was high-fives and hoots

the Beacon asked SuperJam
producer Paul Peck for
some insight into what
will take place at these two
collaborative events slated
for midnight on Friday at
That Tent and Saturday at
This Tent. “The goal for
this year’s SuperJams,”
he reveals, “is to push the
boundaries farther than ever.
In vintage Bonnaroo style,
the collective goal amongst
the artists is to try and do
of this with Eric Krasno and special acts. Too many to

As he drove his car
onto the festival grounds
on Wednesday, Kevin from
Albany, New York, who
had spent much of the past
day en route to Bonnaroo
with his crew, stuck his
head out as the window and
proclaimed, “Not only we
will be celebrating Friday
the 13th but it’ll be a full
moon. This is the 13th year
of the festival, so with the
13th on the 13th, things are
in alignment. It’s gonna be

bandanas and ipads with Wi-Fi connections.
There will be no fumes. No racing engines. No oil
puddles on the floor. Instead, the Garage by Ford offers
live performances in a very intimate and air-conditioned
setting.
“For the fifth year in a row, Ford is the exclusive
automotive sponsor at Bonnaroo,” said Ginger Kasanic,
Experiential Marketing Manager, Ford Motor Company.
“The concept was to create an experience for attendees
that’s not only entertaining and fun but also useful.
She added, “Bonnaroo is a chance to interact
with consumers who share Ford’s passion for great music
and the latest technology. There’s a magical connection
between the open road and listening to your favorite tunes.
And who wouldn’t want to be at Bonnaroo?
Besides, the concerts, a partnership with
What’s Trending offers a chance to meet with some of
YouTube’s biggest stars including actress/writer Shira
Lazar, internet vlog star Chester See, make-up artist
Kandee Johnson, comedienne Glozell Green and actor/
director, writer Andrew “King Bach” Bachelor.
The online stars chronicled their Road Trip to
Roo at http://whatstrending.com/escapetobonnaroo. They
will be adding daily posts of the good times happening
at Bonnaroo to their fans. You can follow along with the
hashtag #escape2roo.
The Garage by Ford will also have charging
battery boost, custom-printed t-shirts and tank tops, Ford
“Our vehicles and our brand are highlighted
through The Garage in a way that fits the overall festival
experience.” Last year, Ford highlighted its Fiesta model. This
time the automobile company brings 2014 Ford Escape
with EcoBoost and 2014 C-MAX Energi.
“Both vehicles are perfect for independent
thinkers who value performance and the latest tech,” said
Kasanic. “Additionally, C-MAX and Escape both have
an available Audio System from Sony® that features 355
watts of power, 10 high-quality premium speakers and a
dual-channel subwoofer. The system includes HD Radio™
Technology for static-free, razor-sharp sound reception.
“One especially innovative feature is iTunes®
Tagging. You simply hit the “Tag” button when you hear
a song you like on your local FM HD Radio station. Song
information will be saved for later preview and purchase or
direct buy if your device is wireless-enabled and connected
to the Internet.”
Each day one of the above bands will be plugged
into the 2014 CMAX Energi and use the battery of the Ford
Plugin Hybrid and the Sony Audio System to power that
performance.
The Garage Hours are 12-6:30 p.m. Thursday, and
11 a.m.-7 p.m. Friday-Sunday.

The Heat Is On:
NBA Finals Game 4
Preview
A selection of this year’s artists reflect on their past trips
to The Farm as fans, performers and the muddy spaces in
between
By Rob Slater
Compiled by Mike Greenhaus
After the two-time defending champion Miami Heat took
Game 2 in San Antonio to tie the series, they returned to the
friendly confines of the American Airlines Arena in Miami
with a renewed sense of hope despite their Game 1 loss.
However, the Spurs quickly snatched back home court
with a clinic in Game 3, resulting in a 111-92 rout.
San Antonio was simply sensational in Game
3, shooting a blistering 75.8 percent from the field in the
first half (a Finals record) en route to a 71-point half and a
21-point lead at the break. It wouldn’t get much better for
Miami from there, as the Spurs cruised to the 19-point win
and a 2-1 series lead.
How did the Spurs carve up Miami’s normally
formidable defense? They used a fatal combination of
precision passing and scorching outside shooting, as Kawhi
Leonard finally broke through in the series with a careerhigh 29 points after playing with foul trouble for the first
two games of the series. The breakout 22-year old wowed
the nation in the 2013 Finals during this matchup, with his
poise and aggressiveness in defending the best player in
the world--LeBron James. San Antonio would lose that
series, but Leonard had arrived.
There are several things Miami has to change in
order to avoid being pushed to the brink of elimination,
most notably their offensive production. All-star forward
Chris Bosh, who tallied the game winning 3 in Game 2,
only touched the ball 30 times in Game 3. For comparison,
fellow starter Rashard Lewis received 55 touches.
Turnovers also plagued the champs, as the Heat gave it up
20 times yielding 23 points to the Spurs.
In the end for the Heat, it comes down to their two
stars—LeBron James and Dwyane Wade—who played a
June game that resembled more of an early season or even
pre-season contest. Twelve turnovers between the two will
not get it done against a Spurs defense that feeds on live
ball turnovers.
Game 4 kicks off at 8 PM in the Cinema Tent.
at this festival’s spiritual godfather Glastonbury. They will
perform in That Tent at 9pm tonight and will remain onsite
for an encore appearance on the Sonic Stage at 3pm on

What were your expectations of Bonnaroo before your
first trip to the festival?
I had no idea what to expect at my first Bonnaroo, and
that was the best part! But the first time we played the
festival, I had been waiting over 6 years to yell, “What’s
up Bonnaroo?!?!”
Cherub’s Jason Huber
Bonnaroo Classes ‘06-‘13
Perhaps no artist on this year’s bill has attended Bonnaroo
as many times in as many different capacities as Cherub’s
Jason Huber. Since rolling into his first Bonnaroo in 2006
with a few friends, Huber has returned to the fest over the
years as a fan, staff member and volunteer, as well as an
unofficial performer playing pop-up shows for fans and
event workers. (Some of his colorful—and muddy—2009
Bonnaroo campground exploits are documented on the
popular YouTube clip “Mud Kid Roo 2009.”) He even
brought his dad one year. Finally, in 2012 Huber made his
first official appearance as one half of the indie-mindedelectro-duo Cherub in Bonnaroo’s new-music themed café
spaces.
Bonnaroo also serves as something of a homecoming for
Huber and his Cherub musical partner Jordan Kelley: the
group formed not too far away at Middle Tennessee State
and lists Nashville as the band’s hometown. Their smash
“Doses and Mimosas,” inspired by events a few hours
away in Alabama, was also a Southeast festival-circuit
anthem long before it went viral. This year Cherub will
swing back through Bonnaroo as part of a world tour that
includes a run through Europe and a stop across the pond
I have been going to Bonnaroo since ‘06, so this will be
my ninth year in a row on The Farm. I have attended as
a patron, a volunteer, a staff member and two years ago
I had the chance to perform with Cherub. Bonnaroo and
Christmas are my two favorite times of the year!
What do you remember most about your own
performance?
The crowd at our set two years ago was so rowdy that
we almost had to cut our set short because people were
climbing up the trusses at the stage. We had to briefly pause
to ask them to get down so we could play more—and they
did. Then we all raged on! No harm, no foul.
Describe your craziest Bonnaroo experience.
If you search “Mud Kid Roo 2009” on YouTube, that
was my campsite. You’ll find a video of Colby Buckler,
myself and apparently some guy from Mars Volta, sitting
in with This is Art at my bootleg campsite concert, while
the “mud kid” had some sort of religious experience with
the Bonnaroo mud. My dad was at Bonnaroo with me that
year—you should have seen his face when he saw the

How does Bonnaroo compare to other festivals you have played
I don’t want to use the word favorite, so I won’t use the word favorite because it would be
unfair to use the word favorite... I LOVE Bonnaroo. It is but, but f*ck it! Bonnaroo isn’t
for the weak... and if you are weak, it will make you stronger!
What was your quintessential Bonnaroo moment from years past?
My Morning Jacket’s set at the Which Stage in 2008—“Dondante” in the rain was epic.
R. Kelly releasing white dove balloons during “I Believe I Can Fly” at the Which Stage in
2013 was epic. Sitting on a blanket facing away from main stage during Radiohead’s set in
2006—I’m sure the show was epic. Wish I had seen it, but I don’t regret all of the friends
I made at my first ‘Roo! And if I am allowed to even speak of it, the Staff-terParty!!!

What band would you most like to collaborate with at Bonnaroo this year?
I want Kanye West to sit in during our set. We’ll give him 30 minutes to rant about
whatever is on his mind. THAT would be something!
J. Roddy Walston
Bonnaroo Class: ‘11
Perhaps there was something in the water. In 2002, while Superfly and AC Entertainment
put together the inaugural Bonnaroo right here in Manchester, Tenn., J. Roddy Walston
formed The Business just across the state in Cleveland, Tenn. Settling on a mix of rootsy
Southern rock, punk energy and indie weirdness that recalls Bonnaroo’s own musical
DNA, the band released their first EP later that year, before relocating to Baltimore, Md.
in 2004. Walston spent years barnstorming the country with Bonnaroo favorites like The
Black Keys, Lucero, Deer Tick and The Lumineers and made their first stop on The Farm
in 2011 for a performance at Bonnaroo’s intimate Cafe Where stage in 2011. Thanks to
some downtime between What Stage stars The Black Keys and Eminem—and a little
rain—J. Roddy Walston & The Business turned on a tent-full of new fans during their
short set and even caught My Morning Jacket from the exclusive backstage balcony.
This year the band—which also boasts guitarist/vocalist Billy Gordon, bassist/vocalist
Logan Davis, and drummer Steve Colmus—return to the festival with Essential Tremors,
their most eclectic album yet, which spikes their original sounds with such Bonnaroo
sounds as soul, hard rock and even pre-disco-era Bee Gees beats. The group will play This
Tent at 11:30pm tonight and offer an intimate set on the Sonic Stage at 6pm tomorrow.
As an extra incentive, when you check in at the festival stages you'll get
an exclusive photo from that performance if you connect your wristband
to your OneDrive account. Plus, every picture you snap with your friends
at the photo booth kiosks around the farm will be saved to your
OneDrive account, too! Everyone who links their OneDrive to their
wristband also gets 100 GB of OneDrive storage for a year to store
photos from all their adventures, Bonnaroo and beyond.

What were your expectations of Bonnaroo before your first trip to the festival?
BONNAROO
I thought it was gonna be a mad house of dirt, sweat, drug zombies, rad bands and hanging
with other bands we were buds with. I was pretty dead on.

What do you remember most about your own performance?
We were right in between The Black Keys and Eminem and it started raining. People
flooded the tent right after our first song and it turned into a wet mess of a party! It was
pretty special.

My Bonnaroo Day:
Mike Greenhaus and Kyle Hannon
Torn and frayed relic from the first Bonnaroo that still fits
Once again the Bonnaroo Beacon presents its My Bonnaroo Day feature. We’ll have musicians file reports
from Friday through Sunday but today we offer the perspectives of Mike Greenhaus and Kyle Hannon.
PAGE
Kyle is on the sponsor team and this is his 12th consecutive Bonnaroo. Mike’s editorial responsibilities
include both Relix magazine and the Beacon. This is also his 12th ‘Roo (he was here the first year but he
missed one along the way).
Do you have any kosher bacon for the Bonnaroo bar mitzvah?
Bonnaroo Special Additions
By Rob Slater
Landing on the lineup at Bonnaroo is a dream realized for so many young bands. For
two in particular this year, that dream came with the affirmation from one of their
idols. Royal Teeth and Black Pistol Fire were handpicked by The Flaming Lips’ Wayne
Coyne, Billboard Magazine and the Bonnaroo booking committee to play the festival as
facilitated by SonicBids.
The soul-crushing sounds of silence
Chariots of Fire
The gist is this: applications were whittled down by each party, with Coyne and
Billboard evaluating hundreds of entries from bands across the country with only two
slots available. ““We’re really excited to give up and coming bands a chance to play on
such a high profile stage like Bonnaroo,” says Peter Rappaport of SonicBids.
Not only do the winners receive a slot at the festival but they also get a $1,000
payment, a full-page spread in Billboard, a full bio on the Bonnaroo website, a pair of
VIP tickets and more. All proceeds will be donated directly to the Bonnaroo Works Fund.
The first selection is New Orleans outfit Royal Teeth, who released their debut
EP Act Naturally in 2011. After signing with Dangerbird Records, Royal Teeth released
their long awaited debut album Glow in August of 2013. The six-piece, which features
Gary Larsen, Nora Patterson, Joshua Wells, Josh Hefner, Steve Billeaud and Andrew
Poe, will perform at the New Music on Tap Lounge at Noon on Friday.
Next up is Canadian rock and roll duo Black Pistol Fire. Featuring Kevin
McKeown and Eric Owen, the longtime friends began playing music together when they
discovered a shared passion for rock and roll music in high school. The two originally
founded a rock trio called The Shenanigans, recorded an LP and ultimately decided they
wanted a change. With that, Black Pistol Fire was born in Austin, TX in 2009. Black
Pistol Fire will take the Café Where Stage on Sunday at 1:30 PM.
Sonic Bids is an organization that helps artists and bands get gigs and people
book bands. For more information on Sonic Bids, visit their website at www.sonicbids.

OneDrive for Festival Memories
By Rob Slater
OneDrive is offering a one-of-a-kind festival experience this year at Bonnaroo
as fans will have the opportunity to link their wristband to their OneDrive account to
access exclusive photos and keep track of the shows they attend throughout the weekend.
The process is simple—link your Bonnaroo wristband with the festival website
and automatically receive 100 GBs in storage via OneDrive.
Fans can connect their RFID wristband to Microsoft OneDrive by tapping their
wristband to “check in” at various stages throughout the festival grounds. For each show
an attendee checks in for, they’ll have an exclusive photo from that performance to their
OneDrive account. Fans will also have access to photo kiosks around the festival grounds
where attendees can take pictures of themselves and have them sent to OneDrive as well.
In addition to pictures from this year’s festival, fans will also have access to
pictures from Bonnaroo past as over 100 images dating back to 2002 through the present
year will be added with photos by a variety of prominent photographers including Ryan
Maestro, C. Taylor Crothers and Danny Clinch.
Another important aspect of the OneDrive involvement with Bonnaroo is in
the OneDrive mobile app. Fans can download the app through iOS and Android stores,
with many other benefits coming to the mobile app. Pictures taken at various stages
throughout the weekend will be immediately stored to the OneDrive account, if both are
linked together. The idea behind this is to provide all photos a place to live when they
aren’t being posted to Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or any other social media site. The
overall goal is to improve the new age festival experience where social media and photos
have become a priority with festival attendees.
OneDrive, previously SkyDrive, is a file hosting service that allows users to
upload and sync files to a cloud storage and then access the from a web browser of their
local device. It operates as a part of the Windows Live range of online services and allows
users to keep the files private, share them with contacts, or make the files public.

Although the Sonic Stage typically remains dark on
Thursday, tonight it will open early for an evening of
Communion Presents performances. Closing out the
program will be The Weeks. Born and raised in Jackson,
Mississippi, the quartet first came together before its
members were old enough to drive. Mumford & Sons’
Ben Lovett selected The Weeks to headline Communion
Tour and tonight you can find why, starting at 9:30 p.m.
But first, guitarist Sam Williams chimes in…
The world would be a better place if everyone listened
to...
Thin Lizzy. Then I could rave about Phil Lynott and
everybody would understand exactly what I mean.
Name a song you sing in the shower or your car but
never on stage?
“Why You Wanna Treat Me So Bad?,” Prince. I couldn’t
subject an audience to my falsetto for that long, unless a
karaoke bar is involved. Then, no reservations. I would
crush it. What song that bands often cover would you be happy
never to hear again?
“The Weight.” Not that it can’t be pulled off, but I’ve
heard so many bands take a dump on that song that I think
it should be in a vault somewhere, uncoverable. What song could you hear again and again?
I’m gonna say two. “Turn On Your Radio,” Harry Nilsson
and “Love Vigilantes,” New Order
The one thing nobody knows about me is…
I have gills. Name a song of yours that you really dig but others
don’t seem to appreciate?
“Ain’t My Stop.” Not that it doesn’t get any love, but
I think it’s the greatest music, lyrics, arrangement,
production on anything we’ve ever done. “Hey come out to my gig and see me play”?
Since we started playing when I was 14, it’s the only one I
know. So I guess I have to say yes. If I weren’t a musician I’d be a…
Carpenter.
% of professional musicians you know about whom
you’d say hey that guy/gal’s pretty cool?
75%
Greatest TV show ever?
Andy Griffith Show. Greatest book?
The Hotel New Hampshire, by John Irving. Who is the nicest person in the music community?
Vince Gard. It’s just science, he’s the nicest dude ever. What’s your problem with the other 25%?
Sanctimoniousness.
If you could invite any three people living or dead to
join you in a sumptuous pre-show meal who would
they be?
Jon Stewart, Levon Helm & Dikembe Mutombo
Who is the worst dressed?
Lady Gaga. Two words, meat dress. True or false drummers are under appreciated?
True. It may not come to fruition via crazy fills and
polyrhythms, but there’s never been a band worth seeing
live that doesn’t have a good drummer. True or false guitarists are over appreciated?
Even as a guitarist, I’d say yes. We rule, no doubt, but the
rhythm section is the backbone. Greatest music movie ever made?
The Last Waltz. Totally unanimous within the Weeks. At Bonnaroo I’m looking forward to seeing…
Ty Segall. Got hooked on Lemons when it came out and
somehow haven’t managed to catch a set yet. I love artists
that refuse the system and release 3 albums a year. And
killer albums, to boot. Bon or oo?
True or false, the best pick-up line in the world is,
Oooooooo
