.

If you live in North Carolina, South Carolina, Kansas City, or Texas, you don't HAVE to like barbecue.  But, if you don't people are likely to ask - just curious, ya know - 'What the heck's wrong with you?!' And if you live in Western North or South Carolina and you've never been to the Blue Ridge BBQ and Music Festival - like maybe you live in a cave or you've just moved here - you have GOT TO GO...This Year...This Friday and Saturday!
