Bonarroo 2013

Today is a day that myself, and thousands of other music fans across the world have been waiting for. Which of coarse is Bonnaroo Announcement Day. It is almost a holiday to some like me. I personally worked 3 extra shifts at my job just to have this day off. And, was it worth it? Yes it was. Here is the complete Lineup that we all have been waiting on and below are a few reasons I think that you should venture to the farm this summer.

I tried on both my ipod and my computer to open the live video feed on Bonnaroo’s Youtube Channel with no luck. So many people were trying to watch at the same time. During one point the view counter was at 18,000 people watching live. I kept having the video freeze and stop working. After refreshing for the first 10 minutes the video wouldn’t work for me at all. That had a lot of people had posting some negative comments. It is supposed to be fun, and to me it was.

I worked out the problems and got the video going again. As I tuned in they were reading some of the first announcements live : Passion Pit, Of Monsters, Of Men were read off by Weird AL. Then a personal Bonnaroo favorite of mine Trombone Shorty came on the screen live to announce that he would be at Bonnaroo 2013.

After some various random Bonnaroo footage, a lady named Amy and her adorable son announced Billy Idol and another band I didn’t reconize the name for. Weird Al came back on screen to announce Mumford and Sons, which was a solid add. Next to be announced was Grizzly Bear, Foals, Walk The Moon, Wild Nothing, Deap Vally, Killer Mike and Japandroids were on a list that came out of a colorful donkey pinatas ass. Portugal. The Man, made a guest appearance and played ” So American ” which sounded great. I have yet to get to see them live this was a cool surprise for me.

Portugal. The Man was a awesome addition to this party, and I made it a party. This is one of the best days of the year for me. I learn so much about music, myself and just life in general from being away from normal life for a few days in the summer. Bonnaroo gives me that and that means the world to me. If you have never been, you really should consider going it is nothing short of AMAZING. My favorite thing about Bonnaroo is all the artist and people I am grateful to have seen and met that other than here, I never would of had to the chance to. It’s priceless.

So I was having a lot of fun watching this whole thing, to me anticipation makes things better sometimes. Goofy skits ensued and more artist were announced Beach House, Gaslight Anthem, Local Natives, Dirty Projectors, Baroness, The Vaccines, Dwight Yokam, and Death Grips rounded out that set. R.Kelly was the next big announcement. I’m not sure on this one, the topic is being widely debated. I know R. Kelly takes a lot of heat in the media. His last tour got great reviews and he is a talented writer and performer. Should be interesting to say the least. It is either gonna be really good, or really bad which do you think?

Paul Mccartney, was a major addition to the lineup. Some of the others were Purity Ring, Cat Power, The Wu Tang Clan, Björk and ZZ Top which were all big names to be added. I have never got to see Wu Tang and they will be a set I won’t miss. Next to be announced on the show were Matt and Kim, Tame Impala, Action Bronson, Kendrick Lamar, Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers, and Pretty Lights were some of the bigger artist that were announced to close out the show. But there was one more major artist for 2013…. Weird AL Yankovich, which was felt across the world. One word Major.

They closed out the show with Weird Al playing a song with Portugal. The Man. The show was fun I will see everyone at the farm this summer. Until then here are some of my personal favorite 2013 Bonnaroo Artist picks, all videos shot by me over the years.

5. Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers they are going to play a great set because thats what Tom Petty does. They are known for their live shows, go see this one.

4. Baroness, these guys blew me away last time I saw them live. They are what a good rock show is about. They are going to tear shit up at Bonnaroo. If you go don’t miss them.

3. NAS is incredible live, Nas does not disappoint he stays sharp.It will be just him, a mic, you and The DJ. What true Rap is all about, come out and see Nas. One of the best rappers of all time.

2. St. Vincent and David Bryne, I owe finding out about St. Vincent to Bonnaroo. I saw her back in 09 and she was incredible. I have been hooked since. Last year was one of my favorite performances of the weekend, I can’t wait for this year.

1. Killer Mike is tremendously underrated, I went to his show a while back. Dude Kills it, hence the name. I really like his lyrics, songs, and how can you not like a song about Wrestling Star Ric Flair? Go Check out Killer Mike this summer.

You can find me online, thanks for reading this. Follow me I will be at Bonnaroo, and various other shows this summer. Till Next Time. BeezNutzSTL

This New Years Eve, Nas will countdown the remaining hours  of the year inside Radio City Music Hall in New York City as he plays a show to end 2012. Last night found one of Queen’s finest in Burbank and basic cable television. Riding high off his latest release “Life Is Good”, Nas came by Conan and played up a track off the album titled “World’s An Addiction “. Check out the video below courtesy of Team Coco

Virgin Mobile’s 2012 “FreeFest”: Jack White and Skrillex to Headline

Virgin Mobile’s 2012 “FreeFest”: Jack White and Skrillex to Headline

You know the more cool shows and stuff that get’s announced out of Maryland and Delaware, the more I think it wouldn’t be so bad to head down there from time to time-even if it’s a 5+ hour drive from New York City.

Returning to the to Merriweather Post Pavilion in Maryland on October 6th, will be the “Virgin Mobile FreeFest” . 2012 Festival favorites  Jack White and Skrillex top the list of acts, which also features the likes of Nas (who’s new album Life is Good, is indeed awesome), M83, Ben Folds Five and ZZ Top.

This festival contains two main stages and we’ve got the full list of acts below.  Now let’s talk about the title of “Freefest” :

-Free tickets to the festival will be available to the public on August 24th  at 12PM (Noon) over at Ticketfly.

-Freefest has a limited amount of “Freemium Packages ,” that can get you admission into the festival but require a ‘charitable donation’ to Virgin Mobile USA’s Youth Homelessness Initiatives,. With that you get a FreeFest T-shirt, a souvenir cup (a cup that includes free fountain drinks for the duration of the festival) as well as early admission to the grounds. You can grab some Freemium tickets at Ticketfly or the box offices at the 9:30 Club as well as the  Merriweather Post Pavilion.

 

So the only question left, is who’s driving this writer??

Nas Stops By The Colbert Report

Nas Stops By The Colbert Report

With all due respect to Nas (who rocked David Letterman’s late night TV bonanza earlier this week) instead of writing a few lines about his stop by The Colbert Report, I am just going to say fuck you Viacom. Even if I legally wanted to view this program tonight (as I often do) your bullshit battle in the name of greed against DirecTV prevents me from doing so. So fuck you for the first time in the history of this site I don’t feel an ounce of guilt for sharing content that does not belong to us.

Off my soap box now, enjoy Nas.

As always, nothing but love and respect to The Audio Perv for the videos.

Nas Performs “Nasty” w/ The Roots On Jimmy Fallon

Remember when Jay-Z and Nas staged that Rap war that took the whole Hip Hop world by storm? Yea, this is far from those days.

Every time you look at a festival bill, you always see Nas listed performing with Damian Marley. Whether he has a deep love for being on tour, or it has something to do with that money he owes in back taxes-you’ll probably have your chance to see him in your town in the near future.

And for the people that don’t like the showcase of experiencing a live event never fear. We go a video below of Nas performing “Nasty” with the Roots on Jimmy Fallon last night
