Hey everyone -- it's finally here!!! The excitement of Bonnaroo 2008 has arrived and everyone is buzzing madly, ready to spend four days together camping at one of the largest and most beloved music and arts festivals in the U.S. Bonnaroo brings 100,000 people annually to Tennessee, bringing in millions of dollars in revenue to the state and, not unsurprisingly, bringing together people from a wide swath of social groups. The potential change in social dynamics of the festival has been criticized by long-time fans of this year, in part due to the inclusion of Metallica as headliners.
This just in from Bonnaroo 2008 -- kanYe West has moved his Bonnaroo 2008 set time to the late night Saturday slot! This is very exciting news for everyone attending.

I can't remember these guys' names (they say them in the interview), but I sure hope they'll reconsider and actually come back to Bonnaroo 2008 next week. Maybe this year, they should consider sticking with beer, nahh mean?
After exchanging emails with Voxpop's Alexander Miller, we're going to eek out a new Voxpop MP3, one at a time in the hopes your excitement about their new songs will be equal or greater than ours.
Some helpful biographical information about the band: Voxpop formed in the wake of Alexander Miller's exit from UK band The Upper Room, who released an album and a couple of singles on Columbia. They're doing regular gigs around London, so make sure and keep an eye out for where they're playing. Since we can't get to London, we'd be thrilled if you send ...
This little tidbit came in from Popbitch this morning and reminded us to remind you about the always hilarious (and very good-sported) Chris Rock's full-sized comedy experience this year at Bonnaroo. Ever the sport, he stopped by the Rough Trade record shop in London and wowed the shop keeps by leaving a permanent mark worth mentioning.
