Bonnaroo Day Four: A View From The Hotel Room

bonnaroocrowd.jpg

Coheed and Cambria were on stage at Bonnaroo on Sunday evening running through a mesmerizing setlist that included covers of "Red Rain" by Peter Gabriel," and "Under The Milky Way" by The Church. Despite what you might think, the Gabriel cover wasn't a direct response to any rain on the day - there had been nary a drop to be felt for those in attendance - instead Coheed were just rockin' out, doing what they do. It was a nice touch during the closing moments of Sunday's festivities, which also featured sets from country legend Merle Haggard, Akron-based Jessica Lea Mayfield, and a big healthy helping of metal courtesy of Dillinger Escape Plan, Shadows Fall, and High on Fire. And the hippie nation put their hands together to rejoice one more time with a weekend closer courtesy of Phish, who already had gotten their Bonnaroo on with a lengthy setlist on Friday night.

And some guy named Bruce Springsteen that we talked about yesterday, came out to help Phish wrap up their first set with three tunes - "Mustang Sally," "Bobby Jean," and "Glory Days."

Me?

I was feeling sick and in a hotel room. We had plans to check out of the hotel on Sunday morning, but my body dictated otherwise and gave me the invitation that I couldn't refuse, to pay for an extra night in the hotel so that I could lounge around and feel sick throughout the day.

We arrived at the hotel in Murfreesboro, which sounds like I asked someone where they were, and they got punched in the face before they could answer. Our assigned room was very Bonnaroo appropriate!

'Tis okay though because it's already been a weekend's worth of memories that will stay with me for life (not to mention, things that Brian will have fun giving me crap about for eternity!)

We're on our way home this morning, and I'm planning to soldier through with my plans for Monday night in Columbus, which is on the way home, to see Eric Clapton and Steve Winwood. I don't have to drive home from C-bus - Bear will take care of that, and I think that I can prop myself up in a seat for a couple of hours to see two of my favorite legends do their thing again. I saw Clapton and Winwood at Crossroads 2007, and I've been looking forward to a return engagement ever since.

Gotta give big thanks to my good friends Brian and Adam, my favorite two people to road trip/attend festivals with. Year three of festival road tripping was not without its challenges (mostly on my side, yay!) but we certainly had some good times!

I'll leave you all with a couple of Coheed videos from Youtube, featuring their cover song performances referenced above, as recorded live last month.

A reminder for Cleveland fans - you can catch Coheed performing live with Heaven & Hell (read: Black Sabbath) this summer on August 22nd at Nautica Stage, and Church fans are in luck as well - The Church will be at the Beachland Ballroom on Friday, June 26th.

    Coheed rocks!! They were my fave in high school. I most likely would have gone nuts during their performance if I was there…but for now I’m going to have to go nuts in the comfort of my own home when I watch Fusefest this weekend. They are airing the best of Bonnaroo and apparently Coheed is the best soo..and some others. http://fuse.tv/tours/bonnaroo-09/

    Man, I'm sorry that you had to feel sick in your hotel room. Once, I had the same experience just as you… Me and my wife planned a super vacation for 10 days in the Caribbean, but I had to stay 3 days in my bed… ate something nasty… that is something that I don't want to remember very often.

    If you are willing to buy a car, you would have to receive the personal loans. Moreover, my brother all the time utilizes a car loan, which supposes to be really useful.

    I am sick and feeling in a hotel room. On Sunday morning, had plans to check out of the hotel, but I could not refuse their invitation to me to dictate and gave my body to another, a night at the hotel for an extra payment.
