Love a Bonnaroo band that I haven’t featured yet? Shoot me a Facebook message telling me of their greatness. Enjoy.
Bonnaroo Tip of the Day: Put soapy washcloths in plastic bags and bring them to Bonnaroo. Wet the washcloth, and BOOM! Insta-bath.
First Aid Kit – Saturday, June 14, 3:00 P.M. – This Tent
First Aid Kit first broke onto the music scene in 2008, when the folk duo released a cover of Fleet Foxes’ “Tiger Mountain Peasant Song” on YouTube. Since then, Johanna and Klara Söderberg have released two albums, and our currently promoting their third, Stay Gold.
The angelic harmonies of First Aid Kit are instantly captivating; I haven’t heard voices with such technical and emotional prowess in along time. Their music isn’t anything groundbreaking, but the authenticity and beauty in which it’s presented is nothing less than touching. I’m not even someone who is generally attracted to acts like First Aid Kit, but I can recognize talent, and I enjoy seeing talented people perform. If you feel the same way, than I hope to see you there!
