Bonnaroo, the East Coast's premiere multi-day, multi-stage gathering of the vibes (held in Manchester, Tennessee from June 11th to 14th) usually doesn't release its lineup until early February -- but RollingStone.com hears from reliable sources close to Phish that the band will top the bill for two nights, restoring the fest to its jam-friendly roots.......Also being buzzed about with some legitimacy: Bruce Springsteen as Sunday night's closer...Maybe Coachella will get "the Specials".
As for Coachella, the fest reputed for reuniting many a dormant band (the Pixies in 2004, Rage Against the Machine in 2007), Blur is believed to be a frontrunner, though a show scheduled for London's Hyde Park in July raises some doubt -- would the Brits really forestall a comeback gig on their home turf for a U.S. one-off jaunt?....

Superfly Productions and A.C. Entertainment are proud to announce the dates for the eighth annual Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival. Confirmed to take place June 11 - 14, 2009, the four-day festival will once again be held on the same beautiful, 700-acre farm in Manchester, Tennessee, 60 miles southeast of Nashville. Ticket pre-sales for the festival will begin on December 4, 2008 and go through December 31st. These tickets will be specially priced ticket levels available exclusively for early purchase. VIP tickets will also be available during this time. In an unprecedented move, during our holiday pre-sale, general admission tickets will be available as well for five (5) payments of $50.00 plus applicable fees through our payment plan. To promote the pre-sale, Bonnaroo and comedian Lewis Black worked together to create a hilariously manic Crazy-Eddie inspired video.

ROTHBURY -- A man and a woman who attended the Rothbury Music Festival in Oceana County over the weekend died from separate medical issues Sunday.It is not clear whether the deaths happened before, during, or after the mini Phish reunion (no disrespect to the dead) (no pun intended).
A 33-year-old woman from New York and a 28-year-old man from Ohio suffered medical emergencies hours apart at the Rothbury festival Sunday and later died at Lakeshore Hospital in Shelby, Michigan State Police Lt. Dave Roesler said Tuesday.
The two deaths were separate incidents. Roesler said there is no reason to suspect foul play or anything unusual about the deaths. However, authorities are waiting for toxicology reports from the autopsies, which should be available in about four weeks.
Festival organizers said the woman was accompanied by a service animal and had a previous medical condition. [freep]

The Grammy winner walked onto the festival stage nearly two hours past his scheduled 2:45 a.m. performance time Sunday morning and was greated by bleary-eyed fans' chorus of boos and chants of "Kanye sucks." [E Online]"Kanye Hates Hippies" - Bonnaroo 2008 (cred)
Ken Weinstein, a spokesman for the annual festival held on a 700-acre site south of Nashville, said the delay was simply a matter of unloading the Pearl Jam stage (the band went an hour past its scheduled end time, playing until about 1:15 a.m.) and loading the West stage.

People were mad about the set time. Now Kanye West has reacted to the controversy with an angry blog posting. More pictures, and his ENTIRE ANGRY MESSAGE, BELOW....

Kirk Hammett of Metallica & My Morning Jacket @ Bonnaroo 2008
Bonnaroo resides on farmland about 65 miles southeast of Nashville, with campgrounds adjoining the festival site. It draws people who arrive for a long weekend, often with hippie wardrobes and mud boots for Bonnaroo's nearly inevitable rain.They'll probably play at least that long at MSG on New Years Eve too. Check out the setlist and more pictures below....
Fans stood through an intermittent deluge as My Morning Jacket, a band from Louisville that pushes pealing, surging Southern rock toward soul and psychedelia, played a three-hour set in Saturday's wee hours. "It feels awesome to be bathed in beautiful golden rain," said the band's leader, Jim James. [NY Times]
Sigur Ros @ Bonnaroo 2008 (cred)
Sigur Ros had a little scare at a show before Bonnaroo...
...Orri is by now in the back of an ambulance at side of stage, with a drip going in one arm, and a blood pressure test on the other. It is very, very worrying. Everyone is in a state of shock. It is clear Orri will take no further part in tonight, so we get a setlist and attempt to work out what songs can be played without a drummer. It's not many. We settle on five, most of which were not on the original setlist, since they are by definition mellow...Luckily everything seems to be all alright now....

As you know, Cut Copy are playing SXSW, Coachella, Mercury Lounge and Studio B (on March 15th). And as you know, Black Kids are playing Coachella and Bonnaroo. What you might not know yet is that the most talked about band at CMJ this year are also returning to NYC in May to play Studio B (on May 13th), and that they're going on a tour with Cut Copy after Coachella (which includes a lot of dates, but none in NYC....or maybe they just can't announce it yet....).
I saw Black Kids twice during CMJ, and I'll admit that the first time (@ Annex) was a let down, but the band was nervous and there were technical difficulties. They were much better at R Bar, though that could come off as biased since it was my show (a little more on that here). Seriously though, I thought they were pretty good at that one, and I'm definitely curious to hear and see more next time. All dates below....
Lupe & Kanye, Lollapalooza 2006
Emerging from a lengthy stint in a Parisian studio, electro-pop mavens Ladytron are finally set to return with Velocifero, the follow-up to 2005's opus Witching Hour, slated to land stateside June 3 courtesy of their new label, Nettwerk Music Group. The new record was produced by Ladytron with additional production by Alessandro Cortini (Modwheelmood, NIN), and Vicarious Bliss of Ed Banger Records (Justice, etc), and mixing courtesy of Michael Patterson (Beck, P. Diddy). Not coincidentally, Ladytron will hit the road this spring alongside sonically like-minded outfit Datarock, and also appear at this summer's Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival. [Spin]Tickets are on sale for a June 25th show at Terminal 5 in NYC. All dates below....
