It Takes A Bonna-Village

It's really a shame I forgot my power supply for my laptop.  I missed the earlier shows I wanted to see because I was lucky enough to catch a ride into the currently swamped and tie-dyed Manchester Walmart. Alas, two hours later I was back at Bonnaroo still sans a power supply - but STOCKED with bug spray and Ivy Block.  I scored an impromptu interview with members of Beats Antique, whom I knew little about but they'll be playing around 11:00pm and I hope to check 'em out.  Then I got lost.

Getting back to your camp at 'Roo the first few times can be confusing.  I always seem to end up walking miles out of my way.  So after all that, I finally got to check out some music.  I heard the beginning of  School Of Seven Bells and they were wonderful.  Early in their set they played a lovely rendition of my favorite tune of theirs, Windstorm.  They captured the song's lovely lilting high end perfectly. Then it was back to work at the media tent.

I interviewed another up-and-coming band called Kopecky Family Band.  They're out of Nashville and have made a big fan out of NPR's Bob Boilen.  Not a bad fan to have.   I'll come home packing a copy of they're latest CD titled "Of Epic Proportions'. We'll get some video of this interview up here soon; right now I need to save battery life and  shut down.  BTW, I think I have a line on solving my laptop problems.  A friend here at the media center should be able to help me out tomorrow.  This place is like a village, and villagers help each other out.
