Okay, Esteemed Reader, this is it. All you're going to get. I packed up and rolled out of Bonnaroo first thing Sunday morning and, truth be told, didn't see any music after 5pm on Saturday. So yes, I missed The Beach Boys. And the Chili Peppers. And confirmation of the media tent rumor that D'Angelo would return to the stage at Saturday night's Superjam. Oh well. Would that I were made of tougher stuff. And would that I didn't require indoor toilets to be happy.
"The Screaming Eagle of Soul", Charles Bradley opened the What Stage on Friday. A former James Brown impersonator, Bradley released his first album last year at age 62.
Midway through the set, Bradley traded his white studded suit and gold lame shirt for a pair of banana-yellow pants and a black shirt unbuttoned to the waist. The man knows what the ladies want.
The often divisive rap group Das Racist delivered a loud and well-received set at This Tent.
Kool A.D. strikes a pose that pretty much sums up the group's onstage personae.
Heems pauses to model his footwear.
More than just "Combination Pizza Hut and Taco Bell".
Pop powerhouse Santigold brought some pizazz to the What Stage.
Her bright costumes, deadpan backup drones, and simple but entertaining choreography made her performance a welcome confection for this hot and bedraggled photographer.
The end. See you next year, Bonnaroo.
