In our final installment of Virtual Camp Nutbutter, Brad, Barry, and Russ are joined by some of our long-time campmates: Hillary, Nicky T, Bryan Stone, Dinson, and Chrissy! We reminisce about Bonnaroos past and imagine what this past weekend would have been like, had we all been together for this year's festival.
Journey through the stories that define the artists playing. Who are they? What are they? What will you see the what? Which bands this year that matter with Brad Steiner and Barry Courter a podcast for Bonarovians by Bonarovians on the greatest Bonaroo weekend of all time. So beautiful, the picturesque scenery, the wonderful weather, the amazing shows. Let's go around the horn. Larry Larry quarter, Lord Taco, Barry Courter, your favorite show of the weekend. Let's hear it. Mine was Seeds because it's the only band that played. Okay. I don't know where you guys were, but I was basically at Bonaroo this weekend. Yeah, we'll get to that in a second. Barry Courter, your favorite band of the weekend. My morning jacket. Oh yeah, we were grilling last night. I turned the open the windows, turned it up. Me and me and Kelly were into it and for her to be into it. It was a good day. She is not into my morning jacket either. I've told that story, man. I told it again today. It's you know, yeah, they first note and how long is this show gonna last? Damn day it's gonna last it lasts till it's over. So we've compiled a few shows over the weekend to wet your Bonaroo palette in honor of a Bonaroo weekend, just doing some shotgun virtual camp nut butter shows. And we thought that we would join this episode with a fresh Bloody Mary because at Camp Nut Butter we start the day every day with Bloody Mary is made by our own Nick Turner. There you go. There's the cups that I made everybody and then on the front is your cartoon head, right? Show the cartoon head. There you go. And so everybody at camp has a giant cartoon head on the stick that is also a sticker that's on our camp nut butter cups, which is normally filled with Bloody Mary's in the morning and then by mid afternoon it's what Barry Courter? What's your drink? I'm a bourbon guy. I'm a George. Even in the heat? You know what I drink. I wake up and I have a a a a Bush can of Bush beer, kind of get the throat cleared. Then we have the bloody. The cannabis beans has never. Bush beer has never wanted a ribbon. That's right. There's only one that won a blue ribbon and it is the Paps blue ribbon. Let me guess what taco drinks when he wakes up. You doing a Bloody Mary? No, I had a mimosa. Really? Wow. You're such a cultured man. Yeah. I made the most is drink the whole bottle. All right, so we're going to hopefully be joined by today. Some surprise guests who may or may not know that they're on a show. Some of our campmates, they pop in, they pop in. If they don't, they don't. Either way, we're going to do some bloody marrying and chat about a lovely Bonnaroo weekend, which of course the only person who really got to do anything for Bonnaroo was Lord Taco. What did you do this weekend? Let's let's hear the whole story. So it wasn't Montero, but I was in a field in Tennessee with live music, beer, food, people. I had a human experience. I can't believe it. I had a human experience. I guess it's public now, but there was kind of a low key weekend plan and it was put on by the Roobus people, the Roof Fitness people, because Lindsay owns the property out there. And so it was maybe 50 people. Well, why was it low key? Why didn't they? Why did they publish it? Well, you know, it's Lindsay's private land. I don't think he wants it trashed. No, come on. Bonnaroo lets it happen. That's true. I would trash it. Yeah, I have a feeling this will continue. There'll be other, you know, if September doesn't happen, probably this will happen. You're telling me the clean vibes people are not on site to pick up every piece of trash that you threw in the ground. We were all clean vibes people this weekend. We all we all respected the farm. We kept everything clean and we stayed true. So how many how many actual shows did they put on? Where do these bands come from? Who were they? So Seeds is a band from Huntsville that Roobus has known for a little while. So they were happy to come out and perform live because they've been sitting at home just like everyone else. And then after that, they had a DJ that come up and did some stuff. So we had kind of an EDM show afterwards. Weird. It was weird. And you know, after dark, you look around and people are, you know, high fiving and saying happy Roob. You know, in my mind, I went to Bonnaroo. Yeah, that's that's the you get lost. Did you get lost? I might have gotten lost. I definitely lost some time Friday night. There's a there's a section where I don't remember much of what was going on. What were these things that you were doing called high fives? Does that require touching another human being touching or something? We did some touching. Oh, that's but there was lots of hand washing. There was hand sanitizer. You know, when you when you say, let me ask you this. When you went to camp and then you woke up in the morning, did you have a hotel to go back to to freshen up? No, no, but this is how your camping is much different than mine. There was there was no couch. There was no carpet. What? What about a no carpet vacuum? Yeah. How did you even function without carpeting in the can? Like, how do you walk around with bare feet if you don't have carpet? I still made it through. I didn't bring the marquee or anything. I don't know how you survived this. You took your life in your own hands. Really, Russ, when you think about it, you took your life in your own hands. So that was good. So I'm glad people were out there with the robust folk. Probably about 50 total. Let's see. There was and you know, there was a lot of people that we know. The robust people, the room fitness people, Lindsey, Celia. I think she's also with routine clan. David, David Bruce, the I am Bonnaroo photographer. He did 996 miles from New York to come down to this. Oh, my God. Yeah, I think what I think really what we want to do, Brad, is have him. We probably ought to do a separate show because he's got pictures and some video and all this. But we did a mini show there. Even before you got on, he was telling me that he had that he drove from New York for this thing. Yeah. And that's pretty cool. And he took a bunch of pictures and so he'll be posting those. That's really impressive. I can't get anybody that I know to drive from Chattanooga to New Orleans. I'm working on it. I wasn't going to drive from here to there. That's what I told him. I've been working on the bus to for some long trips. So that's in the works, but that's that's really impressive that they pulled all that together. Yeah. Our buddy, our buddy Kyle, the Bonaroovian was there. Yeah, he lives in Murfreesboro. So that wasn't too far for him. So you know, I got to hang out with the same people that we would have hung out with. Yeah. Well, good. That's a that's a lot of fun. I didn't do any of those things, but I did try to eat pizza. Nailed it. I had I had crawfish nailed it. That's about it. That's as close to my what are you possibly you're invisible. Sometimes your hand just disappears. Barry Courter. What are you trying to open right now? If you're about to open some pimento cheese, you son of a bitch, you son of a bitch. There's nothing that I love more than than mama quarters. This was her idea to I told her what we were doing. She's like, I need to make some pimento cheese. Yeah. Yeah. So the reason why I wake up every morning and eat that pimento cheese sandwich and here's the thing about the pimento cheese. It lasts only about till Friday morning and then it's done. You're not getting very long. Oh, I joined by a new participant. Who is this? Hello. Oh, hello. We don't know you. I love it. Have we met before sitting on our back porch to look at that sunning as if you're actually at Bonnaroo. My bloody. Oh, look at weird how our bloody Marys look very similar to each other. So Hillary, part of our campsite, we actually go way back in marriage. What was your favorite Bonnaroo memory this weekend? That was your Bonnaroo experience. I mean, I guess it was just sitting on the porch. Yeah. Yeah. Did a lot of porching. So last night, last night we hung out with the neighbor and the neighbor and her friends were going around the table and they were going doing their hall pass conversation. So it was, hey, who's your hall pass? You know, who's the celebrity that you get a free pass to and half the table literally said just random people they follow on Instagram, you know, it's like a celebrity. It's just I follow this guy named Greg. He's really hot. It's like, that's not how this is supposed to work. Like a non celebrity real human being screw up your life. It's like a random, random thing. Oh, there's Nikki T. My heart, my heart, my heart just stopped. Hello, Nick. We have a Bloody Mary not made by Nick Turner. What are you drinking? He's got his cup. Just straight tequila. Okay. Okay. Are you mixing right there on the porch? You know how I do it. I don't know how you do it. Oh, I don't know how I got to be on the ready. Okay. So I've run out. Oh, good. See, this is what Nick's Nick is the best Bloody Mary person on the planet. And the reason why I love his Bloody Mary is the secret ingredient. What's the secret ingredient, Nick? I don't know. Zing Zang. No, no. It's not Zing Zang. Very secret. Horse radish. Horse radish. I don't think that's a secret. I'm pretty sure that's like a... Well, it's not anymore. Yeah, you just gave away the secret. I think the secret is attitude because we have to wake him up and get him out of his damn bed to fix the Bloody Marys is what it is. How burnout do you think you would have been Saturday morning, man? I think the secret ingredient is a hatred for all the bullshit praise you all give me for these Bloody Marys. So when I make them, they're full of hate. And that's why they taste so delicious. It was your idea. The whole reason we have a Bloody Mary bar is because of you. Yeah. It's a great idea. I didn't want to be the maker of Bloody Mary. But they're so good. You bring all the equipment. We don't want to dig through your equipment. Was it last year we had to roust him out? We had to wake him up. He's like, they're just Bloody Marys. Fix it. Then he literally went right back to bed. Nick, get up. Peppered cheese are not equipment. They're peppers. Peppered cheese are not equipment, but it's your gear. We can't start playing your gear. You know the magical concoction to make your song sing into our glass. It's literally the same shit you all would put in the Bloody Mary if you made it yourself. If you would have, yesterday, if you would have, how burnout do you think you would have been on Saturday after Friday? What was Friday night? What would have been Friday night? Are you kidding? It's only the greatest festival day of all time. I know that this year I probably would have gotten up there Friday, so I probably wouldn't have made it very late Friday night. I would have been dead. Wow. That is so sad. That's the saddest thing you've ever said. Lame. Can you read this? Yeah, can you read that? That's just Friday. Miley Tulle, Glass Animals, Run the Jewels, 1975, Megan Thee Stallion, Primus, Brittany Howard. What do you miss in here? I guess I would have gone to a few of those. The one that I missed the most? I tell you one that I would have skipped out of that. Don't even say it. I swear to God. I hope your swing breaks. I hope it tumbles onto the ground. I know you're going to... Don't even do it, dude. I just don't understand how you could be so hyped about that show. Don't say it. I know you're trying to ignore it. You're doing your Stevie Wonder routine right now where you put the sunglasses on and you act like nobody's listening, but you're just saying the secret of reaction out of me. You're just trying to fire me up. That's all you're doing. I'm not trying to fire you up, man. That would have been a low point of the weekend. Okay. Cut him off. How is it Nick can both swing and sway at the same time? It's a look. It sure is a look. Now, the one that I'm most sad about for Saturday is- Where's Chrissy? Hey, there's Chrissy. Hey, Chrissy. Hello, everyone. Hello. Nice to see you. This is about the time Chrissy would have actually showed up at camp. Yeah, that's right. Yeah. She had been there all weekend, but she would have showed up at camp just now. Yes. All right. And by the way, she had not gone to bed yet. There is no- Thank you. Thank you. That was my question for Nick to talk about last year. Nick, do you even remember Saturday with Chrissy? Was it Nick or- Yeah. We walked to Weir in the Woods. It was miserable. Wait. How is it miserable to walk to Weir in the Woods? It was too far, man. It was so far. We really fucked up. That was bad. This is the charmed life. Don't start doing the charmed life thing because you had to walk to Weir in the Woods. It was honestly a far walk. It was much further than I anticipated. On the map, it looked like it was right there. Yeah, because you didn't get carted there. The one time you left your backstage haven, you didn't get a cart and you got upset. I didn't get upset. It was just a long walk. We were tired. Man, it definitely blew us both out. Yeah. You say that and then Chrissy came home, got a bite to eat and went out like what? Three more times? Yeah. Well, I don't know. Chrissy, Brad had a good question for everybody. What was last year like? What's your favorite memory? Oh, last year? Gosh, they all run together sometimes, don't they? My question was actually, what was your favorite memory of this year? Because this weekend has been so action packed and so exciting. Last year was definitely the chickpea puffs that were literally eating cardboard. It was garbage. It was just garbage. I loved my chickpea puffs. Those are terrible, man. Holy awful. You loved them. It was like hydrated cardboard. It was super hydrated cardboard. It was not hydrated. It was like someone had pumped it. Dehydrated cardboard. My apologies. Dehydrated cardboard. Chrissy, what have you been doing all year? How's your year been? It's been interesting. This pandemic has really made it into... How do you do all year with this pandemic? I feel like it's before Corona and after Corona. The thing that I love about you is that you come to Bonnaroo every year and then you really experience Bonnaroo and then you go and be a professional, which none of us can figure out how to do. Last year you left camp with dreadlocks and you had to do what the next day? Go to court. Brad, those were blue cornrows. Yeah, dye colored. Dye colored dreadlocks. With eyelash glue and rhinestones and the works. Yeah. Then the next day was the suit and he was pre-entry. What were you being arraigned on in court? Yeah, not me. You know I've done a hearing from Bonnaroo, right? Do you remember that? Did you really? No. Yep. Yep. Walking into Centaroo with Mike and Jensen doing a telephone here. What did you do? I don't understand. How does that work? I understand phone work. I knew that was going. Don't even say it. I know how phone works. Is this like a conference call? Do they even wonder where you are? They didn't ask. No, I said I was out of the office. Do you remember what you were walking to see? Centaroo, just Friday. Yeah, shopping. Just got there doing one last thing before full Bonnaroo. Hey, Nick, do you have anything that actually has Bonnaroo on it? Do you own any piece of shirt, poster, hat? I think I have a bandana. Yeah, that's it. I have nothing that has Bonnaroo's name on it. Hilary, do you have anything? Do we even have anything that has Bonnaroo on it? How have we gone for 15 years and we don't have anything that has their brand on it? I mean, I think we have some swag. We've got a lot of Chastire and Skillet. That's it. Yeah, we got the skillets. This one? Yeah. This skillet here? We put that thing to good use. We use it often. I used it this weekend. Yeah. Lord Taku went to his own Bonnaroo. Christy, who were you most excited to see this year? I've blocked out who was playing this year. That's actually the best move, honestly. That really was a smart move. Oh, man. Yeah. Nick, you don't even care, do you? You didn't even care about the lineup. I called Nick the day after, I was like, dude, this lineup is incredible. He's like, I don't care. This is not true. He goes, I don't care. This is not true. Tame Impala, today would have been my day. It would have been a hard one because Sundays is when the guilt sets in. It's hard to have the greatest time on Sunday, but I think I could have cut loose today for some tame. What is guilt? Yeah. What are you feeling guilty about? Nick, what have you done that we don't know about? Are there bodies somewhere? Yeah. There's a couple of murders over the weekend. That's why he doesn't want to go to Weir in the Woods because that's where he buried them all. What are you doing? Guilt? Yeah. It's just like, I'm out here having a good time and carefree. And then there's all the stuff happening at home every year. It's always... So right after Nick, I don't know if I ever told you guys a story, but right after Nick had the baby, he came to Bonnaroo and he woke up Friday morning or maybe a Saturday morning and he looked at me and he said... No, no, no, no. I took a nap in the hammock for like six hours. Yeah. It was like a five hour nap. And he wakes up and he walks over. He's like, don't tell anyone I ever did that. Don't tell my wife. If she finds out that I took a five hour nap, I'm done. That's what I'm saying. I didn't even know you were Catholic, Nick. I mean, when did this guilt thing... It's not Catholic guilt. It's Bonnaroo guilt, man. Did you say Nick had the baby? Yeah. Yeah. The baby. The baby. Yeah. The baby. Oh, so do you have to call home and just act like how hot it is and how miserable it is and just... Oh no. I'm having the greatest time. Sorry about you, but... Yeah, but that still doesn't answer the guilt. Why in the world do you feel guilt about that? I don't see why this is... I mean, for you, Brad, I get it why it's hard concept to grasp, but for everyone else, why is this so difficult? I'm out there having a great time all weekend. My wife's at home with a kid trying to be entertaining with a four or five year old. All right, I'll give you this. I was thinking about this earlier. For the first 10 years of the 15, I used to leave on Sunday morning. It was to come home and to be with my wife. That's what I'm saying. It finally occurred to me this morning. I'm like, my wife's smoking hot. I get to go home and sit in a pool all day long. Yeah, look, shake your head. Here it goes. That's why. Here it goes. That's why. I know. I'm going home to spend the rest of the day in the pool with my wife. For the last three or four years, I've stayed till Monday. Yes. You know why? Because you finally realized that hanging out at Bonnevue was more fun than going back to the pool. By the way- She's still going to be smoking hot on Monday. Yeah. By the way, you get to do this with me. You get to break down camp with me. That's so exciting. Yeah, that's what it is. That's what it is. Brad's a bad influence. That's why. Brad's an instigator. No, it's because there are so many great shows on Sunday night. I miss that Tom Petty thing. Yep. Look at it. I see Chrissy shaking her head. He's like, you know, yep, yep. Sunday's that day where you're like, I'm going to take it so easy today. Then by Sunday night, you're like, I'm just as lit as I would have been any other night of the festival. Yeah. Yeah. That would have been yesterday for me. You didn't follow the lineup, but Friday was damn near the greatest festival lineup in the history of mankind. Then Saturday was pretty light. I thought that yesterday, literally Saturday, was 75 degrees the high. It was 10 mile an hour winds. It would have been the greatest Chrissy day of all time. Being able to float around, go wherever with whoever to see whatever, I would just... Who cares? At the end of the night, as long as I get to Lizzo by the end of the night, I'm done. I'll be fine. Boy, what a perfect, perfect day that would have been. It would have been that perfect Nick thing too. We're like, I'm going to take it easy, but turns out I'm totally shit hammered and I feel terrible Sunday morning. How did this happen? That weather was so cool, wasn't it? I don't want to talk about it. I don't want to talk about it. I do. Do you? Yeah, because I camped in and it was fantastic. Yeah, last year was amazing. Man. I'm talking about this weekend was amazing. The weather was perfect. Right now is perfect. Right now it's perfect. Yeah. I will say, so that's the thing about the weather is like you don't... I can remember years where I didn't really care about it being so hot until literally right now. Sunday midday is when I start saying like, I don't care anymore. I want to go home. It's too hot. I don't know if I can make five more hours before the sun sets. We've missed it. Like you said, Barry, so many shows on Sunday night because we just bailed. The last one that we stayed for that we suffered through was Snoop. We've got to do it. Then we just kept going home until you guys forced me to start saying on Sunday nights. I'm so glad we did because Monday morning is such an easier pack up than a Sunday. Last year... I'm sitting here looking at this group and part of what I love, especially Chrissy, is all of us, it's like... Doesn't matter if it's one in the afternoon or one in the morning, I could pick either one of you and say, you want to go see this show? They're like, yeah, let's go. Okay, let's go or not. I mean, that's important. It's not a don't dismiss it. It's like, yeah, if I want to go, I'll go. If I don't want to go, I'll go. It's a sample pack. You can just wander around and catch a snippet of things that you would never see. Chrissy's also... Chrissy, they're not on here. We hope they would be Mike and Denson, but Chrissy's one of those that are like, yeah, let's go. Let's see where we can get. Anytime, anywhere. Anytime. Yeah, let's do it. I just love that. I think that's so important to this whole experience. Where did Hillary go? Where did Hillary go? Did she jump off the back porch? Is she gone? She must have went to the porta potty. Yeah. I didn't realize we were on Skype. I'm sorry, Microsoft teams. I'm sorry that you wanted to... Hillary's back. It's because Brad relegated me to the back porch in the white house. I didn't relegate you to the back porch. You could be sitting in the next room. It would just been weird if we were sitting here on this microphone. Yeah. It's so strange. He doesn't like to share the mic. It's okay. It's fine. He likes that big black thing all to himself. Yeah. I'm happy back here anyway. Nick, what did you do this weekend in honor of Bonnaroo? Did you do any Bonnaroo-ish things this weekend? I made electronic music in my garage last night with my neighbors. We don't do that at Bonnaroo. That's not what we do. That's the closest thing I did, too. We don't do that. That's cool, though. Yeah. It was good. Did it make you feel guilty? No. I was happy. Okay. What about... Wait a second. You find guilt with that, but you don't find guilt when you go and have fun without us. That's not fair. That's not fair at all. What are you talking about? You had an experience making music without us, and you didn't feel guilt. But when you're at Bonnaroo, you feel guilt. What instrument do you play? All of them. What do you pick up and play? Nothing. All of them. He plays the skin flute. Every one of them. Every one of them. Every one of them. You didn't think special? You didn't watch any shows, or you didn't get into anything for Bonnaroo Weekend? You got any reminiscing, any remorse, anything? Yeah, man. I mean, I felt sad most of the weekend, but I think I just feel sad all the time, so it's fine. Everything sucks. What do you want me to say? No, I didn't do anything. All right, I want to ask, because Brad and Taco and I have talked about it, and Chrissy and Hillary especially, when the weather hit Thursday, right? When we woke up, it hit Taco and Brad and I hard. We weren't considering Bonnaroo at all, and then all of a sudden we woke up and it was like, oh my god, this is amazing. Did y'all have the same? Yeah, it was like the universe just wanted to twist the knife a little bit more. We were already so sad about not being there, but then the weather was just like, man, just twist the knife. It was unbelievably perfect, even in Louisiana. It would have been one of those weekends, and we don't have many of these, where camp is the most fun place, right? Where camp is our favorite place. I don't know if we would have spent a lot of time at camp this year, because normally we hunker down in camp because it's hot and we're tired. I don't know if we would have done that this year. I think we would have been going anywhere, any place, any time. We would have been out in GA if we could have, just to be out amongst it because it was so pretty. Bold statements from the grad. Make a swatting way Nat. We would have been in GA only if you got carted there. That's the only way we would have been in GA. I didn't know that somebody could come into my world and be a bigger diva than me. But Nick has found the avenue. I love camp so much, and I feel like camp is the reason why we always keep coming back, but I don't know if we would have really seen each other as much as we normally do. I hadn't thought about it that way. Now we would have seen Brian Stone plenty because he never leaves. Denson would have just been sitting there the whole time. Where is Brian Stone? I'm texting Denson now, hoping to hear. I don't know where Brian Stone is. You can't have a proper camp nut butter experience without everyone knocking on Brian Stone. It's like a sport. It's our national pastime. It is a national pastime. Guys got the thickest skin of any human being I've ever known. What I love about it is it's unlike all the other sports where it takes skill and ability. Literally anyone can do it. Literally anyone can rip apart Brian Stone. It's good fun, but that's a great point. Between the weather and the lineup, we might not have actually seen each other. We had pizza. The pizza was very spicy pie-ish. It was. You're not even missing spicy pie right now? You didn't think about spicy pie at all? No, I'll be honest, man. Things suck so bad right now. Even watching a live show from years ago, it just bums me. Seeing a bunch of people all having a great time together. It's like, again, just the thought of being there, that experience of being around everybody, kicking in a thing that everybody's just... You really do personify radiating positivity. Pizza. Did you even make a Cray Musty? You didn't make a Cray Musty? I did do hot dogs. I guess that counts. Did you really? Yeah. Yeah. Man, I'd love a Cray Musty. Man, a Cray Musty would just blow up the spot right now. Seeing Hillary's Bloody Mary right now is really... I wish I could make one and share one with you, Chrissy. The Central Sunday Bonnaroo. So perfect. Just another one. Was it last year that the rain, that we got hit with the lightning? Yeah, we're about to get hit with lightning too. It was about to rain in Manchester. 2018. Was it two years ago? Yeah. But I think there was a rain shower coming today. Oh, there he is. Oh, wow. Wow. There he is. Oh, I love it. He's rolled out of bed and made... On brand two? Oh, yeah. I got to get the grass cut before it rains. I did half of it and I'm going to have a beer and then I'm going to go back. What kind of questionable life decisions are we disrupting right now, Brian? It's actually pretty bad, but it's all going to be okay at the end. Brian's literally wearing every beer brand. The only thing that's consistent is he's drinking Miller Lite and pissing it. It's the only thing that's consistent. What about the... Whose tent did you crawl out of this morning? Who'd you stay with last night? I was all by myself last night. Well, that's a first for Bonnaroo Weekend. That's a first. What is the... Welcome the whipping boy. I have said for 15 years... I wonder if Brian would see some music today. Yeah, Brian, who are you going to see today? I don't have the line up pulled up. Okay. His name is Every Year. You can guess. Yeah. My first guess for Brian is hell, hell, hell, far, hell, far, hell, hell, far, hell, far. I can't wait. Well, Lana Del Rey's canceled, so we could have missed that one. He canceled as a performer or a person. I'm going to say Brian and I were going to go to Flogging Molly's together and get in a fight. That was going to be a good day. By the way, hey, Chloe, thank you for reaching out and trying to defend me. I don't know if you guys saw that. She was pissed off that she didn't get to watch my back in a fight at Flogging Molly today. It's pretty funny. Nobody's going to take a swing at Dad. Nobody's doing that. I know, right? I'm going to walk in and he's like... Most people think you're a cop. They're not going to... You're not going to fight with your Bonnaroo. I don't know, if you go to a Flogging Molly show and don't get punched, I don't think you were really there. That's my point. That was my point. You got to go and get in a fight, otherwise you didn't go to the show. Yeah. Kind of in the name. Brian, who are you saying to... By the way, who was the band you're most excited about this whole weekend? I honestly haven't looked at this lineup in quite some time because I've been just trying to out of sight, out of mind on it. I'm forgetting how incredible it is as I look at it right now. I'll just go with your first question today. I guess it wouldn't surprise you to say I'd probably swing in for Green Sky Bluegrass at some time. Maybe Grace Potter if I'm nearby, Leon, Vampire Weekend, Tame, Lana Del Rey if I could fit it in. All the time. Like Vampire Weekend? I do now. Are there new albums? Have you heard it? Yes, Brian. You don't like that. Yes, I do. I do now. I understand them now. Get out of here. I understand them now. He likes it like he likes the shins, Brian. Exactly. It's like he just likes the shins. He wants to sway. If they played a whole new album, that'd be a perfect show. And then you'd walk back and say, hated it, never seeing that again. Exactly. Who else? Who else are you going to see this weekend? Geez, I forgot Ismael was there. I forgot about him. Boy, is there anybody that was forgotten about more in this lineup than Jason Ismael? I've heard zero people talk about him. Made quite a few rounds over the years, I guess. Yeah, no kidding. All of these shows Nick would be at, by the way. You're going to see Nick at all of these Green Sky Bluegrass, Vlogging Molly. All right, so of all of us that are on, Miley Cyrus, were we all going? Absolutely, yes. Yeah, not you, Nick. We did not miss it. Nick, when did you become so grumpy? I'm not grumpy. I wasn't going to go to that show. He's too cool for the room. The only reason why I'd go to that show is the potential for Dolly Parton. That is the one reason why I would go to that show. That's a good one. You know what else show he was going to go to? Not for a single Miley Cyrus song. Oh, I mean, that's separate to the question. None of us like Party in the USA, Nick. None of us. None of us are like, shit, this song is such a classic. I can't wait until they get to that second guitar solo. Nobody's ever said the songs are good. It's just a fun experience. And it's Miley. What do you like? What does that mean? That's the only song I know. So you don't like her music, you're just going because it's Miley? That's what we did with Cardi B last year. Yeah. Yes. I can actually say I like some of Cardi B's music. I can't say that about Miley Cyrus. Oh, come on, wrecking ball. Is that a good song? Right now you're swinging in on a wrecking ball. You are Miley Cyrus. I like that as a rock and roll team, man. It's like, you know, a good time, like wrecking ball. If you want to have a good time, put on Miley Cyrus. You know the song that gets me hype every time I wake up in the morning? Wrecking ball, Miley Cyrus. What other song I know? I can't wait until they get to the second guitar solo in that one. I just said that. Okay, so the other thing that's going to shock you, and Nick has been dying to say this, but the other show that he was not going to go was Lizzo. I didn't scratch it off. I'm not as excited as everybody else. I never said that, man. I would definitely be at Lizzo. No, you did not. You said, you said, I have no interest in seeing that garbage. I did not say that. Direct quote. I didn't say that, and not a direct quote at all. Misquoted. Here's a direct quote. I made her. I broke her. That's a direct quote. I never said that. Okay. I broke her. I'm so happy I broke her. Look at this Instagram post. Well, mark the time. It only took 32 minutes to get the first insult of an artist that Brad is best at. Finally, 32 minutes. I knew it was going to come eventually. Oh, man. Could you just see if she can join the call? Why don't you, why don't you reach out real quick and see if she can. Hit number one or two on that speed dial and get. She's number one, two, and three. That's just. Girls. I forgot. Brittany was here too. Yeah. Yeah. Brittany's two. Yeah. Here it comes, Nick. Here's it. Here it comes. What is that? Brittany's a definite like, yeah, you got it. Okay. All right. I just want to hear you try to lie your way out of that one too. Okay. But the solo show is great. And I really am bummed out about her specifically because I think that solo show would have like exploded this year. It was so good when we saw it. And then. And then we got to sort of like take the next step. And man, she talked about an artist that got really totally totally screwed out of it. And the other one's at O'Brien. You know, at O'Brien had that. What I think is a really great album. And this is going to be his only chance to be a solo artist and. Nope. That's not happening anymore. Cause I knew it. Radio has got heads got a new album coming out next year and they're going to do a tour. And then they're going to do a live show. And then they're going to do a live show. So that's a really great album. And then the other show today. Wasn't there. A couple of people from talking head. Yeah, that's the turquoise. Yeah. Would have been at that. Yeah, for sure. Me too. I don't think that you would have been man. Like, I don't think you have taken into account how stacked Friday was. I mean, I think it was a really good show. Yeah. I think it was a really good show. Yeah. Definitely. We see them at songbirds. We did. We did. That was, that was the last concert that I saw live before. Same. Same. That's weird. Who would have thought. Cause we only, we went to that show on a whim. We did. It was, it was like a Wednesday night. Yeah. Yeah. It was also not, it was also not with the talking heads people either. Yeah. It was just your cause. Yeah. Not that you would have been, but it was a good show. Yeah. I mean, you know, I mean, it's a good show. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, I'm not the Brad. But. We don't know what would have conflicted. But it's my life. That's an easy one. That was an easy one. So stone what, what. What were you going to. Hype up and then then not see this weekend. Pearl jam. I'm not sure. There's always one. Oyster. Pretended to fan and wouldn't have ended up going. That's a great answer. That's a beautiful answer. I wanted to see that. There's so much stuff. I'll legitimately like that. I don't pretend to like, except for oyster head. They're really not that good. I mean, they are, but they're not prime is primus is perfect for you to pretend to like, and absolutely never listened to. And primus is also on the lineup. I would have seen primus. I wouldn't have seen primus too. Cause I listened to them a lot when I was a kid. I know all the rules. New stuff. They weren't playing any of those. They weren't playing any of those. All they were playing. Right. Well, they were covering a, a farewell to Kings by rush. Yeah, that's right. Yeah. Yeah. That would have annoyed me. I don't like. Yeah. I don't like that. I don't like that. I don't like that. I hate more than rush. So. Same question. Cause Chrissy. Chrissy's the. Chrissy's just cool. I mean, I'm just going to go ahead and say it. What was the one you were going to go. What was the one that you had sort of tucked away? No way you were going to miss. Ooh. Okay. See, I blocked out the lineup just for my own mental health. I'm not going to miss it. I'm not going to miss it. I'm not going to miss it. I'm not going to miss it. I'm not going to miss it. I'm not going to miss it. The one that strikes me as. I wouldn't miss it. That I actually can still recall right now is Nellie doing country grammar. Yeah. Yeah. I wanted to say that earlier. But that's. I would have been there with you. I think, I think that we was going to be one of those. Nellie was going to be one of those shows. Did we do that late night? Big boy show. Yeah. Last year. Yeah. Yeah. We talked about that with Jim Gucci main last year. And then. Yeah. But you guys. So, so T. So Nellie was going to be one of those shows that we all said. Oh my God. I can't wait to go late night to Nellie. We would show up late night to Nellie and it would be so unbelievably packed. We would say for 10 minutes and say, let's go back to camp. Exactly. And then we would go back to camp and we would do the show. There's just no way that that was not going to be an absolute shit show. Of a, of a, of a thing. Where are we going? Nick? Where are you taking us? It's raining, man. I got to go in. Yeah. I had a feeling it was going to rain today. What about that? Fresh fade on what do you got a new, you get a new haircut. I got it. I got a quarantine cut like. A couple of weeks ago. You're not happy with it. No, I'm perfectly happy with it. Are you. I'm not happy with it. Seven brush my hair today. Where are you? Are you saying on, where did you go? You don't. I guess he's done. All right. Well, thanks for joining us. All right. Nellie. Nellie, what was the other one? Was there another one? Oh, welcome back. Friday. I'm so excited. So insanely good. I'll have to look back at the lineup. That's the only one that hasn't been talked about yet that I could. I can remember. Brian stones doing Microsoft Excel work for some reason. What spreadsheet do you need to get out right now? Are you doing data entry? No. I'm responding to some messages here. This is. I'm not talking about your D you're sliding into people's DMS. Corey said he got it. You got a hold of him. And he's asking me some stuff and I'm telling them to get back to you. Just real quick. That's all. So yes. Thank you. Why don't you. You bro. Hey. That's work right there. Thank you. Okay. Cool. Sounds awesome. You guys are so. Actually. What's up? You know, this is what we do. This is Bonnaroo. I got to be honest and I'm like, I'm not going to say I'm going to do this. I'm like, I'm going to do this for a minute. Well, Some of us are doing depositions. What did you think of where in the woods last year? What did you think about it? Did you like it? Or are you too blasted? Yeah, I didn't know. I liked it. I like a good journey. Just to see something different. Okay. I liked it. Yeah, there was the dancing. Which is always a good, good fun. Yeah. Yeah. Look at that. Wake up Stone. Come on. I saw it. You were totally moving. This is his fresh out of some randos campus site. Look that he's pulling off this morning. Fresh out of a. That's all I'm last night. There's no glitter. I'm so excited. This is amazing. Mayor, how are you mister mayor? Nice to see you. Good to see everybody. How's it going? Good. Good. Good. Good. Little today is the first day of swamp. It's been a swamp. Yeah. I'm sorry. What is that, Brian? Said I gotta bail out for a week. I'll be here for a minute. I'll be back shortly. Why? Why? Just I'm trusting you. Why? Just got here. Just got here. What are you? Where are you going? I gotta I don't have time to explain. Alright, I gotta I'll be back. What's wrong with you? You're not a human being. You know that you don't act like a human being. You don't interact like a human being. Let me go. I wanna talk to Denson. I wanna hear from him. He's gonna hear from Denson about Brian's head is still there though. Brian's head is still present. That's a good before we talk to Denson. I think it's a chick. Before we talk to Denson, the the the one of our favorite campsite stories ever is when some rando girl walked into camp saw all of our friends and said, who's she? That's a that's a chick. And then, Brian is sitting literally right in front of him. He said, that's me. Yeah. But really, look at that face. So, he says, nope. So, serious. No, it's not. He's like, I'm right here. It's me. Denson, what's what are you what are you up to, buddy? You sad about this week? Of course. Uh yeah. Yeah. And as well as Brian, you know, we're trying to not pay attention to that right now. No doubt about it. I ran out, went to the market, tried to find some fresh tomatoes, you know, got caught in the storm, just trying to keep it normal. We told us, we told the story, we told the story yesterday, I told the story to Barry as to how we found our campsite, the one that we come back to every year and it's because you traveled that one year, you walked across the land, round and round and round and like, this is the highest camp site in the world. It's next to the Porta John's. He's like, this is where you want to be. If you didn't leave on so many Mondays and you had woken up with like 18 inches of water around your vehicle and tried to strike camp on an occasion or two, you go to the high ground. Go over the high ground. So, that's I thought about and I I totally threw you under the bus, Denson, yesterday or the other day, I apologize because I was upset and I had Barry was upset but but yeah, he is the guy. Denson is the guy and everybody, if you're lucky, you camp next to somebody like this at Bonnaroo. That's a great point. When you when you pull up, you're like, you know, if I only had a thing that would do this, and it's like, well, I've got that. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, you know, if you're going to get a long sticky thing, you need whatever Denson's got and that's his dick. A long sticky thing. We'll keep it with that. That's safe and safer than a lot of the chats that have gone across this board but I mean, Denson's got it in the truck and you know, it doesn't matter any. Sorry, there goes the motorcycle. What's the strangest thing that's actually in your truck right now? I'm like, I'm going to bring a pizza bag warmer. From like community to pie. From like feeling like a rider like six months ago. You know, I'll bring that back. When did you become a Uber Eats driver? Yeah. This is great. I have no intention of delivering anybody a pie. I cleaned my entire truck out the other day and like folded it back up and was like, I really need to take it to those guys. They're probably going to be like, I've been mine has always been a mic stand that Mike Dewar gave me three years ago. It's been sitting in the back of my car for no apparent reason. I keep taking it with me everywhere I go. Yeah. Alright, let's let's see if we all have a favorite dancing story. Mine clearly is the morning the Saturday morning. We were walking to go get poutine and I remember it was like a night and they were doing sound check and they were running bird noises through the speakers. Do y'all remember is Brad and Nick. I know and we stopped and and then it's like, I don't think that the North American warbler was native to Tennessee. I'm like, I can't this be like slipping in non-indigenous birds like that. Like that will **** up somebody's home room. Like, it's a it's a good thing I did not. They didn't like set me into a tailspin like it was an anomaly. We all went about in this non-indigenous birds. What are you doing? I'm not even running some non-indigenous bird sounds to or or non-native. It's just like they don't live here. It's just like that for birds like exactly you needed to tell you. You're the only one. Oh my god. Denson was there. It was there actually somebody that you wanted to see this weekend or something. What are you going to do? Uh now, there's a pretty solid lineup. Yeah. There's a lot of stuff I was going to get out for. Uh of course, your girl, Lizzo. Tones and I, you big Tones and I fan. You're going to, you're going to dance monkey it. Probably not so much. I had to pass by to watch the interest. You know, I I like to be a fly on the wall. There's probably nothing I wouldn't have passed through. You wouldn't, you would have gone to Lizzo, you know, and you know, participating. Yeah. Okay. Participation. I think it would have definitely had the energy that would be unique to her experience. I mean, given what she's done this calendar year, that would have probably been her biggest. You know, it it I I don't know what the pandemic would have done though. Uh if if pandemic didn't exist, I don't know what the year would look like but uh Lizzo has not been on the radar of anybody in six months, five months. I wonder if we even care about that. I mean, I think it's probably because of the show thinking that it was going to be the show to see a botter in February but now in June, I'm looking around like Lizzo's been nowhere to be found. Um and. The circumstance, she's she's carrying a lot of, she catches a lot of heat and flak for kind of the stance that she takes, you know, I don't blame her for kind of kind of bowing out, backing off a little bit but I still think her show would have been a crazy set and I'm just going to remind you, I'm going to make sure that I'm going to make sure Denson knows this too but uh Nick did not want to go to that show. I'm making this clear. He did not want to go. You're making this up. You're making this up. I'm not. You're not making it clear. You're making it up. Right. You said specifically, I'm not going to see Lizzo. No, I said I'm not going to see my you hate. You said I hate all the songs. It's the number one song in the country like I hate it. I didn't say that. I don't like it as hell though. No, I do like it as hell. I don't like uh what's the other one? Juice. No, juice is great. No, it's great. Okay. I got you the phone Oh, what are you? I'm out of here, man. Can we help you? Look, Brian's Brian's his background looks like mine. Yeah, no kidding. What are you doing? I had an exit out of this. That's not a cat. That's the only being in his life that loves him. Did he drop? Brian, what are you doing? I'm trying to use my phone. I miss this so much for Brian man. Is there a reason why you decided to walk away? Wait, wait. Are those the socks? Can we see the socks? Those are the socks. There they are. There they are. Missing the traditional Bonnaroo burn though. Yeah. No, it's already happened. What? What? Seriously, how do I exit out of this stupid **** app? Why? Why are you trying to leave? We're still on the call. This is this is still good show right here, Brian. Is something on fire, Brian? Are you? Is there an emergency? This is entertainment. This is the history. This is the history. The telecommunications here. What is this view too? I can't even see everybody. It's just like, was that a was that a non was that a non-indigenous cat by the way? Yeah. Alright. Sparrow for damn sure. He's an out cat. Are you in a a murder seller, Brian? That's what it looks like. I don't know why I can you can see. I closed everything out but I still got all the don't do anything that I don't know why I can't do it at all. Like, oh, I don't say anything. Brian, don't go to the porta potty right now. Yeah, don't take a shower or anything. Gross. Well, so, Brian Stone's options right now would be taking a shower. I just he's at home. Why not? I have no idea. So, Jensen, you've been to everyone, correct? No, first two I missed. So, you missed first two. Yeah. I was there for one day and two oh two. I went up on a Saturday and jumped the fence. I wasn't there the whole weekend but I do get I do get credit for showing up at least for a minute. You're you're only there every first day. Miss the next three and then I've been every year. So, this is just a way for Barry to humble brag around the room. This is just a way for him to go around the room and so, look at me guys. Look at me. Yeah. You went early. Right? Cuz you had you had kids, right? Yeah. Just the one but extended a child. Yeah. Coolest kid. The coolest kid. Uh and then the rest uh rush. You're probably two years. Last two years. Yeah, I've I've gone the last two years. This would have been my third. Nick, you've been to a bunch early and then same. You had family. Yeah, I missed you. I was 16. Yeah. Um maybe 17. I can't remember. I think I think Nick wasn't there. I think you can't understand you Brian. We don't know what to say. It was my first year. I can't remember. It was the year after LCD. You took a year off. You took a year off after LCD. Yeah. Oh yeah. Back to back to Tame Impala for a second. He said that was the show you wanted to see but the but we didn't get to Hillary liked a lot more than we did because we had just came off of the LCD show but I don't remember us like loving the Tame Impala show. Who why stop putting words in my mouth. I love it. God. I love it. Like it was a like you're so inaccurate with everything you said on this podcast. I'm going to say that fact checkers, please go back to all the work podcast and talk about it. I'm going to go back to the show. He deals in his own reality. I mean, it's not even close. It's not that year was amazing because I'll tell you what happened right at LCD Sound System. I know I know what you, myself, and Hillary did. We left LCD and we were smiles and grins ear to ear and then I walked up to the stage and there was a crowd in the back and there were people there. We walked around to the side and they're like it was the strangest thing. I was with my friend John and and the people were just like, hey, we were waiting on you. Come on in and like they just let us come all the way up to the stage. Yeah, and creep around the the front and then yeah, I love that set. I always love that set. They were there. I feel like the first year I went to the show, it was this tent. Yeah, I remember that show but look, I just remember, I remember us saying that was good but it was hard because it was after LCD because we had just that brand. I think that's what you know. No one else said that. I'm pretty sure that was a we. I'm pretty sure that's not a we. I think usually, I I love it. I think it was a Brad like three years later. You've probably said that in your head. Yeah, he was like, everyone's those kids are okay. They're like, they're like okay, there it is again. Look, I I get it. It's fine. I feel like this one is better. Oh, dear god. Yeah, that was the best show I've seen this year at the end like in the oh, you saw it last calendar year. Oh, good. Unbelievable. Oh, man. They're production value like over the top. Yeah. Totally was looking forward to that set very much. Yeah. I mean, on the show, it would have been epic. Yeah, it would have been epic. Yeah, indeed. With that energy, that kind of crowd based stateside like it's just unique. It's like pond last year. Yeah. You know, and then just go off when they, you know, they've been covering that Lady Gaga song he wrote and like they've just been doing really cool stuff with like this one wrecking ball. Yeah, that one. That one, Brad. Also, also, it would have been one of those moments to see a band that you know, you're like, you're like, I'm on the witch and then you watch them on the what and that is always special. You get in a way they kind of evolved. Yeah, like that would have been incredible. And then, too, I just I just love their sound. Like, I love that. It's just this what they do with their. Oh, my god. Hang on a second. I'm sorry to interrupt but Brian's cat is so much more interesting than he is. Uh the cat is walking around the house and he's like, I'm going to kill him. Come on, kitty. Let's make this happen. Sorry, Nick. Go ahead. I saw a kitty. I'm very excited. I lost my thought. Yeah, dude. You remember how good the sound was. What were we talking about? I don't know. Dick. Dick. No one you know, you're trying to talk. I'm talking about Dick, right? This this thing, this thing that Nick does when he talks, do you ever notice like he's he's like he's he's like, who are you looking at when you're talking? Where are you? It's a social media filter. It this juncture, some people use them to kind of keep them out of trouble. Yeah, man. You're going to post this on some junk website, I'm sure. I'm going to post it on the we we by junk website. I mean, the what podcast? Yeah, the one that you designed. and walk away. I don't know if I've ever told you the story but he goes, he comes over one night and he's like, hey, so we gotta, I gotta, I gotta make a gotta make a podcast website. He's like, alright, I got an idea. I'm going to draw what the website's going to look like and then he he just does like this, right? And and uh like an hour and a half goes by and he's still walking around the pen and paper and I say, Nick, are you going to finish drawing whatever you're drawing? He's like, oh yeah. So I'm thinking of like something that's post responsive and I swear to god, he's like, I drew a square. I drew a square and then handed it to me. I was like, looks good, Nick. Good work. Can you get around that? Good work. You made it happen and you know what? I think it's a pretty good website. Did pretty well. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Turned out pretty nice. It's worth it. Yeah. You made it happen. The square is the cornerstone of the website. I love the guy. Just make a square. Make a square. Now, if you're going to go to the next round, I guess I would give the world. Nick's not going. He told me the other day, quote, I hate honor. I'm not going ever again. This quote is is that a we that was that was a quote from Nick and Nick literally said those words. Nick's not going to go in September. Chrissy, you're going to go in September. I would like to. I don't know. It'd be so different. It's hard. Part of what I love about Bonnaroo is is the camp and the same and the everybody kind of coming through. It's hard to tell if if I would be comfortable with that many people in September, even if it is even in September, huh? Well, in February, February, I was fine with that. I had this I had this nightmare that we were walking from this to camp and a a wall of shirtless men were walking towards us and we had to figure out a way to walk through them and I don't know where this dream goes. I know. I know. You're really excited. I told this story early. It wasn't a nightmare. It was a dream. I had this I had this image. He's like, I had this fraternally mission. I love how I love how Nick loved that joke so much. He finished it and then as soon as he was done, he went to this. He knew it was coming. He dropped that. Get out of your door. It's a telling of this story and then we had to walk and they wouldn't and they wouldn't like separate so we had to like wedge ourselves in between these sweaty men and I just remember that their sweat than covering me and totally panicking. I mean, I don't like being touched at Bonnaroo. I don't like anything about the the the germ part of it. So, I'm with you. I don't know how in the world I would do this. What Harry? I don't know. I'm like, don't touch me. You know, don't shake my hand. He hates Hi-Fi Friday. He won't high five anyone. It's tough. He's got the spirit. It's tough and so like I would be told the story the other day, Hillary. I don't know if you listened to remember last year when Doyle came out of the porta potties and touched him on the cheeks which is still one of my favorite laugh out loud. Very very good story. We're gonna talk about it. I'm gonna talk about it. No clubs allowed. It was so funny. What what what you wouldn't have brought the pizza bag to camp. Would you know? That's the the weirdest thing in my truck at this moment because there's no Bonnaroo. I would have read that. But you wouldn't have brought it with you. No. Although. No. I mean, you know, spicy pie. I could have brought like like a pizza bag. I mean, that would be a yeah, really great idea. Buy 10 pies to go home with and put them in the put them in your pizza oven. Exactly. Sunday night. Which would be a totally dense and thing to do. Show up with a pizza bag full of spicy pies back in chat. For we've all been like, of course that just happened. This is a really great idea. Spicy pie in chat for the struck. I just had you could just bring. No, I'm not going to do that. I'm just going to take the hot take the hot microwave bag that you have and take it by the pie and then bring it back to camp for us. Doable. Oh my god. wear a domino shirt and I think that we've got this. That that'd be kind of a slight the spicy crew. Don't you think? Man, I don't know. Dom is the guy that crusts. How long do you think a pie can stay hot in one of those bags like? There would be no difference than like a than a pizza bag. Could you could you keep that pie like for a couple hours back at camp? Nice and hot. You know? Oh yeah. Absolutely. I'd say hour and a half. What do you what do you what do you have in mind? I'm just like. Wow. Hour and a half. I'm thinking about like how you can get it back to camp. Eat dinner. You know, blaze a couple and then we've got a hot pie. Yeah. What is the problem here? We can just bring a microwave. We can just bring a microwave. You know what? You know what? I'm so disappointed in. You know, I I really was going to have chickens at camp this year. I'm so disappointed. I'm not going to have live chickens. That would have been good. That would be a great idea. Very excited. You want to have like a little like a farmstead. If you don't want to be, if you don't want to be like in a farmstead, you can have the mailbox. Yeah, the mailbox. We had the mailbox. Yeah, I was going to have chickens. Look, if you don't want to have a microwave, why don't we have a toaster like one of those conventional toaster of like eat medium who the hell microwaves anything? Why can't we just build a pizza oven? A brick pizza. A clay one. Yeah, clay and brick. Yeah. Alright, now you're just talking Lord of the Rings guys. Yeah. Wood burning stove next year. Yeah, I'm the idea guy and now you guys go go make it. You're going to have to pack it in your bus though. We need one of those. Yeah, it's not going to fit. It's not going to fit in the Volkswagen. It's not going to fit with the couch and the 600 square feet of carpet on the generator and the marquee. Now, Denson, have I ever brought a bad idea to camp? No, because you're not going to have a good idea. So, well, yes, so maybe every time but lots of other bad ideas to other people vehicles that are relegated to like actual real cars when you like little like shuttles when we found you in your dilapidated camp. Yeah. Yeah. Which was just a tent and a seat. There's the hobble was there's the umbrella for shade. Tell me, tell me an idea that I've brought. We can agree that you used to camp in a Volkswagen under an umbrella. Yes, that's true. Behind the tent. It's true. Okay, just checking. It's true. It's really been the collective that is elevated camp nut butter but is there but but anything that has been added, do you dislike any of them? All of the the the the the the the the the the the the the the the the the the I think the mirror the full length mirror. I think you took it too far. Well, we should probably probably have to throw in for anybody that's joining now. Hillary gets credit. I mean, camp nut butter is camp nut butter because at one point, she made nut butter which is a legitimate. in more ways than the other. I tried to take my nut butter at the they tried to during the search when we came in, they tried to confiscate my nut butter and I was so upset. Yeah, we were that is like cashew, organic, honey, maple, nut butter and they're like, what? It was two years ago. Two years ago, we had the couple from England walk in and want to buy actually actually ask us if they could buy a jar of nut butter. Yeah, there's there's an opportunity. So, well, I do come down to execution. You know, ideas are cheap. So, you're welcome. Oh, is that right? Yeah. Nick's back outside. Must be not be raining anymore. Hang on a second, guys. Beautiful. Hang on a second. Bonnaroo MVC camp MVP of 2018 just came back. Bryan Stone. Welcome back. Welcome back. It's been a long time. Doesn't make it better. That's so long ago. It was so long ago. There's a lot of papers for a lot of people that year and still miss Pearl Jam in the pit. God damn it. Yeah, you went and left. Yeah. We had a way and you were like, no, we literally were walking you to the pit and you said, no, I want to meet up with this guy. What's he up with? Well, we met up where she said she didn't. She didn't stand me up but then after about one song in, she was gone. Quite literally, it might have been two. Do you think that she was offended by Pearl Jam or you? I don't know. What's the difference? We found Brad and I were leaving the pit and we found Bryan sitting in the grass by himself like with like a little bit of a collection about he had he had he had the status collection of empty Miller Lake can just surrounding him in a circle watching fireworks with this tear coming down his face because he had been abandoned by the love of his life in the pits because he loved Eddie Vetter more than he loved the girl that he was with. You spend more time paying attention to Eddie Vetter and saying how wonderful he was and she said, I don't know. I don't know. I don't know. I don't know. I forgot about it and didn't care and just enjoyed the show but about an hour afterwards and for the next four or five days, I was just irate. I was so mad because I saw all your posts, all your pictures, everybody down in the pit and I just started getting sadder and sadder and so mad. It's a bad did like decision. You know, that year though, that was like you could have just walked down there cuz there was like literally 100 people out in the pit and you could just see Pearl Jim. It was like, man. I was like, you could walk right down to the pit that year. I love the idea of Brian Stone standing in the back of the field and I just understand that nobody's here but I don't I don't want to work with the crowd. I'll stand back here. It's great as they are. Whatever they like to see, they're like the most underappreciated act ever of like race, bottom is main stage. Oh man, it was so good. It was just, it was just yeah. like I love them. Wasn't a big part of the conversation. Eddie Vedder went political. He went political. Yeah. And I'll be honest with you. I was surprised. Like, what? What? What? You saw that coming. That that was a perfect combination mixture of just a, I don't know, bad headline. I mean, I think Pearl Jam's loyal fans would come with the dead and can go anywhere until the day Pearl Jam. They don't have to go to Bonnaroo and both those two were bad headliners. You know, what was it? Tame on Friday? No, it was LCD. LCD and then LCD. was probably the most I guess I mean, I I never was an LCD guy so I don't know how exciting that was but it was good. You know, I'm not I'm not sure. I don't know. I don't know. about anything. depends on what the subject matter is, man. It was good. But whose dog is that? That's fine. Can I pet the dog? Can I pet the dog? Can I pet the dog? The crazy thing about that Pearl Jam show is is I don't even remember the show and I was there. The only thing I remember is seeing Brian afterwards. I don't know any. I don't remember anything about it. It was it was it was it was that pop **** that Hillary made us eat last year. It literally was just eating it and disappeared. Well, Brad, it was it was probably that Shirley but it also it was probably maybe not even probably my least favorite Pearl Jam show I've ever seen because it was the most boring simplified. Here you go for a general audience show. It was just it was just what the average kinda I know Pearl Jam fan. It was really lame show. I don't know if it was the original songs right but it just wasn't a good mix but you weren't impressed with that either. Brian Stone, musical critic. They played the **** songs right. Thank you for clarifying that they played their own songs correctly. I gotta head out. It's so good to see you. Break it down. Always the first one. Oh, yeah. She's gonna go. She's gonna go out and be out till tomorrow. We miss you already. We'll see you next year. We do miss you already. Bye. Bye. Bye. Bye. Bye. Bye. So, we bored with this chat or what? I'm gonna go ahead and start with the stars in. How about you? It's a fair question. This is Alright, Brian. Brian, I don't know what you. Uh huh. What's that? I'm still, I'm still marveling at Nick who can swing and sway at the same time. I just love it. I love it. Brian, what are your, what are your plans? What are your plans this weekend? Did you do anything to celebrate Bonnaroo? Did you do anything to celebrate Bonnaroo? Uh it wasn't very easy. Okay. But alright, it's fine. This is the most fun I've had all weekend and that tells you. But you don't do anything to like celebrate Bonnaroo though. Did you do anything Bonnarooish? Like we had pizza that was sort of spicy pie. We ate crawfish like a crawfish. We had the crawfish boil on Thursdays. What else did we do that sort of Bonnarooish, Hillary? Oh, we went to Snake and Jake's. I forgot to tell you guys about that. We actually went to the actual real Snake and Jake's in Bonnarooish. It's the smallest one but it's the tiniest little shack of a bar that you've ever seen in your life and apparently it's only a place that you go to at four o'clock in the morning. Uh just like the actual Snake and Jake's in Bonnarooish. Yeah. Exactly. They're open from 7 PM to 7 AM. You go there and hop when like everything else is closed. When everything's closed. When everything's closed, that's where you go. Is that is that the inspiration for the the Snake and Jake thing at Bonnarooish? Yeah. So, if you remember, if you remember, if you remember the um Superfly and the connections to New Orleans, that Superfly NAC had when they first started Bonnaroo, they wanted to bring a bunch of New Orleans stuff to uh to Bonnaroo. That's why they used to have that parade. That's why they used to always have Trombone Shorty and New Orleans based musicians early on in the year or early on in the the run and then, you know, at some point when Superfly disconnected and then the parts of it sort of just went away. But Snake and Jakes is still there. Snake and Jake's still there. I've been there one time and I just watched. It's an institution. I wish you could see it though. The real Snake and Jakes is like a fraction of the size of the Bonnaroo Snake and Jakes. Like it is a tiny little shack in a neighborhood. It's it's a 10 by 20 room. It's 10 by it's tiny. It's absolutely tiny. It's not what I expected at all. It's just unbelievable. I can't believe it. Yeah. So, what else what else what what else do we do for Bonnaroo Weekend to celebrate? I mean, we sat outside with friends and drank until after midnight which is weird for us. Yeah, that was new. Yeah. Yeah. I don't know. We have friends down there? Our neighbors. Yeah. We. Yeah, I heard it. I got it. I got it. Look, it's hard. It's hard to answer. Alright, so I'm starting to, I think Brian's question is pretty good. Are we bored yet? I'm ready to go. Not a few background. How do you do that? I'll tell you that you like that 11th. That's magic. That's some good stuff. You've upped your game. Unlike Brad. I I don't I don't pretend to have a game. Yeah. Brad, I know you know your answer but I mean, we we're we're feeling pretty confident that this is going to happen. No way. It shouldn't. Yeah. But go. But is it going to happen? Probably not. Yeah. And as you mentioned, post somewhere, the weather would probably be worse since September. Oh, the weather will absolutely be worse in September. Yeah. And it couldn't be couldn't be better than what we just had but I was going to say, in case you guys didn't get expressed since you're at NOLA like Tennessee saw the best bonner room in the world. It's been the most depressing. It's been the most depressing part of all of this. Even here at Denson, it's really nice. Even in Louisiana. Nice. Man. It was a perfect weekend. We had showers here this afternoon. Who's to say if it would have hit Manchester but the rest of it, you know, Thursday, Friday, Saturday would have been as good as it got. I don't know what you're talking about because I was in the park over the weekend. Yeah. With Manchester Park at Wendy's. No, I was in, I was in Winchester which is like 40 minutes away from Manchester. Yeah. Right on the side of the mountain, right? Yeah. And it was there was like 50 people there and it was, you know, Rue Bus, it was Rue Fitness, Rue Tank Clan. It was it was a it was a small gathering. Okay. I hear a good thing about Winchester. We, you know, we had a beer and there was food. It was live music. Yes. There was a band. Yeah, Winchester is good as long as you don't go swimming in a creek, you know, with cops. I'm sure you guys guys. Cops chasing you. I'm sure you guys just like spread around COVID anyway. So, great job. Yeah. Yeah. He might as well been Ozark Pool. Yeah. Yeah. We were we were less than 50 people. It was, you know, the government said it's okay. Yeah. The government said it is okay. It's no worse than it's no worse than going to Applebee's recommended guidelines. Yeah. They followed the recommend. It can't be worse than going to Applebee's. No worse than going to Applebee's. It's no worse than going to Applebee's. Alright. Alright. Alright, Nick. You're you're getting summoned. Yeah, I'm out. I'm out. I love you all. Peace and love you. Love you. Love you. Love you all. Denson. Miss you. Love you. Give our best to Mikey D. So glad to see Denson and Mikey. We're gonna be happy stories. Indeed. That's an ember right there. Oh, I regret. It's assholes, assholes in here. Yeah. Elbows. Elbows to have. Alright, love you guys. Miss you. Miss you a lot. We'll see you uh in a year. Flip side. Alright. Peace. Bye. See you.
