Because (as you may or may not know) I am embarassed and shy regarding most situations involving bodily functions/fluids/solids, etc.. I figure the only way I can really even start this story about what happened after we got back from Lil Wayne is to show this picture:
- Why do you think the person responsible could have not handled this situation somewhere else?
I took this photo around 9:00am, the only explination I can guess is that people got too hot sleeping in their sauna-like-tents and relocated under the trees.
Part 1 & Part 2). Day was Saturday, June 11th. We had to get a little earlier start (be inside Bonnaroo by 2pm instead of our usual 6pm) to get tickets to see Donald Glover (he's the black guy from Community. So hilarious.) We got our tickets around 2:30pm for the 4:30 show. Instead of leaving and coming back, we just sat down under a tree in the shade.
You know my obsession with stars, so I was extra excited to find these on the ground where we were sitting waiting on the show.
Once inside it was so nice and air conditioned. Here is the stage.
The usher had probably the BEST job at Bonnaroo... get to see famous people from in the shade, not a bad gig. Here is a picture she took of Chad, Rian and I. They look good... I look like I hadn't taken a shower in 3 days and was covered in dirt w/ no make-up and psycho eyes. HOTTT!
For being not such a huge tent I think it held around 1,300 people.
Then back outside it was just in time to go see Mumford & Sons at 6:30pm.
Mumford performed on the same stage as Lil Wayne, and just like the crowd at Weezy not knowing his songs (except for me and Rian)... no one seemed to know Mumford songs either! (except for Rian and I... Again!!!) But they did an awesome job (all the artists did). They sounded JUST like the CD which is really all I can ask for :)
After that the huge mob headed over to the main stage to see the Black Keys at 8pm and then Eminem was coming on at 11. There was this tiny little creek of mud and lord even knows what else, that was the cause of the huge delay. Notice the wheelchair in the upper right.
