Bonnaroo 2009 and a few NoLa Artists to Watch for...

c/o Groovescapes

BonnarooUnless you live under a rock, you should be pretty well aware that this weekend (June 11th-14th) marks the gargantuan, musical spectacle Bonnaroo. The brainchild of ex-New Orleans production company, Superfly, over the past 8 years, the annual festival held each June in Manchester, Tennessee has blossomed from a grassroots, jamband gathering to an over-the-top, all-encompassing vacation destination for music lovers and their families. Though ups, downs and the doubling of ticket prices, Bonnaroo has persevered, proving itself to be one of the most successful showcases on the musical landscape. As for me, I’ve been there and done that – and might consider doing it again. If you, your family or your friends are heading out to the fields of Manchester, remember to take a gander at New Orleans acts Galactic (ft Corey Henry & Troy “Tombone” Shorty Andrews), Allen Toussaint, The Knux, MyNameIsJohnMichael and DJ Quickie Mart.
