Watch Acoustic Sets from Backstage at Bonnaroo!

The Low Anthem
SPIN Staff

Sadly, we weren't allowed to build an actual fire at our Bonnaroo campsite, but we still kept a "Kumbayah" spirit afloat by inviting some of our favorite up-and-coming bands to visit our RV compound and play tunes for a few special guests -- including YOU, our beloved reader!

Check out video below of five fabulous, stripped down performances, recorded backstage at Bonnaroo: 1) mellow Americana enthusiasts Everest, 2) The Low Anthem, who hauled in a vintage pump organ for their mini-set, 3) gritty classic rockers Alberta Cross 4) old-time troubadour AA Bondy, 5) moody songsmiths Dear and the Headlights.
