Barry, Brad and Lord Taco from The What podcast, the premiere podcast about Bonnaroo specifically and festivals in general, will each share their schedules between now and the event. Up first is Lord Taco himself.

What? What is that? Is that a light at the end of the tunnel? For the first time in months, hope springs eternal in the Bonnaroo world. So let's make some picks, why don't we? This week on the What Podcast, we go through some news of the week and we get round one of the What Podcast picks. This week we feature Lord Taco. Who will he see? What will he do? Whose mom will he meet? Lord Taco's pick this week on the What Podcast, Brad Steiner, Barry Porter. It starts right now. You're always trying to do your best. The What Podcast, which bans this year that matter. Can you feel it? Can you feel it? It is happening. Bonnaroo 2021 really for the first time guys feels like it's legitimately happening for the two years, two years in the making. We've been waiting for this moment and I don't know about you. I feel like this is this is it. Barry Courter, Laura taco, Bradstine of the What Podcast going through this week, at least some of the news that happened with Bonnaroo. And of course, at the end, the picks. We start our three week process of finding all the bands that we want to see a Bonnaroo in this week. We start with a Mr. Lord taco. And it's so exciting. Who? So excited. Oh, hey, it's me. Oh, hey, it's me. Do you feel do you feel like I do that? This is really feels like this is the start of something. Oh, yeah, absolutely. Started last week, started last week, week ago, Friday when all the announcements started. And then for me that Monday, Tuesday, when we did our third super secret show, that's when it really. Yeah, that's when, you know, the night sweat started. That's when it's the reality. Is that a band that I have not found yet? Should be. That's when you're right. And then a great list on the lineup. I didn't know. I'd sweats. Yeah, that's when the reality of I need to get all my gear out and I need to make sure it still exists. And yeah, we're going to be on the farm and probably when you guys are listening to this two weeks. Yeah, it'll be two weeks from when you guys are listening to this. That's crazy. I know the big deal is, is that, you know, it really does feel like it's happening. But you say two weeks, Barry, do you realize that I'm going to be calling you driving into Chattanooga, Tennessee, saying I need you to come over and help me with some stuff? Yeah. Yeah. You're ready. The night sweats. That's part of the night sweats. Very good to come over to the house and start, you know, it's going to be like, oh, he knows too, because he's getting the same phone call. But it is going to be one part of it. But also there's going to be some clogged toilets that need to be fixed. I've got some good work on the walls that need to be done. We need to get tacos face back on because that was that was not a happy looking face. What do you mean? OK, I'm always happy. Yeah, there it is. You're just not you're not you're not happy with me coming to town. Is that what he's waiting on that phone call? He's like, happy taco. I need you to come and get this couch in this chair. And oh, by the way, take the garbage out. Oh, yeah, I know there's going to be chores. Garden is some lightening, light gardenings happening. We throw things at my across the street neighbor that I house so much. Yeah. Plants and dead fish in the yard. It happens. Things just start to happen. You know, the let's start with the way that it came out. We said this last week, Barry, that when something is done really well, it needs to be celebrated. When there is honest criticism, there's times to talk about it. But I feel as though once all of the stuff that we've been waiting for, when that weight lifted off of our shoulders, everything started to feel a little different. When you saw that lineup, what was the first thing that you felt, thought, et cetera? Good. Finally ready. I've told you and you guys probably have looked at it a whole lot more than I have. I'm not a I don't look at it and get all worked up at conflicts because I know I've done it enough. I know it's going to be for me. I'll have my big ones. And then I know I'll miss some of those that I even said I was going to go to. So in the past, that's been a lot of fun for us to have meetings where we all get together and talk about our conflicts. We don't have time. Yeah, but we don't have time. And you're out of town and we, you know, it's such a different year. I know some of our some of the folks that we communicate with are having those conversations, but I don't know that we're going to have time. So that's different to your question. What did I think? You know, I'm just ready to go. I love the what three hour my morning jacket. I'm excited about that. We don't get away all your picks right now. But let's start with like the like the top level stuff. Do you like the lineup less when you see it broken down in the grid? I oftentimes feel as though I love a lineup until I see it gridded out. And then I realize how really light it is. You know, it was sort of that problem with with ACL Fest, although it didn't come with a grid. And, you know, a schedule. But boy, the more I started diving into how the song can be spread out on the video. Jesus, I hated that lineup. It's terrible. Yeah. Anything change your mind with how much you like the line to begin with? Not for me, not for me. But that changed a couple of years ago when they started breaking out the acts by days because you remember four or five years ago, they just put the line up out and you didn't even know what line up was. You just put the line up out and you didn't even know what days certain people were going to be on. And that's a great point. So it's it's lessened that angst, if you will, quite a bit for me, you know, because I already know so and so is on Friday, Saturday, Sunday type of thing. So that's lessened some of that. I'm I'm so focused on I've been so focused on is this thing actually going to happen because of the logistics that the schedule for me kind of felt like I haven't even really. Well, go around the go around the room here. Do you think it's going to happen? I think so right now. What's happening in the world? I think so right now. The news came out about Lollapalooza. They said there was no significant super spreader. You think you believe it? Yeah. Yeah, I mean, I do. I mean, I believe I believe in enough. Yeah. Now, again, it's I think that's I think that's the right word. I believe it enough. Let's go back to the you know, it's whose ox is being gored. Oh, my God. Leaps in a row with this. If you know somebody that's sick, it's a horrible event. But yeah, 200 and what they have 280 people out. Yeah, something like that. Also, nobody. The only reason I ask the only reason I ask is because it's a really hard thing to try and explain or find out or trace back to a group of people who are not even from Chicago. So I don't know how they're getting that data. I don't like there's not like massive contact tracing that's happening at Lollapalooza. Right. So how exactly are they finding out and then find this 280 number? It seems just a bit pulled out of somebody's ass. So I it's not like the guys that traveled to Chicago from, you know, Des Moines are telling you back. Check back in. Right. Yeah, they're not going back to Chicago to get tested. Yeah. Fair enough. They didn't call back and say, hey, we're good. Fair enough. Yeah. Whether it's whether it's true or not, though. Yeah. Like, where am I going with this? It's still a good enough headline. It. Well, that's the thing. So where it came from me from the very first thing that we talked about when I came back from Lollapalooza was what Barry, they gave a good show of it being pretty responsible. And it felt good and it felt like everything was going pretty well. And it was going to be the thing that the rest of the industry sort of, you know, use as a pattern afterwards. But was it truly effective? It's weird how, like, over the last couple of weeks and months, we're all experts on first a vaccine, second, an economic policy, and then third now foreign relations. Everybody's an expert on these topics based on what's in the news cycle. I'm not an expert on any of these things. I don't know any of these topics. I just go with what I hear and what I learn and what I read and what I try to at least be smart about. I think that the number is not two hundred eighty. I'll be honest with you. I don't think it's two hundred eighty, but I don't think it's five thousand. I do feel much better, though, after the regulations that Bonnaroo put in. I would feel even better, though, because the news came out from A.E.G. over the week that they would be requiring nothing but vaccinated people to show up at their festivals and their venues. I would feel much better about that. But Bonnaroo doesn't have that kind of time. No, I do that better about it. I do feel better about it. Long story short. And I think we talked about it briefly on our last show. And you ask, and I don't think I had it right. But I think Daniel and Charlotte, the real rebuke us had it probably closer to right because it makes more sense. The question was, when are they going to check for that? And I think they're right in that people will get into the campgrounds and then you're going to have to go to whatever center within your campground and get that wristband. You're going to have to show your vaccination and your negative test, which is, by the way, a different story than Lollapalooza, because what happened in Lollapalooza was they would not give you one of those wristbands. They only got that if you were backstage. If you got one of those. The reason why they didn't do that in the front of houses that you just take it off and give it to somebody else. They wanted that everyday check at Lollapalooza. Bonnaroo doesn't have that ability, to be honest with you. No, and their point was it would be at the gate and it would just take forever. I mean, it already takes forever to get in. So this is it. It's still going to be somewhat awkward, especially if you unfortunately test positive. They're going to just basically march you right out. They're going to test you again and march out. So it's going to be pretty ugly. Yeah. If you're even questioning it and take care of it, do something. So, Taco, you feel better? I mean, I've seen the women you bring back to camp. You're going to be fine with whatever. Yeah, I'm feeling better. I am. I've got my, you know, personally, I've got my vaccine card. I've got a mask I'm going to bring. I'm just going to keep it with me at all times. I don't know if I'll wear it at all times, but you know. Mary's going to wear the mask. Mary said this last week. He's going to wear the mask. And frankly, I think that's fine. I'll be honest with you. I was at a bar last night. And I mean, it's a fine buy. It's a place I go to all the time. It felt a little cramped. Popped it on real quick. I felt okay about it. I don't think that I was the best mask guy beforehand. I mean, why would you want to cover this up? At least it doesn't go over your hair. But I didn't really. I wasn't the easiest to convince that you should be wearing a mask. Not to get political about this, but it just doesn't feel very impactful. Well, nobody likes doing it. But you know. Nobody. Yeah. I mean, who wants to? But here's the weird thing. Go out and put a mask on. It's true. But here's the weird thing. I was at this bar. Once I put it on, I was sitting there at the bar drinking. I actually like the look of the mask. I think that I'm actually now part of the mask culture that I'm willing to make this a fashion accessory. I kind of like it. Well, what helped me was I got the PBR mask. Once I got that, I couldn't wait to put that on. Oh, God. That's so good. Dude. Do you think that at some point we're going to look in the future and they're going to have a mask that you can suck on? It's going to taste like the things that you want. What if the PBR mask doesn't suck? You start sucking. God, that does taste like a good lager. That is an award. That is award winning. That tastes like a blue ribbon. Scented blue ribbon. Are you thinking like an integrated vape system in them with the mask? Yes. That's exactly what I'm thinking. Put the vape thing on your back, hook it up to the mask, and you could be just sucking through the vape all day. The way that this could turn into the greatest thing to ever happen to the weed industry. You could be sucking. Are you listening, weed industry? Yes. Please, all of the weed industry. The candle industry. That's what it is. Who's our contact in the weed industry? Who's going to get us in? Careful. Taco. Careful. Did you just hear Dad? Careful. We're talking about revolutionizing the weed industry by putting it through the mask. I know, but there's some guy out there going, no. Dad decided to make it Bed Bath & Beyond. Yeah, I'm going that way. You guys are about to out your weed guy. This definitely falls in the beyond category of Bed Bath & Beyond. You guys are about to start naming names and I'm over here trying to come up with a candle industry. Some poor guys out there are like, don't name names. This is definitely part of the beyond part of the industry. This is part of the beyond. Dad is talking about how we can put a vanilla candle into our masks. What are you talking about? Calm. Calm. Yep. Blueberry. Anyways. Alright, so. Yeah, I guess to answer your question, I feel better. I don't even remember the question. You just asked me if I feel better after you were introduced these protocols. Yeah. Yeah, we should backpedal before we name names. I live next to a corner store where you can buy weed at the front desk. You know, it's like it doesn't matter who my guy is. It's literally the corner store right there. I can put the camera on it. Okay. Alright. Well, Tennessee is different. Yeah. Sorry. So, so here's the deal. So everybody feels comfortable about the protocols. Everybody feels comfortable about the lineup. I don't want to. I don't want to be the guy who starts using this opportunity to bitch about the conflicts that happened for lineup. I look everybody's got conflicts and everybody's conflicts are different. This is not the time and place. I just want to I just want to be there and I'll worry about the conflicts when I'm there. Exactly. Oh, for sure. For sure. I'm not going to sit here and start, you know, crying poetic about how much I really wish I saw goose instead of my morning jacket. That's for the time and the place of just being there. And that's what the brilliant part of this year, by the way, which I'm so excited about. I feel like this is going to be the year that we find things and find ourselves in situations that are going to be so bizarrely different than we normally find ourselves in because we just want to be there so bad. And we don't care what we're doing. That's right. You know, they could see this is the year they should have put like the shittiest country artists in America on the lineup. Right. Where we just all find ourselves at a look, I'm so happy to be here. Yeah. I you you said it. Yeah, that's what I was trying to say. You said it there. That was my point. I have not even looked at conflict because I don't care. I just want to be there. Yeah. That's you. You nailed it. Well, it's part after all the crap we went through with these rumors about, oh, there's a headline and dropping. Oh, there's a replacement. There's a last minute. You know, at the end of that doesn't matter because we're going to be there. We're going to we're going to be there. We're going to finally be back together. You know, taco. Somebody one time told me that, you know, when it comes to Bonnaroo, you're there. You're there. And you're there. What else you got to go? What else you got to do? I might as well see some music. All right. That guy, that guy gets it. Whoever said that gets it. So before we get in tacos picks back to your point, Ross is I guess when the lineup comes out and we're all, you know, so excited about seeing it. And we're also, you know, I forgot my point. What the hell did you say? Well, you know, everybody was grabbing pitchforks over this rumor. Yeah. So did anybody put any sort of weight into that? It's like everybody on the message board put weight into it. But at the end of the day, the message said, I said on the show, there's no reason to believe that festival pass insider pass, whatever infinity passes to be not trusted. They've always been right. But if you reread what they said, it was, I think. I think they're going to lose a headliner in it may still happen. Here's the problem that I have. And you guys beat me up about this all the time. I just think there are certain people that you trust. And you look at like they're clowns. There are certain people in this hemisphere that are total clowns when it comes to this. And I don't know the info ru people know exactly who I'm talking about. And, you know, you pluck some information from this person, you pluck some information from that person. And all of a sudden you put it out like it's gospel. And then all of a sudden, it doesn't come true. Oh, let me come up with some ways where I think that I might be able to cover my tracks, because I didn't really have the information to begin with. I know it's talked about give me a break. The difference is dollars later, let me say how great I am. Well, the difference is, you know, with when it comes to us, we go to the source, and we checked with our source, and there wasn't anything there. So we didn't say anything about it. I had nothing to say, Barry, do you have anything to say? No, no, I don't. I don't get into all that interest. You know, like I said, that's right. You guys, you guys share with me these things and then I try to go to as high as sources I can and Brad, you do the same. Russ, you do the same. You're telling me that you don't read a message board and then put out that information and say it's gospel only to. Interesting. I'm going to write that down. Yeah, we go to, we check our sources and if there's something to report on, we report it. If there's not, we'd leave it alone. And sometimes I'm wrong. That's the beauty. I was doing we were going to get that schedule earlier in the day on Tuesday. I was, I was get it till after dinner. So I believe you. I was told that Kendrick Lamar was on the Lollapalooza lineup. We all have these pieces of information to bear. The thing is that you don't pretend like you never mind. If you know, you know, you know exactly what I'm talking about and I can't stand this person. Well, it doesn't change my. It doesn't change my day one way or the other. Well, the only, the reason it well, we can go ahead and say it because I mean, we talk to Daniel all the time. Daniel is so invested in this. Tame Impala show. I hope. No, wait a second. I know who I'm talking about. I wasn't saying I hate. That's a totally different thing. That's a rumor. I would love for you to like make that a point to say, oh, wait a second. The rumor was we were going to lose Tame Impala and the rumor was we were going to lose everyone. Everybody had a reason that we were going to lose Lizzo. We're going to lose. Yeah. Just pick a headline and we're going to lose them. But Daniel. Yeah. I even have. Yeah. We lost the Rolling Stones. Yeah. Yeah. That's a big deal. Yeah. He's so invested in this Tame Impala show that, yeah. I mean, Barry, I said, I said this on Twitter. Like I saw the Tame Impala show after LCD sound system. And look, I love Tame and I love that last album. I think the less I know, the better is, is one of the great songs of the decade. I can't say that enough. I'm the only station in the country playing it still to this day. But that show was good. LCD was great. That show was good. I was expecting. This show that was coming up this year to be insane. Now, I'm still expecting it to be insane, but I'm a little stunned that it's only seventy five minutes. I know I'm a little crazy that this is not an hour and a half. I bring it up because I asked and I don't want to belabor it because I think it's I think it's a relevant question for all of us. You asked me, I mean, three hours, my morning jacket, you know that, you know, me, that's my favorite band. I'm expecting mind blowing. I want I hope I hope the shows are as good as we all hope they're going to be. You know what I mean? Well, that's my part of the question. There's two ways to look at it. Do we are we, you know, expecting mind blowing or are we just going to be OK that we're there? I don't know. That's I don't want to say I'm going to this Bonnaroo with low expectations. So that anything that happens is better than I, but I'm also not going thinking this is going to be the greatest event I know of our lives. But I think the answer to your question is on taco shirt. Yeah, there you go. I'm wearing it. It's never not great. It's never not. It's never not great. It's never not. So yeah, there are there are so many opportunities. We're going to talk about this in the next couple of weeks as we get to Bonnaroo. But there are so many opportunities that I see for really, really, really special moments. And if if I had to guess, there are people out there that really want to make these special moments. I'm going to wax poetic about a band that I'm not necessarily over the moon about. But I think that they're exactly who we need exactly right now. And we can talk about this in the upcoming weeks. But the Foo Fighters, they have the ability of tying everybody together, and they'll make everybody happy. No matter what they find. They'll show up and do something really goofy and make it an entirely momentous occasion. That doesn't even matter, even if they showed up on a golf cart and showed up at the beer exchange, you know, and then they just started crushing beers. It would be the most glorious moment. Yeah. This is what I'm saying. Like the Foo Fighters have this ability. Dave Grohl has this ability of doing something so tiny and making it a mountain of news. If that dude shows up at in camp and just starts chugging beers with somebody at camp, it becomes national news and makes Bonnaroo look like it's the place to be for every moment that exists. That's all it takes. I think to that point, he'll do it to that point. And I really want to hear. I chug beers at camp all the time and nobody cares. I do. I leave there and I tell Kelly, Kelly said, how was your weekend? Taco chug beers, Kelly. It was amazing. We care. I watched Taco Chug beers for five straight days. It was a great. No, to your point, and I think you're exactly right. And I think it, back to your question about the schedule and all that. My expectation is to go and just see what happens and let it happen. And that would be my recommendation. Is that a Tame Impala reference? Let it happen. I hear that. I hear what you're doing here. I am picking up. Just let it happen. I think that I think that would be my recommendation for anybody is to because we've had so long to think about this. I just worry about not worry rather than focus on a show and event, whatever a band that you really want to see. My recommendation is just go and see what happens and let the let the plazas happen. Let the experiences happen. Let the show happen that you don't think, you know, that was maybe not on your list at the end of the weekend at the end of the week. See how it was. Look back. Taco. It's weird. Barry says let it happen. I said less. I know it's better. You know, that's the way I'm going into this weekend. Same thing. Same thing. It seems like you're hinting at Tame Impala. Yeah, I do know Tame Impala is not doing a secret show into the campsites. That's not happening. I don't think that you're going to have like a group of tame people showing up. It just bothered. You're right, Barry. Barry is totally right about this. You know, but you could make that rule about any year of Bonnaroo. Any year is a perfect year for you to let go. Any year. Yeah, sure. But there's so much built up for this. I agree. I agree. All right. So let's get into week one of our show picks. I want to play a little bit of our buddy Nick Turner, current Camp Nut Butter invitee from the jump. Nick Turner is part of Camp Nut Butter and he's in a band called Minist. He's got a incredible, incredible little side hustle with this Minist. It's a really, really funky band that you're going to love. This is Minist. We'll come right back with maybe my most excited moment of the What Podcasts of the Year. The reason I'm so excited about these guys is because I don't know what to expect. I know exactly which bands Barry's going to choose. Next week when we do Barry picks, I mean, you might as well fast forward, fast forward, fast forward. I know every band that Barry's picking, but I have no idea who will be on Lord Taco's list of shows to see a Bonnaroo. No clue. Barry, we did this last week. I can name three. Outside of that, I don't know how far I can go. What are your top three that you think Taco's going to pick? Let's write it down. What did we say? We said turquoise, mastodon, and was it Foo Fighters? Was that the third? What was the other? What was the third? Yeah, who wouldn't go to Foo Fighters though? Yeah, I think that that's a little too easy. I agree with Taco on this. I think there's... Who was that third? There was the other one. I mean, it's like saying like, we know Brad's going to Lizzo. And Britney and whatever. I mean, come on. I don't remember who the third was now. Well, I mean, that's the point. Taco is such a hard one to figure out. I don't know. I know certain things that he likes, but I don't know what he's doing in that bus. Yeah, you do. You know. That last 90 seconds. There's got to be more things that happen inside that bus. Well, I think you'll be surprised. I think you'll be surprised with my picks. I'm very excited about it. So I think that turquoise and mastodon were the two that we absolutely... Those are absolutely... Yes, those are going to happen. But do we have anything else, Barry? Anything else that we just are willing to bank or check on? Anything? I can't, you know. Who do you have? I don't think I think that's it. Yeah. Okay. I'm looking through this. I'm desperately looking. Goose. Yeah, goose. Goose is on there. Hang on. Don't get... I think that he might forgo goose for my morning jacket. That's the point. That's where it gets down to. You know what? You might know my taste, but you don't know which one I'm going to when there's a conflict. Yeah. That's a tough one because he might actually even choose Mark or Bella and Loop Daddy instead of goose. That's the part that I'm really, really confused by. I mean, I just keep going through this line of Barry. I can only say for sure two things. And I think that you and I agree. Turquoise and mastodon. Yeah. You want to start on Thursday? Taco. Taco picks. On the What Podcast. Taco picks for 2021. I cannot wait to hear this. Yeah. Let's start on Thursday. You ready? I'm ready. I think you know, we're going to, I'm going to go to Brist and Moroni. My boy. I really enjoyed having him on the show. He was really cool. So that's three to three forty five. Brist and Moroni. That's my first. That's my first Bono Room. Are you listening to Brist and Moroni right now? Not right now. I know not right now because you're on the show. I know how your mind works. I know how your mind works. But are you listening to him at any point in your day? Actually, no, I haven't. I haven't had him in the rotation or anything. But I'm in rotation. He's a really good songwriter. Yeah, I agree. Yeah. But he's getting into thirst trap territory, though. I'm telling this when I see him. He's posting a lot of shirtless pictures. He is trying to push that on. Well, I've seen way too much of his chest hair lately. We know how you feel about shirtless performers. That's that's that's that's right out for you. That's well. And hopefully he hopefully he comes back to nut butter and hangs out with a shirtless. Maybe maybe shirtless. And you dream big. You really. All right. So moving on Thursday, we you know, we talked about the Grand Ole Opry and we talked about how disappointing it is every time. I'm not really interested in the Grand Ole Opry, but I am interested because Barry pointed out there is a performer playing the Grand Ole Opry from Chattanooga. Amethyst Keea. I checked her out. She's fantastic. She's now there is now she's also playing Moon River the week after Bonnaroo. So if I don't get to the Grand Ole Opry, I won't be heartbroken. But, you know, we've always pined about Dolly playing Bonnaroo. Amethyst Keea has a cover of Jolene that is fantastic. And hopefully she plays it for the Grand Ole Opry. I don't know. OK, that might be worth. Yes, she was. That might be worth, you know, checking out Barry. Tell me about tell me about this chicky baby. She grew up here. Now lives up in East Tennessee. She's really, really good. Soulful country, country, soulful. I mean, it crosses all kind of genres. Right. Taco. I mean, it's yeah. I mean, just got a great voice. She has a wonderful voice. And Brad, are you aware of any other black country singers? Her name is Yola. Well, yeah, I was I was that you were going to say who Darius Rocker is another one. Very strong name is not Hootie. His name is Darius Rocker. No, he's Hootie. And then no, he's the other guy. The other guy is the one who's not Hootie. The other guy is Blowfish. Yeah. Which one of you is Blowfish? Love Hootie. Hate Blowfish. I can't. Barry, this question has been asked for 30 years since. That's which one's Hootie guys. I will say, though, as an aside, don't you think that, like, Hootie would be an incredible modern artist? Oh, absolutely. On a bizarre like early Friday, Saturday, afternoons, Saturday, Sunday, Sunday, Sunday and Sunday. If they put them on this tent and they play nothing but cracker view things, that place would be exploding with letter cry. Yeah, I don't disagree. I think they are. They are a great modern artist. I know. I'm fascinated that you were such a big fan. Yeah, it just it's different age group. Have we talked about this? Yes. We talked about all over the country. Yes, you followed them all over the country. We literally told this story. Yeah. Thank God. Tell it again. All right. I don't want to interrupt. He's on a roll. We're still going on Thursday. So my next pick for Thursday is Devin Gilfillion again because we had him on the show. I had such a good time talking to him. Really intrigued by his music and just him as a person. I don't want to miss Devin. 845 to 945. I think that that's going to be that slot on Thursday that you saw with Courtney Barnett. Yeah, you saw with Alabama Shakes. He's not on the same stage, but you know, it does feel as though that's going to be the moment for Thursday. If it's not Larkin Poe, it's going to be. I agree. Yeah. Somebody might think the big something is that thing. But you know, I'm a Devin Gaville fan to begin with. Me too. Yeah, I don't want to miss Devin. And then late night Thursday that you got too many zoos. They're also playing Friday at the beer exchange. I don't know if you saw that. I did see that. And the dudes hit me up and they're like, if you guys come out and do the podcast, it'll be too many brews. Am I right? Am I right? Yeah. Really good. Really good. It's good. It's good. It's good. Yeah. So, yeah, we'll see what happens Thursday night. If I don't make it out for too many zoos. You know, I'll just catch them Friday at the beer exchange. You know why you're not going to catch them? Because you take it easy on Thursday. Just pack it in early Thursday. Pack it in early. It'll be OK. Yeah, I need to do that because my last Thursday at Bonnaroo didn't pack it in. Before you go to Friday and Saturday and Sunday, what is the busiest day for you? Oh, Saturday. OK. Well, Friday and Saturday are both equally busy, but Saturday is a little busier. OK. Yeah. So you're going to be busy. You could hit a little hard on Thursday. No problem. Yeah. Well, the difference is 2019 Thursday was my stacked day and Thursday's the day I missed everything because I went too hard. Yes, you did. Mistakes were made. I came back to camp. Yeah, I was told I was pinballing between the big heads. I was just. Yeah. Yeah. Not couldn't couldn't make a straight line, but I did put myself to bed. I needed no help getting to bed. I can always get back to bed. That's true. You know, when you get out, when you write out, when you write like the tombstone of taco, Barry, you're going to say two things. It's going to here lies Lord Russ Jackson, Lord Taco in the next two lines, you're going to be good at identifying babies, good at getting in bed. Yeah, I can always get myself to bed. I can always I can always point out if it's a baby or not. And that's how to get himself back to bed. And yeah, just some guys can't do that. There are a lot of people at Bonnaroo that crawl in the wrong tent. It happens. Yeah, I'm like a homing pigeon. I can I can always get home and weirdly enough, Brian Stone has had every woman that's ever done that. I wouldn't get a name names. They always seem to crawl into the wrong tent and they wake up and see him. All right, Friday. Here we go. Yeah, that's Thursday. All right. Friday. That's a good Thursday. That's strong. Yeah. And you know, there's some other stuff happening. I know that I've I definitely got some blind spots. I feel like there's I'm probably missing something that I probably should see, but I don't necessarily know. So, you know, I'm open to suggestions. We all are. Yeah. Thursday, I'm starting out with M.D. Mark Tar. And a baby. Yeah, we all need to go. We all need to go. Hey, our pay our pay tribute to the ones who leaked the lineup. But they never forget. Hashtag never forget. Never forget. But honestly, you know, we never would have heard of him. We probably not would have even listened to him. But if you go back and listen to him, he's great. It's really good. Right. Really, really good. Yeah. Yeah. Yes. Mm hmm. But I can't wait to see. I can't wait to see what that crowd's like. Oh, I think it's going to be a fantastic crowd because everybody's going to want to just be there just to just to say thanks. Yeah. Just to say thanks. Yeah, that's the problem. It's it's going to be like a 15 minute crowd. I mean, I'm really worried about it. Like, well, and, you know, you know, it's going to be empty. I don't know if there's any sanctions from AC. The difference is like we were all excited about Little Dickie two years ago, and that was a horrible show. I think that was the biggest disappointment. It was going to be good. Yeah. I think it's going to be good. But I don't know what kind of sanctions AC puts on people that, you know, maybe they're going to blacklist them. This may be our one and only chance to see him. You know, I don't know if there's any. I think they're cool with it. It's probably. Yeah, it's probably. Yeah. It might have been. It might have even been a plant. You know, it might have been on purpose. It'd be a horrible backlash if they were to do something mean to him, because everybody just thinks it's funny anyway. Well, it's going to be a good show. My next pick, as you know, it's Turquoise. And yeah, you know, we saw Turquoise. That was the last show Brad, you and I went to. That was like February 2020, and it was right before the world shut down. That was like the last, quote unquote, normal thing I remember doing. It's really nuts to Barry, because that was the last thing I did before I moved to New Orleans. It was like the last Chattanooga thing that I did. It was the last Chattanooga thing. Yeah. Yeah. And we fought. We fought till the minute we left. Do we really want to do this? Do we really want to go? Do we really want to go? It's so late. And it was like a Tuesday, wasn't it? Yeah, it was like it was like a weeknight and it was just a random. Let's just go to this concert. It's Turquoise. And so then they had they had a local opening band and all the crowd was there for the local opening band. And once they went off stage, the place indeed. Nobody was there for Turquoise. Yeah. Like they didn't know what they were. They didn't know what they were coming to. You know, the show at Bonnaroo is going to be much better. Yes. Let's talk about the show at Bonnaroo, because it's not going to be a Turquoise show. They are doing that's right. Not their own material. They're covering the entire Talking Heads album Remain in Light. And they have Jerry Harris from Talking Heads and Adrian Ballou. Adrian Ballou. I think. No, go ahead. I'm sorry. Adrian Ballou is one of my favorite artists, period. I'm a big King Crimson fan. Adrian Ballou has done. He's done work with David Bowie. If you've listened to any artist in the 80s or 90s, Adrian Belew was probably a session musician. He's worked with so many artists. I look you guys, you guys pointed this out to me the moment that this came out two years ago. I beat you up for it. And that show at that tiny little club in Chattanooga really changed my mind. They are incredible. They don't miss a note. They're much younger than I thought they would be. I thought they were so old, but a group of old guys. This was a fun. They know what they're doing. That's a fun dance party that they know how to pull off. And I think you're exactly right about this taco. And the Adrian Ballou thing is so incredibly important because we keep looking for these moments on this lineup over and over and over every lineup. We do this every year. These moments where it ties us to some sort of tradition or the past. And they're there so long as you're willing to go get them. Right. Yes. Yeah. It's interesting. I was thinking about this today, this very thing. There are certain albums and bands that are milestones, I guess, that other bands can look back to. And I would think the Foo Fighters, for one, would probably point to Remain in Light as one of those albums that influenced them, whether you hear it or not directly. But that album was seminal. I mean, it was huge. Yeah. Even if you're not a Talking Heads fan, I guarantee every song on that album, you will recognize. You'd be like, oh, yeah, because it's such a. Just with the bass and the funk and the the stories behind the bass and the funk. Yeah. Now, it's a great pick. You and I are both going to be there. It's definitely on my list. No surprise there. I I hear this kind of stuff, and I wonder if this is like setting the stage of having like a Talking Heads show. I hope so. Oh, I would I would be ecstatic. I think that the one thing this festival has not had is that the David Burns show that I saw in ACL Fest was really great. It really is. In fact, it was it was fine in the moment. The theater show was 10 times better because he got to expand and and be a lot. You know, the stage show is just incredible. And it became so much more expansive. And they did the entire history of that band. I I really do think that if one of those moments that that sets Bonnaroo apart in the in the year's future is finding some sort of way of having David Burns say yes to a Talking Heads show. Oh, that would be fantastic. If he's going to say yes, he's going to say yes to Bonnaroo because it's the only festival that's really invested in him. And I mean, he's been invested in other festivals. Don't get me wrong. He's been in other places. He did. Was there was it eight or nine? Yeah, we were doing that. And he did a lot of head stuff. Yeah. And he did some head stuff. I know. But if you could, but if you could bill it as a Talking Heads show, even though he doesn't get along with any of those guys and he does not want to do this, if they could pull this off, you know, you can keep the raids against machines, keep them. I want that Talking Heads show. I don't know if anybody talks about it enough. Yeah. And you know, what's interesting is he apparently brought a bicycle with him and hung around for a couple of days and rode back and forth on that back road. I don't know if you ever heard that. I did. They're checking out all. Yeah. And that cool. I just mean, David Burn riding around backstage on a bicycle. I mean, I know. I mean, he could he could get up and start running lights. And it wouldn't surprise me. You know, he could be doing those bizarre random. He could be serving you corn dogs and it would not. You know, fair enough. Slicy pie or spicy pie or spicy pie. All right. We're only into the afternoon on Friday. Come on. I even scratched the surface of Friday. All right. Next up, by the way, if if if the next two shows of picks become really short, just come back to this one. We'll give you all our thoughts. OK. Yeah. Thanks for this one. We'll go back to it. We'll talk about Talking Heads all day long. All right. Next pick. I'm headed over to Orville Peck. I just want to see what the fuck. I am so intrigued by Orville Peck. He's so weird. And, you know, where's the mask? He's got the the the the flashy mask. And it's it's so bizarre. So at Lollapalooza, I'm sitting I'm sitting in like a little lawn chair or something. And coming through with these like it's Orville Peck. And it's one thing that's Orville Peck and wearing his little mask and his hat. But he had like five people behind him, all dressed the exact same way. And it wasn't like they all walked in individually where you could be like, well, look at that loser. No, it was they all walked in exactly the same way. And like this perfect like geese flocking to the south moment. Like they were waved out. It was brilliant. He had it all planned out, even walking through the artist area. This guy has every second of this show figured out. He's got every second of his life figured out when he puts on that mask and his hat. There is not a moment of his life where he is not like absolutely scheduled. That's nuts to me. Yeah, it fascinates me. I every second is scheduled for him. Yeah, I want to see what the show is like. I want to know what this is all about. Well, that's a good thing for you, but also you are now four and a half hours into the day. We're only half way through. Four and a half hours and it's 5.30 now. I hope you have some sort of nap time there for Friday. Well, yeah. So from next up for me at 6.15 is Dashboard. Dashboard Confessional. Overglass Animals, huh? That's right. OK. And I'll tell you why. Think of how many 40 year old moms are going to be at that dashboard show. You are there to bring somebody back to camp. I know you're bringing somebody back to camp. If there's ever a chance, this is my chance. You are preying on the weak, sir. They're going to be crying. He's going to screaming at the end. They're going to be bawling and you're going to find somebody that you can pull into your bosom that is obscene, sir. I think it's brilliant. I like I like the hustle. I like the hustle. You like the hustle. Well, there's another there's another Chattanooga connection here because Dashboard's guitarist is from Chattanooga. Yeah, that's true. It's very true. Yeah. So this is a long day already, Taco. I mean, what are you doing next? It's curating. Macedon's next. Yeah. OK. Dashboard to Macedon. How about that? Unless unless unless an hour and a half dashboard confessional thing works out for you, then what are you going to do? He's done for the rest of the night. He's done for the night. He's going to find that. Who? Who might close it out at Dashboard? Yeah. Honestly, Barry, that could be the best case scenario, because knowing the way that he drinks, baby, are there's no way he's lasting another. So can we set up a woman to just take him back to camp and put him to bed? No, I can put myself to bed. I don't need any help getting to bed. Oh, well, you're going to be going if you're not taking care of this. You know, in his is his diagrams going to have one of those, you know, if do not. Yeah, it's going to be like a flow chart. It's either going to go this way or that way. We'll see. And for us, I mean, you are you're setting yourself up for an absolute disaster. On every level, this doesn't feel right. What are the chances of you know, everybody for a year old, the 40 year old dashboard who then wants to go to Mastodon? Well, you know, I'll be honest, Barry, I know I know TACO. She's moving in. She's moving in. I know. Well, hopefully not, but we'll see. Yeah. All right. So Jesus Christ, you're going to Mastodon. And then what? This day, this day is not you can't do this. This is not possible. You can't you cannot fill your entire day up like this, dude. Don't tell me I can't do it. OK, next is going to be what? Foo fighters. You can go straight into Foo fighters. But see, here's the thing. Here's my first conflict because Primus is at 12 o'clock. So I'm going to leave Foo fighters and head over to Primus. Mm hmm. And are you familiar? You know Primus, right? Never heard of him. Never heard of him. Well, this this this tour this year is they're they're doing a special cover. They're playing the entire Rush album, Farewell to Kings. And so that's going to be about half their set. From what I've heard, from what I've read, it's the beginning. They start out with that. They'll do the entire album and then they'll do starting in the primus set. That's that's what they've done so far. That's what they've done so far in their tour. It's a 45 minute. It's a 45 minute Geddy Lee. Right. And then Drumsolo. But which half do you care about the most? The Rush set. Oh, man, if only they did that on the second half. Yeah, I wish it was flipped. I wish they were doing Primus first and then Rush. You know that for certain, though? No, not for certain, but they've already they've already began this tour. There's some like footage of, you know, some shows they've already done. And so far, they've started out with Rush and then they get into Primus. So I don't know for sure. With Rush, huh? Yeah, but I got to be there. That's something to ask. So Primus was actually supposed to be on this show and some scheduling things did not work out. I'm going to find out for you that Rush part is the first half of it. Well, it would kind of work out to be the first half because. Ask them if they can switch, Brad, will you? Will you do that? Yeah, I'll make that one. I'll make that call. Well, but I got to I got to cut out and head over to run the jewels at 1245. Taco. No, you're not. You are not at this point going to go 12 and a half hours in a day. You're not going to do it, dude. I know you. You're not. I'm not going to hit everything, but I do want to hit. OK, I do want to hit your quads. I do want to hit Macedon. I do want to hit Primus. Yeah, I know. So so what I'm what we are. We're now figuring out is Orville Pack and dashboard professionals are totally getting scrapped in those three hours. Taking in that. It's not a bad idea. Yeah, the picks are now changed. Game day. OK, game day. I'm guessing I'm guessing there's nothing else left in the night. Or do you know, that's it. A Roman silver moment. You want to bring me. That's it for Friday. OK, that's right. Jesus Christ. You you've exhausted me on this. But I'm I'm I'm left. I might be biting off more than I can chew, but, you know, it's been two and a half years since we've. Yeah, I'm going to go. I'm I'm I'm aiming high. I'm shooting for the moon. Shoot for the moon, say, well, shoot for the moon and say, well, I'm saying, well, yeah. So what time to Saturday start? Well, hang on. We've got two more days to go. I'm going to need a breather. I can't wait for Saturday because Lord knows if your 12 hour day went that bad on Friday, I can't wait to see what you're doing. All right. It's not going to be much better Saturday. He starts with the Sanchez. I can't wait to hear it. Remember the diagram. If the dashboard confessional thing goes well. That's true. This is good. I could take a left turn. Man, that's a great point. All hell could break loose from this from that moment on. We have no idea what his pick might be. You finding him in the bus. I know. And we meet a new we have a new camp nut butter mate who we've never met before. Don't be. Please don't be the first time. Please don't be. All right. I'm starting Saturday. I want to check out Kingfish. Why? Tell me about them. He just Chris, I am a non binary person. I do not say he or she's excuse me. All right. He looks good. I don't even have my kingfish. He can play a little. He can play a little guitar. Can play a little guitar. He's pretty good. Mm hmm. That's not a it's not a must see. But, you know, if there's if there's nothing else going on, if you're up and the new girlfriend wants to go out, I'm sure. This is a great place for you to, you know, shake off the late night uncomfortableness. It's a chance for me to, you know, show my cultured taste. Yeah. Yes. Oh, you want to come to see Kingfish? Because she hasn't figured out how cultured our group is yet. I can't wait to leave, but we got to go. Yeah. Well, my first real must see Saturday. He is terrific is Uncle Acid and the Dead Beats. Oh, I think this is going to take our you know, we had a big loss with King Gizzard, but I think these guys are going to fill that fill that space. They're a King Gizzard for you, huh? For me. Yeah. I don't know them at all. What's the name again? Uncle Acid and the Dead Beats. Would you say this is a must see for you? Yes. I drove home. What was your must see on Friday, by the way, just to back up? What was your absolute must see on Thursday and Friday? Thursday's, you know, I would say it's a well, you know, Briston and Devin. Okay. But Friday, my absolute must see is Turquoise and Primus. Those are the two I, you know, cannot miss. Yeah. My must see for Saturday. First one is Uncle Acid. First ones. Okay. All right. Now, if you had a choice, would this be the one that you would drag camp to see? So I always feel as though like the one, like everybody should be allowed to say, guys, I'm pulling rank. I want you to come to this show because I think everybody here will like it. No, I don't think it's for everybody. Okay. Interesting. But they are, they've got a lot of like heavy classic rock. Definitely influenced by Black Sabbath. And I'm down for any band that has a Melitron. I'm down with anybody that's got Melatonin. Melatonin. Okay. Because I don't have any of that. See, you're a big King Crimson guy, right? That's correct. Yeah. Yeah. And see, I don't know. I mean, I like King Crimson. I don't know that you are, Brad. I mean, that's maybe one of the- But I get it. I get it. Yeah. So that defines tacos. It really does. But just to say, King Crimson spans 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, 2000s. I get it. There's many different incarnations. And Adrian Blue is only one part of that. He was only like 80s, 90s, 2000s. And their musicianship is incredible. I'm with you. They've had incredible musicians. Yeah. I'm with you. I'm just pointing out. That's kind of where you're coming at it. That's my lane. And driving the whole way home, I had a three hour road trip coming back home. I listened to Uncle Acid the entire way. Nice. Okay. All right. I'm writing it down. That's not what I would have expected, but I'm very intrigued. I know. Yeah. I'm writing it down. Now, I'm not going to the show. That's what I'm listening this week. But I'm very intrigued by this. You don't have to go, but I'll definitely be there. I'm very happy about this. Okay. All right. So you've already tied yourself down to 415. Now what? That's right. Then I will join John Baptiste in progress because he's 445 to 545. I think John Baptiste is absolutely so much fun. He's very much embodies what Bonner is. He's very New Orleans. I think that's a really good point, Taco. And I don't think that I actually thought about it like that. John Baptiste is Bonneroo. I mean, if you found somebody that was a really, really great human encompass, like the one human encompasses what Bonneroo is supposed to be, boy, John Baptiste could be the mayor of Bonneroo this year. I agree. Yeah. I think that's going to be a fun show. I can't wait to see it. Well, that's the thing. Like, you know, it's going to be a fun show. You don't really need the songs. No, no, but I just know I like him. I just know I like watching him. Freedom is a great song. I did play Freedom the other day. That is a great song. Yeah, it's a great song. But other than that, you just know it's going to be good. I just know it's going to be good. It's going to be fun. It's going to be upbeat. It's going to be positive. Very. So that's the show that should have been on. Every year we talk about this. Every year we say how much we miss that Sunday morning church service on the West stage. That should have been Sunday. That should have been Sunday. Yeah, I wish I wish they'd put John Baptiste on Sunday because. Yeah. You know, they've always had that sort of New Orleans with Alan Toussaint and Dr. John. Go away. Superfly connection, obviously. Yeah. Right. I mean, the word Bonnaroo means a good time and it's a Cajun New Orleans. And it was a Dr. John album. Yep. Yeah, exactly. So I'm going to have a Bonnaroo. I hope you all are there at John Baptiste with me. I think that's going to be fun. I will be right there with you on John Baptiste. There is not a, you know, I'm not going to bore you with this, but there is not a show I want to see more on Saturday other than Lizzo, than John Baptiste. Excellent. Good point. Excellent. Yeah. And then next for me is Phoebe Bridgers. Yeah. I mean, I'm in love. Yeah. Oh, me too. I love Phoebe Bridgers. I think that there's, oh, go ahead. I'm sorry. It's your time. Why am I trying to speak? It's your time. I listened to Phoebe's cover of Fake Plastic Trees by Radiohead. Oh, yeah. Brought me to tears. Stop it. Really? Serious. Yeah. It was that. I was like, man. So I hope she plays that. I really don't know a lot of Phoebe's songs, but I've listened to some covers and she just put out a cover of Nothing Else Matters. And I know Miley did that too. Yeah. She did that. She did that part of like the Metallica album that- Yes. Barry, do you know anything about this Metallica album they put out? That's nothing but covers. Yes. So there's like four artists that did the same song. Right. It's actually kind of brilliant. And I'm not even a Metallica fan, but I really like some of these songs that were done. Yeah. Same Phoebe. The ones I've heard are good. They're really, really creative and fun. And what they did was like they didn't have like an A artist to do a song. They did four artists to do a song. So they could run the gambit of the different types of styles that could be done. It was brilliant. Absolutely brilliant. Yeah. It was. Yeah. I was really impressed. So yeah, I want to be there for Phoebe. And then, you know, I guess we'll go to Tame. Well, you got a lot of break there. That's a 2.15 break, huh? I engineered a break right there. Yeah. Okay. Going from Phoebe to Tame, I don't really have anything else. Not worried about Jason Isbell, huh? I could be talked into Jason Isbell. Yeah. I got no problem with that. You're not going to be talked into Jason Isbell. Pine Grove? No Pine Grove. I've heard of Pine Grove. That's probably where it stops. I'll talk to Pine. I'll talk about Pine Grove in my own day. So, so far, all the way through, and I'm guessing your night is going to go from Tame and Apollo to Lizzo to My Morning Jack to Goose, but at no point have you gotten to the other stage or the Who stage yet? No, I have not. Okay. Yeah, I don't have any. Have you gone to Applausa yet? Have you gone outside to GA? The beer exchange on Friday. Okay. And then the robust thing on Wednesday. And the robust thing on Wednesday. Okay. But other than that, no, I don't have any plazas planned. Barry, are you okay? I'm just sitting here thinking how this changes. This changes your day because if we are, we're going to go out into those and you're going to go with us. Yeah. I'm going to guess. I definitely want to go, but I don't, I don't have anything. Wait, why are we going on Saturday? We're probably going to go every day, I would think, because there's happening. My point is it just, it's going to be a bunch of long days is all. Yeah. There's some secret shows. I think that you can save yourself for. I don't know, when's the one in the woods? I'm okay with that. Like I said, yeah, there's some, I got some blind spots. I don't, you know, I haven't checked out everything. I could be talked into some of that. All right. So then you go to tame at 8 45. I love this. Yeah. But also there's a big conflict because incubus is playing. What's the conflict? Incubus and tame. Oh, it depends on if my dashboard girlfriend wants to go to see incubus. And this girl, that is amazing. He could not be more in incubus. She's like, I love dashboard and mastodon and incubus. And my chemical romance is on this fucking lineup. You would be the biggest MCR fan on the planet. Yes. That's right. Girl is so, I forgot all about this girl. I have a whole theoretical day. She has slept all day. By the way. And she's waking up to go with you to incubus. That is so powerful. Killer. And now I'm wondering if there's anybody that she forgot on Friday. You know, she's into Nellie. She will get into Nellie. So you're going to screw up the Primus thing. You've got to go see Nellie on Friday. I might have to break up. I would love to see Nellie. Here's the question, though. Is Nellie still doing the entire country grammar album? Because it doesn't say that. It's a good point because when we first got that lineup in 2019, 2018, 2017, when do we get this lineup again? 2004. You got it. And it said that we got Nellie country grammar. Is he still doing country grammar? Another one that was supposed to be on the show and scheduling got messed up. Now it just says Nellie. Yeah. But what else is he going to do? He's got a wonderful group of songs on his. All I can call it is his country album. He picked up the banjo, learned the banjo, picked up a flute, did some flute flouting. He's a flautist. He's a flautist. Very accomplished musician. Yes, very detailed. All right. If you say so. Moving on. Jesus, Barry is fucking bored. I don't want to talk about Nellie and the flutes. Well, speaking of flutes, Lizzo, we got to see Lizzo. She's playing unopposed. So everybody's going to be at that Lizzo show. She's the Saturday night unopposed. Yeah. Nice. Yeah. OK. Wow. And I do have a little regret because I remember what year was it? 2018 maybe. My buddy Brad is like, hey, Lizzo's doing this like exclusive show in Chattanooga. I can get you tickets. Me too. And what did I say? Yeah. Actually, I have a more bitter reason. No, I have a more hateful, bitter reason for not being there that I won't get into. And what was it in Chattanooga? Brad had Lizzo in Chattanooga by herself with how many people? Like 10. I don't know because I didn't go. I don't know what kind of. Yeah, I didn't go. That's the point. And so the only the only promo free show she did in the country was for this random radio station in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Yeah. Yeah. And she did. I missed it by 10 minutes. She did. I missed by 10 minutes. Yeah. You know why? I know her name. I don't know. I don't know. Do you know her name? Does she like dashboard? Was her name Kelly Porter? No. No. Sorry. No. Oh, I know who you're talking about. I know who you're talking about. Say no more. Say no more. Say no more. Say no more. Say no more. Anyways, I miss I miss I miss the exclusive Lizzo show, so I've got some regrets there, but I do want to see Lizzo at Bonner. All right. Here's a question. Are you going to try where where where will you see a show like that? Are you going to try to get up front or you go to the back? I mean, you can say the same question about his Foo Fighters show because he is tied up until every minute up until the Foo Fighters show. Yeah, I'm just going to be hanging out in the back. You know? Yeah. Oh, you're willing to go back in the back. Yeah, I don't have to be. He doesn't care about being way back there, does he? Barry, he is totally OK. OK, me too. Good for you. All right. It sounds great anyway. Yeah. Saturday night. Saturday night. I want to go. I do want to go see some my morning jacket. I know nothing about my morning jacket, but I know Barry's a big fan. I want to I want to I want to experience it with Barry. Barry, do you want to experience my morning jacket with a Lord Taco that's about 25 PBRs in? Yes. Yes, actually. Only 25. Thinking about it. I mean, that's a light day. You're right. You're right. Yeah. Yeah, I do want to kind of I do want to go see some loop daddy. This is the problem for me. I have got a I have I got turned on to my morning jacket by Barry Courter, and I have no problem with them. I used to not be a fan, and then I became a big fan because of B.C. But man, big cat, I love you. I got I really want to see the loop daddy show, even if it's an hour, even if I go over there for 20 minutes and then I'm really, really, really into this goose. See, I really want to see this goose. I want to spend some time there. And I feel like I hate to take over this because you're going to hear this from me in two weeks, but I kind of feel like I'll see another my morning jacket show. I have a feeling at some point now there are these moments like if you start thinking about my morning jacket and what they're going to bring to the Bonnaroo stage, it probably will be the upper echelon of show you'll ever see of my morning jacket. If you're a jacket fan, this is going to be the best show they've ever put on. This is going to be the one if there's a possibility for somebody to show up. This is the one. This is going to be the best set list. This is going to be the best performance. There's just no possible way. I think that in this moment, Jacket says themselves, you know what, we'll give you the Charlotte performance on this one. I've said since Oh, wait, I think. Yeah, wait was when I first saw him. I didn't I had no idea who they were. They are the perfect Bonnaroo band. There's not a better Bonnaroo band. I don't I mean, there are a lot of very, very good ones. Warren Haynes. I don't disagree at all. I don't disagree. Yeah, they are perfect. Bonnaroo band. Anything else on Saturday for them to get three hours is amazing. So that's about it for Saturday. OK, I do want to see Luke Danny. I want to see Goose. Yeah, I know you are. You are. You are busting it on Friday and Saturday. I don't know how you live on Sunday, but how in the hell are you waking up on Sunday? And where are you going on Sunday? Sunday's light. I will. I will say thank God. Sleep till three. Yeah, I can sleep till three. Wake up. Get ready. Go see Britney Howard. My man. Yeah, yeah. And you know, kind of this because I have heard Britney Howard. She's great. But kind of the same reason with Barry in my morning jacket. Like I know, you know, he's a super fan. I know you're a super fan. I want to I want to see Britney Howard with you. Yeah, I mean, I love that album so much. I just can't stop saying how much I love this album. I've heard so many people talk to me like, yeah, but I don't really hear a hit. Oh, fuck off. I you know, this this idea of like not understanding how beautiful, incredible art is is is created without hearing a hook all the time. I agree. And same is a true artist. Yeah, that she's great. Just so seeing her perform. Yeah. And in the last time I saw this show, the last thing that I saw before quarantine was Britney Howard and the show had just started like the the the the local. I'm sorry. The live show for her solo album had just started. They played the whole album in its entirety before it was released. That to me was good. But man, do I want to see how that has progressed. I'm dying to see how that's gotten better because what all I remember from the Alabama Shakes is every show that I saw just kept getting better and better and bigger and bigger and better and better. And she started owning the space so much more. Something something's going on with her. And and I want to be on the front end of it, I guess. Yeah. Yeah. I want to be there with you. I want to see it. I want to see Britney Howard. And I know Julian Baker is kind of a conflict to there. I don't want to talk about it. OK, we'll just move on. But I also really want to check out Oliver Tree. I'm so intrigued by Oliver Tree. Wow. How about that? Never in a million years would I have expected you say Oliver Tree. I can't figure out if he's like the world's biggest troll. I feel like he, you know, trolls his audience so much. You never know what he's going to do. He's he's announced he's leaving the music industry for good. You know, he's doing all these crazy stunts. He's actually like a really good scooter rider. He's well, that seems so. I mean, that's a settling point, Barry. Barry's there. He's got he's got he's got Plan B. He's got a plan. He's got a plan B. He didn't start out as a as a musician. He started out as a like a world class scooter champion. Barry, I think we found tacos first ever first one of the weekend. We had to get to Sunday to get to. I'm either there for 15 minutes or an hour. A walk by. Yeah, I got to I got to go walk by and see what Oliver Tree is all about. I might be intrigued and stay for the whole thing. All right. He might just get on stage and just, you know, give everybody a middle. I got to look him up. I don't know what he's going to do. Yeah, he's weird as hell. He is weird. I got to look. I'm not just to see if Scooter Thing is on his resume. Scooter Thing. Scooter Thing. If this whole if this whole music thing doesn't work out, I'm going to go pursue the scooter thing. He actually is like a competitive. I believe you. How is anyone a competitive scooter rider? Exactly. I took this train to the Grand Canyon. I I got to see what this is about. I got to see what he's going to do. There's no telling what he's going to do on stage. I'm just glad he's got a plan for his life. He makes some really bizarre life choices. I can't even make some very bizarre life choices. Not as bizarre as Oliver Tree. But it's one of those things. Please tell me your festival's over now. Please tell me this is the last show you're seeing because how is your you're not going to survive this. This is too much. Well, I'll say this about Oliver Tree. This could be he could be the next Andy Kaufman because you really can't tell. Is this an act? Is this some type of performance? Is this some type of troll? You can't tell what he's doing. OK, I'm fascinated. Absolutely fascinated. That's what I kind of thought that of Little Dickie. And I can tell you that show was horrible. I was very disappointed in Little Dickie. Yes. Little Dickie. Little Dickie. Oh, hey, everybody. I'm sorry. Hey, what are we doing right now? Are we losing our minds? What are we doing? OK, are we taking a break? No, we're not. We're not. I think Hillary's had enough. She's had enough. She's out. She's she doesn't want to hear about all the tricks. She's even tired of your day. She's tired. Yeah, she's tired of it. Everybody needs to get the fuck out. All right. Well, the last thing on my list, the absolute last thing is I got to go check out Little Baby and see if it's a baby. I have to know, is this a baby? Not official, not official. I will tell you definitively if this is a baby or not. Well done. That will be the end of the close of Bonnaroo. That's the close of my taco. When taco lets everyone know if Little Baby is in fact a baby. We can finally all go home once I tell you if this is a baby or not, but nobody leaves until then. If I have never wanted something more than if we have any poll, any poll whatsoever, any sort of muscle flex, Barry, anything with anyone. Could we please, God, have somebody put on that big screen? Yes. Yes. This is a baby. This is a baby. I'm begging anyone. Can we? The crown jewel of if two things that taco wants in his life is acceptance from PBR, he's got it. He's the 69th follower of PBR. That's right. And then two, be the end all be all of the baby community. The official baby community. Speaking of babies, don't you think Bonnaroo dodged a bullet here with their, they switched up from DaBaby to Little Baby. Yeah. In hindsight, that was a really good move. Either way. I still wonder if it's a baby or not. Yes. I still. They couldn't just do away with the baby demographic. They had to have a baby. We gotta find out if it's a baby. And I'm going to find out. I will get to the bottom of this. Who is the person that runs the screens? Who's the guy that does that? Find him. We can work on it. And I will spend every damn minute, day, dollar of my life to get just on the screen once. Please make this happen. It's a baby. It's a baby. It's a baby. It's a baby. And it'll be me pointing. I'll be like, just point. It's a baby. Yep. Right there. It's a baby. Right there. That would be hilarious. That would be the greatest finale of a ball of all time. I would die so peacefully. Taco made it. Taco. All right. Taco. That's it. That's my Bonnaroo. That's my whole. Good tech, man. That's my whole life. I'm an exhausted dude. I'm exhausted. Too much. Yeah. I think my list next week. Am I going to make it to all these? No, I'm not going to make it to every single one of these. Yeah, my list is going to look like Brian Stone. It's going to be like one Joe. I'm never leaving camp. I love this idea that Taco just. 35 fans. He wants to see. He'll see three. Yeah. Yeah. Watch how many shows I end up at. It's going to be. The one that he absolutely will do is little baby. We'll go to little baby. Yeah. His name shows up on the big screen. This is a baby. That's a baby. That is a little baby. That is a little baby. What the entire weekend is all based on. Is this a baby? That's what it's all leading up to. Because why Taco? Your two biggest skills are. I can identify if something is a baby or not. Yes, you can. And what's my other skill? I don't remember. I think just drinking baby. You are probably. Yeah. Well, if that's a skill, then. And you can find your way home. I can always find my way home. I'm like a little bit. Let's go like a little homing pigeon. I can get to bed. Barry. I don't know if I can make it. Man, I can't keep up with. Yeah, I promise you. I promise you my schedule will not be this involved. I told you you'd be surprised. Should I? I should block off. Doesn't leave camp. Doesn't leave camp. Two o'clock to three o'clock. Doesn't have a dashboard mom. Oh, everything. I'm going to have to leave. Everything's hinging right there. Everything. Everything depends on that dashboard show. So it's a great point, man. That entire weekend of yours all depends on if you meet a dad. That really that really dictates how the rest of my man goes. Yeah. See what happens next week. What happens is I'm exhausted. What happens if dashboard mom doesn't show but mastodon mom. Master mom. Master. I don't know if I'm into master mom. Let me tell you about master mom. She is going to chain you up. You're not leaving the bus. I don't know if I'm into master mom. Master mom is not letting you leave for the rest of the pack. You might not leave Bonnaroo at all. Ever. You're gone. I may just live there. Yeah. I think I just got the bus. Well, Barry, I think I got nothing left. I am exhausted. I'm pretty exhausted. Are you worn out? I mean, I feel like I need to pack up camp and it's not even out yet. Pack up my own goods and say, hey, no surf. I'd yell at the dog. Sorry. Oh, right. Well, I did just come off a camping trip. So I'm a little amped up. I'm a little hype to get out to the farm. Pretty hype. It always looks good at this point. When you get the schedule, it always looks good at this point. You're going to do all of it. Yeah, I get it. Aim high. I can't wait to see Grand Ole Opry. I'm going to run from this side to that side. Let me tell you straight up. I can knock off about 30% of your schedule just by putting Grand Ole Opry off the list. Yeah, you're probably right. Get rid of it now. Maybe. Amethyst is really good. But like you said, she's really good. She's going to be at Moon River. I can see her at Moon River. So that's a week later. I don't deny that. She's probably really good, but she'll find herself on another stage at some point. I agree. You know, she's going to be at Moon River a week later. By the way, you didn't even mention the super jam with Sylvanesso. No, I have no idea. I can promise you she's going to be at that. OK. All right. Like I said, I've got huge blind spots. There's big parts of the schedule I've just not even considered. So I'm open for suggestions. I can be dragged to things. All right. Anything else before we go? Next week is Barry. Barry, you're up. And at some point we're going to get Jeff Clayar in here to talk about. Yeah, I hope to know tomorrow or Tuesday. Mm hmm. Yeah, we got lots of questions for him. Barry, you ready to hear picks? Whatever else. Yep, I'll be ready next week. I know you will. It'll be a lot quicker. Can Jeff get us on the screen? Map for the baby for Little Baby. I'm working on it. I'm working on it. Also, also, taco. What I love about this show and love about this episode is that this is the latest that Barry has been up for. We kept Barry ever since modern. Outside of modern, this is the latest Barry has been up. I'm sorry, Barry. I'm pre-gaming. This is my pre-gaming. Sorry the list was so long. Yeah. All right. Today I stay up till seven. Next tomorrow night at eight. And then in three days. And then in three weeks, I'll be ready for 10 o'clock. Do you guys do any sort of like body workout for Montero? Because I feel as though I can like lift weights and like, you know, I have been. Walks and stuff and body like back stretches. Absolutely. I'm in peak physical shape. And along those lines, I pointed out to a couple of our people with the festival. Russell. Uh, what did he say? He's in peak shape. Is that what he said? I'm a peak. No, it's it's. It's let me say that six. Let's see it. Yes. My man. There you go. Barry, I'm sorry. I was just going to say for whatever it's worth, it's still very, very hot, but it's getting it stays darker till about seven, seven fifteen in the morning. That's right. It gets darker earlier. So it's a little bit different than what some folks are used to. I was I was incorrect. I said the point of fact, the time change will happen. The time change happens in November. I was wrong about that, but we do get an extra hour of nighttime because the sunsets earlier because we're in September. It's going to make things a lot cooler. I mean, if the day only starts at three and the sun starts going down at six thirty, I mean, the day and it used to come up to manage and it used to come up and hit your ten at six fifteen. Now it's about seven fifty. That's right. You're going to get a little extra. You're going to get a little extra sleep in time. Man, that is really good point. It's going to be nice. Yeah, I love that. All right. Yeah, I feel hotter than devil. That was going to be hot as balls. Yeah, guys, I'm glad that we made this one a quick one. All right. All right, Lord Taco great picks this week. Barry Carter can't wait for next week. Barry's picks next week and maybe Jeff Quayor. I'm Brad. That's Barry. It's Lord Taco. Talk to you next week with a podcast. Love you. Bye bye.
