The lineup for this year’s Bonnaroo Music Festival is simply ridiculous.  Pretty much all my favorites are on the card, including: Jay – Z, Phoenix, The xx, Kid Cudi, Nas, The National, and many more.  A nutty new ticket package was just introduced called Bonnaroo Total Access – Here’s the deal:

For a hefty $18,500 (or $2,350 per person for 8 people), you get some pretty ill perks:

An on-stage viewing area for main stage performances, exclusive viewing areas for all peripheral stage shows, private showers and bathrooms, 24/7 golf cart service, an on-site concierge, open bars and hospitality tents scattered around the grounds, and pre-stocking of the bus with your favorite goodies.  It may be a touch expensive, but it definitely beats sleeping next to some candy-flipping grimey ass hippies. (Which is still pretty chill)  To check out a video on the ticket package, hit more: (more…)

Today, Phoenix released a free, live, 8-song album from when they were touring in Australia.  It includes a 10 minute ‘Love Like A Sunset’ that climaxes harder than a dude on Viagra. I’ve over-played the shit out of Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix, but these live tracks put a fresh new spin on the hottest tracks.  It downloads into an easy zip file that you can just drag into your iTunes.  Dank… Hit more for the download link (more…)

The masterminds at MTV were on to something when they decided to hire Snooki, one of the sweaty co-stars of MTV’s Jersey Shore, to give interviews on the red carpet at this week’s Grammy Awards. Alternative album of the year award winners Phoenix, were unlucky enough to get stopped by the dumpy guidette.  The results are pretty much amazing.  Click here to watch the interview.
