One of our commenters steers us in the direction of I Love Music’s this Bonnaroo thread , which was written by a member of the Tenderhooks, and which filled with hilarious backstage anecdotes:
well today’s update is that hot chip in a complete non-shocker are hogging EVERY FREE IPOD.
there was a sign up sheet for them and you had to write what band you were in beside your name and it was like
as if they need a fucking ipod, let alone all of the ipods. So they had me sign up anyway and were like “we’ll email one to you.” ?????
?uestlove whining and having a baby fit over the free beer selection (puhLEEZE)
john paul jones scoring free $250 sunglasses
lewis black NEVER LEAVES THE ARTISTS HOSPITALITY BAR
david cross hanging out with the black keys drummer, apparently bffs
el-p hugs each sound man and crew member after a performance, very cute
aes-rizzle is actually extremely hot in pers, and like 9 feet tall (and hangs out at the Garnier Fructis stand?!?!)
dj shadow is mysterious! he disappears and then suddenly appears onstage! maybe it’s just that no one knows what he actually looks like
tortoise are OLD. nonshocker. they have the guy from 90 Day Men playing with them now. i recognized him from this, and asked “where you in 90 day men?” and all the torti loled.
asked ziggy marley where he got his cigarettes and his entourage gasped
t00l were RIDICULOUS (in the best poss way), Maynard G. Krebs just made hippie jabs between every song, and bragged about being able to use soap in his air conditioned trailer. everyone cheered anyway, 90,000 people. why do hippies like t00l? it’s such sinister sounding stuff. my friend chris says they just call that kind of thing “deep” or “heavy”, and like to prove that they “can get into ‘deep’ stuff too.”
More grumpy goodness ensues, including Lily Allen’s non-surprising drunkenness, and the immortal words “Wolfmother? talk about pricks.”
