June 15, 2010 To get a break from the Tennessee heat, Bonnaroo bands gathered in Jeremiah Weed's Backyard, a down-home hangout featuring lawn games, BBQ, and cocktails made with Jeremiah Weed's vodkas and bourbons.
Check out video interviews below with French popsters Phoenix, who talked about the evolution of their songs since they kicked off their 2009 U.S. …

June 14, 2010 BEST CHARISMA: MIRANDA LAMBERTShe sang about "holding up my smoking gun" ("Kerosene"). She gloated to the nice girls: "But we got a lot in common you will see / We're just like you, only prettier" ("Only Prettier"). Her witty abrasiveness was probably a slight culture shock to the many country neophytes at Bonnaroo on Sunday, but Miranda Lambert was charming enough to win them over. …

Rather, Jay made a boisterous case that every major worldwide music festival should probably keep him on retainer as headliner for the foresee …
June 13, 2010 Nowadays, Weezer's Rivers Cuomo squanders the majority of his genius on KISS-lite arena riffs and regressive rhymes about malls and homies (see: 2009's Raditude and the preceding two albums), but his musical prowess isn't dead; it's just dormant.
Cuomo has jumped deeply down the rabbit hole of his current endeavor, which is to subvert the brilliant introspection of Weezer's Blue Album and Pinkerton albums (the crux of their fame) into …
