With Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival now just two days away, many concertgoers are prepping for the excursion by studiously examining the festival's roadmap to musical prosperity, a.k.a. the timetable. And with a lengthy, eclectic bill, even the most scholarly attendees likely detect a few unfamiliar band names. Ever heard of Dr. Dog, Elvis Perkins or Girl Talk? Well, thankfully, in an effort to aid those out of the loop, Bonnaroo has teamed with Lala.com to set up a music player offering tunes from these Bonnaroo performing artists and more. Head on over to bonnaroo.com, enter the 2007 artist page, and click on any untried artist's moniker. A brief bio will then appear as will a pop-up offering a stream of that artist's tunes. Our suggestion: Explore the available tracks, discover your preferred selections, and sing along when the bands take the stage amidst scores of fans in Tennessee's backwoods. But get to it; the festival starts in just two days, 22 hours, and 7 minutes!
Beginning Wednesday June 13, be sure to check in with SPIN.com throughout the festival for complete Bonnaroo 2007 coverage including live reviews, video interviews, and much, much more.
