19 Days to Bonnaroo: Ty Segall

As the days go by, I get more and more excited. This is one you do not want to miss. Enjoy.

Bonnaroo Tip of the Day: Please, no love making during Lionel Richie. Contain yourselves people.

Ty Segall – Friday, June 13, 1:00 A.M. – This Tent

Ty Segall has become a garage rock God. He’s like Jack White, but younger and covered in California sand. Like White, he’s never slowed down. Within the last few years, Segall has released upwards of ten albums with various bands and collaborators. Whether he’s playing brutal, metal-esque punk, jangly surf rock, or acoustic folk rock, Segall always brings A+ songwriting with A+ melodies.

At Bonnaroo, expect Segall’s crunchy guitars to conjure glorious mosh pits and bludgeon eyes as far as they used to see. If you need a preview, check out Segall play “You’re the Doctor” on Letterman.

 Bonnaroo Tip of the Day: Flamethrowers are great for cooking food, or killing friends.

Janelle Monáe – Friday, June15, 3:30 P.M. – What Stage

I hate Janelle Monáe. Actually, I love Janelle Monáe. But, I hate that she’s playing at the same time as The Orwells. It’s the shittiest decision I have to make, other than the whole fucking Chvrches Vs Vampire Weekend VS Neutral Milk Hotel debacle. But it’s a decision Monáe will win. Her funk, soul , R&B swagger is infectious. And baby, I’m addicted. The way she sings, moves, and dresses is all cool, all the time. “Black and white tux, ain’t no need for no other colors.” Live, I’m expecting a full brass band, and toes taping from here to Japan. Keep it cool…
