Season 6, Episode 15 June 7, 2023 47m

Brad SteinerBarry CourterLord Taco

The perfect storm of audience, weather, and timing back in 2004

The 2004 My Morning Jacket show at Bonnaroo is legendary as the breakthrough show for the guys from Louisville, but also because it perfectly describes what Bonnaroo is all about - heat, rain, and a band giving everything it has to an adoring audience that is also weathering the elements.

MMJ frontman Jim James joined Brad, Barry and Lord Taco on The What Podcast to talk about that iconic show and the live double album that's due out next month in celebration of the set's 20th anniversary. James also discusses the relationship that My Morning Jacket has with the festival, how important it has been to the band's career arc, and their return to The Farm this year as part of their upcoming tour (get tickets here!).
