Day 4 was our last day of Bonnaroo which is always a bittersweet event. Our legs are tired, our skin is burnt (BECAUSE WE FORGOT TO APPLY OUR NEUTROGENA SUNSCREEN), but we’d gladly take that on the regular if it meant we got to stay on The Farm. We started off the..
Day 3 of Bonnaroo 2014 was our most grueling physical test yet. We started the day with a daytime dance session courtesy of the electro-pop duo Classixx who played a dance-worthy selection of their original songs as well their remixes of songs such as Yacht’s ‘Psychic City’. Later we caught..
On day 2 of Bonnaroo, Seun Kuti started off a delayed 2 PM set by leading his late father’s band, Egypt 80. They sounded fantastic but had a crew of the most apathetic facial-expressioned musicians. After deliberation we agreed that the shekere (think gourd-maraca hybrid) player won for least-enthused. We..
Day 1 of Bonnaroo 2014 for ML started off with checking out the one band man Robert DeLong who continued to impress by playing a mix of electronic instruments (including a Wii controller) along with drums and keys. With time to kill we stumbled across Quickie Mart at the Silent Disco..
Our bandanas are ready, we are fully lathered in Nutregena SPF-30 sunscreen and we are off to Bonnaroo. We’ve lost count on how many of these we’ve been to. Here is a quick and easy cheat list of acts you should see. We’ve picked 5 acts per day outside of any headliners...
Budweiser’s (and Jay Z’s) Made in America festival is back for a 2nd year, this year headlined by Mrs. Jay Z (Beyonce) (Saturday) and Nine Inch Nails (Sunday). Shockingly, Metallungies is getting to go.. because we blackmailed a lot of people! As a public service, ML will be on the..
I should have known the evening was doomed when I saw that Olay was a sponsor. Really, any sponsored show that isn’t a festival is usually pretty questionable. As soon as we walked in it was clear that only a small group of people were going to show up. The..
Another June is here and what do you know, MetalLungies is going back to a farm south of Nashville in Manchester, TN, yet again. As long we even have 56k-esque data service on our phone we will try to vine, instagram, twitter as much as possible as FCC regulations allow. Not braving..
Click to enlarge. If you’re going to be in LA this Sunday and you’re cultured, check out what promises to be an amazing tribute to 70s soul. Names that pop out: Miguel-Atwood Ferguson, Seu Jorge, Questlove. Someone tell Andrew Lojero that New York needs some hot buttered soul in between..
(image by Deirdre Maloney) Jay-Z just christened a billion dollar plus arena with 8 consecutive sold out shows.. in Brooklyn, NY. Re-read that and let that marinate. At this point Jay-Z can pull a Wayne Newton and just perform there as his exclusive home, I’m not even sure Brooklyn Nets fan..
